Some years ago my uncle owned a bar, and the whole family went there to drink. One day they were all at the bar and a guy they didn't know came in and had a drink. To their horror, he had a heart attack and died right there in the booth. Well, it was snowing and also night-time, and the medical examiner had to come from many miles away before the body could be moved. So there he sat in the bar for hours. After a while the patrons started sitting next to the guy and having their pictures taken, then a cardboard sign was added that read, "Dead Guy." Apparently they had so much fun they wished other people would die at the bar, too.

The morgue usually isn't being opened constantly, doesn't contain food to serve to customers, and the cadavers are often done with much of their leaking by the time they arrive.

Hey, RTFA, it happened in Croatia, not America. It makes way more sense for the UK to cover a story in Europe of this nature than an American paper.

No, it really happened. I've heard the stories about 300 times now. Plus the pictures.

I forgot to add how they sat around and made jokes about how dead the bar was that night, and how dead and boring their new friend was, until they almost peed their pants. 'DEAD'!! LOLOL

Had a woman die in the bathroom at Books a Million years back, closed the bathroom and called an ambulance, and business went on as usual. You can't just stop being a business because someone dies, whether it's a bookstore or a a fast food joint. Otherwise that dead person costs tens of thousands of dollars worth of business if not more.

Im surprised they even closed the store right away, usually youd have to go up the chain of command, in the case of mcdonalds probably the franchise owner. And as far as what to do after that... Employee sees customer drop dead, informs shift manager. Shift manager doesnt remember that part of the handbook, calls the general manager, general manager calls franchise owner, franchise owner calls corporate, corporate has to convene a quick meeting of the lawyers, have to call back the owner, who has to call the store who has to tell the employees not to touch the body.

From the FArQ:

"Boobies" time warp

For whatever reason message boards on sites like Fark are forever plagued with morons posting "Boobies" anytime a link is posted. Fark automatically turns the words "Boobies" into the word "boobies" and resets the timestamp on the message to some time in the future so that it isn't the Boobies anymore. Attempts to evade that sometimes result in it becoming "weeners" instead of "boobies".

What were they supposed to do instead?

One of the grocery stores I worked in during college had a lady drop dead on one of our baggers who went outside with her to her car. For the next month, most of the employees wouldn't let him touch their stuff and would call out, 'No, you'll kill me.' They let him go home early that day.

Have you ever worked a menial corporate job? Thats what its actually like, NO ONE has any decision making authority. When i worked at walmart i know only the store manager and assistant store manager were allowed to call emergency services, the handbook was very explicit about it, as in you could be fired for calling 911 in an emergency instead of informing the manager.

When i was working at office max, one weekday night we had one of the worst storms on record, half to roads in the city were flooded, we hadnt had a customer in 3 hours, the roads were getting worse city bus service had even stopped, and me and my employees werent sure if we were going to be able to get home, i of course didnt have the authority to send anyone home or close early, had to call district who had to ok with corporate to close early. Which of course didnt happen, since there werent any more transactions i did all the closing work ahead of time and we were able to leave about 5 minutes after closing time. Took me over 2 hours to get 10 miles home...Find out the next day not too long after we left part of the roof collapsed.
