That’s why we’re here! We’ve put together the most shocking, inappropriate, and downright awkward funeral stories that people have shared on the internet. Get your popcorn and your second-hand embarrassment ready, folks, because these stories are wild.
The Perfect Entrance
This storyteller witnessed an absolutely ridiculous performance at a family funeral. One of their family members arrived late to the funeral in a ridiculous outfit. The woman showed up at the gravesite wearing a huge hat, sunglasses, and a low-cut evening gown. Needless to say, the evening gown was inappropriate for the occasion.
The woman proceeded to make a huge scene about how sad she was about the family member’s passing. Our storyteller wasn’t fooled by her fake tears, though. They know this woman is a narcissist and aimed to make the funeral all about her instead of the beloved person who passed away. Talk about unnecessary theatrics!
