You have to wonder

So late one night I was helping with the telephone calls after a death. When the family was ready, I phoned the mortuary. The staffer who answered the phone took all the usual information and then said, "All right then, I'll dispatch our Rapid Response unit."

Rapid response?? Somehow that just seems hilariously wrong when one is talking about transporting a body to a mortuary in the middle of the night. I doubt the owner of the body was concerned about speed any more. It was all I could do not to laugh on the phone.

The staffer wasn't kidding, though. The mortuary driver arrived on the unit 20 minutes later.
