Life at a funeral home………still the same ole’ BS!
So, really haven’t been able to write in a while. been busy busy! at work and at home. however………the same ‘stab you in the back the minute you turn around’ bitch of a coworker is still up to her usual bullshit! have you ever just hated someone so much? you just can’t stand the sound of their name even? she now knows that she can get away with lying. she knows it and so do the rest of us. well, except the boss, of course.
haven’t had too many pain in the ass families…….which is great!! until day before yesterday! they called just about every hour on the hour Monday. and it wasn’t important questions either! just dumb shit, like about the luncheon. we have nothing to do with the luncheon. then called to ask me about bringing in food, of fucking course! the lady actually went over her list of snacks and other things that she was planning on bringing in to set up during visitation. she was going to the store to get these items and just wanted to go over the list before she left to go purchase them. then called from the grocery store to ask me if she should get more water or soda. i don’t have time for this shit! and every time she would call she would apologize for bothering me and taking up my time, but continue to talk and then of course call back an hour later.
i am still frustrated with people who come to get pricing and then bitch about it to me. i mean…….i don’t know these people, never met them or seen them before in my life, yet the feel it is ok to treat me like shit because i am giving them information THEY asked for! ya know…..i am sorry that you just had a death in your family, but still, it is NOT ok to treat others like shit! and then the threats come……..”well, we will just go down the street to such and such funeral home then and see what they have to say, i am sure they are a lot less than this fucking place”. REALLY? your REALLY being a dick to me? i don’t want you at my funeral home then if your such a freaking asshole anyway! UGH! and why do people think that death certificates are SO private? HATE when families start arguing about the fucking death certificates! i always try to make it a point when families start bickering about them and who gets them to let them know that ANYONE can go the city clerks office and purchase a death certificate on ANYONE they want to! love the reaction i get after i tell them that! either they immediately calm down or get more pissed, like it’s my fault that it’s like that. fuck OFF! that is what i want to say to them! fuck right off! i know i have said it before, but really, when a death certificate is pending, it “can” take up to 6 months, sometimes even longer, before we will receive an amended one! it isn’t the funeral home not doing their job, like most of the pain in the asses think, it is first, the coroner, then the State……….! once we receive a letter from the coroner that they have made the correction to the DC and they have mailed the corrected copy to the State, THEN we will contact the city clerks office, and we WILL NOT contact the city clerks office until AT LEAST 2 weeks after receiving that letter. once the city clerk says, “yes, we have the amended copy”, THEN we, the funeral home, may go get it! I don’t give a shit if you are waiting on insurance policy or not! i don’t care if you have to have one for a mortgage company, cable, etc………I don’t fucking care! it is not going to help you to yell at me! NOTHING i can do about it. AND, just for your information, these companies know that it takes time! you aren’t the only person who has a pending DC that they have dealt with, especially insurance companies!
so…..as you can see, same BS just another freaking day. back to work tomorrow. have a service at 10am, then another family starting their visitation in the afternoon. yippifuckingyay!
