Funeral Home Workers Describe The Creepiest Thing That They've Witnessed On The Job
These real life descriptions of actual incidents by funeral home workers are scary and creepy. Get ready to experience some chills and extensive blood flow with a pinch of goosebumps on your skin.
So this guy narrates this incident where a dead body actually shivered in front of him. "I was filling out paperwork over one of the bodies while working late when it shuddered. Never saw that before or after, no explanation."
#9 When The Lights Worked By Themselves
What will your reaction be if the lights decide to work on their own on some random day? Specially if you are near a casket door? Spooky, right?
"I've only experienced something one time and that was around 10PM, after two years with no activity at the location. I had turned all the lights off in the chapel, and when I went to check the casket door, the lights turned back on. I was nowhere near the switch."
More such spooky stuff is waiting for you ahead...
#8 A Really Bad Luck
Some things cannot be explained. We talk about good luck and bad luck, believe it or no but this is one of them.
"I'm a funeral director/embalmer and I have seen... just so many bad funerals. One that really stood out was the time that a family released doves in a rural cemetery, after being told not to, and a hawk ripped one to pieces."
#7 Less Spooky More Heart Warming
Now this incident isn't very spooky. It tells us about the closeness of a dog and his master. Never heard something like this before.
"My mother worked in a funeral home. One day, she was asked to go up in the attic to look for some old records, and came across a baby coffin. She went to move it with her foot, and could tell it wasn't empty. Immediately went back downstairs and asked the director about it. Apparently it's a client's embalmed dog that's being stored until he dies, so that they can be buried together upon his death."
#6 Corpses Moan And Groan
If you are working on a dead body and it suddenly decides to moan or groan, you'll be scared, right? Well not so much!
"If corpses have a lungful of air, then moving them causes it to release. When the air travels through their throat, you get some minor vocalization, but it's usually just a liquidy gurgle. It still gets me sometimes, though, if I'm working alone."
#5 Lights Are Very Creepy
Lights can be really creepy sometimes. Specially if you are working with a dead body. Check this one out.
"I'm a nurse, and the only place I've ever seen the lights flicker is just outside the morgue. They are fine almost all of the time but when we bring a body down the lights always flicker. Really creeps me out."
#4 When A Dead Man Holds
We can't even imagine the chills in the body when a dead body holds you tightly while you are working on it. This man can.
"I used to work in tissue recovery. My least favorite part was prepping a donor for recovery, as it included shaving the arms/legs. Once, we had a donor who was very freshly deceased. I held his hand to shave his arm, and his fingers curled around my hand as rigor mortis set in.
That was exceptionally creepy."
#3 Story Of An Identical twins
Identical twins and dolls always scare me. There is something very weird about them in reference to spookiness. This incident might just not be spooky for you, but for me this is my worst nightmare.
"My mom works in the funeral business. Sometimes I would come to work with her and help her set up the chapel for a service. One service in particular was of a little boy who drowned. His parents dressed his identical twin brother in the same outfit as him for the funeral."
#2 Scary Old Woman
I am still trying to understand what this old woman was actually thinking before asking for this.
"I was a part-time funeral director's assistant. We once had an elderly woman with a glass eye who requested it be kept wide open for the service. Gave me a hell of a fright when I saw her in her casket."
#1 When Corpse Sits Up
Now this one is big. Be patient and read it completely.
"My neighbor awhile back before I moved was a mortician. One night he had a body he was preparing for a very early morning wake or service (whatever was going on, it was unusual, and it required him to work into the wee hours of the morning on this particular corpse).
So as he's working on it, he turned his back to grab some tools or supplies, and the angle he was standing at with regard to the corpse left the body visible just out of the corner of his eye. As he was looking down at whatever tools he was getting, in the corner of his eye he saw the body slowly start to sit up. His fight/flight instinct immediately kicked in, and he ran to the stairs as fast as he possibly could, but he was so clumsy trying to get up the stairs he tripped and was pretty much crawling and clawing his way to the top.
He was just near the top before his senses finally came back, and he knew it was rigor mortis. He collected himself and started to laugh at how absurd it all was. He had been doing this for 15 to 20 years at that point, and he had never had a freak out like that before where instinct overtook knowledge and experience. He actually sheepishly admitted he had to go clean himself because he had soiled his pants in the panic."
