26 Night Shift Workers Share Their Spookiest Paranormal Stories

If you’re easily spooked, then you probably shouldn’t work the night shift. These Ask Reddit users learned that the hard way.

17. I heard a little girl’s ghost laughing

“I used to work nights in a domestic violence shelter. The shelter was originally a school. One night I heard a little girl laughing outside of the office. I got up and the girl turned around and ran down the hall. I really thought that she was one of the resident’s; from the back she looked just like her. Except she was wearing a strange layered nightgown. She ran past the room I assumed she was going to, into a living room space. I went in right behind and there was nobody in there.” — chicknlil

18. Shadow people appeared on our beach

“Worked overnights doing valet at a large hotel on the beach. 3rd floor always had ‘Shadow people.’ I guess there where even a few suicides in the parking garage even, which added an extra dose of creepy.” — ThatsA104
