I'm a Funeral Services graduate embarking on a new career. I graduated high school in 1981, served honorably in the United States Navy from 1982-1986, been married since 1986, and have one son. I've relocated to a new state and have begun working in my chosen profession of Funeral Services, and I've never been happier.

It Was Nice While It Lasted

Well, the slowdown is officially over. We had something on the order of 5 calls over the weekend. I made the removals on 4 of them. Our new intern thought it would be funny to tell me, "I hope you get busy this weekend!" while I'm the one on call and we're so shorthanded thanks to the loss of a director and a secretary who is out tending to her sick mother. So tomorrow I have to go to the other location, work on a bunch of death certificates because the absent secretary is the only one over there who knows how to use the new system. Then I have to go to the other location to lead a funeral out to the national cemetery. I have repeatedly told the boss that he needs to get another person up to speed on that system, but he seems to think he doesn't need to. Well, he does, despite what his dumb ass thinks. I tried to encourage our intern to get qualified, but he says he's too busy getting through school to actually learn his job. Can you tell I'm a little bit miffed right now? I worked all day yesterday, and all day today, and for the second week in a row, I am having to come in on my day off and help with all this business. The upside to all this is I get to zing the boss for about 13 hours of overtime at time and a half. Cha-ching!
