A night at the bar

About 20 years ago girl that I have known for a long time, and that I felt I could trust, asked me to fo out to a bar with her one night. I was hesitant to because I am not much of a drinker and the bar seen was not for me.

I was a new mother and wife at the time, so I discussed it with my husband whom felt I should go hang out with this friend, knowing she recently split with her boyfriend and was understandably upset about it.

So just to appease my friend and be supportive I decided to go with her to a bar. She came over that night to pick me up. Not everyone had a cellphone back then including me, and my husband was insisting that I take his cellphone in case of an emergency.

old frıend

Here goes my first story that happened 2 years ago when I came to another city for university.When I was 9 years old I was eating dinner with my family.My father is a police officer and he always come home late and thats why we eat dinner so late.Anyway I was not hungry but I sat down with my family anyway.While we were eating the electricity went off.I was not afraid because this happens all the time in the town we were staying.My father went to check the fuse box to see something is wrong.My mother told me to not worry the electricity will be back.I don’t remember the reason but I went to the room next to our kitchen to look from the window to see if the electricity only cut out in our home.Whole town’s electricity went off.I returned to kitchen and sat down.Then I heard my father said “Can you bring me a screwdriver son ?”

I tried to find my way to the room we stash equipments.I tried to blindly find the screwdriver in the box.I found it and started walking to our long corridor to give it to my father.I was walking slowly because I don’t want to be fall.While walking I saw a pitch black siluette in the room right side of the corridor.I mean it was already dark but this siluette looked even darker in the room.I thought my mind is playing tricks on me so I didn’t care.I found my father and gave the screwdriver to him.He said “Okay go back to your mother” I said okay and started walking again.This time I feel something behind my ear and it said “Don’t be afraid.I am your friend.”

I started screaming loudly because the sound was exactly my father’s voice and I pass out.While I came to senses the electricity were back.My mother was looking at me asking me questions about what happened I told her what happened and she said “You are always like this,telling stories and scaring us”

Knocking around on Christmas

This is a short but creepy story.

I’m from Mississippi and it is December as I’m writing this story. I’m 27 years old and I currently live with my parents. Yes, I know what your thinking but it is tough times trying to find a decent job. Anyway, this happen quite recently. As we all know during the Christmas season, it’s the perfect time for robbers to try to break into your homes. There are always alot of crime around the holiday season. I always thought that kind of thing only happens to people with nice houses. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Our home is pretty average brick house that can blend in with others. My Dad works for Norfolk Southern and he got called for a night shift job in New Orleans Louisiana. So my Mom and I are by ourselves this night. Anyway, let me get on with the subject.

It was around 1 am in the morning and I was staying up late watching Fred Claus when my Mom walk out of her room and told me that our neighbors just called. A group of strange men was asking them for money to get gas for their truck. They said they were from Illinois which is odd since Mississippi is far from the Midwest. They told them that they better leave or they’ll be shot. Eventually the group of guys left their house. Our neighbors demanded that we call 911 in case they tried to do this again.

At this point, my mother was freaking out when all of a sudden we heard someone pulling in our driveway. It was the same group of strange men that tried to break in our neighbors home. My mother was shaking as she peaked through the blinds. He was a middle to short white man at our side screen door. The other guys were sitting inside a red pick up truck waiting for him. My mom decided to use her car alarm to scare the man away. She pressed the button on her keychain and the car started flashing. At first, the man was looking around at the guys in the truck. They must have told him to forget the house cause he left right away. When my Mom peak through the blinds again, she saw the guy going back into the truck and drove off down the road.

“thing” in the woods

I will not show my real name as I am already being hunted. I will go by the name of Ben.

This “strange” thing began happening in the summer of 2015 when I had just finished 8th grade and went on a party trip to camp in the woods in the back of my house in Alabama the party was a classic teenagers party, some kids brought beer, others brought whatever crap could be deadly in some way like butterfly knives and stuff it was with my friends “Eric” and “Kyle” (NOT THEIR REAL NAMES) we decided we didn’t want to be involved in all of that weird stuff so we went away from the party site when we decided to head into the more quiet part of the woods. There we saw him.

