icy_in_indiana tells us more.
To those who said I'm selfish for saying FML, I was just following the conventions of the site. Trust me, the situation was awkward for me, but I so feel so much more sorry for the lady who called. She was meaning to call who I assume to be family or a friend to ask for toilet paper, but instead called the grocery store. I stayed on the line for a short while, but since we're not allowed to take personal calls at work, I had to refer her to someone else. I can only hope that she found someone to keep her company.

That's a horrible situation :( sounds like she just needed someone to talk to.
Especially since it's the holidays... She must have really needed to feel some kind of connection to another person during a time of year that, most likely, held many warm but now bittersweet memories of times shared with her spouse. Much love to you, OP, if you managed to give her such a gift for Christmas.
You're an awesome person for staying on the phone with her. I hope you told her about any sales you had going on.
If she asked "is this so and so (store)" . You should've replied "no this is Patrick" and hung up.
I know it's weird to be in the situation you were in but I'm sure the woman on the phone was extremely thankful that you did stay on the line. Sounds like she had no one close to talk to about her husband and letting it out with you could have relieved her a bit.
