There is always an element of fear attached to death and dead bodies. As ordinary people, we don't often get to see a corpse closely. However, funeral workers have to deal with them on a daily basis. From embalming dead bodies to making funeral arrangements, they literally make money from death. They do a fantastic job, though. Some of their work experiences send chills down our spine. Read fifteen workplace stories of funeral workers that will scare the hell out of you.
13.This Unfortunate Incident

I have a sad one from a funeral director's perspective. Separated parents were mourning the loss of their toddler at the visitation before the funeral. The mom was grieving unlike any mother I've seen grieve over the loss of a child - almost fake. She proceeded to pick up the deceased child, "hide" him in her coat, and walked out the door when no one was looking. The other funeral director I work with found the mom running to her car where he stopped her and grabbed the kid. We found out two months later that the mother and her new boyfriend had physically abused the kid, causing its death.

14.Oh Man, Funeral Home Jobs are Creepy

A man was brought to us after lying dead in his garage for 3 weeks in the summertime. He was covered in bugs, his skin was black and green, and the flesh sloshed right off the bone. I couldn't do anything for that case, he was cremated.

15.Scary Again

We were prepping and washing the body of a 90 year old woman. One of her toenails fell off, and the hair on her head kept falling out. It took a good 3 hours to get her hair put back in one strand of hair at a time to make it look acceptable.
