Your friendly neighbourhood Goatman
Is it just me, or is anyone else sick of hearing that every time they tell someone a family member died? I get that it just means "i'm sorry that happened to you", and "i wish that hadn't happened", and i appreciate the sentiment, but it just gets kind of grating sometimes. Every single time i say it to someone, i know exactly what they're going to say. It happened 13 years ago. By this point it's not something you need to say "sorry" about, and you were the one who got onto the topic of what my mother is like. Just a minor annoyance, but was curious if it bothered anyone else, or if it's just my thing.
