I guess... it would be comforting to know that the company was right behind you in a tight spot.

I'm sure they'd be willing to bend if you really drive the point home.

I think I could do nearly anything as long as I limited it to a couple of years.
Eventually, it would just become repetitive and mundane. No one wants to end up feeling bored, hollow and unfulfilled, regardless of benefits.

It's just a job, not a relationship... right? Wink

I cannot be in charge of cadavers...even for a short while...I just can't. Weeping

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Well, they're already dead... it's not like you could fuck it up any worse for them. Shy

Consider Do you turn into Mr Bean around corpses, or something?

Are you saying that if I invite you to a funeral, we'll end up with a Lucy sketch? 'Cause... I'd kinda be up for that. Smile

lol...that has always seemed odd to me though, this fear people have of corpses. Uncomfortable I understand, seeing our mortality, etc...but many outright fear corpses. All from Hollywood?
Back in the 8o's I was an EMT (Emergency medical technician for those unfamiliar) with a volunteer fire department. The county that provided us the EMT training required that we work a certain number of hours in the county hospital to repay them.
We did alot of things, most of them in the emergency room. But one thing we were LOVED for was our willingness to go draw blood from corpses in the morgue for toxicology.
These were nurses, who were scared witless to go get blood from a corpse!

How odd. I wonder why, evolutionary-wise, so many people have a fear of dead bodies?

They better pay a lot and have incredible benefits for that. Drinking Beverage

In a word, disease.

Avoidance of decay and disease would be evolutionarily selected for.

I'm with you, DarkO - I think it's contrary. :thumbs:
I'm kind of not joking when I say I'd rather be "in charge" of the dead instead of the living, a hospital situation... it would be safer for everyone involved. Wink

Actually, I think it would take a great deal of sensitivity and care to respectfully handle the dead - if for no one but their loved ones. No one performs this in our homogenized American culture. In other cultures, family members bathe and clothe the dead person and physically put it's body into the ground or on a fire.

To me, once there's no life in there, it's just a thing. Someone's got to do something with it ... seems pretty cut and dried. Live people are messy but, dead ones - no fuss, no muss. Most likely, a fuck ton of paperwork, though. Shy
