I’ve gotten this at least 5 times.. What do you want me to say to that? I usually just give an awkward… “Oh..I’m sorry, that’s too bad…”

OMG THIS and everything people should not be telling strangers. These are actual conversations I’ve had with people. 
"Hi, how are you?"
"My husband died about a month ago."
"Oh…I’m sorry…"
"He was terrible. I’m here a whole new wardrobe because he can’t tell me what to do anymore. (proceeds to cry, describe in detail how her husband died, and then buys clothing 30 years too young for her)"
"o_O"


"Hi, how are you?"
"Oh well…ok I guess. I got out of the hospital for this surgery."
"I’m sorry to hear that. But you’re better…now…?"
"Yes well…(proceeds to explain in detail what made them ill, their surgery, and then asks if I would like to see the incision)"
"…oh..well..no…"
