I recently went to a grocery store where I shop quite often on my way to a now former friend's place. The cashier began the typical small talk.
"What are you up to today?" she asked.
Instead of my usual answer of "nothing", I decided to speak the truth because I was in a rare good mood.
"I'm off to see a friend"
Then she said something I could not believe some one would say to another human being.
"I didn't think you had any friends."
... I'm a little embarrassed to say that I cried a bit when I got in my car. People...

I am sorry that you had to come across such an ignorant person. Unfortunately, some people out there seriously need a filter button. I can tell you are a sensitive person and you took this to heart. It hurt your feelings and rightly so. You did nothing wrong sweetheart. Just understand that not everyone has the common sense to know better. Lamentably, you are going to come across many small minded people and the best thing to do is to avoid them altogether!

Thank you for your empathy. There is so much kindness and empathy in your words.
