1. When I got home the TV had a black screen with white text on the bottom that said ‘I’m not home.’

“I came home and all the lights were off and when I went into the bedroom the TV had a black screen with white text on the bottom (like subtitles) that said ‘I’m not home.’

Another time I was home alone and went into my bedroom and the TV had that static white snow with a black border on the sides.

Pretty sure my TV is haunted. I am kind of terrified of it.”

2. The man in the Plaid Shirt.

“Everyone who has lived in the house I grew up in for any length of time has seen the Man in the Plaid Shirt. Out of the corner of our eyes, usually once we’ve managed to forget about him, we see a man, reddish hair, beard, red and black plaid lumberjack shirt and blue jeans. We’ve only seen him downstairs, and he’s always walking to another room.

My mom and dad, and my girlfriend and I have all seen him on multiple occasions.”

3. Every night, without fail, there’d be this shadow in my doorway.

“OK, so I rented out this small building (think mother-in-law suite but a bit larger) in Florida for about a year. It was super old; the main house was over a hundred years old. It had upgrades, more buildings added and demolished, but this property had history to it.

Anyways, I lived out there alone. Weird things would happen from time to time, like my coffee maker being off when I’d left it on, my alarms being unplugged overnight, my shoes being on the other side of the room, etc. The creepiest was the shadow.

Every night, without fail, there’d be this shadow in my doorway. It scared the ever living shit out of me the first couple nights, but eventually, I realized it wasn’t going to come in any further.

Just to be safe though, I waited until my landlord and his family had left the property for the day, for privacy reasons, and sat down on my bed to talk to pretty much whatever was listening. I told it that I respected it’s right to be here, and I wouldn’t do anything to harm or hinder it. It was here first, and I’d be leaving soon anyways. I don’t mean to be a bother, but for the time being, you don’t mess with me and I won’t mess with you.

And what do you know, the shadow wasn’t there that night. I still stayed up because that honestly creeped me out even more, but I eventually went to bed and was fine. I never saw the shadow again, and my things stayed where I left them from then on.”
