Blind Woman

The Blind Woman is a short humorous story about an old lady who keeps a memento of her dead husband.

Blind Woman

There was an old blind woman who owned a farm. Her husband had been sick for years and he eventually died. She cried for days and decided to chop off his finger to keep as a memento. As he lay in the coffin, she felt around for his middle finger, grabbed it and chopped it off with a knife. She wrapped the finger in a handkerchief and kept it in her pocket.

One night, the old blind woman was lying in bed when she heard footsteps downstairs. She recognized those footsteps. They sounded exactly like the footsteps of her dead husband. A shiver ran down her spine as she heard the footsteps walking up the stairs. She heard her bedroom door creak open and the smell of death filled the room.

Tremblingwith fear, the old blind woman said “Have you come back for your finger?”

She heard the ghostly voice of her dead husband reply, “That wasn’t my finger you chopped off!”

    Well, now he can’t use the middle finger in Heaven…! Or so she thought………

    …… Unfortunately I got this cause I have a lot of male cousins…….. Sounds like something they or my granda (grandfather, ‘da’ is father in Gaelic) would joke about………. But, I mean people stop freaking out! It’s just kinda disturbing, but think about it. BUT THIS IS A KIDS WEBSITE, COME ON!!! I thought of my grandma when I saw the pic.

    The first thing that pops into my mind after reading this is that she cut off his butt!!!!!!!(Not all of it but the……)

  8. I dont know if im dead says

    Wait, didn’t he have pants on when they placed him in the coffin? So it couldn’t have been the ” thing”.Plus, she was fumbling around for the finger, unless he was nude this theory makes no sense. It couldn’t have been his toe either, he probably had shoes on. Just stop being so dirty minded and try looking at the facts,you don’t burry someone naked so she couldn’t have cut it off!

    I never knew that some people make such a big deal over a simple word, how immature. . . — ____ —“

    sumtimes sfk copies like this story. they copied this frum scary stories to tell in the dark. but every1 does it =)

    Scaryforkids says: Sorry Yellow Dash, but that is not true… All of the stories in “Scary Stories to tell in the dark” are urban legends. The guy who wrote that book doesn’t own any of those stories. They are folktales that have been passed around for decades. Also, I made up this story, inspired by The Golden Arm which is an old folktale from the 1800s… Mark Twain even wrote a version of it.

    Due to my mind & brain, I instantly KNEW it wasn’t his finger. In fact, I knew exactly what she cut off. o-e
