Ever the optimist

Fri Jul 10, 2020 1:31 pm

A friend of mine is always smiling and being optimistic, on the worst-case scenario he always likes to say phrases like: "That's nothing" "It'll get better" "Bad weather never lasts" and stuff like that.

A couple of days ago we found out our neighbour returned home from his job out of town and found his wife and a man having sex inside his bed. He shot them both and then killed himself.

When we were talking about it in front of their house, my friend said: "Meh. It could have been worse".

When I heard him, I was kind of upset about how insensitive he was and, kind of annoyed I replied: "Come on man, how could have been any worse than that?"

He just shrugged and said: "Well,
if that husband had returned 2 hours earlier, I would be the one inside the third body bag".
