    A newly appointed young preacher was contacted by the local funeral director to hold a graveside service at a small country cemetery.

    There was to be no funeral, just the committal, because the deceased had no family or friends left.

    The young pastor started early to the cemetery, but soon lost his way. After making several wrong turns, he finally arrived a half-hour late.

    The hearse was no where in sight, and the workmen were relaxing under a nearby tree, eating their lunches.

    The pastor went to the open grave and found that the vault lid was already in place. He took out his book and read the service.

    As he returned to his car, he overheard on of the workmen say, "Maybe we'd better tell him that's a septic tank."
