Hoggirl Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 I attended a funeral this morning for an elderly gentleman in our church, and, quite honestly, I was appalled at what some of the people were wearing. One girl had on shorts and Birkenstocks. She has dresses - I have seen her in them in church. One lady had on a jacket that had rhinestones on it. Several men had on golf shirts and jeans. Then funeral was at 10:30 this morning. It's not particularly hot, and there was no graveside service. All the honorary pallbearers did have on jackets if not suits. But it wasn't an age thing such that the older folks were dressed more appropriately than the younger folks who were there. Maybe I am just overly critical, but I don't think it is that hard to spruce up a little bit for a funeral. Am I just out of touch? I know society has become a lot more casual, but to me there are just certain times when one has to dress a certain way. Ducking, in case tomatoes are coming my way.
