Some people might think I'm crazy, but here goes:

I worked night shift laundry in a nursing home maybe twelve years ago. It was a sad place to work. Our residents died all the time, unfortunately, and stories about strange experiences were common among the employees. The month of January seemed to be when the death rate was highest.

Anyhow, one night I finished up my shift and started my car to go home. The feeling that somebody was in my back seat and watching me drive was incredibly strong. It was so strong, in fact, that twice I stopped on my way home to get out and check my back seat thoroughly for animals or something (or someone) else. I never found anything. I even felt like I knew which side of the back seat my watcher/mystery passenger was on (the passenger side). That feeling followed me all the way home. It was really, really creepy.

The next day, I learned that one of the residents, a man in the Special Care unit, had died maybe forty-five minutes before I finished my shift the previous night. I remain convinced to this day that I gave that old man a ride out of there that desolate winter night.

Creepy is right. I believe you though and don't think your crazy. It's the simple, plain, unembellished stories that ring true.

I once worked in a NAAFI (Navy Army Airforce Institutes) bar. The building was divided into 3 bar areas, the Lounge, the bar and the event space had the 'lower bar'. The event space was used a couple of times a week for bingo and also for daytime activities and also for disco's and entertainment. Both the Lounge and the bar were fine but some of the staff wouldn't work in the lower bar area as strange things would happen, more than once the gas for the beer taps would turn off, when we went to look each of the gas taps had actually been turned off and none of us had been into the cellar area which was kept locked. Another time the club secretary opened the door to her office and found literally hundreds of money bags all over the walls, attached to the ceiling ... everywhere. She came rushing up to the Lounge to tell someone and when they went back all the bags were on the floor.
Eventually we gave the ghost a name 'George' we got so used to strange things happening in the lower bar we would talk to him to see if we could ease the chaos.

I have never seen anything that would lead me to believe there are any. My staff feels the same way.

Just one more reason, I don't believe in ghosts.
So you're answer is no, then?

My restaurant is haunted. It wasn't until about 3 years ago, when the dishwasher died. We think that's who is haunting us

Until you actually have an experience for yourself, you won't ''believe''.

Then you may or may not care if no one believes what YOU saw! LOL

I personally believe, I just hope nothing paranormal ever happens to me! I'd be so terrified, I wouldn't know what to do. That's actually my main fear these days.

There's got to be some truth to ghosts & the paranormal. There's enough TV shows about them.
