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.

25. Someone pulled the alarm in an empty building

“Sometime around midnight, the fire alarm was physically pulled within the building. It was locked and alarmed but somehow something pulled the alarm. There was no way to break in as the windows weren’t even large enough to get a leg through. It was really bizarre. Footsteps on the upper floor while the structure was empty were also common.” — DarthPun

26. I heard noises and saw shadows all night long

“I work night shift in psych. I have heard talking when everyone is asleep, footsteps, knocks on doors where nobody should even be, bathroom lights going off as I walk by (both patients were asleep), as well as seeing shadows every now and again. We had a nurse who was doing checks and felt something tug on her shirt.” — Umbra12 TC mark
