STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Nov. 21 (UPI) Two sisters said they want a district court Stockholm, Sweden, to force a group of undertakers to pay them damages for dropping their father’s coffin.

The lawyer for the two sisters, whose identities were not reported, alleges the undertakers carrying the coffin during the February 2008 funeral were drunk and dropped the casket on its side inside the grave, The Local reported Saturday.

“Both daughters were in shock and ran away in tears from the cemetery,” attorney Michael Abejon alleges in the Sodertorn District Court claim filed by the sisters.

“They didn’t dare to look in the grave as they were convinced the coffin had opened and their dead father had fallen out.”

I remember when I was 14, I was working for a donut shop and I dropped a carton of milk that spilled all over the floor. I was really embarassed about it, but as I started to apologize to my boss, she smiled and said “no use crying over spilled milk.” I really appreciated her understanding of the situation. I wonder if these undertakers got the same treatment from their boss. “No use crying over spilled corpses.” It’s a lesser known expression, but when in rome…am i right?
