The Grocery Store Ghost 2

 

After the incident described in part 1, I never experienced anything of that magnitude again. I did however have a few more experiences that left me wondering. There were plenty of times that you could hear inexplicable noises. There were the "classic crashes" when nothing had fell. The sound that made me scratch my head the most, was the sound of the front door being unlocked after closing.

One evening about two years ago when I got to work, I went straight to the boss's office to tell him that I had received a summons for jury duty. After talking about the summons for a few minutes I started to leave when the boss says, "Oh by the way why did you leave the shopping basket rack sitting in the middle of the floor last night..." I insisted that I didn't move the rack at all. He said that it wasn't a big deal, he figured I moved it to sweep under it and had forgot to put it back. I told him that if I had of moved it to sweep, that I would have moved it back when I mopped. It was then when we both realized, it had to have been Susie. Susie was our pet name for whatever was in the store.

The other two times that I saw something was through the monitor in the office, both times after closing. The first thing I saw was a large black mass standing in the first aisle. It watching my part-time kid mopping the floor. I saw it in the office monitor as I was counting up the register. I was keeping an eye on the kid. He was new and we weren't sure about his honesty. The mass had a vague human shape, although you couldn't make out any arms or legs. You could make out a head but no facial features. I stepped out to see if I could actually see it but I couldn't. When I stepped back in the office and looked at the monitor you couldn't see it anymore. I never said anything to the kid about it. I didn't want to have to finish mopping.

The second time was right about the same time period. I had closed up and was in the office counting up. I had a habit of keeping an eye on the monitor, especially when I was there alone. We had a four-way system and on the outside camera feed I noticed a large blue orb. Now I'm not one to put much stock in orbs because there are too many things they can be. This one was different. It was about the size of a volleyball and it was solid blue. It floated around as if it was hunting for something. It lasted a good two to three minutes and it was gone. It didn't fly away or get out of camera range, it just vanished.

I quit the store in October of 2007 and I just miss two things, all the kids I made friends with and "Susie..."

Dear community: Recently the author of this story has contacted us with the information that this entire scenario/s was a hoax perpetrated by the shop owner.
FRAWIN is and has been a very reputable part of the community and has expressed his sincere apology as he feels he has let us down. I think we should, in return, thank him for coming forward and letting us know.
These things happen, and it's unfortunate that there are still those who would make light of our belief in the paranormal in an attempt to make us appear crazy or dumb, or just to spoof us in order to get a laugh.
Thumbs up to you FRAWIN, and thank you for your honesty! ❤ ❤ ❤

Hello troyarn. I am glad you enjoy my stories. You know, the funny thing is I have enjoyed experiencing them, sure some of them scared me at the time but they have opened up an avenue that few people get to experience and for that I am thankful. Take Care.

Dad, I've decided that I'm going to stop reading your stories at night when I have to come home late. Schmoo should expect a visit at the station from me. I always did get a funny feeling in that store at night.

Hello FRAWIN and Buffy. Urrrrr... I mean SHAGGY and VELMA! 😆

How are ya'll? :P

Buffy AKA Velma~ I was thinking the same thing about the ACE part when I read it yesterday. I am pretty sure FRAWIN was just being nice because after all he is a gentleman! 😊
I'm sure you know that! Just making sure though! Ya' never know, right? You seem very intelligent so I guess I shouldn't have even said that!
Anyhow, are you going to open up an account on FRAPPR!.com with FRAWIN and I? Just so's we can talk about, well, whatever.

Well, talk at ya' later gator!

Hmmm, that would allow me to practice the talent of diverse rolls, would it not?

Uh, are you SURE they call you a smart ACE? A similar word has come to mind occasionally while reading your comments, but I do not think ace was it... 😆

Well... I guess you could be Moe if you really want to and I'll be Larry-the smart one. After all people use to call me a smart ace all the time... Or was it something else 😕 I can't remember 😆.

Hi WB, It's good to have you back. I never thought of it but the "blue" in G3's room could be an angel keeping a eye on him and the house. The orb I saw was the same color but was perfectly round. It would put you in mind of the orb on the wizard of oz that glenda traveled in.
I got the impression that the mass I saw was non-threatening,probably a former owner or worker. Sometimes I think that if I ever come back I'd probably be seen at the store too.
If you've read what me and Shelby was talking about-putting faces to our names you can see what I look like by clicking on my frappr link on my profile page. Shelby has put her picture on her profile page.

Well you can either be Larry or Shemp,we've got dibs on the other two 😆.

