If you went to high school with someone, you knew them but never hung out with them. If you passed them on the side walk you would say they hows life and keep going, what would you do if they passed away.

Tuesday a girl I went to high school with was killed in a car accident, and I didn't go to the viewing today because I cant really put myself through another funeral.

Was I terribly selfish for only sending a car to my high school telling them i was sorry, and talking to a few people about it?

I never went to anyone's funeral in high school, and I had a few people I knew who died.

Yeah. I feel guilty a bit about it but its not that people would ever look at me and say that I didnt go.

I found it hard to sympathize with kids who died in high school that I wasn't friends with, and I'm still the same way. It just weirded me out more than anything.

Fair enough, I think I get like weirded out but at the same time, death just gets me really jumpy. And this is the third car wreck in a week that has either killed someone I knew or put them in the hospital in woah fucked up condition.

great funeral etiquette quote:

your whole family should now die in a multi-muder-suicide. if that happened i would seriously laugh. no joke. id take video of myself laughing and put it on youtube. then id burn it to DVD, buy a portable DVD player, and bring it to your wake and play it in your dead face inside your casket.

I kind of hope (not so secretly) that everyone I went to high school would die.

the whole idea of funeral ettiquette is bullshit. going to a funeral is purely something you do for yourself. If you don't feel the need to grieve then don't go. it's not like the person who died will care. they're fucking dead.

Yeah but funerals are also for the family.
Ive been to about 8 in the past two years and a lot of times you are just there for other people too.

i'll only go to a funeral of someone i knew well and really loved. i know experience that having random people there makes the family uncomfortable. unfortunately, i had to attend one yesterday. and seeing people there that i knew didnt even like him bugged me.

funeral etiquette should include that its wrong for shitty girls to wear mini skirts and shirts that let their flubby stomachs hang out on a rainy and cold day and continuously talk shit about people outside

a funeral is different from calling hours/viewings...

usually not necessary/expected for acquaintances to go to the funeral services, unless they are close friends to another member of the family

but for calling hours, it's usually good to go, do a lap around the room and leave at the least. sending a card or flowers to the family would be nice as well (or instead).

^ I agree. It was a Memorial Service, they didnt have an open casket service or veiwing. I just tend to be really uncomfertable and I feel like that reflects overly to other people. Like get overly pale and shaky and stuff, I sent the card to them and everything. I dont know.
