High School Reunion Horror Stories: I Disparaged The Dead

This weekend, so-called adults will have awkward high school reunions all across America. We asked you for your worst high school reunion horror stories. We're publishing our favorites during the holiday. Here's one, from NR, of Sparks, Nev.

At my 10 year reunion, I was in the foyer outside the ballroom getting a drink. I opened the door to the ballroom and walked in a few steps.

It was only later in the restroom that someone told me I had inadvertently interrupted a momment of silence for our dear departed dead classmates.
