I like to go on the IMDB boards to read and discuss stuff, and I stumbled onto a "Scary Real Life Moments" thread on a board. I thought it'd be fun, and scary, if we had our own.
Share your stories! I'll start (:
Not sure if this one's scary or not, but I'll tell it anyway.
A few years ago, maybe 2 or 3? It was in either my freshman or sophomore year of high school. I was hanging out after school with an old friend, another friend and her boyfriend. We were feeling adventurous so we decided to go look around this hospital that's supposedly haunted. It was an abandoned hospital that was for the army back then. My friend's boyfriend told us that he's already been there once, and that it was definitely haunted. Now, I already heard some stuff about the hospital, so I had to see it for myself. I heard that there's a cop that's always patrols the hospital, but when I went, there wasn't. When we got there, we found out the hospital was being fixed up, so I was kinda disappointed. There were construction workers everywhere also. Even so, we wanted to get in around the hospital and look around. There were fences around the hospital, so yeah. We found a spot and hopped over the fence, and just wandered around. There was an area somewhat away from the hospital that we found that wasn't fixed up yet, with small shelters/cabins(?). There was graffiti everywhere, and all the windows were broken. It was eerie, but we kept looking around. We were close to each other just in case anything weird happened. While we were exploring the area, we were making jokes saying that if we threw something into the cabin (honestly not sure what to call it, so cabin it is), it would come back out. So we threw a stick in there and just laughed. Then my friends went ahead walking and I just stood looking around. I looked into one of the cabin's windows, and saw a old woman's face. I screamed my head off and ran to my friends, and they were just looking at me like I was crazy. I told them what happened, and one of them didn't believe me. But my other friend said that if I was lying, I wouldn't have looked so horrified. We decided to leave because there was nothing else to look at anyway, and as we were walking back, I decided to look into the window again. There was just graffiti, so I'm not sure if what I saw was the graffiti... Or I don't know. But yeah. There's a bunch of creepy pictures of the hospital before it was fixed up, and if anyone wants to look at them, I'll link it.
This was really late at night/early in the morning, like 2-4AM? Aside from me, my brother was awake, and my grandma was getting ready to go to bed. My grandma was in her room, and my brother was at his computer. I was gonna wash up and go to bed also, so I went to the laundry room to get my clothes I dried. While I'm grabbing my clothes, I thought my brother walking to come up to me. My back is turned away from the entrance when I get clothes, by the way. I didn't necessarily hear a sound, but I got that feeling that I always get when someone to me in the laundry room. Like, I can feel their presence. I just kept grabbing my clothes 'cause I was expecting him to say something. But, he didn't say anything, and I felt the presence literally right behind me. I got a little paranoid, as I easily and always do, so I just stood and didn't turn around. I was just too scared to turn around because I had that feeling where I didn't feel... safe. Then my grandma comes from her room and says something to me. I felt relieved and turned around, and I went to check to see where my brother was. He was sitting at his computer area, and there's no way he could've gone back to his desk so quickly, since it's down the hall from the laundry room. I was pretty freaked out.
