“It’s such a shame that you never gave your dad a grandchild” – Lady reveals insensitive things people said to her after her father’s death
A Nigerian lady, identified simply as Wunmi, has shared the insensitive comments people made to her after her father passed away.
Taking to Twitter on Saturday, September 23, Wunmi disclosed that one of the women who called to ‘sympathize’ with her stated that it is a shame that she didn’t give her father a grandchild before he died.
She said another woman told her to stop crying over her father’s death at his funeral and instead focus on finding a husband and bearing children.
The bereaved lady wrote,
“Also, I want to talk about people being 100% inappropriate and saying the worst things to people grieving. A woman called to pay condolences and just blurted out “it’s such a shame you never gave your dad a grandchild.
“Another person tapped me while I was crying at the cemetery to say “this isn’t what’s important now, focus on finding a husband and having a child” my father’s body hadn’t even entered the ground. I didn’t know either of these people before.
“By the time I realized what was said, I just gathered myself and walked away because really, I didn’t have the strength. It wasn’t my problem. My daddy was gone and he was never going to speak to me again.”
