I am a 18 year mortician who babysits grieving families after death of a loved one. I dread going to work. Death is ugly when you throw in funeral parlors and religion and money. I see ugly things in humanity. I do not believe in my product any longer. Fresh out of college I just wanted to be the guy in the prep room embalming bodies. Eventually pushed to the forefront, selling caskets, wearing a suit and dealing with ugly corporate bosses and crying customers because everyone in this world is so miserable.
My wife sells cheap Chinese products at the Container Store 40 hours a week. Shit you don't need. She gave up funeral directing a few years ago. Her bosses rule with an iron fist.
We are done. Our last day at both jobs is May 23. We are loading our critters and everything in a uhaul and moving. We are buying a RV to live in when we get there and will expand as we go. There is septic, well water and electric. All the farm equipment you could ask for. We are good to go. This is family property currently caring for 7 horses. About 15 miles from anywhere. My wife's parents are in declining health and are happy to let us work the land. We have access to a 5 acres grass pasture and the other 5 are heavily wooded. I will finally have a place for a small outdoor garden of my own. If you catch my drift :reb: Been an indoor grower for years.
I know full well I will eventually need a job somewhere to make ends meet, but I am done with inhumanity in the big city. And I am done with death.
I'll keep you updated and am gonna need some knowledge as well from you. *edit*
