Greed has no upper limit. Good morticians are not necessarily good businessmen. When the pressure of poor business decisions causes controversy within the firm, actions will be taken to bring the situation back into balance. While the two partners were excellent morticians, they did not fully agree on the process for supplementing the firm's income. This is a story about two morticians who found themselves financially vulnerable and decided to supplement business income through unconventional means. Initially, they attempted minor pilfering of bodies, but while useful, this process did not generate enough income to offset operating losses in the firm. Therefore, they engaged a more sinister process involving simple technology to extract long forgotten valuables from long forgotten graves. Inevitably, these types of activities are going to attract the attention of individuals outside the firm. As the process expands, steps had to be taken to silence those who uncovered the scheme and threatened to notify authorities. What this story shows is that human nature is often fragile and sinister. We are not able to be expert in everything we do and personal relationships can compel us into taking actions that we know are unethical, immoral, illegal, and personally offensive. When we encounter challenges in life that we cannot fully control or that, if left unresolved, will cause significant damage, we are often forced into activities that spin out of control and create greater damage than what would have occurred without the activities. Grave robbing is viewed by most people as more despicable than other capital offenses. What seemed like a short term, fool proof method for supplementing the firm's income and thus saving the enterprise in the long run, became a morass of ill-gotten gains, shattered interpersonal relationships, and an uncontrollable situation that ultimately destroyed lives and destroyed the enterprise. This story attempts to show how interactions in the economy can and often do trip up the most competent of participants. The two morticians engaged in a process of pawning their ill-gotten merchandise with little understanding about how the pawning business works. When they had obtained a ring from a grave that had not been disturbed for two decades, they had no expectation that somebody would recognize that ring. This recognition set in motion a process involving private detectives, police, and others that ultimately found its way to the two morticians. As the increasingly complex interactions between inside and outside actors emerged, one of the partners got cold feet and wanted to stop the income supplementation process. Since both partners were equally culpable and had information that could easily result in jail-time or worse, the partner who wanted to leave the enterprise had to be prevented from doing so. The story comes to a crashing end when a police officer recognizes that a family member's grave had been robbed and the perpetrators had to be punished. This story shows that actions have consequences, sometimes unintended consequences, which resolve many problems while simultaneously creating other problems.
