I paid for a private cremation and was advised by the vet her ashes would be returned within 2 weeks at the latest.  I phoned to ask if her ashes had been returned but they said, no it would at least another week, 3 weeks since she was put to sleep.

I asked why the delay and was informed that the people that do the cremation are busy, she also advised they’re based 90 miles away through west so me collecting them wasn’t an option.

Has anyone had their pet cremated and if so, how long until you received their ashes?

Not sure if 3 weeks is reasonable but I’m feeling pretty peeved about it, also no idea why she has sent half way across the country.

Sorry to hear this. Gutted for you.

Thanks for kind words lads.

Finally got her ashes back, so good to get a wee bit closure.

It's not a word I would use (for fairly obvious reasons), and it's not a good look (Eek) but tbf to her the use of 'black' for dirty or clarty is one that exists in scottish dialect, anyway this girl is getting pelters for ultra racism off the back of a tweet. She might want to invest in a thesaurus tbh.

Weird one for the lassie to be greeting about racism mind while at the same time saying ''95% of white people are like this'' Monty Chuckle

Mainly heard it from folk who lived in ex mining communities, which ties in with it being based on people coming back from the mines covered in soot. I see folk shooting that one down as racist apologism though.

Black is a common word for dirty in Scotland. Just because people want to put a racist/sexist slant on every single thing said these days shouldn't deter people from using normal acceptable language.

Fucking despise cunts that go out their way to make other people look bad just because they know how fucking pathetic they are and they want to drag people down with them.

I've tried to get my head round this shite by reading her twitter and responses (and the TH commentary above) but FuckMe if any of it makes any sense! Who's being racist and who has had a go at typical scotch mining laddies, and who loves fucking black gangstas? Monty Ha

'Black' has been used to mean 'dirty' in Scotland for years. The girl probably didn't mean to be racist, but equally it's not hard to see why someone unfamiliar with Scottish colloquialisms would see the phrase 'black bastards' and assume the worst.

Obviously heard black to mean dirty but never heard it used like that. Mostly heard it to describe visible dirt, not the act of being a clarty cunt.

I would like to see if the folk she is talking about are black Eek

I’m not familiar with the way she used it. Obviously my ma would say you’re black when muddy after football etc but that seems to be a different tone.
