      I was forced to pay for embalming and a coffin for my mother who was being cremated. All because I wanted a viewing and service. Charged $300 just to pick her up at the hospital. It's a racket

      My mum's a nurse in the city government hospital. She currently works in the surgery department.
      So like, there was this one time a dude got chased and completely MAULED by a bull. Apparently, despite him being almost dead the incharge of the ward still got him admitted. That night the dude had some sort of seizure at 3am and died while struggling quite a lot. The next morning the staff didn't find him intact. Apparently, his insides and blood were sprayed out in the entire room and blood was everywhere.
      My mum still says that the scene gives her nightmares even after so long.

    I went to my grandma's funeral when I was 10 and got so freaked out because she looked like she was sleeping. I thought that at any moment she would open her eyes and sit up in the casket. Now I know she was pumped with red embalming fluid and I honestly feel better for knowing this. The mortician did such a great job with her body! Much respect!

    I really like morticians. I’m an omnist and I believe that death is not a thing to fear at all and morticians are just like some of the only people I’ve talked to who agree with me about death. A dead body is not a scary thing, it’s just a body that’s no longer a person, nothing changed about the body itself just cause they died other than rotting after a while

      @kim jong unnie The "uncanny valley" describes things that creep us out because they look _almost_ human but clearly aren't. A corpse is at the deep end of the "uncanny valley" - as close as you can get to a human being without being one. Unless you count walking corpses, I guess...

    My aunt is a mortician and she loves her job. The reason for her career choice was that she always wanted to be a doctor but hate giving injecting needles for taking blood or injecting a vaccine etc into kids and other people and seeing them cry. She rather put needles in dead people instead. She says it's a relaxing job in a sense and its an honouring and fulfilling to have to give the family a good last look on their loved one who looks peaceful and dressed nicely in the coffin.

    My aunts a hairdresser and was requested by one of her clients to do her mum's makeup and hair for their funeral and she said she talked with her, asked her what colors she'd like for her eye makeup and complimented her hair all the same as a living person. She felt odd doing someone's hair and makeup without them responding, so she used her own discretion by still asking and seeing what suited her face and hair to make her look most like mum again.

    They must have forgotten that cream on my sister. She looked bad. I had thought about that, because her earrings she always wore had gotten lost at the hospital. We got the closest replacements we could find and I volunteered to put them in. So, I also brought a brush, a beauty blender and some lip gloss. Her hair was okay, just very stiff, so I smoothed it out. The foundation and blush was sort of cakey, smoothed that out. But her lips! Totally cracked and dry. A touch of gloss, much better.
    It helped my nephew, he said she looked like his mom and not a mannequin.

    When my grandma passed away they asked my dad what music they wanted to play and he was completely unsure. The mortician asked about my grandma and found out she was a huge fan of Bonanza. Next thing we knew the theme song of Bonanza began playing at the wake. It actually really broke a lot of the tension of the whole situation.

    Almost right at the end when he mentioned that exhumed bodies usually look almost the same even 50 years later, gave me SO much peace. My grandad was embalmed after he passed in 2019 and I hated and still did until then, the idea that my grandad was rotting away and probably just bones, kind of nice knowing he's still in there

    I think the question with why not vertically is getting more and more relevant because most cemeterys, especially in big a big city are 100% full and graves can get insanely expensive just because there is not enough room. A lot of families go for the cremation because it costs so much less at this point.

    With regards to the second to last question, I've seen pictures of decades-old embalmed bodies, some did in fact look more or less intact save for the odd mold patch, or drying skin retracting over the mouth and eyeballs... It's quite bizarre to be sure, kind of like seeing ghosts.

    If I remember correctly, they bury people vertically in D.C., due to lack of room.
    I remember I had a teacher who was talking about how her parent were planning to be buried there. She was joking about how when her mother dies, one of the things on her funeral checklist would be "Make sure Mom's tied up.", so she wouldn't end up becoming a pile in the bottom of the casket...
