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.

2. Something yanked on the door and slammed it shut

“I work in a big old psychiatric hospital. One night, I was pulled upstairs to work on the detox unit half way through my shift. Someone on staff has to go room to room and check on all the patients every 15 minutes to make sure they’re breathing, not in distress, etc. I had just gotten on the unit and wasn’t sure off hand which rooms were occupied, so I just walked by all of them.

One room had the bedroom lights off, but the bathroom lights were on and the bathroom door was cracked open just slightly. I knocked and gripped the door knob to open it. Something yanked on the door and slammed it shut. I heard something banging on the bathroom wall, like someone was punching it. I opened the door and no one was in there. One of the techs who had been there for 20+ years said she knows at least one person died in that room a number of years ago.

I’m not in the least bit superstitious or prone to believing in supernatural forces, but Fuck. That. Floor.” — Twiddly_twat
