    Tried To Sell His 'Album' At A Funeral

    From Redditor u/Ser_Bron:

    My cousin's girlfriend's son decided he wanted to play guitar and sing a song at my dad's funeral. No one else was playing music or singing. He gets up halfway through the funeral and starts singing. He's horrible.

    At the end of his song, he actually plugged his "new CD" that he just so happened to have a bunch of copies of in his car.

    A Shared Celebration

    From Redditor u/upromisedbstuff:

    My husband’s family refused to attend our very small wedding unless they could bring three times the number of people we invited AND have it be a combination wedding/morbid memorial service for someone who died seven years before who we were not close to. Their compromise was the hordes of extra guests would attend the reception “but not eat the food.”

    They still don’t talk to us because we didn’t make our wedding a memorial service.

    (I still wonder what my side of the family would have made of that if we had.)

    Sister Act

    From Redditor u/wow_pretty_colors:

    My mom has custody of my sister's daughters because my sister abandoned them. My sister doesn't ask about them. Doesn't try to visit them. Doesn't call them.

    Surprisingly, my mom got a call from my sister on the oldest daughter's fifth birthday. Unfortunately, it wasn't to wish happy birthday... it was to announce she had stage four duodenum cancer. Which was upsetting, obviously.

    Only my sister didn't act sick. She acted excited about all the concern. She never went to the doctors. And people started to catch on.

    About a year later, after people started calling her out on her inconsistencies, she put on her Facebook that she had been feeling sick all week. She puked twice that morning and went to the hospital. And the doctor declared her cancer to be gone. She... puked up... her cancer...

    Of course some [people] commented on her status congratulating her for being cancer-free. My comment was deleted, though. Something to the effect of, "Really? You puked up cancer? Why the hell would you take attention away from your daughter's birthday with this sh*t?"

    The Woman In White

    From Redditor u/mrmdc:

    My sister-in-law's cousin is hot. Everyone agrees. There's no denying it. When she walks into a room, all eyes turn to her. She's always got guys fawning all over her. She has plenty of attention, deserved or not, at all f*cking times.

    When my brother got married, this girl, my sister-in-law's cousin, decided to wear a huge, frilly white dress with a hat/veil. She kept barging into places moments before my sister-in-law, excusing herself for causing confusion.
