[LISTEN] 15 Rude things to never do at a funeral
223 days ago
When people are grieving there's a certain set of unwritten rules that we should always abide by; a certain etiquette to follow. Sometimes we witness some strange behaviour that's not considered appropriate in the setting.
One of those settings is a funeral. The #FreshOn947 team compiled a list of 15 Rude things to never do at a funeral - based on personal experience and the experiences of others.
Here are 15 Rude things to never do at a funeral:
- don't take selfies/funeral pictures
- don't make empty promises (i.e.: adopting the kids, paying for school fees, etc.)
- don't use a funeral as an opportunity to network
- don't ask for a selfie with a celebrity who is also attending
- don't tell someone how to grieve - people grieve in their own way
- don't make negative comments about the deceased
- don't post on social media that you're at a funeral #DeadThings
- don't make it about YOU
- don't every say that they are in a better place
- don't ask invasive questions
- don't slip out the back (don't just go to show face)
- don't be a distraction
- don't bring your own food
- try dress appropriately
- don't take pictures without permission
- don't be on your phone
- don't arrive late
We hope these will help ensure that we all show the appropriate respect to the grieving friends and family.
