In late 2015, my life took a turn. I became a widow, a title I despise by the way, mostly because of the reaction I receive – mostly from customer service personnel.
“Widow,” I respond.
This is usually followed by a stare from someone whose face goes from smiley to frown, faster than a Chevy at an Indy car race. It’s a look that says to me, this wasn’t covered in my customer service training.
So just how did I manage my first year of widowhood?
