Today, my boss delivered some flowers and a sympathy card signed by everyone in the office to my cubicle. The card said, "Sorry your mom died". My mom isn't dead. I don't know where they got the idea from and no one believes me. They said that denial is part of grieving. FML

I say go with it, milk this for all it is worth, see what else you can squeeze out of these people, paid time off work?

It sounds more like a prank to me seeing that nobody believes OP when they say she's not dead. If someone told me their parent wasn't dead I would believe them and not say its denial. Although, using a death in the family as a prank is low. I could be wrong though, and I guess there is a possibility the entire office is just idiots for not believing OP.

I was gonna say have her snap a picture of herself next to something with the current date and time on it, but that idea is even better.
Heck when she visits have her take the sympathy and flowers with her. Have her be like "these are mine now"

Going the wrong way about what? If anything, they seem to be just misinformed but are showing genuine sympathy. They're going about things the right way, but are misinformed on what's happening

in my opinion, if i try to tell someone my mom isnt dead, i expect them to believe me, not tell me "its all part of the grieving stage, youre just in denial"

Agreed. The fact that no one believes OP when they say their mom is alive and that the coworkers are all saying Op's in denial makes it sound like a prank to me.
