Lost mum a month ago. Had a horrendous day today. Went into cafe I used to take mum and owner asked how was she. Had to tell him she passed away. His resonse was "No" Why do people do that? Get home and find a note from Post Office telling me I have a surcharge to pay on an item. The final straw was a children's detange spray hich leaked on all my shopping. Think I deserve a glass of wine this evening.
Yes you do deserve a glass of wine glasgowgirl. I'm very, very sorry about your Mum. My mum died in April 3 years ago; I completely understand what you're going through. It's the little things that get to you. That cafe owner sounds like a complete idiot, to be honest. Luckily most people don't react to sad news in such a thoughtless way.
I am sorry to hear about your mum , enjoy your wine this evening .
And yes I agree the replying No when you tell them is really annoying , like you would be making it up ? But I don't think people think when they are giving news like this , they just turn to the script they have heard in the past .
