35 Victims On The Creepiest, Gut-Twisting Thing They Have Seen Through Their Window

Think twice before looking out your window at night. You might end up like these poor souls from Ask Reddit.

1. I was sitting on my bed trying to ignore the texts my abusive ex was sending me. I was dating my now husband, and my ex didn’t take kindly to it. He was sending me text after text, switching between being apologetic and threatening me. I was sitting on bed. The headboard was against the window and I was leaning on it. Eventually I grab my phone and text back, telling him to stay the fuck away from me, when I hear his message tone go off right behind me. I, while shaking, open the curtain and he was right there in the bushes.

2. The Hat Man. I remember googling “shadow man with a hat” years later, because the memory was so vivid in my mind. But it was the form of a man wearing a broad brimmed hat but all in black, and I just remember seizing up when I saw him. Then I turned away for a second and when I looked back, he was gone.

3. A few years ago, (I forget how long.) I was reading a book when I saw what looked like an alien hand waving at me through my peripheral vision. But when I looked at it, I didn’t see anything unusual.
