reflections in the TV

June 15, 2015

I was watching TV probably 3ish years ago. The TV had a small glare on it and I could kind of see the sunlight light from the hallway reflected on it. It was probably 2-3 in the afternoon. I was completely alone, the wife was at work.

I was watching tv and I noticed in the glare, the silhouette of a tall man stepped into view. I froze solid, and didn’t make any movement or noise, in fact if you were looking at me from behind, I would have appeared to remain in the exact same state. But somehow the silhouette of the man stopped right when I noticed it, lingered for a second, appeared to raise its arm and wave, and then stepped out of view.

I didn’t hear a door open/close, didn’t hear a window budge or break, or anything, and I didn’t find any evidence of anyone.

Probably just the light playing tricks on me.

in the closet

June 15, 2015

Had fallen asleep around 9pm and was awoken a little later by the sound of rumblings and glasses vibrating together, as I woke and lifted my head off the pillow I saw what I belived to be my girlfriends hands pull the walk in closet door shut as if she’d shut herself inside. I mumbled “What the fuck are you doing?” Just as I finished my sentence she walked through our bedroom door from the hallway. I remember feeling confused and asked her what the hell was going on., she told me there was an earthquake. Still weary I was all kinds of WTF? I eventually asked my other half “So who just went in the closet.” “Don’t say that!” I jumped off the bed and opened the closet door… nothing. Just a closet.

Honestly I’m by far very sceptical about supernatural happenings but I still to this day logically can’t explain what happened.

I creeped myself out by asking if maybe the earthquake happened to wake me up and stop whatever was about to happen to me, happen. Whatever was stood over me whilst i slept had to quickly escape. And I saw a glimpse of something I shouldn’t. shudders

the billionaire’s ghost

June 15, 2015

I used to babysit at this really nice house that was about a 30 minute drive from the nearest town. About 15 of those miles were on random gravel roads, so it was pretty isolated. A well-known billionaire in the community built the house when he started making his money. He was a really tough guy who basically put his business before his wife and family. Later on in life as his health was declining, he began to regret that. It was too late though, as he had burned bridges with most of his children. (I only know this because my dad employed his mentally challenged daughter, and had became close with his wife.)

Anyway, he died and I shit you not, he was haunting the house he built. I was at this house at least a couple times a week, and really freaky stuff started happening as soon as he died.

The dog, who was normally a pretty chill, refused to come inside for weeks and would just run around the house in a panic. He’d stand outside the window of an empty room and just bark and growl like crazy.

The 2yo started saying that he was scared all the time, and would get up in the middle of the night to check on his baby brother. He had never done that before.

There were two things that really scared me though. It was really late, probably 2am and the phone started ringing, but not in the normal way. Like it was a constant ring instead of a ring and then a pause. When I tried to answer it, there was just this clicking noise and as soon as I’d hang up they’d all start ringing again. The screen on the phone didn’t change either. It didn’t register that there was in an incoming call at all. It just kept displaying the time and number of misses calls. I had to go and manually turn the ringer volume off on each phone so it wouldn’t wake the boys up.

The second was, I heard something in the main living room and assumed that the older boy had woken up. As I was getting up to go check I heard a crash, and when I got there a tall vase holding some fake plants was on the ground and there was no one in the room. The boys were both in bed and the dog was asleep in the garage.

I know it kind of sounds ridiculous, but these things legit happened. Even if they didn’t though, the way I felt when I was in the house would have had me convinced that it was haunted. I have never felt so on edge in my life. Its like I couldn’t relax. I finally started having either my boyfriend or my (male) best friend come with me. They both felt the same way about it too.

Anyway, that’s the creepiest things that’s happened to me and why I totally believe in ghosts now.

someone to talk to

June 15, 2015

A few years ago, I was in a very dark place emotionally. I had these episodes where I would just lay in bed wanting to die. Sometimes, when I was alone, I would verbalize my feelings, cry out loud, etc. It was really pathetic but it made me feel better.

