Not so much creepily said as creepily done.
We had just been present for my uncles passing when a priest came in to comfort the family, he came up behind me and started rubbing my shoulders for a good 10 minutes as he talked to my relatives. He never moved around the room either, just stayed behind me rubbing my shoulders-
I can only sarcastically poke at why no one said anything, maybe even make a bad joke about how my family IS catholic… But it speaks for itself. Very creepy and badly timed.
