This story happened to my step-dad. He is not particularly superstitious but it was scary for me to hear him tell this story. He thinks there might be a rational explanation for it. My step dad has two jobs; his second job is as a waiter at a local watering hole. He works the late shift and prefers to walk home in the wee hours of the morning (crazy).On the final corner on his way home is where it all takes place.
The first encounter was a couple of months ago. He was walking home and noticed a woman sitting on the corner wearing dark unidentifiable clothes, her hair pushed forward covering her face. He told me that he had seen her sitting there a couple of times, always in the same position, never moving. Then finally one night he walked across the road to the petrol station and called one of the attendants to come and see the woman... And of course by the time they returned, she was gone. He did another night and as soon as they returned, she would be gone. The attendant said that he should take his phone number and call him when he sees the woman again and not let her out of his sight. He hasn't seen her since.
He said that the next time he sees her he is going to ask if she is okay and if she needs help.
I DREAD TO THINK WHAT HER RESPONSE WILL BE!
