Today, at work, I asked a lady how she was doing. When she replied, I didn't understand her, and instead of asking her what she'd said, I just replied with, "Oh, that's good." What she'd said that I didn't understand was that her husband had just died. FML

ydi. never just nod and agree. that's like signing a contract without reading it first.

Today, I got asked how I was doing. Still affected from my husband's death, I told the worker about it. They just replied with "Oh, that's good". FML

I see the comments that survived clearly make no sense so I might have missed something not important but I am curious-how does being tiny make someone deaf now, O.o

Op- couldn't you tell it wasn't good by her facial expression? I'm sure she didn't share this information with a big smile on her face.

that's why communication is imp, dnt assume u retard

That's a good way of explaining it. 

Does anyone actually ever sit and read contracts through though? That's like reading the "Warning" label.

no no, I mean like you do in contract law. I don't mean just the usual terms of services..

OooOoh okay. That makes more sense, because I've never personally met someone who actually sits and reads before scrolling down and clicking " I agree." haha =P

lmfao I know right?! it's Like every now and again you have to accept iTunes new terms and conditions when downloading apps...and then it's like 58 pages of reading.. I was like WTF no one gonna read that shit ><

Seriously! I understand it's required for legal issues but come on...There needs to be a condensed version so reading it can be more realistic -_- I know it's way different, but it kind of reminds me of when movies flash that page-long legal thing right before it starts. You know, the one up for a whole .5 seconds where you can read the first 4 words? I know, different, but my mind just associates. =P

hahaha one of the firtst!!! lol ydi

so sad :( ... I do that all the time also, not understanding what someone says and just smiling and nodding. I guess I shouldn't do that anymore.. you kinda deserve it though OP.


boo hoo , tell her to get over it

#6 Wtf is wrong with you! Maybe I should murder your partner and see if you like it bitch


Dang that sucks OP! I've done that before, but it was a fiancé that died. The girl left the store crying:(

Ouch. Next time, just nod, it can look like you're just digesting information if you do it right. But it's far worse for her, poor woman.

I normally just lift my eyebrows a little and say "Oh really?" with no distinct expression and wait to see the facial expression accompanied by their response. ^.^ Then you at least know which general direction to head to finish the coversation.

yeah i do that too. or just nod and say "mhmm"
