Woman Says She Can Show Up To Your Funeral If You Pay Her $50, People Start Sending Her Money

We are all aware that funerals are no fun deal. It’s either heartbreaking experiencing a loved one’s passing and the whole ordeal is nothing but a cruel reminder of their loss. Either that or the awkward feeling of being stuck at a funeral of some distant relative that you’ve never even seen before. However, if there’s one place where funerals can sometimes be cool, it’s movies.

Either while faking their death or trying to hide away their double life, movie characters tend to have dramatic funeral moments. Perhaps inspired by that a 26-year-old author Dana Schwartz proposed her new job prospect in a series of tweets that have since gone viral. While, surely, it was quite a weird offer, no one can deny that Schwartz came up with something very interesting.

Very funny. I would personally like someone to walk up to my casket and fire 6 shots right through it just to "make sure I'm dead this time". Even funnier if they stop to reload and fire off another lot.

And one more after a pause for a good measure. LOL

I once met a woman at an antique shop, she bought a huge dramatic top hat embellished with a stuffed RAVEN and layers of nets and laces. She wore it, looked at me and said "I will wear this to my husband's funeral when he kicks the bucket". I greatly desire to see that funeral.

A few years ago I went past a cemetery on a tram, it was raining and there was a funeral happening. Apart from the priest there was one elderly man attending, who was crying. So I got off the tram and went and stood next to him. He just held my hand and I nodded and stood firm for him. Was his wife, he knew I didn't know either of them but he thanked me for getting off the tram that day. I asked her name and told him I'd plant a tree in her honour. I was homeless at the time, staying in a refuge for women. We planted a big rubber tree in the yard and I wrote their names on the trunk with a sharpie. RIP Marjory. Gone but never forgotten ...
