I didn't hate my uncle in law but he was a cheapskate on a par with Scrooge. when he became old enough to deal with his own funeral arrangements he bought the cheapest coffin the funeral home had on sale. He said no embalming and no vault.

Well some years later the old skinflint did pass away.

At his funeral which was more of a family gathering than anything else while his coffin was being taken to the grave the bottom fell out of the cheap coffin and his body hit the ground.

Nobody knew what to do so the grave diggers put his body on the bottom and then placed the coffin over the body and carefully lowered him into the ground.

His wife sued the funeral home but I feel it was the skinflints fault.

when I visit my Dad and grandmothers grave I never visit his.
