I agree with Vuboq and dykewife on the whole funeral thing. I don't want to go and I think a group gift basket would be more than enough.
However, I talked to one of our sales guys and it turns out just about everyone is going to go. So I think that if only 2 or 3 people don't go that would make them look like assholes. So it seems now that everyone is going to go. So I found out that some people are actually going to go to the cemetery AND the after luncheon. Which in my opinion is completely intrusive. My main sales guy wants to go up, hit the funeral, and go back home. So that is my plan. I think it is intrusive for us all to be there in the first place, but if I am guilted into going I am leaving as soon as possible.
So that's going to be my Thursday.
