Life working at a funeral home – just another day
Just wanted to say a few things…..
First and foremost I want to THANK everyone who reads my blog and/or subscribes and follows! I do truly appreciate it. I also LOVE hearing from you all when you comment……yes, even the bad comments, because when I do get those comments from those who disagree with me it say that I am hateful, etc…. it gives me insight into how people perceive those who work in the funeral business.
Secondly, I want to first apologize for ALL my spelling errors!! and last, thank you to all of you for not pointing out all my spelling errors! I typically blog from my phone is tablet. When I do so from my phone, I actually hate it because, and I’m pretty sure I have said this before, me and the WordPress app just don’t get along. So I had to uninstall it from my phone so when I have to blog from my phone it is really slow and irritating. When I blog from my tablet, it is easier and I do have the app installed and I do have spell correct, but it seems I get ahead of myself when typing and the spell correct doesn’t keep up. And sometimes….I just don’t care. I figure you all know what I meant to say…lol
Things have been pretty steady at work. It seems lately we have been able to sneak in a quiet day here and there….thank goodness. It let’s me get caught up on my work.
Haven’t had too many horrible families either, just the usual stuff that drives me nuts…..YES….food!!! I so bad want to tell people NO, we don’t allow food! But, I do not own the business so its not my call. I just will never understand the way people feel about having to bring in so much food! I understand snacks and water but when you start bringing in coolers and trays full of it, that’s getting carried away! I also get people, a lot of people, that call specifically to ask what they can bring in. Anyway, I am ranting again about food…..
And last on my mind is how come some people get irritated when they find out that they will not be the only family at the funeral home for visitation??!!?? Most funeral homes I have ever been too have more than one chapel and usually have more than one family there at a time. There are those who don’t mind but there are those who do, and are really put off by it.
Hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to Spring, IF it ever gets here! We had snow, AGAIN, yesterday and last night. It is still cold too. Didn’t get above freezing today and the lows have been in the teens. I have sooooooooo had it with being cold!!
