DIY cremation, now there is an idea. I have dealt with some who seemed to think that doing it accidentally was just fine. I am not sure if they had any religious feeling or wanted to prove their magic by disappearing in a puff of smoke but the sentiment was powerful.
Consider the bloke who was standing in the middle of a group of some 8 people who were fiddling with six five or six dirt bikes (just outside the shed) and as many containers of petrol, some of them open. He stuffs a cigarette in his face pulls out a box of matches, lights the fag and throws down the match. Inhaling deeply, he scans around at peace with the world as the drug envelopes him.
Except for yours truly who yells at him to kill the ciggy immediately or get out of the fuel dump or both.
The offender is offended. He is an adult (technically) and how dare I …
I took the time to explain that what he was doing was fine as long as it didn’t involve me, my family, my house, my shed or anybody I care about. He has never come back.
Another faux pas. Oh dear.
