Cashier to me:
“How are you doing this evening?”
Me: “Good, and you?”
Cashier: “Amazing! My husband finally left me. I’ve been waiting fifteen years. Finally, at 62, he’s gone. I wake up happy every day now.”
Lady behind me: “You too huh? Mine asked me for a divorce and I screamed YES! I was hoping he’d leave for years. So much better being single at 56.
Cashier: “I’ve beat cancer twice, and now with my husband gone, I can really start enjoying life and not having to put up with him. Life is amazing!”
Lady behind me to me: “Yes, life is much better in the later years being single.
How old are you? Are you married? Happily?”
Such an odd conversation. 😳
