A man and a woman were married for many years, but they were not always happy. Whenever there was a confrontation, yelling could be heard deep into the night.
The old man would shout, “When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!”
Neighbours feared him, and the old man liked the fact that he was feared. To everyone’s relief, he died of a heart attack when he was 98 and his wife had a closed casket at the funeral.
After the burial, her neighbours, concerned for her safety, asked “Aren’t you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?”
The wife said, “Let him dig. I had him buried upside down and I know he won’t ask for directions”.
