Mortuary work doesn’t exactly pay well, but it has its compensations. It teaches you useful life skills: sewing, stitching, hair and makeup, among others.
You learn to disguise bruises, burns, bullet holes, and a hundred other indignities. You figure out how to extract gold teeth without damaging the bridge, and how to remove titanium implants while leaving the client intact beneath their funerary garb.
Navigating a wedding ring over swollen knuckles can be a nightmare, but it’s worth it. A snip here, a stitch there, and you’ve got another gleaming addition to your retirement fund.
The best part? Nobody ever checks.
