  • At some point, it is up to every person to behave. There are times to have a drink and there are times to act like a grown-up. A funeral is a grown-up occasion.

  • It's very tacky. I would ask that person to leave.

  • I think that is very rude and disrespectful. I don't know all the details, but what if he was drinking to cope? Death is a ver sad thing, and everyone handles it differently.

  • I think that is ignorant and disrespectful!!! He shouldn't even be allowed at the funeral. I don't care if he's "grieving" or not. He can put down the bottle for that one day.

  • Maybe rude, but some people deal with the loss of a friend/relative by getting drunk, so I wouldn't judge. My SIL got wasted at her husband's funeral.

  • My first reaction is extreme sadness... that the drunk person must be in such a state of depression, with out someone to turn to, that they can not function and feel they must get drunk.

    If this is your friend... I suppose you should try to help him out... be there for him.  He is obviously in alot of pain.

    However, if he IS a drunk... then why would you be surprised?

  • I totally agree w/ you. Cant he wait till after the funeral (&the wake?!) No one wants to see that. Besides, alcohol & funerals dont mix, with alcohol being a DEPRESSANT and all! What a turd! I hope you can talk him out of it! (*Sorry for your loss)

  • It's trashy, but maybe the only way he knows how to deal.
