I am no longer on the streets good people, for those of you who do not know. I now work in communications (dispatcher). This week one of our ladies son commit suicide. It was very tragic, as you can imagine. Of course I believe that to be the case when anyone takes there life. Suicide is an permanent answer to a temporary problem.
At any rate today, when I got off work, I took a little nap, got up, dressed and went to the funeral service (Catholic). Even thought it rained, it was a nice little gathering of people. Not as many of her co-works as I would have imagined, but what do I know?
Anyway, I have some question for a funeral. Ready?
Question one: If you are at a funeral isn't it common sense to turn off your telephone? I don't want to hear your blame it on the alcohol, ring tone during services.
Question two: I don't have a problem with people who bring their kids to funeral service however....Doesn't it make sense to take a crying baby out of the room during the ceremony? Why would you keep a screaming child inside as a distraction?
Question three: Who the hell drinks coffee at a funeral? That's right....Coffee! As I was standing in the cathedral there was a lady next to me that just keep drink her seven up coffee, from it's container. What the hell? I seriously wanted to knock the thing out of her hand. Who does that?
Question four: Why did the priest end up playing the song, "I get around", during the service. At first I thought it was another cell phone going off, but no, it was coming from the pulpit. So then I thought it was a musical tribute, when it continued to play for a good two minutes. Then the priest apologizes and says he was looking for a song. Seriously. Can you believe that?
Question five: Why is it that the when it was all said and done they could not get the front doors open and the line backed up as they were trying to get the casket out? It was both said and comical at the same time.
Question six: Why was the wife crying? I was told that the reason he killed his self was because he had lost his job and his wife was cheating on him and asking for a divorce. So why was she even there and better yet...Why was she outside yell for him not to leave her? You were leaving him, damn it!
Anyway, that's about the size of it.
