The firm I am currently working for is situated in an area full of history. The firm has been trading on these premises (farm) for the last +/- 60 years. I have been working for this firm for 12 years (8 years in this specific building) and have been experiencing some odd noises and events within this time period. I would like to know what the other readers think and probably give some sort of explanation to what is happening in this office.
My shift starts at 06h00 am every morning until 16h00 pm. The noises really freak me out as I am the first one at the office every morning. My office is located about 10 feet from the main entrance. I can certainly hear footsteps at the main entrance, very loud and very clear. It continues for about 5 seconds and then it's quiet. As if someone is walking into the building. This happens quite often. As soon as I hear these footsteps, I run as quickly as I can to see if someone is there. Surprise...nobody.
One morning, the same thing happened and I jumped up to see that was entering the office and I could hear these footsteps running down the passage towards the computer room. I looked towards the computer room until the footsteps were gone, there was no person in sight, but the running footsteps were so clear.
Every morning I can hear some sort of knocking noise on the dry-walling. At times it would sound like its close by and other times it would be as if someone is knocking on the door of the last office.
The footsteps and knocking noises stop at around 07h15. I cannot trace any other noises caused by anything else, because this is a farm and VERY VERY quiet so early in the morning. It must be some sort of a spirit or ghost... I think.
In the middle of the office building, we have our fax machine. We have windows between this area and the office next to it (you can actually see into the next office). Every morning when I go to the fax machine to sort the overnight faxes, I can feel a chill and get the feeling that I am not alone. Whenever I get this feeling, I don't look up into the windows, scared that I might see something I don't want to see. One morning I did actually see a movement behind me, a reflection I saw in the window. It was so quick that I was not able to identify anything specific. It's difficult to explain the exact feeling, but it's a clear message that means "Run, get away as quickly as possible".
One of the ladies in our office worked a bit late one night. As she was leaving the building and walking towards her vehicle, she looked back to make sure that she turned off the light. As she was looking towards the office, she saw the blinds move open on one side of the window, as if somebody was peeking through the window. Needless to say, she immediately left the premises a scared woman. She told us about it the very next morning.
Why is it that I get this feeling that I am not alone in the office at 06h00 in the morning? Why these footsteps (sometimes walking casually and sometimes running), the chilly hair-raising-you-are-not-alone feeling at the fax machine area?
The fact is, besides being a very old piece of land and being used as concentration camps in the very early 1900's, we also know for a fact that a man committed suicide in the building next door, but he did have a connection with our building and did a lot of work in our computer room. He was very upset the day when he committed suicide and also visited our building, to speak to someone, a few minutes before the incident. However, he could not find that person that day.
Do you think he is probably still looking for that person? I would really like to get as much views on this as possible and possible explanations. It's really uncomfortable so early in the morning, not knowing what exactly is going on. What can one do to let him know that the person he is looking for is no longer working here?
In my opinion, the noises and happenings must be from this guy. Nobody experienced any weird things before he committed suicide. It all started happening some time after his death. What is he still doing here? What does he want?
