These stories are bringing back memories of things I've almost forgotten!
Who was calling Crazy Man?
Years ago, I had 2 roommates. One day, the phone rang and the gentleman (I use the term loosely) asked for the roommate in charge of the phone bill (it was in her name, we all just gave her money). He then proceed to rant and rave at her because someone from this number kept calling his house and hanging up and he was darn well sick and tired of it. He had caller ID and records to show the cops if this didn't stop.
She apologized and asked for more details (i.e. when the calls were made, etc.) He told her they were made at a time absolutely no one was in the house, we were all at work. We did have a roommate who was capable of being a total bacon fed knave, so we did some checking to make sure he or one of his friends weren't misbehaving. According to our itemized phone bill, this person's number was never called from our phone. At any time, day or night. He called a few more times threatening to sue us for harassment but my roommate told him what we'd learned and if he called HER one more time, he'd be the one in trouble. I'm not sure if that was legally accurate but he never did call back.
But I wonder what that was all about?
Also, What Was That Smell?
I have this one listed in the Ghost Story thread. Basically, I came home from work one winter day and put my things in my bedroom. Which reeeeeeeeked of Eau de Very Cheap Perfume. It was nauseating. I started hunting around the room, thinking a bottle or something spilled. Nothing was found. I went to apologize to my roommates for the stench and discovered you could only smell it in my room. The very next day, the smell was completely gone. I found this weird because my sister broke a bottle of perfume in my dorm bathroom and though I scrubbed the tile down about 90,569,023,252 times, the smell was extremely overpowering for a couple of weeks and you could smell it all the way down the hall. We did ask my landlord who lived below us but he knew nothing about it.
