Today, I was at a party and saw an old friend from college. I went up to her asking how she was and how her family was. She went on to tell me that her husband left her a month ago and started crying. I told her that he was an ass anyway and that she didn't need him. Turns out he died. FML
Definitely a FML. Assuming "my husband left me" means a separation/divorce is pretty reasonable, it's what most people say in that situation. I've never heard anyone using that phrasing to describe the death of their partner.
If somebody told me that their partner had left them, I'd automatically make the same assumption - as I think 95% of people would.
Who the hell refers to a spouse's death as them "having left him/her"? She brought it on herself for saying it like that.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
