I like to pull over as a sign of respect when I can, sometimes you just have to get out of the way.

My cousin was the first soldier from chatanooga to die in Iraq, and you would of swore his funeral was a celebrities. People in Tennessee are super respectful of dead soldiers.

Wow...

Your views don't make you come off anything like arrogant, they're making you come across as a complete retard.

Why does the dead deserve more respect then the living?
My grandfather was a WWII veteran and died last summer. I don't believe any of those were noticable above any other funeral I have attended.

I'm a retard for not caring about a complete and total stranger who I never even knew in the first place? I'm sorry but with all the deaths and births that happen across the world on a daily basis I only care about those I personally know.

If I'm wrong I'll try to reanimate as a zombie and say differently. In all honesty I don't remember when was the last time I've even seen a funeral procession. Death is a personal thing, I think of it differently. I choose to remember the interactions I shared with someone to honor their memory. The body is only a vesicle for the spirit, at the time of death the spirit moves on. The body goes away, the memories and experiences remain.

Yes, that is one of the many reasons you are a complete and total waste of oxygen.

I'll make a concession to this whole discussion. Instead of pulling over how bout I tip my hat and/or say a nice prayer for the dead.

Really sad Andy. You are no longer a kid living at home. You are now an adult who doesn't have a fucking clue while living at home.

As an adult I'm entitled to my opinion. By not stopping I'm breaking no laws. Its a personal choice. This is just one of those personal religious/respect issues that I don't believe in (ie: wearing hats in religion) each has its own thoughts and practices. It's either hats/head cover for all or none.

As an adult, you should act like an adult. I don't care if you stop or not. I don't pull over either if I'm not obstructing the flow of the procession. That's not the statement that is offensive. It's your cold callous fuk-em attitude about those that are greiving and honoring the loss of someone they love. It's your heartless attitude about someone who has just died. It's not respectful and it's not funny.

His attitude/actions surprises you? From what I've seen from Andy this is just par for the course.

No. It just disappoints me that this thread confirms he is on par with Steveo & knows no limits.

Or respect for his parents, his friends, or himself. What is funny is he thinks nothing is wrong with his attitude, or the fact he still buys projects while living at home, or breaks shit when he borrows it and never replaces it, or he moves trash cans to cover/hide damage caused by him, or when take advantage of a friends generosity and destroy his garage, ect
