Funerals are never easy, but this Reddit user attended the world’s most uncomfortable, strange funeral, and it was his grandfather’s! Imagine wanting to peacefully say goodbye to your beloved grandfather when all of a sudden, his second family shows up.
A funeral has to be the most inopportune time to find out about a hidden family. We bet the whole ceremony was a string of embarrassing moments for everyone involved.
The Black Sheep of the Family
When an embarrassing story gets old, and so it gets told so many times that it becomes some type of a folktale in the family, is it still a shameful story? Or maybe a source of pride?
We are sure that for this said ancestor, the moment was extremely mortifying. Getting caught stealing is never fun, and being banned from an entire country? Well, the only thing more shameful than that is... we actually can't think of one.
We have all heard of the term "mother-naked" but we have never thought we'd have to think about that saying, well... literally.
This poor soul has had the misfortune of learning the thing that is passed down in his family isn't a tasty recipe or a useful skill, but rather the tendency to enjoy being in the nude around others. This is the type of embracement that never goes away.
No More Notes
There’s nothing more passive-aggressive than leaving a note about something that bothers you. Oh, wait, yes, there is! Writing it in a red marker. This guy had to deal with the longstanding humiliation of having his roommate leave passive-aggressive notes with his name signed on them!
Not only that, this poor guy had to walk around his building like a creep and remove all of the embarrassing notes, which makes this even more shameful.
A Cringy Book
Nothing gets worse than reading a book your grandfather wrote about your grandma. A long horrifying text detailing all of your family's dirty laundry. Pages upon pages of personal, cringy, family stories, that anyone can now go to the bookstore and read.
This book has probably managed to mortify many members of the family across different generations. We would like to hope the grandpa himself is ashamed of publishing the book but for some reason, we have a hunch he isn't.
