    No pockets in a shroud so I guess his estate gets the bill.

    As an aspiring author, I conceived of a small town where the ambulance does double duty as a hearse.(and pizza delivery van.)

    Remain on the line. Do not attempt first aid. An ambulance will be there eventually.

    Or as I said to a clueless bill collector after my Grandfather died: “We can’t go digging him up just for YOU, now can we?”

    A relative of mine died in a “rest home” living on social security and disability checks – which were signed over to the home for the health care he needed. After he died, a collection agency must have seen an obit or something and contacted my parents repeatedly in attempts to collect from the “estate”(of which there was nothing). After about a month of this, my dad walked out to the patio charcoal grill scooped up a cup or so of ash, dumped it into a small plastic bag, put the bag into a legal envelope and mailed it to the collection agency with a note to call him when the envelope was delivered.
    They called, very upset, and wanted to know what was in the plastic bag, telling my dad they had called the police, thinking it was some sort of chemical weapon or something. My told them to shut-up and quit harassing us for money that isn’t there, adding that they had their “pound of flesh” in the envelope, and if they tried to take this to court he would call the local news media. He would then give the new media recordings of all the collection calls we had received along with a tape of where the ashes came from.
    The collection agency hung up and never called us again.

    At one point during my career with the U.S. Postal service I worked as the Claims Clerk. My job was to investigate lost packages, etc.

    One day I got a call from a local funeral parlor. Seems that the day before they had sent registered mail the ashes of a dearly departed to the town across the lake, but those ashes hadn’t yet arrived. The services were scheduled to begin shortly and everyone was at the cemetery standing around and waiting.

    I made a few hasty phone calls and discovered the urn still in the safe of a small Post Office near the cemetery. They sent a special messenger and he arrived about an hour after the scheduled start of the ceremony.

    The services finally began but, alas, our poor boy was late for his own funeral.

    The dearly departed must’ve been one VEY successful procrastinator.

    Now that is ‘on-time efficiency’? Reminds us of too many promises…..even some politicians….
