Voice On A Toy Phone on 2017-09-06

This happened when I was about five or six years old. My sister and I were in our bedroom one night, and I was playing with a toy phone. Just a little plastic thing. Might have even been my baby brother's. I said hello into the receiver and clearly heard a man's voice say hello back to me, right int...

Strange Man Kept Finding Me on 2017-07-31

It was mid-May of 1981. My father had died suddenly of a heart attack about two weeks prior. He died on the same day escrow closed on the first condo my husband and I had bought. I was in a store in Mountain View on my lunch break, buying a few things for our new home, after recently returning t...

GreekToMe, I hope you'll keep us updated. Your story is particularly fascinating to me, because you seem very level-headed and logical. These strange events have me completely stumped. And also have me on the edge of my seat!
GreektoMe, I'm no expert on paranormal things, but it sure sounds like something strange is going on in your home. The one thing that especially gave me the chills is the way the attachment to your mixer suddenly showed up on the counter. Do you have any information on the late owner of the house? I was just wondering if there was any way to find out from her children what her personality was like. For example, if she was a practical joker, or if her children had also had unexplained occurrences since she passed.

Thank you for sharing that very intriguing story.

Echosmithrocks, you and me both. 😊

I think it stayed in my memory for so long partly because I'm not generally prone to unexplained experiences, and partly because the voice was so clear in my ear. It's weird though, because I have no memory of how I felt the next day, or if I told my friends about it or anything.

Whodat, my mom told me years ago that one night when she was a child and her father was away traveling on business, that she sat up in the middle of the night and said, 'Yes, Daddy?' When her dad returned home, he told her that he had sat up in the middle of the night (while he was away) and called out her name.

I wonder if something similar happened with you and your dad?

Hi, youwillneverwalkalone...

What an interesting story. Certainly doesn't seem like it was a thief, given the height of the balcony (and the pouring rain).
Hopefully someone with more knowledge and insight into the paranormal might be able to explain it. Thank you for sharing that intriguing incident.

Thank you so much, Manafort1. That makes a lot of sense. Gives me an odd sort of comfort... Or closure, I guess.
Hi, SpookyCheesecake,

Very interesting story. Difficult to know if she was someone with possible mental or emotional troubles, or if it was a paranormal experience. The fact that she kept vanishing out of your sight and then reappearing is very intriguing. I would have been spooked too! Did you ever walk by the house that she came out of again?

What an intriguing story. I actually got chills when you said the head had slightly tilted downward. Also very interesting that Manafon1 mentioned that this kind of thing had been reported before. It's really baffling, and the only thing I can think to ask is if there was a possibility a sibling was playing a prank. Though it really sounds unlikely from what you describe.

In any case, I think the fact that you said it seemed normal... And didn't apparently cause you any fear... Would imply that whatever/whoever it might have been was benign.

Tunedin, though I have no idea if the girl was a spirit or not, it's interesting that she approached your mom asking where there was water, when it sounds like the water tap was clearly visible nearby. Maybe there was something about your mom that seemed gentle and approachable, and she wanted human interaction with her.
You've painted a very lovely picture of their encounter.
Cloudy, my older sister has mentioned her bed shaking too. Not often, but a few times. She would immediately turn on the radio, assuming it was a mild earthquake, and would even check the geological website online, only to find nothing at all, not even a tiny tremor. She doesn't have any pets and lives alone.
After she first told me about it, I went online and googled 'bed shaking for no reason' and was surprised at how many questions about it came up. Possible answers ranged from sleeping disorders, restless leg syndrome, paranormal, etc. I don't have any answers, but it seems you're not alone in this strange experience. I have to say that what concerns me the most is that you'd get a beating for going into your sister's room when you were scared and needing company. Breaks my heart.
Radish54, thank you. I'm not sure why it still nags at me so many years later. I guess partly because I couldn't put him into any specific category, like an apparition (though that would have been even more disturbing!) or a stalker, and 'coincidence' just doesn't quite fit either. Hindsight being what it is, I wish now I would have asked him who he was.
AugustaM, that is really odd. Much stranger than my experience, actually. If it weren't for the fact that your creeper was crass, I really would wonder if there was something paranormal about it. But still, what are the odds of him finding you a month later, several hundred miles away? This one gives me the chills!

Argette, thank you. I don't really know anything about men in black, but this guy just looked ordinary. Except for the faraway look in his eyes that seemed unusually serene.
Thank you, Limey and Anno_Domini...

Limey, he was dressed appropriately for the time, casually in jeans I think, but I can't remember if his clothing was exactly the same. He did say exactly the same words both times, and same intonation. And while he was completely flesh and blood, no blurriness or anything, there was a sort of 'other-worldly' look to his eyes. Not alien or anything like that; it's hard to describe. Almost 'knowing,' if that makes sense? And very serene.

Anno_Domini, I would have thought the same thing as you said, if it weren't for the second time (and if the second time I'd been in the same store as when I first saw him, which would have made me think he just hung out at the store randomly complimenting women).

It was just the weirdness of the second time that stuck with me, and the seeming impossibility of it being coincidence, because I basically couldn't have been in his sight when he purposefully pulled out of traffic. I also got some intuitive sense the second time that he realized it irritated me. Looking back, it seems weird to me that irritation was my first reaction and that the puzzlement came a few minutes later.
