This is a question Funerals II

It's been 7 years since we last asked for your funeral stories and what with Lady Voldemort's coming up, we thought we'd ask again.

The deeply upsetting, the sad and the ones that make you want to hug the world all have a place here on b3ta, tell us about them.

Thanks to Pig Bodine for the suggestion

Tempting Fate!
Told to me by a good friend and fellow Headteacher, and although truncated, is nevertheless true.

One of her teaching staff came to her to ask for some time off for her mother's funeral. Nothing wrong with that you think. As a Head, I never refused anybody time off for a funeral. If they felt they had to go, they just had to ask. And I never stopped anyone any pay. What? Oh, the story. She'd had a week off the month before................................... for her mother's funeral! Questions, needless to say, were asked, resulting in a disciplinary hearing later that term. Turns out she'd fancied a week off, only for her mother to meet a very sad, and untimely, end soon after.

Sometimes it doesn't do to tempt Mrs Fate, she has a nasty way of getting her own back.

Surely, she should have had the wit to suggest the name of another relative.
These people deserve their punishment for being stupid.

But then who could have predicted? The problem with suggesting another relative, is that it usually only merits a single day off. The young lady got what she deserved for being greedy.

Rachael Miles, a Solihull social worker, was struck off recently after lying about the deaths of her parents, uncle, aunt, brother and ex-husband, to get time off work.
Just greedy.
