I was maybe 10 years old at the time (I'm 66 now). The apartment we lived in was my parents and i had no brothers or sisters, it was what were known as the "railroad rooms". Basically, one long stretch with the various rooms along the way. One end was the living room, the opposite end the kitchen and bathroom.The bathroom was quite large and fairly square. In addition to the toilet and bath/shower, there was enough room for a clothes washer (my mom used a clothesline, so no dryer) plus a small room to keep the ironing board and in fact to do the ironing in.
They were only one window, which was directly opposite the toilet and it had a fire escape outside it. The window had Venetian blinds, which were always completely down/closed and the window was kept locked. So, I was sitting on the toilet doing what I had to do when, for no reason. I can remember, I looked at the window. One of the slats was raised on the left side (from my point of view) and a large, single eye was staring at me.
I froze, then screamed terrified by this. I kept screaming until my father broke thru the locked bathroom door. AT THAT INSTANT, the slat in the blind dropped. I clearly remember hearing the metallic "ting" sound it made when it did that.
I told my father what I'd seen. He went straight to the window and raised the blind - nothing to see. Checked the window - it was securely locked. He then began pointed it out while trying to calm me down, how could someone have lifted one of the slats of the blind with the window down, closed and locked? I didn't know and i still don't know. But I am sure - absolutely positive - that I saw what I've just described. I've only shared this one other time - at least a year ago, I think, on a site called Pararational. One or two people responded with, "Gee, that must have been scary" type of comments, but it seems that no one else has ever had a similar experience.
I just seen a post on here of someone else experiencing the sighting of a stick man you are not alone, here is my story, and i hope it encourages others to come forward an tell theirs.
A group of about ten of us were sitting chatting in the Loose Valley at about midnight. After about 45 minutes Will leapt to his feet slapping his head saying there was a bee in his hair; he looked absolutely terrified. Both Dorothy and I saw the outline of a tall, thin figure wearing a hat dancing behind him. Will said later it was if a terrifically loud buzzing was coming-up through the top of his head. However only Rachel heard any buzzing.
We partially satisfied ourselves that it must have been a bees’ nest, and so we moved a little distance away. As we moved away Dorothy and I saw a ring outlined in the grass which enclosed where we had been sitting. Eventually it started raining so we headed for Rachel’s house. As we left I turned around and saw the same thin black figure walk across the opening between the trees to where we had been sitting.
So we all think adding a ton of smart devices around our homes is a good thing right, you know like the latest T.V the latest phone on the market, well my family were always doing it, an we upgraded to smart bulbs an smart tv an blinds an pretty much a google home device in every room.
Everything seemed normal at first, about a week had past. We all got use to commanding the smart device, so we especially myself knew when an how they work. So the 1st night i noticed something wrong, am alone in bed 3:35am the lights glow on my google home mini, i instantly said "hey google" what or you listening for.
Accept i got no reply, i then asked "tell me the last command" the command was silent, couple more days had past i checked on my phone seen google had announced a few dodgy versions, so thought nothing more. Then again 3:15am the device says out loud "Humans" it scared the hell out of me as volume was 100%. Btw i do graphic design so sitting at my computer till the early hours is normal for me.
Next morning i moved the device to the other side of my room, asked the family if they've experienced it, "no" but luckily my uncle being a bit tech savvy shown us the history, an we all got freaked out. All the device's through out the house had been receiving unknown commands, between the early hours of 3am till 4:45am, one incident in my room google had responded to a question suppose to be asking "who are you"?
I've started unplugging mine, as they creep me out. Since then i have done a short search on google, an noticed i'm not the only one experiencing this weird behaviour.
