Here is a list of things to never, ever say to people: To the heartbroken: -You'll meet someone! (Really, you know this? You're a clairvoyant elder? Then tell me when.) -What a jerk! (Umm...there's probably a reason why there's heartache and not cheering.) -You have plenty of time! (Perhaps on your timeline). To the grieving: -It'll be okay! (REALLY???? FANTASTIC!!) -It could've been worse...(It also could've been better.) -So and so has it worse. (Now I have two sads.) To those commenting on me watching Saturday Night Live: - ...not like back when it was good! Thoughtless Things People Have Actually Said to Me -When I was too stressed and lost a lot of weight: "Just 10 more pounds to go!" -When I got lithium poisoning: "You're looking great! Whatever you're doing, keep it up!" -When I got down to my healthy, natural weight: "So you have about 30lbs left to lose?"
