Woman puts super-chirpy birthday message in sympathy card for grieving colleague

When someone you know loses someone close to them , hitting that right note with what to say can be tricky.

This is especially true if the bereaved isn't a close friend or family member – for example, if they're a colleague or friend of a friend.

Still, there are some simple phrases you can stick to.

"Thinking of you," "sorry for your loss" and "with deepest sympathy" are a few classics.

"Hope you have a good birthday ", however, is not a good one.

Unfortunately, one eager beaver called Zoe put this in a grieving colleague's sympathy card which the recipient's son shared on Twitter .

Shelley Clarkson had not long lost her mother, Dianne, when her co-workers put together a card for her.

The rogue message reads: "To Shelley, hope you have a good birthday my love from Zoe."

Death and grief are painful, but many a Twitter user still saw the funny side.

One wrote: "I shouldn't laugh but this is hilarious."
