This is why I throw out every second resume without reading them - it weeds out unlucky people.

I don't care if all you could hold up was a jawless head with a dangling, wet brain stem, dripping with ejaculate.  If you went to the doctor, you'd bring back a sick note.  If you went on vacation, you'd have a signed permission slip from me to authorize it.  Why wouldn't you be required to provide some proof that you attended a funeral?  I'm the one that has to scramble around and find someone to fill your shift.  The calls don't stop coming just because your sweet dear mother passed away.  Perhaps she would've lived had she possessed the simple dignity to teach you how the world works.

When I was manager of large call center - 350 people per shift, four shifts - I required a picture of the employee with the deceased.

zabadu: I think you've attended enough and give you a pass to skip whichever ones you want to from now on.

But if you don't go to other people's funerals, they won't go to yours!

chevydeuce: the place I work gives 3 days bereavement pay for deaths in the immediate family (on top of whatever vacation/sick days you want to take) and 5 days if the dead family member services are going to be more than 350 miles away....a former co-worker had a brother in Arkansas that died (we're in California), so he took the 5 days bereavement leave....now, he didn't travel to Arkansas for the funeral mind you...no, he just took the 5 days off....I thought that was a little odd.

We all grieve in our own way, I grieve with whiskey and hookers, it's a healing process.

When I was at my first real job after passing the bar, within 4 weeks of being there, I had two funerals.  One great-grandmother and one grandmother.  When my aunt dies two weeks later, I didn't ask to go to the funeral, but mentioned it to someone in the office.  At my 90 day review, they let me go because of all the time I missed (and a genetic predisposition to dying).
