I was told to hold our breath when walking by the graveyard.

The Heating and A/C supplier provided myself and others the name address where I had our next a/c repair.

When I looked at the address, I knew it looked familiar, however I couldn’t imagine why.

I knew the area pretty well, however this was an enigma to me. None of Heating and A/C techs started talking about an outdated wive’s tale they had heard about. They said the graveyard I was working near had been cursed. If you didn’t hold your breath while walking past the graveyard, the curse would steal some of your soul, and you would die early. I knew they were joking with me, however I had a Grandmother who believed in curses, and I never took them lightly. I hadn’t to park nearly a block away from the home where I was supposed to be working. I tried to hold our breath while walking past the graveyard, however I soon realized it wasn’t going to help me. The home was directly across the street from the graveyard. I talked to the owner of the home and showed myself and others where the a/c unit was. While working on the AC unit, the husband came out back and said he was glad I got there. Too numerous Heating and A/C workers and other repairmen had trouble coming to this area because of the graveyard. I asked if it was entirely cursed. He laughed and said he had lived in this home for twenty years and he had to even see a ghost. It made myself and others know better to hear this, and I suddenly got back to work. Although I heard what he said, I just wanted to get the AC unit repaired and get back in our service van.
