Do you ever wonder why you get accused of getting the wrong end of the stick?

I ask because I was sitting in the staff room today and a colleague came over and said "I've got some good news for you."

Thinking that I might get a pay rise (for being generally wonderful) or that some famous actress had seen the error of her ways and was coming here to whisk me off my feet, I said "Oh yes?" To which she replied "My son's got a job" (we'd talked about his struggles a week or 2 ago).

Now I can see why I elicited a strong response with "That's nice, well done to him, but why's that good news for me?" but even I was shocked when she said to "f*** off."
