Unfortunate Funerals

My mother''s funeral was today. At the wake last night, my four alcoholic brothers and sisters set up a temporary tavern in a van in the mortuary parking lot (we''re in our 40s and 50s) and proceeded to get completely sloshed, staggering about the parlor and disappearing into the dark for a half hour at a stretch to return even more so. Like-minded relatives joined them. I never saw anything like it before; it is not a family tradition, although alcoholism is. \ \ SO, I''d enjoy people sharing stories about funeral mishaps and other experiences related to the cringeworthy associated with mortality and its customs. Assuage my grief and outrage, please!\ \ (I said nothing, stayed polite, and just kept saying she''ll/he''ll be back soon when clueless relations and friends kept asking where so-and-so was. But really - This morning at the service the chapel smelled like a street festive outhouse, they were so nasty.)
