Don’t Drink Anything You Didn’t Open Yourself

More than a few years ago, I was working as a burlesque entertainer in a gentleman's club, and was idly sitting at the end of the bar one night when a couple came in...not unusual. I had no contact with them, and thought nothing of their being there---until later. A few days after that night, the doorman handed me a...

The Creep Who Gave My Mom PTSD

This story is about an event that happened to my mother around 1972 when she was 8 years old. Shes told me about it since i was young and she truly thinks about it and is affected to this day. To set the scene, both of my grandparents ran a restaurant/gas station in our home town. They have always ran...

Man From Nowhere.

This is an encounter from about 10 years ago, it took place in the Milwaukee, WI airport. I was nineteen, recently independent, discovering my identity. In doing so, I had found and developed a relationship on myspace, with a girl from North Carolina. I was infatuated.

Why I stopped taking the city bus to school

Well since I told you guys the story of my first creepy bus encounter, I figured I'd tell the story of my last one. So this time, I was in high school, freshman or sophomore so about 14 or 15 years old but still look much younger. I still rode the city bus to school because again, no school buses...

It started with the phone calls

My mom owns her own business and works extremely hard. This means she spends many late nights sitting on the living room floor with her work sprawled out around her. One night back in 2003 she had her typical routine going, sorting through paperwork and making piles. It was late, close to midnight on a Wednesday, so when the phone...

Don’t Trust The Ice Cream Man

Story time continued, in no particular order. All real, all strange, some horrifying. My friend and I, age 11-12, Summer, housing development in IL. My first Summer in my new home out in the sorta-sticks, my friend from school and I loved to run around the neighborhood and into the forest behind the homes. While we were out, we noticed an...

A maniac, a sports car, and a mistaken identity.

This happened to me about 6-7 months ago. It was definitely still warm outside. I'm a 26 year old female and I work in a bar, and I always had to close so I normally didn't actually walk out the door to head home until around 3:30 am. I didn't mind working those late hours most of the time...

When I almost got burned alive by a crazy guy in the woods.

About three years ago, I went on my first wildfire. I had just recently became a certified firefighter, and I finally got sent out on a two-week deployment. Without being too specific, let’s just say the fire was deep in North-Central Idaho. It had immensely steep mountains and ultra-dense forest. I didn’t really have any idea of what to...

My mom escaped the Hillside Strangler

This takes place in October 1977. When my mom was 16, she ran away from her abusive home along with her friend Lisa. They hitchhiked from Mass all the way to California. Obviously, this wasn't the brightest of plans. But given my mom's tumultuous home life and past experiences, she didn't see how it could be much more dangerous than...

Weird shit I’ve seen as a Marine

Growing up playing video games and watching war movies, I didn't think twice about joining the Marines so I could be in the infantry. I went through all of the training and unwelcome hardship that makes you really reconsider your decision. Anyway, I got stationed to a desert base known as 29 Palms - the largest piece of militarily...
