I’m sorry for your wife.

I was working with a client who thought we were buddies (although I never gave any sign to that effect). He used to tell me heartbreaking stories about his ex-wife, whom he didn’t like very much, but had no idea he was the villain in the story.

He told the story of his wife getting drunk at a party after a fight they had and how she made a fool of herself and he just left her there. He said it like it was funny, and when I wasn’t laughing:

Customer: You’re not laughing, are you? I guess you feel sorry for me.

No, jerk, I’m sorry for your wife.
