Today, I received a Snapchat of a horse-drawn carriage version of a hearse. I replied, "That's so extra!" because I thought it was finals week at her school. Turns out, she's at her uncle's funeral. He was an officer in the Air Force and there's going to be a 21-gun salute in his honor. FML

You probably should've clarified to make sure it was just a joke, but if you didn't know he uncle you couldn't have known. I'd probably make the same mistake, sorry OP.

Even I worked that one out.

I know what you mean. Some tween told me to "get shook." I had to ask my teenage sister. She told me that the person was basically telling to get "triggered" a.k.a. angry or upset.

That's so extra has been around for a long time. However, so have caissons. When I was in the navy, I was was a casket bearer and we use them for military funerals at Arlington.

Sorry, but I find snapping a funeral to be trashy. Just lost my dad last month (he was a war veteran too), and if anyone had been doing something like that, I would have had a problem with them. I feel for you, OP. Sounds like she posted it only to make people feel bad for her.

Condolences on your loss.

I also would not be snapping photos of a hearse like that, much less Snapchatting them without any context. Unless OP's friend told him, how was he to know she was going to her uncle's funeral?

Sounds like she had never seen a horse drawn hearse before.