Story from. Stacey
These guys have no doubt saved my life! Being a student i recently moved into my first apartment, after a few restless weeks sleep i had a terrifying night an was woken up being strangled by a ghostly figure of a women, I CANT STRESS ENOUGH I WAS SCEPTIC BEFORE THIS HAPPENED TO ME! So i got frightened enough to not want to sleep in their any more. Luckily i had very nice friends in the apartment block an they would let me chill their with them most nights, as it goes people in the block said something bad happened their a women was being abused by a man an they'd fight a lot but 1 night it went too far an the man had killed the women, the neighbours knew this due to police investigation an the forensic teams doing the clean up in the apartment the abusive bf is now in prison. But it was time i struck back being furious that am paying all the bills for the place, yet not feeling safe to even live their. Then i found these guys on the web, they came within just a couple of days, didn't ask any cash at all, they offered to do the camera an all that but i didn't want all that being done. As i just didn't want to be any where near the place after that nasty incident, so they opted for a seance to which they did do, how ever i wasn't present again being a coward, i stayed at my friends apartment a floor above, during that night they was electrical faults happening, as we were on the ps4 gaming, it had cut out our game play, within a few mins the power returned, but i went down to check on them with my neighbour an they was packing up an said its done. Walking into my apartment for the first time it actually felt warm and lifted can't really explain, but it was really a calmer atmosphere for sure... Yep an you guessed it, now my neighbours an friends or always crashing at my place now which is cool... sweet job what ever you guys did!!!
If you think some of these story's or scary or weird, you should read this! So me an my husband or in our 50's living on a terrace estate in Manchester, outside our home is a busy road but would get quiet at night. This one night in particular it was around 8pm and we got a knock at our door, to which my husband opened the door seeing a women in blue jeans an a short sleeved flowered top, he had asked if she was okay as she was shaking an looked cold. She was stumbling words but had asked if she could use our phone she has had a little accident in her car down the road and wanted to let her family know she was going to be late home. John had let her in the house, i got up out my chair an asked if she was okay too an said let me get you a hot drink to help with the shock she soon sat down on the sofa, constantly looking forward at our fire place. When asked if she wanted sugar in her tea she didn't speak but just turned and smiled. so i decided to put the cups of tea on a large tray an bring the bowl of sugar in with the cups of tea, by the time i placed the tray on the table they was blue flashing lights outside our house. So we presumed that it was the emergency services an told her oh look you might want to go out an speak to them. she still continued to look forward holding her arms as she sat? Puzzled by this me an John had gone to the door, in an attempt to call the ambulance crew members over to let them know she was here but as we reached the end of the garden we had a clear view that they was a body on the ground being given a breathing mask an being shocked by the handheld defibrillators which starts someone's heart when stopped by the crew, as we looked closer it was the women that had just entered our house, stunned by this we both looked at each other, chasing after one another back into the house. John raced in front to the living room an only the 3 cups of tea remained sat at the table the girl had vanished. To this day we both swear to god, this was a real experience and we didn't both imagine it and now we are very convinced they is a possible life after death.

I'm not entirely sure if this is okay to have on your true story's and comment page but here goes, you know when you or alone an you leave that crack in the door with not closing it fully or maybe when you're in bed an you notice you've left a gap in your curtains when you drawn them shut, i have been noticing a stretched head or face completely black as though it's outside the window looking in. I keep catching these in the corner of my eye, and like i said it's sometimes the same thing with my door just at the hinge i could catch a dark shadow pass or move an in corner of my eye again it would appear as though an elongated head is trying to peer into my room, well i use to just think it was my imagination or am tired as it's usually late at night when this happen's, it appears as though these beings have only tiny white dot's for eye's an u only get like a seconds glance at them, then as your eyes adjust which does not take very long, they will disappear. So i finally plucked up the courage to go an ask some friends of mine already thinking man this sounds weird, but i just had to see an funnily enough for the last 7 months in our neighbourhood, 5 other people i spoken to about it have had a similar experience? The closest research i have been able to do is bringing up shadow people but this does not match what we are all experiencing and having sighting's of, shame you guy's or in England. I'd love for an investigation to be done, hey i may even try my own an set up camera's. My only issue would be i'm not always up at the time i have been seeing them, so i don't really know how frequent they visit, we have house alarms and pet's yet they never get triggered. an like i said, i'd really like to believe this is just mind tricks or something but too many sightings, an you get a 6 sense when you know there around as you get that sudden feeling someone or something is watching you. thank's for reading people. Please message in to PVI and we can try and see how many people have had this experience an maybe they will look into it.
