FML - The follow-up
sophietr8 Say more :
In order to explain more, my aunt had promised to lend her the shirt, so she was a little angry that my uncle used that one in the open casket. It was just a momentary thing, but yeah, it was pretty bitchy. I already had a long conversation with her about it.

Everyone grieves differently. I have known a few people to go into a self centered state of mind because the death hasn't quite sunk in yet. If that is the case here, that girl will be very embarrassed about her actions when reality hits.

Horrible and selfish the girl's viewpoint may be, I think she has a point (sort of). It's not as if dead people need clothes. Well I suppose they do in an open casket funeral.. Still, I can see where she's coming from, but she should have worded it better and not acted like a spoiled brat.

i have to agree with #2 sure his sister is being selfish and inconsiderate but OPs life isnt fucked. OP is experiencing more of an inconvenience that his sister is self-centered

Or the Aunt was stylish and young. Now, don't get me wrong, the majority of people's Aunts are much older than them, but I will be 35 when my niece is 15, and I don't necessarily think that's old. On a side note, Retro is coming back in style though :/

86: I'm sensing hostility from you. My comment was in no way meant to be taken in a sense of "aunts die young". I was implying that it's possible that OP's aunt was young and therefore added my age comparison to my niece. I could've easily said 'I'll be 80 when my niece is 65' but chose my younger years to say 35 isn't old (and I'm fully aware OP didn't say a single thing about her aunts age). In all due respect, I'm assuming OP's sister is incredibly young for the lack of empathy, maturity or respect for her Aunt. I hope we all live happy, long, fulfilled lives, but sometimes horrible things happen and people close to us die before their "time".

Some forms of grieving that I have experienced, witnessed, or heard of involve: regret, anger, sadness, denial, etc. But selfishness and greed? Well those are a definite first.

Her logic is technically correct, but she definitely lacks respect/morality. *That's* the real problem, not her logic.

23. Respecting the dead (and feelings of their relatives) is moral choice/obligation which is a bit related to religion. Clothes will rot away, so technically sister is correct that they're wasted. However, since she doesn't care about her dead aunt, that's entirely different matter, which is not related to logic.

#13, obviously you didn't realise that Doc's comment's intention was to make puns, hence the "What, too soon?" The comment was meant to be taken lightly and not be questioned for its logic. *mortified* *dead* *fatal*

What does it have to do with morality, then? You act like it's a given but don't explain it. I mean, it's not like she's hurting the aunt. Oh, and #35, was that a typo or a pun...?

The answer to your question is that you need to get the fuck off the Internet if you can't learn to take jokes. It wasn't about the morality, it was about the mortality and the puns.

It's not really a big deal as long as the OP was the only one who heard it. Given that he posted this on FML, it probably didn't bother him *that* much. As for the aunt... well, it's not like she cares anyway at this point.

Oh I didn't even know you say cunt on here! I thought my comment would get blocked! Nice!

Wait, so you're saying you thought people weren't allowed to say "cunt" on FML, so you... tried to obscure the word before posting it anyway? Self-preservation really isn't one of your strong points, is it?

Slip the mortician a fifty (or the Dutch equivalent of a entry-level prostitute) and he'll be happy to bury a naked stiff and give your sister some cute duds infused with the stench of death.

#39, what a beautiful thought! I think I'll get "The World Needs More Ass" T-shirts and coffee cups printed up. It could be the next "Life is Good" franchise, but in this case, stick-figure drawing won't do, if you know what I mean ;) ;)
