Late For His Own Funeral?
There’s a funeral home not far from my house. On my way to drop off an anniversary present for my daughter-in-law, I drove past their hearse, which appeared to be pulled over by a member of the local constabulary. How often do you see a hearse pulled over by a cop? I drove down the street, made a couple of “Michigan lefts” on the boulevarded highway and stopped to snap a few pics.
To be honest, I don’t know if it was a traffic stop. Both the police SUV and the hearse were in the leftmost of three lanes, just past a traffic turnaround where they could have pulled over out of traffic, so it might have been a mechanical issue with the professional car, though the hearse’s emergency flashers were not on. From the location, the driver of the hearse was likely on the way back to the shop from doing a pickup of a body at a nearby hospital. It’s an orthodox Jewish funeral home, and Jews bury their dead quickly, within 24 hours of death if possible, so it’s also possible that the driver was in a rush.
Either way, death notwithstanding, it makes for a humorous picture. I can just imagine the police officer greeting the driver with, “Where you going so fast? Your passenger is in no hurry.”
