Here's a ghost story just in time for Halloween!
My store's back entrance has a boundary line right behind an alley of a little bed and breakfast that has been around since the 1920's. It's changed owners several times and been remodeled. Currently, it's been sold again and the new owners are remodeling the place.
Now whenever I have to go to the dumpster at night to take out the garbage, it's pitch black except for a small overhead building light. From the corner of my eye, I see one of the windows in the rooms of the establishment is turned on, which is strange since construction only occurs during the day and ends around five.
The wiring has been removed and the owners have shut off everything when they leave and don't return until the following day.
I'm taking out the trash and hear weird noises like bangs and scratches coming from the building and the light turned on as I'm taking out the trash.
Then the light shuts off on its own. I'm so freaked out at this point that I dump the bags and race back inside the back entrance and shut the door.
It's not until later that locals share ghost stories of that particular hotel being haunted. That's it! I'm taking out the trash only during the day!
