By death bed - United States - Schaumburg
Today, I finished my shift at the nursing home. There was too much snow on the roads, so most of us had to stay overnight. Not only did I not get to go home, I also got stuck sleeping in the same bed that a resident had died in the night before. FML

#2, I read your comment a few times and I still could not understand the relevance of your comment. Why would OP need to practice her last words? She's not the one dead or dying

I think a fear for some people when sleeping in a bed that someone has died in is dying themselves. For others it's being haunted or something, for some it's just the spook factor... That's what I think the comment meant

I think sleeping in the bed of the newly dead would remind some of their own mortality.
One way of coping with that might be thinking up clever last words.

They also call it the "shift when everything happens"... I know a Cop who calls it the "Oh Shit" shift because a good portion of the calls he gets, the first words he says are "Oh shit"..
