This F Minus cartoon shows financial shortsightedness when funeral directors offer a senior discount at a funeral home.
As a man pores over the balance sheet, he says to his funeral home business partner, “We are going to go broke unless we discontinue our senior discount.”
I’m sure there are lots of folks out there who would like to bring such a funeral home their business for a senior discount. But, funeral homes have to take care of their bottom line or they go out of business.
The moral – find out the prices in your area BEFORE there’s a death in the family. And if you have a senior in the family, find out about the discounts and free services available for veterans. There are lots of options out there.
Remember: talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, and talking about funerals won’t make you dead. Start a conversation today.
