About a month ago, a former work colleague sat down as I was eating lunch alone in a restaurant and angrily informed me, "I lost my Mom when she was 35. Your Mom was elderly. You don't have the right to grieve the loss of an elderly parent."
My reply: "Number one, Mike, grief is not a zero sum game, although given your superficial, self-absorbed nature, I'm not surprised you would think so.
"Number two: I didn't ask you to sit down with me, so leave. Or I'll ask the restaurant manager to help you."
I think we just live in a time when people feel emboldened to be jerks.
