I don’t think my current place of employment is haunted, but I really don’t know. I mean, on one hand I hear things from time to time that make me wonder, while on the other hand I haven’t felt anything there. So I just don’t know.
I mean, every now and then I’ll hear someone talk to me, only to discover nobody is there. And then I wonder if I had heard anybody speak at all. Things like that. For those of you who don’t know, I work at a pizza place.
Well, last night might have changed my mind. I got to work at 11 PM and clocked in. As I was doing that, out of the corner of my eye I saw someone walk from one wall to another. Where I saw it was where we stack our extra pizza boxes along the outside of our walk-in cooler. That’s where whoever it was started. Then they walked to the opposite wall, which is where our sinks are for doing dishes. Between me and the sinks is a wall, so whoever it was disappeared behind that wall, but there was nowhere for them to go except to the sinks.
On the computer where I clocked in I noticed there were only three other people there, and one had just left on a delivery. The other two I could see. Curiously I walked towards the sinks and I saw nobody was there. I then asked the manager on duty if anybody else was there and he said there wasn’t.
Later when the head boss came in, I was in the walk-in cooler with him telling him about it and he said it was creepy. I left and went to mop the floor, exactly where I had seen whatever I had seen. And while I was mopping I heard what sounded like someone knocking on a wall, or on the back door, or pounding on it… I’m not sure what the noise was, but I’ve heard it before and there’s nothing in the store that I know of that could make the noise. I don’t know if some kids were just being idiots and banging on the back door, so I’m not holding too much stock in the noise. But I know what I saw, and I swear I saw someone walk from the wall to the sinks.
Even later last night after I left work, I was driving up the road and had to quickly swerve out of the way, because a raccoon was SITTING in the middle of the lane I was driving in, facing me. As I swerved, he calmly stood and walked away, as if his job was done.
Last night was just a strange night.
