A funny rant by a Catholic priest about the foibles of congregants:
1.When you call up to schedule your wedding, don't act all indignant when I ask who the hell you are, since you haven't been to church since your first communion.
2. And don't get in a little nuptial huff when I tell you can't throw rice, birdseed, confetti or any of that crap. Would you want to have to clean up a big mess of that junk from your house every Saturday afternoon? I didn't think so.
3.And do that damn paperwork, get all your certificates in. You'll be really glad you did should the day come when you have to get un-married.
4. Please get some control over your mothers. Your own outrageous demands are bad enough.
5. Have some pity on your poor priest, who has to put up with your ruse that you don't live together, your rude tardiness to your rehearsal, your showing up half-drunk, and the tasteless fashion decisions you make for your wedding party.
6. Oh, and if your forget to get a marriage license, it's not my problem. It's your marriage.
