  • WTF? You forget to bury someones remains then forget whose remains they are, so you just bury them with a bunch of other remains that you forgot about too? Clearly your system for accountability needs an update. :/

  • You'd be amazed at the shenanigans that go on in the funeral/burial system. If you checked the body of your loved one before burial you might find parts missing and even bones replaced with plastic tubing from a plumbers store, hip joint replacements removed and even bones that don't belong to a body added to "make up the quantity".
