Top 10 Things You Should Never Do at a Funeral

Funerals are very serious things. Don't go to one and do any of these things. (Also, if you're actually going to one soon, you might want to save this for later.)
The Top Ten
1 Fart

I mean...it's not a great idea to fart in public in the first place, but funerals are really bad places to cut the cheese.

2 Fall asleep

(Not that I am, this, but,) what if you are narcoleptic?

A little disrespectful

I think this is worse than farting because it’s usually easier to avoid and harder to ignore.

what if it's late?

3 Read this list

It might make you laugh, and laughs are very out of place

4 Read a book

Again, this is deemed as disrespectful by most people.

Yeah, this a sign of boredom and not caring.

5 Go on Twitter

Really, social media is a headache anyways, and you can check out whatever it is later.

6 Burp

Same idea as farting. It's just bad manners anyway.

7 Make jokes

If you're like me and have a clearly vivid sense of humor, it's not exactly a great idea to exert it at a funeral.

“I hate how funerals are at 9 am, I’m not really much of a mourning person”.
But in all seriousness, funerals are not really a place to tell jokes.

8 Blast a very loud heavy metal song

my dad wanted Thunderstruck by AC/DC played at his funeral; it was granted and played. The mourners smiled and headbanged along, all the time saying. "Typical Dave" It it is what the deceased requests, then anything should be played in respect.

But what if it was what the deceased wanted played at their funeral?

But what if I want a metal song to be played at my funeral?

This is just plain wrong, given the context.

9 Eat a snack

Not as bad as burping or cutting some cheese, but still, funerals are supposed to be pretty silent. If you have hypoglycemia, I suppose it's okay, but still...

as long as your quiet.

10 Laugh

I remember reading a comment from someone on YouTube. The person posting this comment (let's call him "Jake") said that he visited his grandfather's funeral when he was younger, and they did the "Hail Mary" prayer. Jake did not understand why they were repeating the prayer. He found it funny, along with his cousin, and they were trying to hold back their laughter. - SoongeBill

(I just had to submit the visual.) At any rate, this can come off as a "Good riddance," "Glad you're dead." or other rather sadistic thoughts, potentially.

Unless it's the funeral of a serial killer, pedophile, rapist, or gang member.

Only sadists do this

The Contenders
11 Stream Netflix on your phone

You really shouldn't have your phone with you if this is what you use it for.

12 Watch YouTube

Unless it's about dealing with loss

Same idea as Netflix

13 Get the Coronavirus
14 Sit on the dead person

Well, I can't say I disagree, but if they're in a coffin, how would you even hope to accomplish this?

how would you do that

15 Speculate on who will be next

Possibly the worst thing to do at a funeral. I might want this to happen at mine!

I’m surprised neither I or anyone else thought of this.

16 Get drunk

I imagine a lot of people actually might do this but it could lead to some serious problems.

17 Cry on the body
18 Cough

Mostly on the corpse

19 Sneeze

Sometimes you can't help it, though.

20 Play video games

oh I would do this. I get bored easily, so I would probably bring my system along

21 Arrive late

One thing that most shows that you didn't care about them enough.

22 Start a fight

The randomness of the picture made me snicker

23 Play leap frog
24 Condemn someone
25 Blame someone
