Don't Swear at the Dead

A well-mannered person does not swear, especially when someone is in earshot.

But, what if the only "person" in earshot is deceased?  You might think, "Dead men and women cannot hear."  This may be true, but, nonetheless, you should refrain from cursing in front of corpses, especially if you live in Nevada and operate a funeral home.

Under Nev. Rev. Stat. § 642.480, it is unprofessional conduct for a funeral director to use "profane, indecent or obscene language in the presence of a dead human body."
