20 of the Creepiest Things Witnessed by Cemetery Workers
Cemeteries are obviously very creepy places to those who don’t spend a lot of time in them — the sounds of echoes or a creaky gate are exponentially more terrifying when you’re surrounded by a bunch of decomposing bodies. Generally speaking, though, people who work in these “final” resting places are less freaked out by them. Hearing an odd whisper here and there is chalked up to being an occupational hazard, and the wind whistling through the trees is just that — wind whistling through trees. But every now and then, even those who are used to the environment can get a little spooked — like the retired gravedigger who heard his dead grade-school teacher talking to him.
To that end, Reddit’s gravediggers and cemetery workers have dug up some very ominous experiences they’ve had while on the job. A word to the wise: You might want to sleep with the light on after reading some of these spooky stories.
