You’re Still Coming Into Work Though, Right?

| Working | July 19, 2017

(Sadly, our mom has passed away from aggressive cancer. While planning her funeral, my mom’s boss calls.)

Boss: “Hello, I’m calling for [Mom]? When will she be back from vacation?”

Me: *in shock* “She won’t be back. She’s dead.”

Boss: “You’re kidding, right?”

Me: “Nooo!”

(I started crying and my siblings were all crying beside me. The boss didn’t say anything for a moment but hung up. We didn’t hear from her again. Later, at the wake, I saw the boss come in, stare at the body, and then mutter “Huh. She really is.” And then leave.)
