Funeral Processions = Stupid. Just Stupid.
I hate’em. They’re just stupid. Sorry to offend anyone. But then again, what kind of moron would be offended because I think causing people to be late for appointments and obligations, because there’s one hundred cars going at a snail’s pace is…STUPID?
It is, what it is. Seems to me, there are far better ways to honor a deceased loved one than with a friggin’ TRAFFIC JAM.
And the other drivers just pull over? WHY? At least the funeral procession should be contained to one lane! Am I making sense here?
I asked a policeman friend of mine once if there were any laws regarding this and he said, ” No. You have the legal right to be an A-Hole and drive fast and honk til you’re through the pack”.
So that’s exactly what I am going to do from now on. In fact, I might just put a giant rubber skate stopper on the front of my car. Or how bout this?
I’ve had it with all you dead people demanding “respect”!! Fact is…I didn’t know you. Soooo, I didn’t actually respect you when you were alive. I had no reason to, right? So why would I start now? And why the hell would I drive 3 mph to show you that?
Ok, I’m HALF kidding with that previous paragraph. HALF.
I actually got yelled at by a traffic cop for going around a funeral procession once, on Mockingbird. But again, there’s no laws against it. So he was in the wrong.
What do you think about this? Do you feel causing a traffic jam to be an appropriate way to honor someone?
This was fresh on my mind today after seeing Joe Pa’s funeral procession on ESPN.
