THE LOUSY LIFE OF A BORING MAN

A story about the colorless funeral director Gerald. His business is going downhill because no one in his village dies anymore. His only hobby is playing trombone in the local brass band but the irritating conductor, who invariably calls him by the wrong name, wants him to stop playing. When Gerald accidentally hits one of the many elderly people with his car and is caught by the conductor, his lousy life unexpectedly takes a positive turn.
