Can you imagine working in a funeral home? It's probably one of the creepiest jobs in the world. However, the peculiar experiences of these funeral home workers are even scarier!

“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.”

“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."

"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."

4. Identical Twin

“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.”

5. Creepy Lights

“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.”
