A Scare Before Worktime


I work in a cinema in Belfast Northern Ireland and this is my first entry, this account is 100% true

And I'm happy to answer any questions as well as listen to a few theories

I was coming into work for my morning cleaning shift, every night the supervisor sets the alarm so every morning when I come in I set it off and have to silence it with my own code,

This particular morning I came in the lights were out as usual. I went for the door but the alarm never went off. I found this strange but I continued turning on the lights. When I was finished opening the office area, I left the cinema and ran across the shopping mall to get a coffee. When I came back I realised that the light was out. I opened the door and the alarm went off almost giving me a heart attack. I keyed in my code and began trying to work out what happened. I was the only one in that day until 6pm and no one else had access to the office area. I also talked to staff later that night and no one was in that day I may have missed

1 year later and I am now a supervisor in the cinema.

about a week ago I was chatting to the security guards who told me that before this site was a shopping mall it was a lucozade factory and one of the guards back then was shot dead, also they say that I was not the only one who has had an unexplained experience in the mall apparently a pound stretchers worker stocked up their shelves for Christmas one year only to come in the next morning to find all the bottom shelf items neatly rowed on the floor.

I hope you enjoyed my experience, has anyone experienced anything similar?

iM A 14 YEAR OLD BOY and let me tell you, that I believe you 100%. I have paranormal experiances about three times a week just 2 days ago I was home alone and I heard a band, srry off topic. But I totally understand but since I have ghosts visit meh almost all the time I kind of have a connection with them. Let me tell you its definintly not an element spirit or one of those noise spirits that want to kill and stuff.

Its a new place so I don't think its faulty systems but your right logical explinations are there but knowing the place like I do I can't find any yet

Things like that happen all the time here, for instance, two lightbulbs blew yesterday and scared the living daylights out of me and the fire alarm went off tonight for nothing but I truly believe the council have done a really rubbish job of the wiring! Bit weird about the shelves though...

I didn't realize that it was his story. I was late and I was hurried. I missed that. My fault. I said all I wished to say about that individual and stand by it. Our mutual avoidance is a small miracle. Thank God for that.

I'm fallowing the same mind frame as Pjod. Could have slipped your mind, technical (problems with the alarm system), or other. Not trying to debunk your story but there could be logical explanation for all of your happenings.
Always look into the logical before labeling it paranormal.

sometimes, when we have a daily, morning routine, we can become a bit forgetful or careless in that routine. Could have been a slip of the mind, technical, or other.
