The Graveyard Wager

While researching for the forum I came across a group of Classic Urban Legends Heres one of them.

The Graveyard Wager


A group of young girls were having a slumber party one night and began
to exchange ghost stories. One girl claimed that the old man who had
been buried earlier that week in the graveyard down the street had been
buried alive. She claimed that if you tried, you could hear him still
scratching at the lid of his coffin.
The other girls called her bluff
and told her that she wouldn’t do it. They said she was too afraid to
go down there to the grave that very night. They continued to challenge
her and eventually she gave into the peer pressure and accepted their
challenge. Since she was going to go alone, she needed to prove to the
others that she actually followed through with the task. She was
supposed to take a stake with her and drive it into the ground so the
next day the girls would know that she had been to the grave.

She headed off to the gravesite, stake in hand, and never returned. The
other girls assumed she had "chickened out" and had just gone home
ashamed.

The next morning as they passed the graveyard they saw her there at
the old man's grave. She had accidentally staked her nightshirt to the
ground and when she tried to run from the grave and couldn’t, she died
of fright.
