The director of the funeral home is a walking example of why people of certain professions need constant psychological support. His family has owned the funeral home for three generations, and it’s obvious that he’s a little too used to the discussions of “This was a good year: many fresh, juicy corpses” variety.
He started the memorial service with the following speech:
“When my father owned this funeral home, he buried about 16 people a year. And we buried 600 people here in 2013 and are hoping to do even better next year! And why do we bury so many more people? It’s because we are such caring people! And now let me show you the most important object in my life. I have it right here!”
And he whipped out a money clip with a bunch of banknotes.
“Yes, money!” he exclaimed beaming. “But it isn’t just money! It’s the money clip my grandfather left me. And every time I look at it, I think about this great business he left me. So I hope that in the future, when you have funerary needs, you will come to us!”
