Just whose funeral do you go to anyway?
OK, so don't want to sound cold, but really do not like funerals & avoid if at all possible.
My feeling is if a friend or family member or neighbor, then yes I'll go.
My wife however disagrees. One of her girlfriends in her jazzercise class has 6-siblings & one died a few days ago. Now I've never met this woman once & don't know her name or anything about her. My wife is of course going & I rec'd a lecture from her before work this morning about me going as well this afternoon [UGH!].
My take is its her friend & if she wants to go, then fine. However, I'm expected to go also to "show my support for the family" [did I mention I've never met any of the family either other than wife's girlfriend & her husband].
So to keep the peace with my wife I'll go & stick it out. So am I being a jerk or insensitive? Would wife's girlfriend miss me if I wasn't there?
My wife's sister is also going as she met my wife's girlfriend a couople times. If I didn't go my name would be mud tonite as my wife's sister is spending the nite at our place so they can hang out.
