It was His Mother’s Funeral, but When His Father’s Lack of Emotion and Unsettling Comments Became Too Much, He Cussed Him Out in Front of Everyone

A teenager recently went online to ask if he’d gone too far by screaming obscenities at his father at his mother’s funeral. Here’s his story.

It was a tragic loss

“I attended my mother’s funeral with my father, who’s 57, along with other close relatives and family members,” the young man explained.

“Growing up, there were a lot of issues with my mother and my father, which led to me hating my dad.”

The young man explained that when his mother passed away, his father had emotionally shut down; he hadn’t shown any signs of pain, sadness, or remorse.

The young man thought that his dad’s stoic attitude might have been his way of protecting the young man’s little sister, who was staying with him at the time.

A couple of days after his mother’s death, the young man realized that he hadn’t heard anything from his father. He became worried about him and went over to his house to check if he was okay.

His father was there, but he didn’t make his son feel welcome at all.

Instead, the young man found himself greeted by a barrage of screaming. His father went on and on to him about how much the young man looked like his mother and how that meant he would die soon.

The young man became seriously concerned for his father’s mental health. But he also had a feeling that he might have been happy about his mother’s death.

Everyone was upset, except him

The day of the funeral was obviously highly emotional, but the young man said that his father was the only mourner showing no emotion whatsoever.

The final straw for the young man came when his father began talking about how he’d been “crying for days” on top of having to “deal with” his children.

The young man exploded at his father in front of everybody. He cussed him out, calling him a “lying piece of trash.”

He then yelled at his father in front of the gathered mourners, “Mom is probably happy to not be with you. And trust me, when you die, you’ll not be in the same place.”

He asked the internet

The young man accepted that he may have gone to far in publicly cussing his dad at a family funeral. He asked the internet for their thoughts.

The internet responded

The internet had a range of responses. “Grieving can explain his behavior (and yours), but it can’t excuse it,” said one. “He was wrong when you went to visit him, and you were wrong at the funeral. All in all, it’s a bad situation, and I hope it gets better for you both.”

“Grief is a strange creature, and it hits everyone differently,” said another. “There’s no right or wrong way to grieve. Your mom’s funeral was not about you or your dad, or how you feel about your dad. It was about your mom and people coming together to grieve her loss, and you made it about you. This was not the time or place to have that outburst.”
