Six Feet Blunder

Customer: “How much for two graves?”

Me: “Spaces are $900 each, ma’am, so $1800 for two.”

Customer: “There’s no discount for buying more than one?”

Me: “No, ma’am; because we’re deeding you the property, we have to treat each space separately.”

Customer: “So, what if I buy five graves?”

Me: “Because the spaces are $900 each, five would cost $4,500.”

Customer: “Never mind, I don’t want to go in the ground anyway. What about those little crypt thingies that look like New Orleans graves?”

Me: “A personal mausoleum crypt for two people runs at $13,000 including the name plating and vases.”

(The customer inspects our display model.)

Customer: “This thing’s pretty big. I’ll just buy this double one, and there will be enough space for all six of us.”

Me: “Um, no, ma’am. This is for two people. There is only space for two, not six.”

Customer: “I’m not stupid! You people are trying to rip me off! I’ll just tell my kids to put me in the backyard next to the hamster!”
