This is a question Saying the Unsayable

Freddie Woo tugged our coat and asked: Have you ever had to tell someone they had BO? Had to break dreadful news to somebody? Tell us how you broke through the cringe barrier

Beer soaked accidental trauma
I've been a loyal wingman to Woody ever since the days of Sixth Form. At the time of this tale, Woody had been working as a nurse in A&E and as such the nights out became ever more beer soaked and debauched, but on this fateful evening, in the depths of some dingy nightclub he needed absolutely no help whatsoever, for a lass accosted him at the bar. We were all a bit the worse for wear at this point, she was clearly just as hammered as we were.

“I know you from somewhere don’t I?” she slurred.
“You do look familiar, but I can’t place the face. Fancy a beer?”

And with that they spent the next hour getting reacquainted, drinking and flirting, so the rest of us left them to their own devices for a while. When we found them again, they were enthusiastically snogging on a grubby, booze stained sofa, in a manner that suggested that the pair of them would be doing the no pants dance before the night was out.

Sure enough, she tagged along to Woody’s place and disappeared into his room with him as I made myself comfortable on the spare room sofa and drifted off in a miasma of beer addled sleep, trying to ignore the sound of enthusiastic shagging coming from the room next door.

I was abruptly awakened at seven-ish in the morning by the sound of rapid footsteps, female sobbing and the front door closing. What the fuck was that all about?

Shaken from my hangover and on the pretext of having to visit the bathroom, I popped my head around the door of the lounge to find out what had happened and sure enough, there sat a traumatised Woody in his jeans looking as if his entire world had just caved in.

“You alright mate? What the fuck just happened?” I asked

“I thought she looked familiar...” he replied, as he scratched his head and stared at the carpet.

“Come on, spill the beans, who was it?”

“Well, last year we had bloke ambulanced in who’d been in an RTA” he said

“Yeah...” I replied

“Well, he didn't make it. I was on duty that night”.

“Oh shit. Tell me that wasn't his sister?” I asked.

“No, it’s worse. That was his girlfriend. And I was the one who broke her the bad news that night. I didn't place the face until ten minutes ago.”

Discombobulated is what I am

Generally speaking, bad news breaking is, whenever possible, carried out by two people.
We've got one particularly autistic consultant who won't talk to relatives full stop without someone else there.

Well...
1) I had a girlfriend at the time...and given that Woody lived thirty miles away from my home, I needed somewhere to crash.
2) Pass, you'd have to ask Woody.
3) Pass, you'd have to ask her.
