People keep playing Pokemon Go at funerals
Virtually everyone is playing Pokemon Go at the moment. It's tough to put it down. Really tough. In fact even during funerals, people still won't put the damn game down.
Like this guy.
Which is worse, a Pokemon being at a funeral home mid-wake, or me knowing that he's there? pic.twitter.com/vLE5oKa3Vd— David S. Bernstein (@dbernstein) July 12, 2016
For reference, it's definitely worse that you know he's there. Squirtle doesn't know what he's doing.
On the bright side, Pokemon does seem to be cheering people up on sad days...
My brother tried to cheer me up yesterday at the funeral by telling me to play Pokemon go w/ him & we walked so far pic.twitter.com/PGy6gUSc80— Smokey The Bear (@Lulu_Cachoo) July 11, 2016
But a lot of people are questioning why all the Pokestops have to be on graves.
And other people are complaining about a lack of Pokemon at funerals.
Tonight at my step-grandpa's funeral dinner, my nieces and I decided to try this whole Pokemon shebang. Caught 2. We are HOOKED.— Electra (@electraboo) July 12, 2016
Even Lizzie Borden's grave is a gym.
Lizzie's Borden's grave is a Gym?! That is absolutely hilarious. Do all Pokemon automatically get axes to battle? pic.twitter.com/7kg3WfcqaG— Bryant (@redsoxfan426) July 12, 2016
And a lot of people feel like they're Burke and Hare.
Pokémon go made me go to a grave yard to get Pokéballs and one of the stops is a headstone i felt like im grave robbing people— Coup707 (@coup707) July 12, 2016
And they're even tresspassing at night, getting tresspassing warnings in fricking graveyards in order to capture Psyducks.
Don't go into a cemetery to catch Pokemon at night even if you gotta catch um all pic.twitter.com/XzWtwJBkrO— Džaddy™ (@ColinBrezniak) July 12, 2016
And bumping into family, who are also trespassing / grave robbing.
I just accidentally ran into my sister in a grave yard playing Pokemon go— Uma Thurman (@MackenzieLeigh_) July 13, 2016
And hopping graveyard fences...
I just witnessed people trying to hop the fence of the cemetery to get a Pokémon oh my God pic.twitter.com/CPAv7GMjM8— Mal (@Malloryidoni) July 11, 2016
And making graveyard friends. They're not even goths.
Met random people playing Pokemon - we're now in a graveyard looking for Gengar.. pic.twitter.com/37xyPzMo05— djarii (@Djari328) July 10, 2016
OMG THIS GUY PULLED OVER IN THE GRAVEYARD AND ASKED ME IF I WAS PLAYING POKEMON GO LMAOO pic.twitter.com/VkKfpiUZjc— rad brown ahmed mamu (@radbrowndads) July 10, 2016
So if you're on the fence about whether it's acceptable to capture pokemon at a graveyard...
If i die soon, its probably bc i got haunted and killed by some ghost bc I went to a GRAVEYARD at MIDNIGHT to find Pokémon today 🙃👏🏼— sid (@SidOnTop) July 13, 2016
Don't be. It's fine, apparently.
Hanging around a Graveyard at 9am catching Pokemon 😎— Elle (@Flloell) July 15, 2016
Even at 9am on a Friday.
