Betty, to Mona: I don’t know if I told you, but my mother died three months ago.

Mona: (says nothing. Nothing!)

Ladies Room attendant, to Betty and Mona: I’m sorry. There are other ladies waiting to use the mirror.

So what you hear is:

Betty: I don’t know if I told you, but my mother died three months ago.

Anyone in the world who is finally responding to Betty: I’m sorry.
