This couple didn’t want a lot out of their afterlife, they just wanted a place to park. Apparently, Georgetown, where they lived, was plagued by parking problems, and this couple was sick of it. That is definitely something other city dwellers can relate to.
Or maybe they meant a place to park, not only literally but also figuratively. A place to leave their tired mortal shells once they were done with this life. In either case, we hope they have found the perfect parking spot and can remain there forever.
It is not a bad idea to take stock before the end of your life. This person clearly spent some time looking back and wasn’t afraid to admit that they had made some mistakes along the way. This joke isn’t just funny, it’s also relatable. We all make mistakes and we all end up in the hole, pun certainly intended.
You have to also give them extra points for not just excelling with their financial wordplay, but also literally having the headstone flush with the ground, making the entire sentence exist inside a hole.
A True Psychic
We’ve all heard the saying “it’s funny cause it’s true”. That is certainly the case here. No matter who we are or where we come from, eventually we are all going to die. George W. Jr. didn’t need to be a psychic to see this one coming.
However, we may not know the whole story. Maybe George had some inside information about the time or nature of his death and the people in his life simply dismissed it. In that case, George really did see the future, and we don’t blame him for rubbing it in everyone’s faces.
Location, Location, Location
They say that the most important thing in real estate is location. The view here can’t be beat, and the neighbors really are quiet, plus places with a reputation for being haunted are cheaper. Coming home at night, however, probably wouldn’t be too pleasant, and accommodations are definitely cramped.
It is not a stretch to think that the deceased in this case was a realtor, landlord or someone who dealt with property management. What a funny way to remember the life they spent helping people find their perfect home.
Telling It Like It Is
Although dying is a part of life, it is not always easy to accept. This person was clearly not happy about the end of the road arriving, but at least they accepted it, with a bit of a sarcastic smile.
It says a lot about a person that this is the only message they would leave on their headstone. They seem like someone who gets straight to the point and doesn’t sugarcoat things. They clearly have a sense of humor and they are probably not very old if this is the phrase they chose to describe their death.
