Hard Times In West Virginia

Recommended Posts

We had a news report about people doing natural burials. Simple pine caskets no crazy embalming like funeral homes try to push. The death economy is crazy profitable there was a video about how mortuary sales people push you hard to spend on fancy caskets and shit. They play on that guild complex hard. They play the whole well they should be comfortable for eternity. If I die cremate me and do something awesome with them. I wanna do a viking funeral on the great lakes but i think the coast guard might not approve.

I feel bad for the dude doing the repossessing. I've handled my share of couple month old bodies (not human) and his or her job has to stink. I don't know at what point they make the repossession call but at some point you'd be pumping ooze that looks like maggoty chocolate pudding out of the bottom of those boxes. Casket wax anyone?

Even here in my rural-ish part of Texas, there's only one place that "allows" a cowboy burial.

I hate funerals and would prefer not to have one. I hate the thought of anyone's last memory of me being up there in a casket.

 

Plus I have family in the funeral business and know how gruesome the embalming process is.

 

My dad has some horror stories from when he drove an Ambulance/Hearse for them back before we had County Ambulance Service and the Ambulance was operated by the funeral home. Talk about a conflict of interest ?

Is that casket repo a real business or a joke that is fucked up what kind of heartless piece of Low life shit would dig someone up to make a buck 

 

I have to assume it's a joke. There is a lengthy legal process to digging up a body and I'm pretty confident "outstanding balance" isn't going to be sufficient

Running an excavator is easy money. Not a whole lot of people volunteering for the job either I would imagine. Plus they're in a concrete box so you don't have to worry about nicking anything.

My 1st wife wanted a wood casket for her funeral and if I remember it was $2,500 and that was 22 years ago. 


I don't remember all the details, but when my grandpa passed in 03, I remember hearing that his casket was over $6,000. I don't remember if Uncle Sam payed for that or not. He was a WW2 vet.
