Both your father and aunt are insensitive idiots. Sorry for your loss OP.
I think this news would be painful no matter the mode of communication. FaceBook is simply a very efficient way to inform everyone. Half a century ago, people would have found it rude that you phoned rather than visited to tell the news in person. Times change. It's not the end of the world.
#29. I kind of agree. Yes, a phone call would have been nice. But Op is not the only one who lost someone. The aunt and Op's father lost a parent. Op should be a little more considerate to the fact that they might not have wanted to call people at the moment, because they are also upset.
I'd say the normal thing to do when you have lost a family member is to call everyone.. and take comfort in that. Isn't that the meaning of family? Taking care of each other in a time like this, not just conveying news efficiently? I hate receiving news about my family via text messages or facebook.. it's so un-personal.
I think it should be like the way it was half a century ago. It's a lot more personal when someone tells you news such as this in person. It may be rough for the person telling you, but in my opinion that's the way it should be. Especially someone like your grandma or grandpa. I can understand if my mom would call saying some cousin I hardly knew just passed away, but for someone that close to me I would appreciate it a lot more hearing it first hand, rather than over the phone and worst of all, over the fucking Internet.
While I agree that Facebook is a bit more efficient, and that some of you do have a point about the fact that maybe this is the easiest way to communicate, I still think calling or telling someone in person is better. Not only would I NOT be prepared or expecting that kind of news from a Facebook post, if I was alone when I saw this, I would be devastated, plus have no one to turn to for comfort. Even over the phone, the caller can brace me for what they're going to tell me and offer a little comfort, as well as explain what exactly happened. Also, in my opinion, it's bad form for everyone on someone's Facebook, even those who had no idea who the person was, to find out about a death before the family is notified.
That is so insensitive. "Hey look everyone, Grandpa died! #YOLO" I'm sorry for your loss, OP. I truly am.
That's just so disrespectful. Always allow the family to know of the death before you plaster it all over Facebook. No one wants to hear grandpa died with a crappy status update! FYL, OP. Some people are just idiots.
Yep, this generation is poisoned by social media very sad but true.
May your grandpas soul find peace. Why do I have a feeling the this going to become a norm when my generation grows up, I hope I'm wrong.
And sorry for your loss Op. May your Grandfather rest in peace, and may God bless you and your family through this difficult time.
