Sometimes when you're having a bad day, it's a useful exercise to consider all the people out there having a worse day. Meet 28-year-old Chava Stirn, who not only lived with her mother's skeletal remains for three years, but ate dinner with and slept next to the bones as well, the Post reports. Spooked law enforcement officials also told the tabloid that Stirn made a habit of wearing the same black outfit and shoes that her mother, Susie Rosenthal, was wearing when she died.

Stirn's horrifying living arrangement was found out only after the super of her Borough Park building tried to enter the apartment to investigate a leak on Monday. Police were called after Stirn refused to open the door, eventually knocking it down to reveal Stirn "in a chair, looking disheveled, surrounded by waist-high piles of trash."

Neighbors said no one ever entered or exited the apartment, but that strange sounds were not uncommon. Stirn was taken to Maimonides Medical Center for evaluation.