Creepiest thing happened during one of these episodes. I was laying on my bed in my pitch black bedroom. My husband was away for work for a month so I was feeling very alone and abandoned (not at all the case at the time but like I said, dark place). So I was saying things like, I wish I had someone to talk to, why am I always alone, etc.

I heard something start to move around in the corner of the room. Something big, like a person taking a few steps in place, floor creaking, shuffling. Instant terror.

The sound only stopped when I threw the blankets over my head and begged to be left alone.

I have no idea what it was and I don’t ever want to know but I am now very careful what I wish for.

“did it sound like a young male?”

June 15, 2015

I was living with my sister and her husband in Vegas. It was a one bedroom apartment on the top floor of a 3 story complex.

One day I was getting ready for work and called my sister because I was looking for nail clippers. Both my sister and her husband had already left for work so I called her and sled of she had any. She told me she had one on her dresser so I went to look for it and that’s when I heard a voice asking for help.

It was clear and sounded like a young Caucasian male (I am of Mexican decent and my brother in law is from south America ). So naturally I was confused and looked around. Again, it was a one bedroom apartment and it wasn’t very big so it would have been easy to spot an intruder. I didn’t see anyone so I went back to look for the clippers. There it is again, the male asking for help, “hello can you help me?” I ask who is there and he just ask for help again. I tell him sorry I can’t I have to go to work and that’s that.

Fast forward to the end of my shift and I’m home from work. I tell my sister about someone asking for help and she asks, “did it sound like a young male?” At first, I thought I had already told her and she was just repeating it to me. I ask if I had already told her and she says, “no, I’ve heard it too.” I think she’s trolling me so I don’t think much of it.

My brother in law comes home from work 30 minutes later. My sister then asks him “guess who crazyfox86 talked to today?” He turns pale and gets a stern loom on his face. “Did the young guy ask you for help?” Now I am freaked out because he had just walked in and immediately knew what had happend. My sister was watching tv and didn’t have her phone near her so there was no way she could have told him. Never heard anything else after that but it was freaky that they both had experienced the same thing before.

the messy bed

June 15, 2015

Definitely the weirdest thing was the night after my dog was put down. He wasn’t allowed on my parents bed, but sure enough when we left the room, he would jump up and mess with the covers. My dog was put down in the morning pretty suddenly so my mom didn’t get a chance to make her bed. When we got home after a bit of grieving, my mom started to do her daily chores and this included making the bed. I was in the room when she made the bed and it was perfect. We both left together and watched some TV with my dad and we were the only 3 in the house. After whatever we were watching was over, I saw my mom walk down the hallway and as soon as she saw her bed she screamed. The covers were the messiest they’ve ever been. This happened for a couple days right after and then just stopped. My family is completely convinced my dog’s ghost hung around for a few days after he died.

the uncle and the dog

June 15, 2015

My uncle used to kinda live with my family part-time; his own apartment was in Japan, but he’d spend practically every other month living with us in the US. He had his own bedroom at our house that he’d leave most of his stuff in so that he didn’t have to pack big suitcases every trip.

Well, he was very close with my dog and used to spend all day hanging out with her when my parents were at work and my brother and I at school. But since he routinely left for extended periods of time, my dog was used to his frequent, long absences and wouldn’t freak out if he didn’t show for a few weeks.

Unfortunately, during one visit, my uncle had a sudden heart attack in the middle of the night. He managed to wake up my parents so that they could take him to the hospital. When he got there, he underwent intense surgery that left him brain damaged and unable to leave the hospital. He was in there for over a month, but my dog was calm and clearly just thought he had gone back to Japan for a bit.

The night that he died was kind of sudden, and so it felt like any other night at first. My parents had gotten a call and left for the hospital, and I stayed at home with my friend and we played with my dog outside. Hours later, my parents called to tell me the news. My dog was in another room and the phone wasn’t even on speakerphone, but somehow she still just knew. She immediately started howling and crying, then ran down to my uncle’s room, dug through his closet, and started rubbing her face in all of his shirts while whimpering and hyperventilating. It was, simultaneously, the single most eerie and heart-wrenchingly touching thing I’ve ever experienced…
