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

And to begin us off, listed here are some notably creepy tales from previous years:

•  “At my final job I’d 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. Generally the door could be unlocked after I was certain I’d locked it. Each time I assumed another person had come again for one thing and each time, it was darkish and silent after I received downstairs to look. The voices had been the worst. Once you work in an industrial park you don’t anticipate to listen to speaking from outdoors after hours. Place was in the midst of nowhere.

After all you could possibly make an argument for stress. I sat on the prime of the steps in a creaky outdated constructing with my again to the stairwell, and I used to be overworked and drained.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 aircraft 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 objects within the memento store could be moved. … When Housekeeping did a deep clear at night time, they all the time stated unusual stuff would occur. Sounds, voices, and so forth. When the museum was renovated, we added a big-screen theater. There’s a management sales space with a small storage space on the prime of the theater steps. There may be additionally a tiny balcony behind the management sales space the place now we have screens that face the principle corridor and that we use to promote upcoming occasions, memberships, and so forth. Most of the safety workers swear they’ve seen and/or skilled ghostly happenings within the management sales space/storage space/balcony. One actually massive, 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 nearly fell off the balcony space. There was nobody within the theater moreover him however they checked the tape anyway. You may 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 nearly 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 reside in different realities, and I’m used to residents saying bizarre issues. Nonetheless, there appears to be a pattern in a single space of the constructing the place residents sometimes check 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 (appear like they’re speaking to skinny air), and it’s additionally frequent for them to ask us questions in regards to the boy (‘is that this your youngster?’ or ‘is the little boy going to come back to the exercise too?’, and so forth.). It’s solely in that one space of the constructing, nevertheless it’s with nearly the entire residents who’ve dementia. Solely one in every of them has a historical past of getting visible hallucinations. It does creep me out a little 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 had been a ‘clear group’ (as you’ll be able to most likely guess, management there type of sucked). Whereas the upper ups had frosted glass places of work, many of the workers had glass, fishbowl places of work with no doorways. As you’ll be able to think about, all of us hated once we misplaced our partitions, notably one man who routinely complained about it.

Properly, just a few months later this man is fired (for unrelated causes) within the worst means potential, the place they did it midmorning, and everybody noticed it occur (arduous 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 in with out us realizing. We by no means discovered what occurred, however I prefer to assume that fired man received his revenge.”
