Ahhh, summer time.

For your teacher friends, that means two whole months of vacation.

For the rest of your friends that means at least one 2-week long vacation.

But for you, my fellow funeral director, summer time just means there’s a bigger change you might catch some sunlight when you get out of work. It’s no secret that being a funeral director means little to no vacation time. But sometimes you get that “itch” where you just gotta get away. Wondering if you’re due for a vacation just yet? Here are 18 signs you’re a funeral director in need of a vacation… right now.

1. You can’t remember the last time you saw sunlight.

2. Probably because you’re used to waking up before the sun rises.

3. Coffee is pretty much the only thing keeping you alive.

3. Even still, you sometimes feel like you are on the verge of dropping dead.

4. Your friends no longer ask how you are because they already know the answer.

5. You can’t remember the last date you didn’t have to cancel or leave.

8. You genuinely don’t want to hear about your friend’s awesome vacation experience.

9. You’re usually a “YES” person, but lately if a fellow funeral director asks for a favor, you just can’t right now.

10. Why? Because you’re just sooooo tired.

11. Like, beyond the point of exhaustion.

12. Yep. At this point, any hope of long-term concentration has been abandoned.

13. And the only people you can talk to about it can’t actually listen (maybe because they’re not living).

14. It’s safe to say you’re not sure how much longer you can go on like this.

15. The only thing you have to look forward to is the moment you get to go home and change in your comfy clothes.

16. And to the imaginary vacation you’ve been day dreaming about for months.
