Funeral Money

Another practice at this facility is collecting money for funerals.  Spouses, mothers, fathers, children- at least one family member dies each week.  An obituary is posted by the time clock, which is my warning to be especially elusive.  In the beginning, I contributed $20.  This quickly added up.  I was trying to fit in, to get them to like me.  What happened was that they took my money and then bad-mouthed me behind my back.  I no longer contribute.  I usually don't know the person.  I also figure that no such collection would be made on my behalf if a member of my family died.  I don't even plan on telling them when I have a death in the family.  I will just call out sick for a week and have a doctor write a note.
