  • Nope, not yet.
  • Yes, laughing hysterically at a funeral because someone tripped over the coffin and almost sent the corpse flying up into the air
  • The only time I will do that will be at my own funeral... I will wish I hadn't died - well.. of course assuming that I still have some form of consciousness, whether it be as a soul/spirit/ghost/banshee or whatever. If I am incapable of wishing anything, then ignore this comment
  • i got the giggles. terrible, terrible timing.....
  • I did, I stopped my hubby from doing something. At my 18 year old step-son's funeral, my hubby (his dad) was very curious about a pad that had been placed on top of the pillow and under his son's head. It was the type of pad you would see on a hospital bed, to protect the mattress from fluids soaking into it. He had been killed in a tragic car crash, but his mother wanted the casket open... I talked my hubby out of lifting his son's head to see why the pad was there, because I had a feeling that I knew why, and I didn't want his father to see that. I work in the E.R. at our hospital, so I am used to seeing things like that, but my hubby wouldn't have been able to handle it. But now, three years later, it still bothers him. He still wishes he had looked to see what had happened. His son's death was ruled a massive head injury, the van he was in rolled over 12 times, and he was ejected through the passenger window, he was unbelted in the back seat. I often think now, that maybe I should not have prevented him from looking, even though it would have upset him at the time, at least he would not be wondering all this time about it. Hard call to make, and it's too late now. And considering his state of mind, as we had just buried my son 5 weeks earlier and were both still devastated and emotional, I felt it would add to his pain. Part of me thinks I did the right thing, but part feels bad for his worry about it.
  • i asked for a stiff one when i got to the 'wake haha!!
  • Not yet. So far, so good.
  • In common with a lot of other people I got a fit of the giggles. I didn't start it, but it's infectious and pretty soon there was about half a dozen of us giggling. The worst thing was that we were the honour guard and all in uniform.
  • Yes, but in my defense, I didn't really have a good grasp of funeral protocol at the time. I was only 6. My great-grandmother had passed away, and was having the wake and memorial service in her own living room. At some point, for some reason, I decided to do an impromptu air-guitar rock concert with my little sister to entertain everyone who was there. We were standing on the kneeler in front of the casket rocking out, until my parents saw what was going on and gently escorted us out of the room.
  • there were no signs posted!
  • Yes a body. I really don't like looking at dead people.
  • Not something I wish I hadn't done..I have done things that I probably shouldnt have done..but I did them because I wanted to..so..no regrets :)
  • At my fathers funeral I cursed out my half-brothers wife because she made a very hateful comment towards my mother in front of a lot of people. She never liked my mother because my mother is asian, my fathers side of the family has always been really racist. I should have been the better person and kept my mouth shut because that really was not the right time, or place to confront someone.
  • no, unless you call uncontrolable crying something bad. I hate when people die.
  • After doing somewhere between 800 and 1000, I can't rmember any major blunders. I did forget my dress shoes once and, on another ocassion, I was a little late because I got lost - but I've gotten by OK.
  • I forgot to turn my cell phone off :(
  • Hmmm, yes, I think I have. I insisted my partner and I leave the after funeral meal for our good friend Karl earlier this year. I insisted we leave because I felt so uncomfortable being around his uncle after he had drunkenly insulted our wedding plans. He angrily told us our civil union plans were an EGO wedding - edge god out. He is a very highly strung christian, and well known for making scenes like this. His wife and children were very upset, and kept apologizing to us. They told us to stay, and be with the family, but I felt like we didn't belong after that. So I made Arthur take me home. I regret this now, because I think it put the focus on this incident rather than on Karl, and I think we should have stayed there to support our good friend, his sister.
  • Do you know that as J.W's , we have a hope for those who died...They will have A RESURRECTION... And we will see them again... (Acts 24:15) And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. (1 Corinthians 15:54, 55) But when this which is corruptible puts on incorruption and this which is mortal puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will take place:
