Today, I was working at my job at a bank. A couple was waiting in the lobby, and not being busy, I asked what they needed. They told me that they were applying for a loan, so I asked if it was for something exciting. It was to pay for their 12-year-old son's burial expenses. FML

You couldn't possibly have known that's what it was for, but maybe next time, be more general when asking what the loan is for because you never know if its for something good OR bad.

^ This. Couldn't have known, but it's a learning experience. Just like in retail, don't ask why someone is buying/returning certain items. (Example being returning baby clothes or diapers) People blurt things out dealing with grief. The couple who you asked could have said something else as an explanation until they got with a banker and started filing. Don't feel too bad, but keep it neutral next time!

Please tell me you didn’t follow that up with “YOLO!” That would not have been good...

Yes I would feel bad after making that comment. I take it you didn’t know.

That's more of an FML for the couple than you, sorry you were put in that position OP.
