A List of Strange Ghostly Happenings
Matthew, CA, USA
These stories are not all mine, but some are. Most of these stories are my mothers or mine. I shall divide these stories by which they happened two. Mine shall go first.
My grandma had just died not too long ago, and our life was quite hellish at the time. Well we were sitting around watching TV, and just talking (Me, My Mom, My Step Dad Jose) about my grandma, when the lamp shade on the lamp on the TV started spinning super fast. We were all freaked because it can't spin when the screw is on it, and it was. Later all of us were sitting around trying to figure out what had happened. Jose tried to pass it off as wind pressure, but it couldn't of been because the screw was on, and there is NO way that the wind could of turned the screw loose enough for the lamp shade to spin. Me, and my Mom had a hard time sleeping that night.
One afternoon when Jose was at work, and I was playing a video game on the computer in the living room I felt someone scratching my head (Like my grandmother used to do), and I thought it was my mother (even though I have to BEG her to do that) When all of a sudden it stopped, and I turned around to thank my mother, but no one was there, and then I freaked because I heard my mother in the other room talking on the phone!!! She swore it wasn't her. I was pretty freaked, but at the same time kind of comforted.
I was at my moms work (A nursing home for Old, and kind of crazy people) with her, and it was probably about 11:30 or so, and I was talking with Aurora (Moms friend), and she was telling me some ghost stories about the place, before she told me to go down to the salon and check it out since the ghost of a nun is supposed to be there. I agreed being the superstitious little freak that I am and went down the long hallway there, and looked around. I didn't see anything so I went to leave, before I turned around for no apparent reason to me and looked through the door window into the salon (Where they did the old ladies hair and stuff on Thursdays), and it was really dark, but I saw something that seemed even darker then the room itself MOVING inside. I being the coward I am sometimes ran like hell towards the nurse's station to where my mom and her friend were doing some paper work.
Story # 4.
At the time we were living at the same place that the lamp incident happened, and I NEVER EVER liked the long hallway separating the apartments, because I always felt like someone was watching me and I had to run for my life, and as always I always ran through (Which Jose got really mad at me for but understood when he found out about what happens later). Well one day when we were all ready to move out of that place and we met some inspectors who were taking pictures of the place, because the owner wanted to re-model. Later in the day we saw some of the guys talking to the Manager, and they showed up a photo of the hallway, and we were shocked to see there was A LOT of orbs floating around in the picture of the hallway.
Jose had stayed awake much later then us, and it was about 3 am or so, and he was bored so he decided to bug our dog (My grandmas dog before she died) and he was really making her angry, and teasing her and stuff when he thought he heard someone whisper: "Stop it!" Very freaked out he crawled into bed with my mom and cuddled up to her.
Jose was wide awake at night once again when he came into the bedroom, after getting a drink of water (after putting the baby in his crib) and he saw someone who (He described as how my grandma looked) looked like my grandma standing over the crib just looking at the baby. He crawled into bed with mom not the least bit frightened this time, but kind of spooked.
Jose was sitting on the couch watching TV at night when he thought he heard a little girl mumbling something that he couldn't quite understand. (This has happened a few times since then)
My mother's stories:
She was at Vermont Care center one day (Her job), when she walked into a room to check an old ladies charts, she was surprised to find the old lady looking at a chair, and talking as if someone was there. Mom simply looked at the old woman and said: "Hon who are you talking to?" The old woman simply replied: "Oh honey don't you see death sitting there?" Mom looked at the chair then to her and said: "Don't talk to him anymore okay?" The old lady nodded and mom left the room. My mom went to work two days later to find out the woman had passed away while she was gone.
Mother was at her med cart crossing off the names of the people she had given they're meds when she thought she saw this very nice dressed old man pass her by, but when she turned to say hi he was gone. Later she told one of the .C.N.As the story and she said that she had, had that happen to her many a time.
There were two really old, but sweet old ladies at her work. They always hung out, because one couldn't walk well and stayed in bed. The one that walked well always pulled up a chair beside her friend and they chatted for hours on end till the other lady fell asleep, until the one that could walk well died. Now this saddened the other lady as she much enjoyed her friends stays, But her friend didn't totally abandon her in death, because for a long time after her death when my mother would pass that room she would see a chair pulled out next to the old lady who was always asleep.
