Today, a lady came for a death certificate at the city hall reception where I work. Reflexively, I asked if it was for her. FML

Years after the zombie apocalypse, when societies of the undead are starting to organize, that will be a completely valid question. No shame in being ahead of the curve, OP.

Reflexicly? Only the one form is for someone else in your department I take it, seeing as you were equally aware as a drive thru service worker (where zoning out is almost mandatory becuase monotany) or else you deserve the 'What?' stare you got.

If she works in a department that handles records like death certificates, she probably also deals in other official documents that are regularly sought by the person they pertain to (e.g., birth certificate, ID card)

I mean technically, it WAS for her... just not for her death, right? So maybe your phrasing could have been better but you weren't wrong per se!

At least, that's how I'd spin it to save my pride. ;-)

Today, while at work at a call center, I got a call from an elderly man who needed a new credit card because he'd accidentally cut up his own card instead of his wife's. Trying to be funny, I said "Trying to keep her in line, eh?" Turns out his wife had just died. FML

Today, I went to the restaurant I recently got a job at, to take the introductory three hour training course. Afterwards, I was told I wasn't hired after all. Why? The girl I was replacing suddenly decided she didn't want to move away and quit after all. FML
