Tip of the day (new)

so, since i have been so busy lately, especially at work! it’s nuts at work actually! I have decided that at least I can post a tip of the day (pertaining to funeral home tips). Maybe some will have multiple tips, depending.

Tip of the day for January 23, 2012

Do NOT bring your baby or small children to a funeral service! ESPECIALLY if you are not going to refrain them from running up and down the halls ( near the steps! or doors!) this is a distraction to EVERYONE! but most of all ME, who is trying to organize and keep things running smooth and QUIET! Babies are just not a good idea period! They cry and scream! Why would you bring one anyway. Why would you bring any small child!?! Funerals are usually long, to a child, and they get anxious, so LEAVE them at home with family or with a sitter or you your self should not attend. It is RUDE if you let your child run around during a QUIET funeral service and not do anything about it. I do not think it is cute nor do I find it funny, so when you see me in the hall and your brat is running by me screaming, please do not look at me and smile or laugh…..Take them outside or to an area where no one can hear them, which is typically OUTSIDE or better yet HOME!



What the……………

What the hell is wrong with people?!?!?!   I just don’t get it! What happened to being respectful of others property? What happened to making sure your children are behaving!!?!?!?!?!! WHAT!?!?!

The other day we had visitation.  There were many children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the deceased and they were all here! Now, just because you are at a funeral home, does NOT mean that you do not have to watch what your kids are doing. I really wanted to smack the face off of your kids! They were taking things and ripping them apart! Our brochures that are in the hall way! Those cost money! They just helped themselves to some of my ink pens that were in the office (must have went in my office when I was not in it) and bent the tips on all the pens! Really! That is how you raise your kids? They were screaming! They were running! There was a little boy, probably about 2 yrs old that you left with the 7 and 8 yr olds……and he kept going to the door and pushing it open and got his fingers stuck and then at one point got outside and the 7 yr old boy was trying to get him back in the building and when he couldn’t he left him alone out there and went to get an adult, that child could have been hit by a car or snatched up by some weirdo in the meantime. Oh and by the way, I AM NOT a babysitter and I refuse to watch after you kids! The funeral home is NOT the place to have kids at all day! I understand that it was their grandmother, but ya know what, bring them for a couple of hours then LEAVE! You have children, that overrides everything! Leave, go home for a few and bring them back with you after they have had time to play or whatever. They get bored being here.  I would definitely get bored being here if  I was a kid. 8 hours are just too long to expect them to sit quietly. As a  parent you should know better! On to the next gripe I have. I say it over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. WHY SO MUCH FUKING FOOD? I think his topped all the families I have had. Absolutely ridiculous!

Okay, now, this is weird for me, but apparently it must depend on your religious beliefs. Why do people take photos of the deceased? I know they “used” to do that years and years ago, but why still do certain people take photos? The took photos with the deceased, just the deceased. They took photos of the children crying and kissing the deceased, they took photos as we closed the casket as well. At one point someone was video taping with their cell phone as the one brother was literally breaking down and yelling and crying. Just seems creepy to me or more like, why would you want to relive that again? More to say about his family, but not enough time right now…..have work to do. More later………………
