Real Ghost Stories

Chilly, Silly Ghostie

 

I thought I'd submit one for the "workplace ghostie" thing we have going on. I honestly don't know if it's paranormal or not, but one thing's sure: it ain't normal!

At the time this event took place, I was the bakery/deli manager with a "major" grocery chain here in Las Vegas. Shortly after coming back to work from sick leave, I was transferred to a different store. A couple of my subordinates were able, over the next few weeks, to transfer with me. I had already told all of them some of my earlier experiences, and yeah, they thought I was crazy!

Well, one day we were extremely busy, and I love to be busy, as the day goes by so much faster. So, to attempt to keep everyone from stressing out, I try to be as lighthearted and jovial as possible. I was standing by a rack that had all of our stainless steel bowls and a few other things on it, when all of a sudden, they crashed to the floor. I said, "Wow! Maybe my ghosties followed me to work!" One of the girls just looked at me and said, "Oh, hell no!" We had a good laugh.

Soon after, I got a phone call from the person who was supposed to close the department that night. They were sick, and could not come in. Well, needless to say, everyone else who could have worked that night was already there, so I had to close.

I really suck at closing, even though I'm trained to know how. It's a dirty job, and I'm not alone in hating to do it. But, I think I did a pretty good job. And since I would be the first one in at 4:00 am, I could finish up the small stuff.

Our departments in this chain are set up with the walk-in cooler at one end, and the walk-in freezer at the other. After making sure that the doors were closed, I pushed our utility carts in front of the freezer door, turned off the lights and headed home.

I got to work at 4 the next morning. It was ad day and my list for price changes was on my desk, which was between the end of the work table and the freezer door. I moved the carts out of the way, got my paper work, and went to the cooler to pull out the dough that was to be baked off for the day. I went back to the end of the work table, and as I was prioritizing the changes to be made, I heard a click, like the freezer door. I quickly looked over, and the door swung open. These are huge, heavy doors that are not going to be moved by any thing except by pushing or pulling. I went to the door and peeked in, thinking that maybe one of the guys were trying to spook me but there was no one in there. I opened and closed the door a few times because the sound that the door made when it unlatched didn't sound the same as it does from the outside, so I went into the freezer and closed myself in. I pushed the emergency latch on the inside of the door. That was the sound I heard!

I couldn't help but think that my ghostie friend got stuck in the freezer the night before, and couldn't find its way out! I started laughing and said out loud, "Silly! You're a ghost! Why didn't you just walk THROUGH the door?"

granny! What a cool post (yes pun intended)
Personally I think your ghostie had over done it following you around all day and needed to chill out for a while (ok,sorry! Will stop the puns)
Bet she was upset with you locking her in over night,
Did you feel anyone giving you cold stares?
(oops slipped out lol)
Loved it granny as ever

Miracles, Fergie and clever: Thanks for reading!...I know it's not as exciting as some of the more recent stories, but I figured it would lighten the mood a little 😆...

granny - can you imagine the look on your ghostie's face when she realized she was locked in? Better yet, the look on her face when you asked her why she just didn't walk THROUGH the door? I say she because I swear that would be something I would do.

And the crown goes to... 😆

Hi all!...Thanks for reading...

Yeah, when that door swung open I have to admit, I was kind of waiting for one of the night crew guys to pop out, but that didn't happen 😆...The freezer was the last place I'd been the night before, as I was filling the tables to make the next morning a little easier for myself...

I think I should mention how I know for a fact the door was completely closed the night before for a couple of reasons...First: I closed it 😆, second: our cooler and freezer doors are set up with silent alarms that go to corporate, so if any cooler/freezer doors in the store are left open for more than a few minutes, they call the store and alert the manager...

Thanks to all! ❤

The ghost in the account I just submitted seems stymied by locked doors. I don't lock the bedroom door, it opens it sometime while I'm asleep. I lock it, and it can't figure out how to get in the room, which given our history, I'm not about to correct it like you did yours. 😜

I know that look your talking about granny... When we start talking about our ghosites to the non believers 😆...oh boy!...when the ears start burning and your not getting the invites to any Halloween party's granny, your staff at this point may be a little frighten of you 😆...interesting mate, those types of doors don't open themselves and I'm getting the impression your instincts are right about this one mate... Thanks for sharing... ❤

Talk about cold spots! This opens up a whole new line of speculation about the hidden life of ghosts.

Ha ha, a good one, had a nice laugh for a change. Wonder if he had to warm up first after the escape. But what did it look for in the freezer in the first place...?!
