    I'd say this defines Faux Pas

    We are in our 70's. Wife has an autoimmune disease, we are not fearful of the current health crises, but we are cautious. In yesterdays mail we received a 16 question funeral planning survey from a local funeral home. The second sentence ".....what people want and need at this most difficult time." First question: How old are you?; third response is a check box in front of "66 or older".

    I've attended a couple of technical conferences in Frascati, Italy. Last time I was there, I stayed near the hospital, and noticed an ad for a funeral director prominently placed on the gate at the hospital entrance. I think that showed a certain lack of sensitivity.

    Edit: Just took a look on Google street view. Not only is it still there, but there are several more.

    Steve, that really is pretty bad. I think the local guy here just had a very poorly timed mailing with an unfortunate turn of phrase. Then again, never let a good virus go to waste.
