It’s so weird how easily people open up to you if you just ask how they are sometimes

Like I was at work yesterday and I said to this woman “Hi, how are you?” and she told me “Well it’s been a week since my husband died” and went on for 10 minutes about the drama around the funeral and the thank-you cards and how everyone is trying to get at her money now bc he had a big life insurance payout and no one has bothered to check on her emotionally and I’m just like

I’m sorry I am just a lowly cashier but please take care of yourself
