Today, for National Pet Day, we had a pet show and tell at work. A colleague of mine showed us a picture of her lemon tree. I remember she had a dog and wondered why she didn’t bring him, so I asked why didn’t she show her dog. Turns out he passed away a month ago. She burst into tears and ran off. FML
You couldn't take a hint that her lemon tree was her current pet?
You should have just burst into song,
"Lemon tree, very pretty,
and the lemon flower is sweet,
But the fruit of the lemon is impossible to eat."
not your fault if you didn't know. she'll be teary-eyed for months, but not because of you.
FYL for not knowing. She probably took the dog’s death pretty hard, which is understandable, and didn’t want to turn into a blubbering mess at work.
