Tip of the Day for February 6, 2012
(I mentioned this in a comment I made recently and said I should use it as one of my “Tips of the Day”….so here goes)
When the staff are carrying flowers into the chapel during your visitation, PLEASE DO NOT hover over them to see who those flowers are from! WAIT until the staff actually sets them down and walks away. This is annoying!! I can feel you behind me and that makes me feel like I must hurry. I have had 2 to 3 people standing behind me waiting for me to move and I they are saying “oh, how pretty, wonder who they are from?” and the other saying “I don’t know, I can’t see/read the card”. I have my back to you and rolling my eyes at you! I want to turn around and say ‘BACK THE HELL OFF!” Also, when you as a family or just a friend who is visiting, when you see someone walking thru the room with a GIANT plant AND a plant stand, MOVE! MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! for the love of God, MOVE! I am not sure why no one gives a shit, but every single time there are alot of people in the room and one of us is TRYING to carry a flower and stand everyone just stares at you….they see you coming their way, but they just freaking stand there and stare at you! I say excuse me, and they just freaking stand there! Some may move and inch or so…gee, thanks! I cannot even begin to try to explain how much that pisses me and the other funeral home staff off! Also know that I am probably going to be coming back that way in about 30 seconds to get the hell outta the room, so stay put to where you moved to! AND…when you see me or another worker carrying ANOTHER flower and stand about 2 minutes later….guess what….MOVE AGAIN! Same goes for chairs. If we have a large service at the funeral home and have to set up more chairs then move your ass out of the way so I can set them up for you to sit in! I am doing this for YOUR comfort, NOT MINE! So if after I have carried a few chairs in and hit my chins on them over and over and you STILL won’t move, then I stop giving a shit if you stand or not and could care less about your comfort. SO…..when everyone is sitting and you have no chair….DO NOT come to find me and ask for one! I am just mind boggled as to why people will not move……!?! I just do not understand if you see someone coming and you see that they have arms full of chairs (that are heavy and awkward) why you wouldn’t move for them! ERRGGHHH!
