Q. How are you going to pay today (part two)?
A. I felt intimidated and pretty scared. How WAS I going to pay for my Dad’s funeral today? I reached for my Mastercard and hoped I had room on it. The funeral home was happy. A few years later I became a funeral director, borrowed to open my own funeral home, and vowed never to treat clients that way.
