my beloved aunt went to the hospital Sunday.  Today we found out that she has cancer in her liver, lung and pancerus.  i tell him and he goes, " oh, she's dead."  so i say, really?  can you not have compassion for me. 

what does he say, " am i going to have to deal with you being sad for seven months?"

what the fuck?  am i not allowed to be sad?  Im so pissed at him right now.

what would you say to him?

i did just walk away because i dont even know what to say. i understand its cancer and she is going to die but am i not allowed to be sad?

Me personally? It wouldn't bother me. So I would probably be like, "yeah I know"

You should just ask him not to be such A cocksucker.

What a douche response from him. Why couldn't he say something along the lines of I am sorry. I know you are upset.  I wish I could take your pain away. I am here for you. Of course you are allowed to be upset. I am sorry he is such a callous asshat !

 At that moment I probably wouldn't say anything.  I can see myself walking away in tears.  I'm sorry he was insensitve.  Is that behavior out of the ordinary?

I wouldn't say shit.

my cast iron frying pan would be doing all the talking for me

I'm sorry to hear about your aunt-we just found out my uncle/godfather's cancer is back-he's fighting like hell-I hope your aunt makes it. Stay strong momma!

My husband would not say something so heartless, so I would probably be in shock if he said something like that.
