Hope you all reach your destination

A friend of our family in South Africa has a black station wagon, which he sometimes hires out to the undertakers as a hearse if they have too many funerals on any given day and not enough hearses. Given the high mortality rate due to Aids, he was frequently called upon to provide this service. He asked the undertakers if everything was going well, and they indicated that they were very grateful for hi help, but could he please remove the bumper sticker from his car. It was an old road safety sticker (similar to our RTA) which read “ARRIVE ALIVE”

Great story mate !! I interviewed today for a house just half a block away from a funeral home so at least the neighbourhood would be quiet :-)
