Here’s an idea for when it’s finally your turn to go.
dailymail.co.uk: At Robert L. Adams Mortuary in Compton, California, family members can have a dead relative placed on show in an open casket behind a drive-thru display window.
The owner says it means well-known locals can be viewed on masse, older people don’t have to leave cars and those afraid of funeral parlours don’t have to go inside.
Isn’t that so considerate of the dead you?
Only a few other drive-thru funeral parlours are known to operate in America, with one in Chicago and another in Louisiana.
Robert L. Adams owner Peggy Scott Adams said: ‘It’s a unique feature that sets us aside from other funeral parlours.’
Kids, do you get the impression this is going to become a trend? I’m willing to bet there’ll even be a drive thru hamburger joint 16 feet behind your dead body, in case friends and relatives suddenly develop an appetite.
You can come by after work, you don’t need to deal with parking, you can sign the book outside and the family knows that you paid your respects,’ she said.
The venue became popular for gang funerals after cemetery shootouts in the 1980s made members reluctant to gather for funerals, Mrs Adams said.
But this being 2011, there will soon be irresistible bells and whistles when it’s finally your turn to go. Hopefully there’ll be a drive thru drinking saloon down the street after friends and family have had their fair share of grieving over your dead body.
Shouldn’t you be buried in a drive thru mortuary one day too?