He was at least 7 or 8 feet tall and he wasn’t a “he” … it was an “IT”. we first saw him when Eric had to take a leak behind a tree just then the leaves crunching like 20 ton bear was walking over them. It was like a kid trying to play the drums by hitting them very hard. Me and Kyle looked at each other… “we either get Eric or scram” we both thought just then Eric who had finished taking a leak whispered “what is it?” I responded with “its not a human or any animal” Kyle said “maybe a bear standing up” but there was no chance of that, that thing was taller than a bear. and it had the shades of eyes but no mouth and just faint holes for a nose. It’s fingers where at least 5 inches long with shaggy weird gloves when it had said with a jagged yet “polite” voice, “hey, would you kids like some candy?” just then me and Kyle bolted, ran at the speed of light Eric however wanted to “greet” the man and said “hello, why are you here” then we heard the rough jagged voice saying “you will be a nice part of my collection.” after that Eric bolted himself too when we caught up almost to the party site I turned around to see this thing running. With its long slender feet it was fast catching up quickly when it got me.

Once he got a hold of me Eric turned around and threw sticks at it, yet that seemed like the wrong idea because even with just skin and bones he managed to pick my 143 pound body like I was a empty bottle and looked at me straight in the eye and i could see better, it’s eyes where barely noticeable, it just had black holes and its nose was like a snake something I can only describe as “Lord Voldemort” from the movie “Harry Potter” , and it had shaggy clothing that looked old and rotten from the 1940s or 1970s . Then Eric got more brave, he and Kyle ran at the thing with sticks and hit it in the legs and body, Kyle later told me “I hit that thing’s balls!”. then it finally let go and moved back to dodge the large sticks, that gave us enough time to bolt back to the party grounds where we were safe. Kyle told me when the party was getting better when we had forgotten that thing he saw that thing not far from the party area with a dude going over there towards it. that kids name was “James” (NOT REAL NAME) who was one of the “weird” kids and no one ever saw him or cared about him missing it just lead into “he moved away from town”.

Man in black at the mall

I never found myself attractive, I have a lot of insecurities but people would always tell me they thought I was cute. Maybe I was I just felt so bad about myself for some reason. I typically would go the mall with my friends on weekends to hang out, talk, and do some shopping. When I was in Macy’s trying on a bathing suit I had my friends give me their opinions on it. The way this worked was there was this room where you could wait for the person in the dressing room to come out and show you what the had on. The only people in the room were my friends and this man dressed in all black with his hoodie on. I found it kinda creepy as I am a paranoid person, but tried to brush it off. When I would come out and show my friend the bathing suites the man would look up every time to look. I found this especially creepy because I’m a 15 year old boy and this man was probably in his 50’s. Anyways I find one that I like so we all go up to pay because my friends have also found stuff they liked and I totally forgot about the man. Around lunchtime we went to a restaurant to eat lunch. We found a table and sat down, with my two friends across from me. I was checking my phone then something caught my eye so I looked up and saw the same man from the dressing room at a table maybe 50 feet away staring me down. I quickly looked away feeling awkward and decided not to tell my friends about it. After we finished I had to go pee really bad so I got up and went to use the bathroom. While in there the same man in all black entered and came right into the urinal next to the one I was in. I tried to get really close so he wouldn’t be able to look over and see anything because I saw his eyes drifting. I found this whole situation very creepy and unsettling. Then the man said to me “your a really attractive boy, do you have a girlfriend?” I was caught very off guard, so I finished and pulled my pants up and then replied politely said that I did not have a girlfriend which was true, but I should have told him I did… The man then said “oh that is excellent. are you into men? I could make you feel really good”. I was extremely creeped out and said “sorry I have to go my mom is expecting me” so I ran towards the door but he jumped in front of me and blocked the door. He then smiled at me so wide I didn’t think a person could smile so wide. His smile revealed yellow rotting teeth. I was so terrified I felt like I was going to pass out. The man started slowly walking towards me still smiling and kept telling me how he can make me feel so good. All I wanted to do was cry, he kept getting closer and closer so I started screaming, LOUD. The then ran at me and started pulling my pants down flipping me over so I was facing the wall. I seriously thought I was about to be raped, at 15 and a boy by a man. I was screaming and trying to escape when my friend ran in and realized the situation and called my other friend over as they both pushed the man off of me. I quickly pulled my pants back on and joined them getting the man to the ground. And we all were yelling at this point. Another man heard us and came into the bathroom to help us get this man to the ground. We eventually did and the man who helped happened to be a father of boys, and he called the police. I was so embarrassed after this had happened and stopped hanging out with those friends after this. All it takes is once occurrence to ruin everything. It pains me to think there are people out there who would do this, it makes me feel extremely sick. If my friend had not heard me scream for help I probably would have been raped and injured. It’s seriously awful what happened to me and I hope it happens to none of you, so please be safe. I’m sharing my experience as a learning one, no matter how old or young you are- always take someone in the bathroom with you especially if you keep seeing the same stranger person throughout your trip.

