You can never be sure of your day. If you are on call a particular day and a family has had a death and need to meet with you, then any plans you might have had are thrown out the window. If you have plans for dinner or some other event with your family or friends, and get a call that a family has had a death and need to come in to make arrangements, then you have to decide if you want to meet with them to get your commission, or see if someone else can meet with them and then split the commission.
