Honesty is sometimes not the best policy. but I didn't see how having a tacky dress contributed to her death. Sound like quality folks you got there.
Well what if her dress was tacky..? Some people are just brutally honest. Its not like we have control of how people will act. We can only shun them or blast them out. OPs parents were very wrong for saying it, she let her thoughts become a reality. Tell me you haven't said something without thinking it came off as rude/mean/callous.
Well obviously. But everyone has their own opinion. Sometimes shit just gets blurted out. I understand it wasn't nice in anyway but its just a way of life. To me it seems that the parents were either super judgemental or they could have had some type of conflicts going on between in-laws. It happens. Think of it as karma. What goes around comes back around. So they made that joke, their punishment was to be kicked out after starting a fight. In the end they still lost. And will forever be remembered as those assholes from OPs husbands moms funeral. And the entire FML community.
Lots people can't differentiate the difference between telling the truth and being a dick/also when and where it isn't appropriate. The 2 often go hand in hand. Sorry for what happened OP hopefully they learned something from it, but this far along in their lives I doubt it.
Actually yes there are good funerals. When someone's lived a full and happy life you celebrate it. We're all gonna end up dead, I've always been taught to celebrate someone's life if they die. Sure young people dying is different and harder to cope with. But like when my grandpa died he said to make sure his funeral was a party. "After you drop me 6 ft under get drunk and remember the good times." Maybe a bit of a soap box rant. TL;DR funerals can be fun it's all about how you look at it.
