Killjoys. :D

In our region it is/was a standard procedure at funerals.

Unofficially exempted by the cops.

if the gaming is more to pass time rather than serious bets, the authorities could perhaps treat it a way of life issue.

uncontrolled gambling of course would be undesirable.

Somebody within the family must have upset  the b.i.b..

Every funeral in Thailand they have people gambling, so what was different here?

I have been to funerals here were even the police were involved.

I was also under the impression that gambling was only permitted at funerals but she who knows everything tells me that palms need to be greased, that was obviously not the situation here.
