So this story of mine is quite normal compared to the experiences of my co-workers in Ortigas. But being ignorant to the happenings on that place and experiencing it first hand sums up a frightening story.
It was a normal Monday afternoon in our office. About 2:30 PM and our office was busy with meetings, reports and other paperwork. There I was sitting at my cubicle finishing some paperwork and rushed reports, when suddenly I heard a low "psst" at my back. I quickly turned to where the "psst" came from but all of the people in my station at that time (there were 2 people in my station) were busy finishing their work. I decided that maybe it was one of my co-worker playing a trick on me so I quickly paid no attention to it and got back to my work. About 20 minutes have passed, another "psst" came from behind me. That time I didn't bother to turn around because in my mind, it must be one of my co-workers playing a trick on me. Soon I can hear a continuous "psst" from my back. I was getting irritated that's why I took my laptop and moved to the next table that is just besides mine.
I quickly plugged my laptop to the internet and continued my work. But after 30 minutes of finishing my report, I heard another "psst" and this time it didn't came from my back but instead it came from under the table where I was working. I pushed my chair so that I could see under my table but there's no one there. I stood up and asked my co-workers If they were the one who was creating the "psst" noise and if they heard it. They said that they weren't and that they didn't hear anything. I was really scared that time and I felt goosebumps all over my body.
I returned to my own table, submitted my report and went home early that afternoon. Turns out, I'm not the only one who experienced that. Some of my co-workers shared their story and they were more frightening than mine. Some of them would even run out from their own cubicle but some of them were already used to it that they don't mind anymore. Thanks for taking the time to read my story and more powers to YGS!
Argette - maybe you're right. The emotions are contributing to the happenings on a certain place.
Melda - funny coz that's what my mom also told me on what to do hehe. But I will definitely try it when I come back to the office.
Thank you 😊
