    Last night I went out to meet some friends, and there was this dude who was complaining about how expensive tickets are to the east coast. It turns out that unfortunately he would need to fly out on 1-2 days notice for his grandmother in-laws funeral soon. And as he explains his wife was very close to her grandma, so she really wants to go to her funeral.

    This is absolutely mind boggling for me, because first of all, we are talking about 1 day and possibily $1000. But naturally I wonder why he doesn’t want to fly out now to say proper the goodbye. The answer I got was that he doesn’t have the vacation, and that his grandma may have the entire month to live. It blows my mind completely. You can’t take the time to say a proper goodbye when that person is alive, but yet you care about someone so much that you HAVE to attend their funeral, AFTER that person has passed away? Isn’t it backward?

    Apperantly it is his religious practice that you want to show God the you respect the person after they passed away, and that according to him, is more important than showing ther person that you care when he is alive. I am not in any position to question any religious believe. People I am close friends with like Tracy and Ronnie are very religious person too. They would allow religion to influence their value system, but never to a point so ignorant that you blindly follow what the book say. I would expect someone with a college education to have the basic intelligent to pick the religious practice that make sense.

    Caring someone ONLY after they passed away, is clearly not in my book.
