By RIP - Finland - Espoo
Today, I had to call the cops to break up a fistfight at my mother's funeral. It turns out my two brothers care more about having a pissing match over their favorite football teams than they do honoring our mother's memory. FML

12 - I don't think it gets easier.

OP - The loss of a loved one, especially a mom, makes people behave in a way that is almost all too expected. The day my mom died my oldest sister went out and got wasted, which is a typical way for her to self medicate/"cope." Nothing and everything changes. I'm sure they'll see the error of their ways eventually. Hugs and love, OP.

33 - Yes, because I'm sure a fight perked things up wonderfully and cheered everyone (end sarcasm). My family doesn't do "sad" funerals either, but I don't care who you are, a fight is never appropriate at a funeral unless the one being remembered was an MMA fighter or something.

This is by far the most immature, stupid, inane, and most of all disrespectful thing I've ever heard or read. If I were there not just the cops but an ambulance and paramedic would be called to take the 2 brother to the hospital after I was done teaching them.

39 We don't do sad funerals either. We try to celebrate their life. I'm very sorry for your loss OP. I hope that you have many memories to help get you through the hardest of times.

1, the immaturity shown between these brothers, during their own mother's funeral, is nearly too hard to believe! There is a time and a place for every discussion. Years from now, the brothers will be drinking their sorrows away due to the fact that they were complete assholes and showed no respect at their mother's funeral. At least, that's what I suspect and it doesn't seem far fetched.

The kids generally don't get the money if the dad is still alive, so hopefully none of them will be getting it yet.
The brothers are disgustingly rude and I'm sorry but you don't call the cops on your siblings ._. it's called "Hey uncle, uncle, nephew, nephew and myself, lets all break it up ourselves"


Family doesn't mean spit when there's fisticuffs involved. If my brother came home drunk out of his mind and starts shouting nonsense and starts punching a car, there's gonna be blue lights flashing soon.

I don't know... Some people are assholes. Hitting ydi for some stupid fml is one thing, but on one as painful as this? Obviously the people hitting that button are incapable of understanding the emotional turmoil a person has to go through sooner or later in life. A real human wouldn't even joke about that.
