It’s Halloween, so let’s hear all of your tales about spooky experiences at work. Share within the remark part!

And to start out us off, listed here are some significantly creepy tales from previous years:

•  “At my final job I might usually work a number of hours previous the others, and previous darkish. There have been a number of instances the place I’d hear submitting cupboards opening downstairs, hear the printer randomly activate and begin whirring, and voices whispering. Typically the door can be unlocked once I was positive I’d locked it. Each time I believed another person had come again for one thing and each time, it was darkish and silent once I received downstairs to look. The voices have been the worst. Once you work in an industrial park you don’t anticipate to listen to speaking from exterior after hours. Place was in the midst of nowhere.

After all you possibly can make an argument for stress. I sat on the high of the steps in a creaky outdated constructing with my again to the stairwell, and I used to be overworked and drained. That stated, my boss/the proprietor did die in a tragic and unexplained airplane crash a pair months earlier than.”

•  “I work in a museum. There has all the time been a joke that the person the museum was named after haunted the place. Issues would go lacking and gadgets within the memento store can be moved. … When Housekeeping did a deep clear at night time, they all the time stated unusual stuff would occur. Sounds, voices, and so on. When the museum was renovated, we added a big-screen theater. There’s a management sales space with a small storage space on the high of the theater steps. There may be additionally a tiny balcony behind the management sales space the place we have now screens that face the primary corridor and that we use to promote upcoming occasions, memberships, and so on. Lots of the safety workers swear they’ve seen and/or skilled ghostly happenings within the management sales space/storage space/balcony. One actually giant, muscled ex-military man had such a daunting expertise that he refused to go within the theater. He was on rounds, checked the theater and heard sounds within the management sales space. He knew the AV man was off that day so he went up. He noticed nobody within the sales space or the storage space, so he was checking the balcony space. He stated somebody shoved him and he virtually fell off the balcony space. There was nobody within the theater apart from him however they checked the tape anyway. You might clearly see the second he was pushed ahead however you couldn’t see what pushed him ahead.

I keep away from the theater. If the most important safety guard within the place was virtually pushed off the balcony by invisible forces, I’m not chancing it.”

•  “I work in a nursing house with many people who’ve dementia. They stay in different realities, and I’m used to residents saying bizarre issues. Nevertheless, there appears to be a development in a single space of the constructing the place residents usually discuss with ‘the little boy’ who all the time appears to be standing someplace close to. It’s quite common for a resident to be speaking to the little boy (seem like they’re speaking to skinny air), and it’s additionally frequent for them to ask us questions concerning the boy (‘is that this your baby?’ or ‘is the little boy going to come back to the exercise too?’, and so on.). It’s solely in that one space of the constructing, but it surely’s with virtually all the residents who’ve dementia. Solely considered one of them has a historical past of getting visible hallucinations. It does creep me out a bit bit.”

•  “I labored at a spot the place once we renovated our workplace, they determined to switch all of the partitions with glass, to point out we have been a ‘clear group’ (as you’ll be able to in all probability guess, management there type of sucked). Whereas the upper ups had frosted glass workplaces, many of the workers had glass, fishbowl workplaces with no doorways. As you’ll be able to think about, all of us hated once we misplaced our partitions, significantly one man who routinely complained about it.

Effectively, a couple of months later this man is fired (for unrelated causes) within the worst approach doable, the place they did it midmorning, and everybody noticed it occur (laborious to cover issues in a glass workplace). So he needed to pack up all of his stuff and was escorted from the constructing.

The following day, the glass partitions of the fired man’s workplace shattered. Nobody was close to that workplace, nobody noticed something suspicious, and we labored in a safe workplace so individuals couldn’t are available with out us figuring out. We by no means came upon what occurred, however I wish to assume that fired man received his revenge.”
