A few key points before I begin. The TV in my room doesn't have a remote so to shut it off and change the volume etc. You have to do it manually at the TV, and the power button requires a lot of pressure to respond.
With it being summer I don't really have a balanced sleeping schedule, so I stay up until all hours of the night doing whatever. I was watching a movie on my computer, and the television was still on. I was having trouble paying attention to the movie with the television on, so instead of getting up to turn off the TV I simply turned off the cable box with the cable remote, leaving the TV with a blank blue screen. It may have been 5 or 10 minutes later when I heard a click and the TV had shut off, and I heard footsteps walking out of my room. It took a moment to realize what had happened, and for a moment I thought we had power failure, until I realized that my light had never shut off, and my computer informs me when my computer is disconnected from the power supply, which it never did.
I paused the movie and got up to press the power button on the TV to see if it had come unplugged, or had broke. It turned on immediately, and the plug was fine. A few moments later I heard whispering outside my door thinking it was my parents I went out there, and they were both fast asleep. As I turned to go back into my room I heard "Turn that TV off".
This isn't the first encounter, but pretty much the only one worth telling, and I have a feeling its my grandmother, whom I've never met. I visit her grave and ask her to stop by, and she has taken me up on the offer several times. I know its short and pretty uneventful, but I hope you enjoyed.
Thanks for reading!
Also, is it normal for a spirit to be "stubborn". As in they would only communicate when they want to?
