I have no idea how I managed to miss this post, but I have spent the last three days reading it. I can add my own now.
I wish I had known about the evils of a Ouija board when "everyone" had one. My sister begged, and got one, probably late 70's. We "played" with it one time. It was her and I, and we asked it a question, and the thing you rest your fingers on moved to the 1st letter of the answer. We both accused the other of moving it, and when we realized neither of us moved it, she buried it in her closet, never to be brought out again.
For something more recent, the Wal-Mart I work in is haunted, particularly the area of the store where the photo lab is. Our lab equipment would break down for no reason, and then start back up. We all heard our names called at one time or another when no one was around.
One night, Mel and I were getting ready to shut down. I heard someone call my name, and I looked up, and around, and didn't see anyone. I looked at Mel, and all she said was, I heard it too.
Vanessa, who worked in wireless, was covering my break for me, and came in to get pictures for someone. She stood in there for a few minutes after, when she heard her name called. She looked around, and there was no one there. She wouldn't go back in the lab by herself after that.
Had an associate from the other part of the store transfer into the lab. We warned him about the spirits. He says to me, oh, there aren't any ghosts in here, I can feel them, and if there were ghosts, I would know. I said, I can feel them too, but you can only feel them if they want you too. He insisted he knew there were no ghosts.
A few weeks after he'd been in the lab, he closed by himself. The next morning, when I come in, he says to me, you were right. I said about what. The ghost he says. I started laughing at him. I said what happened?
"I was standing kind of bent over, and I heard someone call my name, and touch me. I stood up, and looked around, and no one was there. THe hair on the back of my neck stood up. *It* really freaked me out. I never felt *It* .
"I told you so." was what I said.
