Is this acceptable behaviour at a funeral?

I was on a two day course at the Trades Club in the Doncaster Frenchgate centre this week.

On the second day (Tues) we broke for a quick ciggy break at about 11.00am and the smoking shelter on the roof was crammed with young lads in monkey suits all getting hammered.

Found out they`d been to a funeral that morning.

Come lunchtime the shelter was again full of the young boozers now very much the worse for wear.

The afternoon coffee/ciggy break arrived (2.00pm ish) and guess what?

Yep still there, and by now they were so pissed they could barely stand up.

Is this acceptable conduct at a near and dear ones sendoff?

If they were Scots or Irish it is the only form of acceptable behaviour at a Funeral. Plus you have to have a punch up, not doing so is considered bad form.

The behaviour of the above mentioned booze hounds would have been more appropriate if they had continuously headbutted you until you flatlined.

In Russia very much so, some in fact would see failure to drink until collapse as a mark of disrespect to the deceased.

In Russia mass punch ups at weddings are not abnormal events.
If you put Russian weddings or Russian wedding fights into Google or Youtube you will get the picture.

I think it is completely unacceptable. Three hours + and most of them still able to stand, and still properly dressed I imagine, by your lack of comment to the contrary. By that time, at least a few of them should be lying in a pool of vomit and/or piss.

Actually Old Boy...it's considered etiquette in certain parts of Renfrewshire, as is taking possession of the deceased's property because you knew he would have wanted you to have it, despite the needs of his immediate family. A chap simply can't just turn up to a funeral and expect to leave unscathed and bereft of any household electrical items.

A few Irish guys at work went to a funeral last month. The funeral started on the Thursday morning and they didn't make it back into work until Tuesday...true story.

I was raised not far from Doncaster. The form was lay the body out on the dining room table for about 5 days for people to visit, curtains drawn.

Funeral, burial, and ham sandwiches in the Church Hall followed by a piss-up.

I'd rather my mates had a good lash rather than standing around bleating.


About what a right fatherless I was.

Barnby Dun Social Club did a roaring trade in post-committal knees-ups.

When I were a lad a funeral was where one of me uncles punched another uncle into the grave. Bonus points if the Aunties kicked off. Then we went down the pub for a nice ham tea.
