Cutcut Vs. Holy Mary or What Cemetery do you use?

There is exclusiveness even in death.  It has been shared that in the Philippines, there are two types of people, the very rich and the very poor, and the very rich don't want to be mistaken for the very poor.  

Rev. Gaudario was talking to a lady about one of her family members
 that had been recently buried.  He asked where they had been buried, she told him Holy Mary, which is the exclusive cemetery, for the rich folks.  It is located in the Cutcut barrangay.  So, Rev. Gaudario said "Oh Yes,  I know where that is, that is in Cutcut."  She got a little testy, because there is also another cemetery for the poor folks, commonly known as Cutcut cemetery. She replied "No! Holy Mary." He may have again tried to clarify by saying "Yes in Cutcut Barrangay." but she would not be caught dead (argh) burying a relative there, so she said "No. Holy Mary!"

This is a grave in Holy Mary:

The more important question is not where your body will be buried, but where will your soul spend eternity?

Thanks for sharing that.
