hate to be the one who posts twice in a row but...

I was just wondering what everyone's opinions were on the social stigma of being a mortician. I just think it's odd that people think it's a creepy job, or in a lot of cases, to have this job/career, would make you a creepy person, but no one feels the same way about coroners. It's strange because both professions call for you to be spending a good chunk of your life with the dead, up close and personal.
I ask this because I've posed this question to my friends and most of them were quite open about the fact that they think that being a mortician is weird, but have never thought that way about a coroner.
