I hated working on donors. Now don't take this the wrong way, the actual 'gift' is very nice, but then we have to deal with the aftermath. When you are being procured, the Drs don't have much time, so they do a rather hasty job, and well you're dead anyway, so they don't have to worry about malpractice. Then they do a half-assed job of stitching you back up and leave in some needles for the hell of it, so I can find them will digging up your visera and almost cut myself.
And if you're a bone donor too - may the Goddess help you b/c I really let you have it. Most people don't know how we (as embalmers) have to be creative to make you look complete.
So as a human, I would say - Sign that Donor Card.
As an (Ex-) Embalmer, I would say - Are you nuts?
