An old man and woman were married for many years, even though they hated each other. When they had a confrontation, screaming and 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!
Neighbors feared and despised this mean man. He killed their pets if they got on his property, threatened to cut off their childrens fingers as they walked past his house. The old man liked the fact that he was feared. And finally, to everyone's relief, he died of a heart attack when he was 98.
His wife had a closed casket at the burial. After the burial, she went straight to the local bar where the wake began. As she ordered a drink. a few neighbors came up next to her.
Her neighbors, concerned for her safety, asked, 'Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way up and out of the grave and come back to haunt you for the rest of your life?' . . . . . . . .
The wife put down her drink and said, 'Let him dig. I had him buried face down.'
