Would you be able to sleep in a bed that someone had died in?


I ask this question not to be morbid but due to a story I heard from a friend of mine. Her new daughter-in-law and husband stayed over night with people they knew while travelling back from abroad. But the daughter-in-law slept on the couch because a previous occupant of the house had died in the bed they had been given. Personally I find the idea a bit uncomfortable. I would always be thinking about how well the bed had been cleaned afterwards!!

    I would not insult my host by refusing to accept whatever she graciously offered to me.

    Yes, If that had been me - for hygiene purposes - I think I would have bought a new bed.

    LOL!!! What a fabulous answer!!! I hadn't thought about 'smudging' a corpse but I guess for some folks it wouldn't be a bad idea!!

    Yes - it's the mattress bit that makes me a bit uncomfortable - especially not knowing what the poor soul died with. The family they stayed with were very clean so I'm sure they probably put the linen out or at least washed it - hopefully!!

    Hi Alastar, that's interesting about hotels and inns and I'll need to ask Shirley (my friend) if her daughter-in-law has ever thought about this aspect of going on holiday? They holiday a lot and stay in some very old places!!

    I think many people do feel the same way so your not alone in this and it's understandable.

    I giggled too and can understand the whole stigma about the concept and I wish I could say it would not bug m me. But wow digging deep, let us just say if I ever was put in this situation I wish I could be the person that would not be freaked out.
