No, I’ll not be home for it.

Your brother has died and you won't go and pay your respects ?

Self-pity central you min.

I've never understood the notion that you have to go a specific location at a specific time in order to "pay respects" (whatever the fuck that means). You clearly think it matters. Or you were just being a dick. Either way, I find it strange.

It's not strange when a poster behaves consistently, in this case acting deliberately to offend or be controversial. He may not have posted for a while but leopards don't change their overcoats. You may describe it as being a dick. I may consider it sick.

I'm not much of a one for funerals.

Each to their own of course, how you cope with death is and should be an individual thing.

Didn't have a funeral for my mother and I have no intention of having one for myself.

Indeed if I'm wrong and there is "another place" how could I face my Ma if I had a funeral and she didn't.

Somebody blabbing a heap of s'hite about someone they never met up at the crem doesn't do it for me.

I honestly didn't realise that was an option. What do they do with you? Sea? Landfill? I'm of the opinion that it's not my decision. If others would prefer to remember me via a funeral then that's up to them. Fit if yer kids want a big pairty to dance around yer corpse?

Not so much the fact he's not going to his Brother's funeral that's bothering.

It's the fact he's more concerned about a family member passing and how it would affect himself.

Might cost a couple of pounds, might make him depressed enough to want to drink beer, etc...

Self-centred and self-pitying.

He didn't rank his levels of concern in his posts. Just responded to a direct question.

Still disposed of as per normal.

In my Mothers case the crem at Crathes.

Which entailed me desperately trying and failing to follow the hearse ( a souped up job) out the North Deeside Road.

Every bloody red light..........

She would have liked that.

Travelling from Chicago to the North of Scotland is also expensive.

Folk can pay their respects in many ways.

I've always asked to be sent off Nordic style. Apparently it's frowned upon though.

Plus how much "concern" should we have for the dead? Their ship has sailed. It's gone from the harbour. It ain't coming back. Pragmatism is a good thing and as stated above, there are different approaches to situations. If I had a choice, not that we are capable of exercising any when we're pan breid, I wouldn't want a big fuss. Everyone will remember what a great guy I was and those memories are all they need.

Um, no.
I’m guessing you haven’t got a clue about the backstory so I’ll just assume that rather than you’re an insensitive wanker

He's a wanker. Literally. He admits to wanking off an Indian male cementer on one of his jolly oil trips. They were two men and two women in the bed at the time. Rocket the Nelliephant never forgets.

Insensitive too as his modus operandi is to deliberately offend. Always has been. I used to find that amusing but after a while, the sickness he displays gets too ugly to view.

Could easily be wrong of course but it sounds made up to me. Typical of the shite that's spouted on Hat. Bunch of overgrown kids trying to top each others' attempts to show how mental and edgy they are. Very very tiresome IMO and not what I want DT to become.

Agreed. Which is why he'll be banned very soon.
