Thanks to those of you who have commented on my blog.
I sometimes think that people are taking it the wrong way, which I can see why they would.
I just want and need a place to vent my frustrations, as I have said before, with every job comes frustration, there is always “something” or “someone” who just pisses you off or annoys the hell outta you!
Just to add as well, where I work, we have the utmost respect for the deceased. I often get questioned by friends and acquaintances if we ever make fun of the deceased, which for one I cannot even believe that they would ask me that, but anyway, “making fun of” the deceased really has never entered my mind. There is no reason to disrespect them. The “only” thing that may come from anyones mouth that works with me would be something like “Mr. so and so or Mrs. so and so is a large man/women, huh?” And that is only because we move the caskets with them in them. When we transfer them to the funeral home chapel or from the funeral home to the hearse, etc. And it is never meant to be disrespectful. Other times if we are discussing the deceased it may be because the cosmetics may need to be touched up, and someone will say “Mr or Mrs. so and so’s hands look pretty bad, could you touch them up?” or “there are a few bruises coming through the makeup, could you touch them up before the family arrives?”.
But, anyway, it is the people who visit the deceased, the family and friends who are the real pains in the asses, and again, NOT ALL of them are pains. It just feels good to let loose and really rant on what pisses me off. Since it is a touchy subject, not everyone understands my bitching. But thank you to those of you who do.
I have been off for the holiday, so it is back to work tomorrow……yay
