So I had a really fat envelope in the mail today.

Top sheet read:

“Dear family Melantrys,

we learned of the death in your family via the daily paper.
By no means do we mean to offend you by sending you our catalogue.
As Germany’s biggest gravestone dealer we’d like to introduce ourselves to you with our new catalogue.

(…) death (…) finality (…) dignified monument (…) thankfulness towards and bond with departed (yadda-yadda)”

This alone would already annoy me immensely.
They claim to be the biggest in Germany, and they have nothing better to do than to trawl the obituaries and send the bereaved families their fucking catalogue?!

What annoys me even more is that they already did the job. The funeral parlour we hired used them to add the new engraving. The stone was done two weeks ago.
Maybe someone should have compared their obituary/catalogue candidates list with their actual order list…

    Probably they are the biggest in Germany _because_ they’re trawling the obits…

    Fucking vultures.

    I can’t believe how cold-hearted they can be. Fucking vultures indeed. *hugs* Be strong, goddess.

    Sending grieving families catalogs seems like a very crappy business practice.

    Please forgive my ignorance Mel and Mafdet, but I do not know who to give you condolences for. I know that your father was not well for a long time. If he has passed, I am very sorry for your loss.

    Well, the undertaker said that he personally feels ashamed of his - in the broader sense - colleagues but that this is common business practice.
    I received another catalogue from another firm and was so angry then that I phoned them up and gave the woman who answered the phone a piece of my mind.

    Yes, you were guessing correctly, but our father died rather suddenly and not of any of the ailments he had before.

    Thank you.
