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...

I was almost kidnapped by the cartel

I’m writing this as a memoir of what happened while it’s still fresh in my mind and to share it with all of the amazing people here at r/letsnotmeet. I’ve been reading all of you for almost a year now and I feel like I should share my story. I’ll have to leave some details out, for reasons you’ll...

I posted about a year ago about my guitar maybe saving my life. I think the same intruder came back.

Original post here, please read first for context: https://www.reddit.com/r/LetsNotMeet/comments/5pgc4v/my_guitar_potentially_saved_my_life/?ref=share&ref_source=link Okay. Since the first post, we have had cameras installed, no outside surface of our house except the roof isn't being recorded 24/7. Front door now has a keypad lock and the back door is the same, the standard toggle on the inside door knob. Anyway, just about 30 minutes ago I...

Creepy woman in a NY hotel

My fiancé, Will, and I stayed in upstate New York a couple of weeks ago for a mini getaway. The hotel was pretty dingy, but the price was right and they had smoking rooms. One night we had gotten back from dinner, around 11 pm, when Will decided he wanted a soda. The hotel didn’t have any elevators so...

Creepy Guy who Proposed to Me in High School

This particular encounter still freaks me out. I know how horrible it could have ended, and I sometimes thank my crippling social anxiety as well as general common sense for preventing the worst. My freshman year of high school, when I was about fourteen, proved challenging socially. Afraid to really connect with strangers, I would typically eat lunch by myself...
