Didn't happen to me, just asking reactions.

You are in public, and your phone rings. A different member of your family tells you that your Brother/Sister/Parent has just died in an accident.

How do you react?

I had this thought today, and I don't have much of an idea of what I'd do. I might throw the phone and start swearing uncontrollably. I'd also probably knock over/throw shit in my immediate vicinity, depending upon where I am. Once I calmed down a bit I'd most likely breakdown.

What do you think you would do?

I'd question why such important and life-changing news was given over the phone rather than in person. Then I'd cry. Lots. Believe it or not, the one I'd miss most in my family is my dog. Probably my best friend, seriously.

The combination of the thread title and your username is kinda funny.

OT: I think I'd probably be sick, I don't know what else and I hope I don't find out.

Lolz.

Bit of a strange topic with quite a few of the same answers I'd guess, but I'd still like to know what people would do.

I wouldn't know what to do. I probably wouldn't believe them if they were telling me over the phone.
I think I'd just go home and cry.

I chuckled. Thanks for pointing that out.

I would cry, while simultaneously try and figure out how I can get to them. I think grief comes first, then when I've had more time to let it sink in, I'd be mad, then depressed.

I'd probably not visibly react in public when I'd be around other people, but once I was alone I'd let it out

I would start to have feelings of bitter disappointment then that would lead to alcoholism.

I was called on my way back from work one night when my dad was taken to the hospital. I was too naive back then and ignored the seriousness of the call.

Though he didn't die that night, he passed on 6 days later. Looking back, I realize that I handled hearing that information all wrong.

Edit: To be more OT, I guess having gone through what I have, I'd reactly much differently now. Might not be able to contain myself for more than a few minutes.

For realz, I'd probably be more in shock than anything else. My dog of 14 years was put down last February (I just noticed it's almost been a year ) and I was more shocked than saddened, but either way, I probably wouldn't react violently/dramatically.

Dear Diary,

Today my first world life took a turn for the worse.

My whore mother got an SUV, when I clearly am gay for the Prius. I hope my life just ends soon, it's too much.

Love,
Xiaoxi

You know, it's REALLY rude to ruffle through my diary. Asshole.

Stop leaving your room unlocked and your diary on top of your desk. At least hide it for Christ's sake.
