You ever have one of those people in your life that no matter what you say, she tops it? The 'I lost three pounds' and she says, 'that's great, I lost 100 pounds.'
I work with her. I said, "My SIL went into the hospital this weekend" and she said "My aunt died this weekend".
Our other coworker was saying that she's nervous because her mother is coming to visit and "we have a difficult relationship."
Topper girl says, "Well, my mother is dead."
Um... what? She's been dead over 20 years. So what? So I said, "Yeah, so is my mother. And we had a hard time too for many years. So what's the general problem with you and your Mom?"
And we got back to the conversation on hand.
Still... to respond with a 'my mother is dead' was both the funniest and most pathetic thing I ever heard.