Simple McDonalds joke gone wrong

This happened to me around 6 months ago. I live in an average sized town with two McDonald’s locations in it and almost never go to them, but one night my friend and I were making “Mc” jokes which is were we add “Mc” to the begging of certain words to make each other laugh. It was later at night and we were feeling hungry so we decided to go one of the McDonald’s location. I am 16, a male, and 6 foot 2, and go to the gym regularly so I felt I could handle going to a McDonald’s further out in our town at maybe 2:00 AM. My friend, we’ll call her Ashley for the story- she is 5 feet and 3 inches, usually goes to the gym with me, so we’ve definitely had some creeps but nothing would have come close as to what happened tonight. So we get to the McDonald’s and there’s a sign saying the drive through is broken and we needed to park and order inside. The parking lot appeared to be empty, but maybe a minute after we arrived a rusty old Chevy van pulled into the parking lot and parked into the space right next to my car. I thought it to be odd when the whole parking lot was empty but I brushed it off and Ashely and I entered the McDonald’s. We were able to order quickly and sat down to eat and talk. While we were eating a man walked in who was very disheveled, dirty and older like maybe 50. He walked over to us and sat at the table right behind us, and my back was facing him so I couldn’t see what he was up to but Ashley was able to. The man just sat there apparently staring at Ashley and didn’t order any food at all. The cashier wasn’t even at the counter- he was in the back room I was assuming. Just as we were finishing up and throwing our trash away the man got up and walked over to the door and somewhat blocked it. The light switches to the store were rather close to the door for some reason and the man reached over and turned them all out which made the entire area completely pitch black. I got a huge adrenaline rush and quickly grabbed my phone to use the flashlight feature. When I turned on the flashlight the man was gone- me and Ashley both found this incredibly creepy so we rushed out to my car to head back home. When we exited the store the man was right up against the wall and grabbed Ashley before I could even think and surprisingly he was very strong and was able to over power Ashley. The back doors to the van were open and there was another man in there yelling at the man who had Ashley to hurry over and get her into their van. I ran at the man who had Ashley to break her free but the man in the van ran up to me and kicked my in the balls- I fell back in pain and both men grabbed Ashley as she was screaming at the top of her lungs, and they actually managed to get her in their van. I was trying to get up as a woman approached me out of nowhere asking me if I was okay and I told her I was and was in a hurry- I tired to get to my car but I was still in a lot of pain. She tried to give me a sort of hug but in the process grabbed onto my ass and told me I had a nice ass as I heard the click to a pocket knife open. Apparently this woman was with the men and wasn’t going to let me go after Ashley. Thankfully I was a lot bigger and quicker than the woman so in one swift motion I kicked her in the stomach and hit her arm causing her to fall and drop the knife. I ran to my car and drove in the direction the men went and called 911 on the way. I was incredibly scared and shaken up and felt I was in something straight from a horror movie. Things like this don’t happen in real life right? While I was talking to 911 they were able to identify the van because apparently these men were wanted by the police for rape, and sexual assault. The police were able to track them down based on the info I gave them and I was able to get Ashley back. Thankfully she wasn’t hurt too bad just scrapes, bruises, and really shaken up. After this incident Ashley was never really the same afterwards, she changed a lot, became more kept to herself and stopped going out and to the gym with me. What happened that night was truly horrific and I’m still shocked about everything that happened. I hope I never have to experience something so horrific ever again.

