We Saw A Face In The Window


This is my first actual perfectly visual experience as well as my first post here. My experience led me to Google which got me here, so I decided I will sign up and share. I'm 26 and the date it happened was 3-28-10 and it was dark around 9:00 pm. Me and my girlfriend made dinner and had no drinks so we decided to go get water from a water filling machine around the corner. I realized I was low on gas and went across the street for gas at the chevron gas station in vista ca.

I parked ready for gas and went in to get 2 Arizona green teas and pay for gas. As soon as I paid I then started walking out. As I was walking out about 4 feet in front of me was the pushing door right before I went to push open the door on the right side on the clear window I saw a "face". It looked almost like my girlfriend but mean and angry but I thought it was a woman on the outside of the window looking in and didn't think a thing. When I walked out I looked to the right and no one was there.

So I went and pumped the gas and got in the truck. Then my girlfriend said to me "did you see a face in the window". I swear I got chills! Then to make sure she wasn't messing with me I asked her where it was and what did it look like? She said "It was right above the coke boxes that are stacked and it was a women with black hair and just starring" and that's exactly what I saw but in my mind was thinking it looked like my girlfriend which to me it did but meaner looking.

She then told me she saw it starring at her then she smiled at it and looked down cuss it scared her and when she looked up it was gone and that's when I came out the door. The weird thing also is that when I seen it, it looked like it was staring at me! So that's the story does anyone have thoughts or any similar experiences?

That... Is really creepy. There's seems to be something about when an unknown entity smiles specifically at you that is makes your hackles rise. I just read the story, and it did that to me. Do you use this gas station occasionally or was this just a one time event? I'd be interested to know if anything else has happened or if one of the clerks has seen or felt anything. Has anything else happened regarding this face?

somthing like that happened to me when I was 10. I went to the kitchen to get a snack and saw a shadowy thing by the winow. I thought it was a cat or somthing so I went to pet it. When I reached my hand out there were just 2 eyes staring. Around the eyes was some foggy mist and they formed the shape of a face. I was so freaked out... I still hate being in the kitchen my myself! 😨

It was a timing, just nice she was there and the timing come, so you can saw it. If one day this thing happen again, you just quiet and walk way. And try don't let them know you saw them.

The window was probably a mirror of your gf's thoughts. I donno. Very interesting story.

Hey frmSTP it is strange that this type of thing happens on glass. It seems these things happen on any type of glass! Hi TessaLovee. Well to tell you the truth it was weird but not scary at all. I bet if it was in my room or house it would scare the crap out of me! But to answer your question yes I have had strange things happen to me before. I have several things I can mention but would take a lot of typing and time, so I will post another story. I will post 2 more stories one with a very scary experience and 1 with just random weird things that has happen to me in my life. Stay tuned and it will be up. 😊

Very interesting story. My husband and I had a similar experience although it wasn't with a face. In one of our nights in the hospital he went to turn off the TV. The TV was an older model which flashes before shutting off. As it flashed, there was an imprint of a hand. From where I was it was in the middle, but my husband saw the hand at the lower left corner of the TV. Interesting that two people saw the same thing but differently.

The window was acting like a mirror. And mirrors have some properties that allow one to see otherwise- 'cloaked' entities.

A jealous spirit.
