Emails your grieving family will be dead chuffed to receive
Here at Bitterwallet, we’re on top of all death-related consumer developments. Last week, we brought you news of a new type of urn, one custom-made to look just like the dead person whose ashes reside inside it. Jazzy.
Now, if you’re the person who plans to be inside one of those urns, you can address your loved ones from beyond the grave with a new service from a company called the Last Messages Club. They’ll store up to 100 emails that will be released to their intended recipients at dates decided by you before you peg it.
Just what you need – a 'happy birthday' email from your long-dead dad to knock you into shape as you stare blearily at your PC mourning the passing of another year. Not surprisingly, it ain’t free – the silver package is £45 while the gold option will set you back £190.
Of course, you could alternatively craft some hand-written letters marked ‘to be opened in the event of my death' and leave them in the care of a trusted individual. But what would be special about that? You’re far better off bashing out some emails on your computer and paying someone almost £200 for the pleasure of keeping them for you.
No wonder you’re dying soon. You’re weak you are mate.
