Today, my mom had to go to one of her relatives’ funeral. She came to borrow a black scarf from me, but the only one I own has grey skulls printed on it. Yes, she took it anyway. FML

Sounds like your mother doesn't know the definition of appropriate attire.

This was posted from Tunisia, so it's likely OP's mom needed the scarf to wear as a hijab. Had she gone without one, she would have been considered to be wearing inappropriate attire anyway. Could she have worn a different color than black? Maybe, but that may have been equally frowned upon. It seems like a losing situation all the way around for OP's mom.

Or she could just buy some cheap scarf.

Solid catch to the guy who first replied. Didn't see it was from Tunisia. I was referring to the skulls at a funeral though, not the color.

I really don't see your problem.

She is most likely embarrassed by her mother wearing her own inappropriate scarf to a funeral.

No fucks were given.

Not your fault she took it but hey, at least it moribily matchs the theme O.o

What matters is that she will be there to pay her respect.

"Oh, my god, do you see what Hellen is wearing?!" "No, but I'm sort of preoccupied with, you know, greiving the immense loss of somebody I loved." "But SKULLS!"

this make me laugh because I have a great great aunt Hellen that wear clothes like that

I never meet her just pictures but she has a hard life

Despite this amazingly fascinating story of eccentric emo goth Great Aunt Hellen, I feel compelled to point out the handy little feature known as private messages.

I forgot fml had massages

Yeah, but they don't have happy endings, so who cares?

Divorce? You must have an… interesting relationship with your parents.

Would a navy scarf not have sufficed?

she could've just tried it upside-down .. ? maybe that might've worked because some are just printed on one side.

A skull upside down is still a skull. Only upside down. #themoreyouknow

ohh I meant inside-out !! sorry sorry ..

I guess she is skull-fucking the norms of funeral attire
