    So someone during the air sort picked up a package that sounded broken. They started shaking it and then threw it on the belt. Come to find out it was someones cremated body that was being spilled all over the place.

    I had an on-call pickup at the crematorium...

    It was all the metal artificial knees and hips that survived the process.

    That box was heavy as hell.

    A shame people can't even properly package an urn.

    I used to do a route with 3 funeral homes, I learned to use the door for flower delivery.

    I had the door codes for the 3 that were on my old route. The only time I looked for someone for a sig was when they got cases of wine.

    What kind of excuse do you think they will tell the family or whoever sent it? Will there be consequences or is it just their fault for throwing it in a box with out peanuts or whatever?

    Cremated remains aren't allowed in the UPS system. If the shipper would have taken the time to read that then perhaps Aunt June wouldn't be spread all over Zappos boxes, never mind packing them like you actually might have cared.

    I saw a documentary on Netflix that said that we are still breathing the molecules of air that Jesus breathed over 2000 years ago.

    I think ill have another glass of wine as I contemplate that one.

    It may be more convenient for the owners to have it sent there rather than to their home.