Grade 7 birthday party

Me and my friends were 12 years old the first time we got into a life threatening situation. We were at my friend Sebastian’s birthday party, he invited 5 other people and I knew all of them well, their names were Cooper, Jackson, Adam, Aidan and Brady. He lived really close to a school that we all went to and it was getting dark. We decided that it would be cool to play manhunt in the dark, we grabbed some flashlights and headed towards the school.

For those of you who don’t know manhunt is a game where one person is it and tries to tag the other players, the other players have to hide. It’s kind of a mixture between hide and seek and tag. The school courtyard was huge and as so there were plenty of hiding spots. All I could smell was cigarette smoke and this was odd knowing that it never smelt like this in the morning when we went to school. Maybe some teenagers decided to smoke on school here because it was a nicer area with trees all around the courtyard.

Anyways, I was it first, I had to count for two minutes, I thought that it was annoying that I had to count for two minutes which was forever as a kid but I did it anyway. Right after I had counted I heard rocks being kicked from the left of me near the kids playground. Automatically assuming it was one of my friends I turned around and ran towards where I thought I heard the rocks being kicked and checked all around the area but saw nobody. I found it weird but I quickly forgot about it after 20 minutes of looking finding nobody. That’s when I saw all of them, except for Cooper hiding outside the agreed boundaries that we made, I was annoyed and sprinted as fast as I could at them and tagged them. They we’re all laughing their heads off while I complained about how long it took to find them and how stupid I felt. They wanted to start another round after this but I told them that Cooper still wasn’t found

Scary police experience

My dad was working for the Minot police for 24 years until he retired after this event.

My dad and his co-worker were called to a red house on the corner of a 4th avenue, earlier a young woman in her late 20s called reporting a woman screaming bloody hell.

Before I continue, my dad told me this house hasn’t had a resident living there for 25 years so they marked this house abandon, my dad and his co-worker we will call him j walked up to the house and proceeded to open the door when the loudest blood curdling my dad has ever heard came from upstairs, my dad and j almost shitted themselves after hearing this, so they pulled there guns and proceeded to open the door, my dad discribed the house to have one staircase leading to upstairs and one basement, so my dad told j to go upstairs and he would search on the main level, j said he isn’t going upstairs without him, note both of these men were 6 foot and weighed close to 200 pounds, my dad agreed to go with j, as they started to walk up the narrow staircase they started to here scratching noises coming from upstairs, when they got to the last step again the scream came except this time it sounded like a goat getting its head nailed to a post, there was two rooms upstairs one was open and one was shut, my dad grew a pair so he proceeded to open the door, when he flung the door open there was no one in there, but he noticed that there was this red stuff pouring out of the closet, j and my dad where about to open the door when they heard laughter coming from the other room, they turned there backs to the closest when the scream came inches away from them, they ran out of the door and were down the stairs faster than lightning but the scariest part was my dad looked at the open room and there was a man in his late 50s chewing on a human arm, my dad said that it wasn’t fake because of the dead lady right next to him.

my dad and j called for the swat team to come and get this man, when they arrived they went in and got this man, when the man walked out he has one eye and he had human flesh hanging from his mouth.

Should Have Went Out of Service

I am a Paramedic in Wilmington, North Carolina. I have been working with my service since May 2017 but have been in EMS for almost three years now.

Wilmington is not all around the best for first responders, they will call for you, then treat you like shit once you arrive. Not all people but most.

This one night is the only time I have truthfully been scared and honestly feared for my life. It was 2255, I remember it because the truck I was on that night was going out of service at 2300, and another unit got a pre-alert (letting you know you’re about to get a call) at an intersection on a busy street.

The area I was in was the downtown area where there’s constantly traffic accidents or people sleeping on the sidewalks that tell you to fuck off when you ask whats going on, so I didn’t think anything of it.
