This story happened back when I was about 12 and I am a male.
It was a warm summer afternoon and my mom and I decided to go grocery shopping. As we entered the store, I took notice of a man, wearing a yellow button down, khaki pants, and bright white hair. He must of been at least 50. He stood out to me because he had a wide smile and was staring directly at me. I was always told to be nice to other people so I smiled back and shyly waved at him. His smile somehow got even wider and he waved back.
As we were shopping, I began to notice he was following us, about one car length behind us. He would occasionally grab stuff off the shelves and put it in his cart but still kept pace with us. It was very obvious that he was following us, going every aisle as we did. I was growing increasing uncomfortable, especially whenever my mom would have me stay at the cart when she would get something from a nearby shelf.

I worked for the fast food industry for about 10 years give or take. I always chose to work mornings so I could get my work done then go home or spend time with my girlfriend. Working in the morning I never thought of anything scary or haunted, it was usually the customers that scared you most.
One day a co-worker which was my manager and I were hanging out at the front counter. The place was dead which was pretty normal about this time of day. We always died down after lunch and before school was out. Anyways her and I were talking and joking about work. I grabbed a towel and went out to wipe tables. It was not busy so might as well work to pass time. She was behind the counter and we heard a loud slam from the back of the store. We both froze and looked at each other. We were the only ones in the store.
So her and I went to the back just to see if maybe the back door was open and maybe someone was messing with us. No one was there I checked everywhere. The back door was locked and the alarm would have went off if someone had opened it. After we established no one was in the store the fear kinda set in for a second. If we were the only ones there then what was the slam? So we started closing doors to the equipment just to try and recreate the sound. I went to the microwave and opened the door and shut it I didn’t just barely do it either I really slammed it closed and both of us started freaking out. It was the exact sound we heard. I know loads of people would say well maybe wind closed it or a broom fell. Problem is we never kept the microwave door open there wasn’t enough room if it was. So something had to open it to close it.
Now I know that isn’t the most compelling or scary thing ever but at the moment knowing nothing could have a done it that could be logically explained made me start wondering I asked my general manager if she had ever heard or seen anything. She had a few little strange occurances but nothing that screamed haunted.
I no longer work for that place and from time to time think about that moment and wish I would have tried to make contact.
I am from a small town in Florida. I work at a Walmart super center as a day time cashier. I was on register four, the time was early afternoon. I had a man come through my line, I have so many customers through my line every day and I can’t remember exactly what person buys what. The man in front of me was a short man, I’m five foot. So he was maybe five, seven. He had short red hair and was heavy set. I said my usual greeting: “Hi how are you doing today.” He said he was good, then told me I was very beautiful. I told him thank you, when I was done scanning his items and he paid, I went to hand him his receipt. That’s when he grabbed me by the wrist very hard and got a scary look on his face. He started tugging me telling me he wanted to take me home with him. I snatched my wrist away and was ready to call my manager over when he bolted away. I later told my manager, and she laughed it off. I was scared and furious. I told our security about it the next day and had him watch the footage. We know who the man is, but for the sake of my story, I’m not going to give out the name. He is still out there, please be careful out there. I almost got kidnapped in front of a bunch of people at work.
I’m a 34 year old female from Washington State and this happened about a fewcyears ago.
At the time I was working for Babies R Us as a part time customer service person/cashier in a nice part of town. It’s important to note that this particular B R U had only set of doors to go in and out of the store, with the service area/register desk right in front of that. I should also state, I stand a whopping 5 foot 1 inch, and am soft as a raw egg. Not exactly the most intimidating person on the block but perfect for greeting people and setting first time parents at ease. I had also been there 2 years on top of a few years at a different location so I was not exactly wet behind the ears.
It was a typical busy Saturday morning during the holiday season. My fellow Service person (there were always at least 2 of us manning the Service Desk during season) and I were ringing people up, trying get credit card sign ups, keeping staff on time for breaks, etc. Suddenly I noticed a guy, in his twenties, right in front of the entrance/exit door and behind the Service desk just… pacing quickly back and forth and singing nonsense to himself. Queue the creep-meter ping immediately. Not that that’s enough to boot him, but I slowed down and began to keep an eye on things. The customers began to notice too, especially when he left and came back, and were clearly uncomfortable but so far he hadn’t done anything to warrant a manager. I was not about to engage this guy if I could help it, and my customers felt the same and kept the kids from doing so.

Okay so little bit of background, I am 23, female and from New Zealand I’m a dirty hippy and very spiritual. I was managing a handbag store in my town and had the odd weirdo come in which is fine because I feel that normal people are boring anyway. So one day I had this older lady who had very long grey hair come right up to my counter and she told me “you are very spiritual aren’t you, somethings telling me that you and your mum aren’t getting along but you should leave wherever you are living at the moment it’s very toxic for you.” I literally lost it I had never seen this lady in my life and she was bloody spot on, me and my mum are always bickering because I’m exactly like my dad and apparently “one Gary is enough” and I was living with a flat mate that was stealing my stuff spending my money and being a all round creep (she would cut my toenails for me and had a stash of them but that’s a story for another day) ANYWAY the grey lady and I had a decently long conversation about HER mum who she wasn’t close with who was dying and she got very emotional and I felt so sorry for her I gave her a hug and politely told her I really should get back to work. I would see her walking around the mall every day that I worked and I just thought maybe she had nothing else to do. She came in another day and pointed at my left hip. I had my exs initials tattooed there, and was three days away from getting it covered up. She pointed it and said whatever you are gonna put there , it can’t be what you are thinking it needs to be a rose. This was a bit weird cus I was kinda ashamed of the initial tattoo so none of my staff knew not even my parents or flatmate. She winked at me and left. The day came that I was going to get my tattoo I hadn’t really put much thought into what she said I just wanted a black heart to cover it and the tattoo artist brought a paper over to me that had a black heart and a black silhouette of a rose. I jumped back. And I said did someone ring you to change this? He was so confused he said nah I just had a funny feeling that this would be better than the heart. I got the rose tattoo. It was definitely weird but I’m very spur of the moment kind of gal and it was either meant to be or a crazy coincidence. The next time I saw grey lady I showed her my tattoo and she said “we thought you’d do it, we did think that you weren’t gonna listen” YES SHE SAID WE BUT SHE WAS ALWAYS ALONE I AM SPOOKED. There was quite a few instances when she’d come in and tell me little things that always ended up true , one day I had very very bad period cramps and I asked my staff if she could stay on so I could go home and die quietly in bed and she was happy too. I walked home cus it wasn’t far and sat on the couch with a blanket and dozed off. I woke up to my phone ringing and it was work of course I answered it straight away because I was the manager and I had to but it wasn’t my staff it was grey lady. She said she “ran here from her house because she knew I was in pain” I assured her that I’m okay and that I just have tummy cramps and she didn’t believe that was all that was wrong but again I assured her and said I’ll be back at work the next day and then we hung up. About half an hour later I rung work and said has she left and my staff said no she’s talking about how special and beautiful you are , I said do you think she can hear you and she said nah she’s at the other end of the store and I said “this is feking weird what even is happening” I ended up leaving the job and started studying thinking that was all over with grey lady and that she was either a stalker or just could read straight thru me. One of the days when I had finished class I walked out the door and nearly bumped into a lady … you guess it it was her. She “had a feeling I was gonna be here” she told me that her mum died and that her own health was on its way out too I haven’t seen her in a long while so I’m not sure if she’s alive but I’m sure if she is she will hunt me down no matter what.
