I truly enjoy this forum, but character assassination because someone disagrees with you is silly.

The few times I've met Mr. Spooney it has certainly NEVER been about him. He'd be a good man to have on your side.

My opinion after fishing together a few times.

I wasn't aware that a man's character and integrity hinges on whether or not he likes to stop at funeral processions. It doesn't matter if he actually stops (which he clearly stated that he does) but whether he wants to stop. Apparently, if you live on an island with only 1 main road, it should not make any difference at all if 2 or 3 times a day you must stop driving (even if you have something important to do) and wait in the middle of the road hoping nobody plows into you from behind. I guess there is no room for any irritation, however slight that irritation may be, because the only person that matters in the world is the 1 person who has died. Perhaps, just perhaps, the person who stops out of respect but wishes he didn't have to is not really a butthole, but just a person who thinks the particular custom is not necessarily in the best interests of everybody involved. Especially when it leads to the living being put into danger because out of state visitors to our wonderful beaches don't realize that someone in front of them is going to slam on the brakes in the middle of the road, divided highway or not, and wait for the funeral procession to pass.

Now, to be clear yet one more time...I stop. In fact, I can probably say that I have as much funeral experience than most people on this forum. I have seen way too many close calls because I am usually the lead car. It is scary. Give respect, yep, sure do. Do I always love doing it? Nope, sometimes I am in a hurry. Surprised that a preacher would sometimes get irritated? Hate to break it to you but I am a real person and I don't walk on clouds and just pray all day. I actually have real feelings too. That's not a bad thing. It just is what it is.

Michelle, holding a grudge is like drinking poison and hoping someone else will die. It will only kill you. I pray God's richest blessings upon you and Dalton.

And for those who actually read what I wrote, my point was that "not stopping" does not necessarily mean the driver is a @&@$$&$. Could be many reasons other than that.

Don't label people for following the law and not following a local custom. Numerous times I have seen people almost wreck because some driver slams on the brakes to show "respect." Again, it isn't bad to pull over, but it isn't a crime to drive on, either.




i dont pull over either. I am working 6am-11pm, and my most important thing on my mind is doing my absolute best for my customers and meeting my deadlines/commitments- so I don't care really.

I might not do right what I'm suppose to do all the time but I will do that and I will answer yes ma'am and no sir. Everyone is always in a hurry and only thinks of themselves, pulling over means more to the family than you might think and it's only 3 min out of your busy day, Lord know I have lost many family members and friends VERY close to me and that 3 min if a stranger pulling over makes all the difference in the world to the family.
100%, right on

Well, like I said. I stop. Always have always will. But, I will say this. I have specifically requested that there not be a procession for my funeral. I look at it this way, my life and most certainly my death does not require a lot of attention from those that know me much less those that don't. My ego allows me to go by completely unnoticed.

Well,
It can be a pain in the Ass if you are in a hurry as most of us are.

To me, It is a show of respect for someone I never knew. The one in the Hearse could of been a Hero, average Joe, or a pile of Shit. The last trip before becoming worm dirt. Heaven or Hell, we will not know that until the day we take our last breath. Can only hope there is an afterlife, being its faith based.
I pull over or creep along while saying a silent prayer for the unknown Soul.