Hi Guys! THE FUN HAS ARRIVED!
Say, you know that video that Martin linked to his comment? That is the blue light that I keep asking about in my four year old's room up in the corner by the ceiling. I hear the folks on the youtube saying they thought it was an angel. Could that be what is in his room?
I think the black mass was helping you keep an eye on the newbie too. Maybe it was keeping an eye on what it still feels is it's investments also. Nice to know we have extra eyes when we need them, is it not?

Ok, by process of elimination, I have to be the brainiac AND Larry? I guess the "Larry" could fly as it closely resembles a given name of mine, but the BRANIAC? I have NEVER been accused of being brilliant 😆!

Shaggy, I was only kidding you, honestly! Also, you did get the darker color of the brown part of my hair correct, on top of the natural blonde highlights. 😉 Pretty good! Naturally it is a light-brown with blonde highlights.

I don't know if it is me being tired, but I didn't even think of Buffy's email. I didn't get much sleep last night so I am really tired. With four kids I can't a break nor a nap! I should be going to bed now.

It really should be, MUSTANG AKA SHELBY AKA DAPNE AKA CURLY! That'll take the breath outta ya'! 😆

I figured we could either post on one of her stories or drop her an email,that's the only way that I know to.I'm not good enough with my ESP yet to get inside her head. Just hope she's just been too busy and not having any more problems with her "guests".

Hello Shelby, I'll go and see if I can figure out how to send invites, I use to know but I've not fooled wth it in a while.

No not in the slightest was I refering to you as a dumb blonde, hey I'm a blonde, that's like the pot calling the kettle black. 😆 It is just sometimes I can close my eyes and try to picture things and a lot of times what I picture is correct. When I tried to imagine what you looked liked I pictured you with either blonde or brownish colored hair. I got your face pretty close but I missed the hair.
My Dad always told me that the best way for an homely guy to look good is to surround himself with good looking people. I think I have acheived success 😊.

By the way, how are we going to check on Buffy AKA Velma unless we post a comment asking "what's up?", on one of her stories? Unless that is what you meant!

Hey, so, I DID sign up on FRAPPER!, BUT, for some reason I have difficulties requesting you to add me to your friend list. Hmmm... 😕 Who knows!

By the way I dye my hair darker like that for change. My natural hair color is dirty blonde. Anyhow, why did you ask that? I certainly hope it's not that you think I am that 'steriotypical dumba** airhead"! I certainly don't think so. I don't think you think that, but ya' know a gal must ask. 😊

Hello Shelby, Yes I did and now we all have a face to put with our names. Although you don't look like I imagined(for some reason I pictured you as blonde- no offense), you are a beautiful young lady. I don't go to that site very often but since you signed up I'll keep closer watch. Maybe if Buffy signs on too we'll have a place for our crazy conversations that don't quite fit in here. Speaking of Buffy I've not seen her here for 2 or 3 days-hope nothing has flared back up. If she don't show in a few days we'll check on her.

FRAWIN-MOE-SHAGGY 😊 ❤

Hi Shaggy! I was able to get it now! Your ugly mug? What are you speaking of? You are a handsome gentleman if I do say so myself. And I do! Hey, I went ahead and signed up to this site(FRAPPR!) so I could communicate with you by other means and so you would add me to your friends. 😊 How often do you frequent this site anyhow?

So, as I asked before. Did you bother to see my picture on my prifile so's you know who you are speaking to?

Hey Shaggy! =P So did you put a face to my name? I tried to go under your site but to no avail. 😕 I could tell you how to post it, however, I had my, soon-to-be fifteen year old daughter do it for me because I was taking FOREVER and gave up. Sorry! If I find out how before someone tells you, then I will inturn advise you. 😊

Hey, what happened to Buffy? It's odd that she has skipped more than a day, if a day. I hope everything is alright.

Hey Shelby, if you want to know what I look like, go to my profile page and click on the link to my frappr site my ugly mug is on that page. If you can't access it tell me and I'll try to post my picture here. Someone will have to tell me how.

Hey FRAWIN. I added my picture to my profile if you are interested in seeing what I look like. I usually do not do this but what the hell. You, me and whitebuffalo are pretty close, atleast as close as a person can be over the net and I wanted you to see who you are talking to. You know, put a face to the name?! I know that you probably won't put your picture on here but I know what whitebuffalo looks like from her MySpace page and I would like to know what you lool like so I can put a face to the name. If you are uncomfortable doing that, that's perfectly fine, I totally understand.

Talk at ya' later!

Thank you Ohiowatha for your vote of confidence in my posts. I will wear it as a badge of honor, seeing how it came from our "Resident Skeptic". I find it hard enough dealing with the truth in paranormal events without having to deal with the embellishments, half-truths and outright lies. I have said it before and I will say it again:I will print the truth or nothing at all. Take care my friend.
