they choose the graveyard shift?
Do the cemetery workers choose the graveyard shift?
Kaisbro did a bunch of research and reported back
to headquarters with this summary:
Cemetery workers in England started
running out of places to bury people. They would dig up coffins
after so many years and reuse the graves. In reopening these
coffins, about 1 in 25 were found to have scratch marks on the
inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they
tied a string on the decease's wrist and led it through the coffin
lid and up through the ground and tied it to a bell. Someone would
have to sit out in the graveyard all night and listen for the bell.
'Graveyard shift' also refers to the practice of sitting there
overnight to guard against the grave robbers digging up the bodies!
brad added to the mystery with this thought:
no they don't choose the grave yard shift. it is a
known fact that ground is more moist at night which use to make it
easier to dig in, but now that we have machines to do the work they
can do it at any time
Casey finally concluded the discussion with this:
I have the belief that cemetery workers choose to
work the graveyard shift. Everyone has a choice in every move that
they make in their life. The cemetery workers are being proactive
because they are "choosing" to work the shift. Nobody can actually
make them work the shift if they don't want to do it.
