Between a Rock and ....

Some time ago…..twenty years or so, I answered the funeral home phone and it was a woman calling us to request our services for her mother who had died. I started to say “I am sorry for your loss”, but was cut off abruptly with, “You are not sorry…you didn’t know my mother and you are happy you are getting the business”
OK…Good Point.

Sounds like someone is a little put out at being interrupted by death.

I think any human can be taken at their word when they say they regret the passing of another human being.

That's true. Placing an economic spin on such sentiments is unfair.
