Wow! This also reminds me of a conversation I had with a wife of a newly appointed Circuit Overseer. We joined the congregation about 2 weeks before they left for the Circuit work so we didn't really know each other well at all. After serving for a few months, they came home for the district convention and I ran into her and she asked me how I was doing. I gave her a huge sime and told her that I was fine and had just found out that I was pregnant.
Her face contorted, she recoiled and said, "Ohh no! I'm so sorry!" I looked at her totally confused (thinking she must have me confused with someone else since we had only met briefly) and said - "No. There's no problem. I only have one child now" - expecting an immediate apology! After all, I had just told her I was pregnant - not that my mother had died! And she looked at me and said something along the lines, of "Well, I'm still sorry. I guess I was thinking about how I would react if it was me." I later told my husband it was a good thing I wasn't depressed over being pregnant because with a reaction like that I probably would've thrown myself down the stairs!
Needless to say, I never saw the need to speak to her ever again!
