I haven't heard "I'm sorry" so much since my father died. I hate when people say that. But I now realize this is better than the people who awkwardly avert their eyes, not realizing I've already seen the pity.
I guess I should just be thankful that aren't saying "something good will come of this" or "everything happens for a reason." That's even worse.
I look forward to next Monday when everyone has enjoyed their long weekend and long forgotten about this.
And just as I was venting about this, someone came in my office to have a real conversation about what happened without using any cliches. I so greatly appreciate that...
