Today, one of my friends made it to school. He has been sick recently, missing days out of the week. When I saw him, I greeted him with, "Were you dying yesterday?" Apparently he wasn't, but his grandmother really did. FML

Depending on how cool OP was with their friend, it's not too out of place to joke around during a greeting. It just so happened that OP accidentally made the joke at the wrong time

I think it was a little to early for his friend, it might not be so offensive but it can be a very emotional topic to be touched and given it happened recently means the wound would still be raw. Unlucky op maybe you can take him out for some lunch or something to help him cheer up.

Well I can't exactly blame you, but maybe next time just be a bit safer with how you greet a mate after their absence. I offer my condolences to your friend for the loss of his grandmother.

If someone's missing from school it's usually safe to assume there's a reason. Maybe next time you'll know to find out that reason before making jokes that could make you out to look like an asshole.

Hopefully if he's a good enough friend to forgive you. Otherwise sorry for you cause of how bad a slip up that was. Also for your friend for losing someone
