Today, I found out I wasn't invited to my neighbor's funeral, with whom I had been good friends with for a long time. When I asked her husband why, he said, "We have a small amount of money and can't afford for you to eat all of the refreshments." FML

Then you probably haven't been to too many funerals. Maybe the close family and friends are too upset to have an appetite (even though some people resort to comfort food when they are grieving), but most of the acquaintances, distant relatives, neighbors, coworkers etc. who attend the funeral are sad, but not that traumatized (because they weren't so close to the deceased) to not be able to eat. Besides, in many cultures it is customary to share a meal in the memory of the deceased after the funeral. It is an opportunity to talk about the deceased, share memories and let the family know they are not alone.


A similar situation happened to one of my friends who went to a funural against his sisters will (who thought she was the boss of everything) in the middle of the service she got up and started bitching him out in the middle of everyone when she found out he came to the funeral anyway. She got so bad, my friend was forced to leave getting shit looks from everyone there like he realy did something wrong. Thats not something anyone should have to go through

Maybe he just wants to drown his sorrows with food. seriously though, how rude of him to do that! Sorry OP!

I may sound really grave here, but you shouldn't dig yourself into a hole and tell him he needs to be coffin up more money than he can afford. Don't be judgmental tomb much, but be supportive and understanding.

Of corpse I could be dead wrong.
