If you’ve always feared your mortality, then there may be no better advice than that of a mortician.
Lauren Eliza is a mortician and stay-at-home mom with over 489,000 TikTok followers. Eliza posts about what it’s like working at a funeral home and handling the deceased. Needless to say, Eliza knows a lot about death. Not only that, she knows a lot about how people die and end up in her care.
Spending years as a mortician has shaped some of her life choices. Eliza shared the things she’ll never do after being “scarred” by her profession.
“Things I will never do because I’m a mortician,” Eliza said. “Yes, I’m a little scared.”
Eliza claimed that in her line of work, she’s “picked up” people who have done a slew of things resulting in tragic deaths. So now she’ll never ride a motorcycle, saying, “please look twice for motorcycles” to prevent collisions.
Motorhomes or “big tin cans on wheels” were another nope for her, hang gliding — to which she said “just no” — skydiving and snow machines were other “death traps” Eliza chose to stay away from.
The haunting video received over 7.5 million views on TikTok.
“Didn’t know I could be actually more anxious about life,” someone commented.
