Master Dollar Stretcher aka AmyBob
Around here, it's customary to pull off to the side of the road and wait as a funeral procession goes past you. (As in when it's coming towards you in the opposite lane- not if it's behind you!) I never thought twice about it, and in fact, get pretty annoyed when other cars drive around me and continue down the road as a funeral goes by. I think it's just a sign of respect, and wouldn't dream of driving on unless there was some pressing reason- ie, blocking an ambulance or something. My friend from out of state, however, had never heard of such a thing, and had no idea what I was getting so annoyed about. Does anyone else do this?
