Do men, and some women, not stop to think about that things are going to sound like out loud?
At one of our many stops along the way, some guy walked up to me to ask where I was going and where I was from. No big deal. When he found out where in CA I am he told me he lived near Stanford and asked if I knew where that was. I told him I know it well and spent a lot of time there with my husband and his many doctors.
So he asked if everything was ok with him and I explained that he was born with a heart defect and had a transplant, but passed away to complications. He asked when this happened, and I told him March and April.
This is when he turned into a real winner. Immediately he started in on how I shouldn't spend all my time grieving that I won't allow the good lord to put a new man in my life. If I spend all my time grieving, then I may miss a great buy, like the one standing in front of me.
Seriously? I was so dumbfounded that all I could do was look at him. I had no idea what I could say to that that wouldn't make a scene. Thankfully my daughter walked up to me at that time and the freak got scared and walked away.
Once I calmed down I told my mom that I had just heard the world's worst pickup line. She couldn't believe someone could be so insensitive.
