I had gotten word that someone had died. I told one person, who I know knew them. I then emailed a mailing list I'm on, knowing that all but 2 people on this list either knew the person or his parents, informing the list of the news.
About 2 hours later, a knock at the door. Turns out that he hasn't actually died. He's on a vent, and brain dead, but not body-dead.
Arse feck arse feck arse. I need to stop trying to do the social graces thing, and just keep my fecking mouth shut.
