When I was an obituary writer…

I lived for the death of all the biggies…
Like the time I had to rush out to the death watch of Lord Muck for the London Times. Lord Muck had a reputation for demanding punctuality… mainly of everybody else. He couldn’t care two hoots if a fifty pence rise in pensions didn’t get put through on time; didn’t give a fuck if contractors didn’t get paid on time; was decidedly jolly if tax returns didn’t get sent out on time. But other stuff…. where other people were serving him… they had to be on time or cop hell. So it was with great delight I received the commission to go to the hospice and interview him on his death bed. Love it when the grim reaper calls on the grandees; they might consider themselves great in life but, when the axe falls, a table waiter is no more dead than a peer of the realm.
Anyway… I couldn’t park near the hospice because of all the Rolls Royces and Bentleys and then I had to fight my way through a crowd of well-heeled parasites pretending to mourn for the fat autocrat.
“You’re a bit late,” he mumbled. “S’posed to be here half an hour ago.”
“Yes. Well, there were no car parks within cooee and…”
“You lower classes are always full of excuses. What are you doing with a car anyway? Public transport is good enough for the leftie likes of you, now get on with your job!”
My job was to listen to the drivel he spouted while he was supposed to be dying.  
I had been in there listening to his self-glorifying prattle for four hours when he caught me looking at my watch.
“What’s the matter with you? Do you have to be somewhere that’s more important than taking down my final words? Well???”
“It’s just that… well, the newspaper deadline is getting close.”
“Well… you should have thought about that when you were busy getting here late…!! Typical! Can’t get to your job on time, can’t get your work done on time.”
“You are right, Sir. From this moment on I am changing my ways. I will make that deadline!” And I shoved a pillow over his face and held it down until he stopped squirming.  Lost my notebook on the way back to the office but I made deadline with a picture and one line caption. Good, job;  now I’m thinking of reverting back to my old ways again.
