    Maintenance had keys and went inside my apartment. They went through the apartment. They almost entered my bedroom. I hide a knife in my room. I grabbed it and sat quietly. Then I yelled *Can you comeback later?* they agreed. When my mom came back, I told her. She told me maintenance doesn’t *have* keys. And we didn’t have an appointment for them. Biggest *wtf* moment ever.

      When I was 16 I once had a dream that this elderly woman, whom I don't recall ever meeting, died in what I assume was her home. Next day, my friend tells me her grandmother passed away in her sleep. Few days later when she started showing me pictures of them together, of fucking course this woman I never met but saw die in in those photos. On the brighter side, 7 months ago I had a dream that I was hanging out with my sister in her house and I was playing with her young child. My sister had no children at the time. Next day, my sister tells me she's pregnant. These are the more significant instances I can actually recall.

      I've had feelings of deja vu like my entire life, and usually it's just minor things that everyone might also experience, but it's just so unusually frequent. There have been times where my friends or family are giving me news, and I already knew what it was after they just LOOK at me. Even when there was literally no context to justify my guesses.

      Also in late middle school and early high school I went through a kinda weird phase of narcolepsy (kinda), when any day there was some kind of bad news I would just fall asleep in the middle of the day. And I was never one to nap, so it was pretty unusual when I started napping suddenly at such irregular times. It was only after a few times of all these naps being immediately followed by some tragedy that I noticed the pattern. It was like my body was reacting to the impending bad news by trying to sleep through it.

          And this is why i need my shotgun, magnum and ar-15 around my house. Loaded and ready to kill (turn an invader to chunks of meat incase of my shotgun). Seriously, more people need to have a shotgun lying around in their house for shit like this. Cant wait to see those anti-gun liberals being raped then tortured to death inside their own house by a serial rapist.

          The cops could take minutes to arrive. By then they couldve ejaculate, murder you and run away. Sometimes you gotta take matters into your own hand. Like blasting a rapist of this world with your shotgun.

          And to those whos gonna argue why i need 3 guns. Shotgun at my bedroom, magnum in the toilet and a cqb modded ar-15 with silencer so i dont wake up my neighbors if i use it in my living room.

          I have a story. It was several years ago and my dog and I were the only ones home at the time. Everyone else was out at the time and I was sitting at the dining room table on the computer. My dog was laying in the hallway in-between the bedrooms. It was a usual night until she started barking at what seemed like something in the bedroom at the end of the hall. I got up to tell her to settle down and she just looked at me then back at the bedroom. She waited until I returned to the table to start barking in exactly the same way. I decided to have a quick look but saw nothing in the room. I also want to add that I feel like she did see something. I know she did because whilst sitting at the table just before the barking, I saw what seemed like a shadow blur across the wall and out of my room towards the end of the hall. I dismissed it at the time because I was home alone, the lights in the hallway and bedrooms were off, and thought maybe my vision was playing tricks on me. But the way my dog barked made me believe that she had saw something.

            My house is generally very old but we thought nothing of it until a few weeks later of moving in. My mom had quite a lot of clothes and her entire shelf fell off holding them. Skip to a few days later and I was cleaning my room while jamming to music but my mind felt like I was in danger so while I was in the closet putting away a dress I got out and heard a loud crashing noise. My whole shelf fell off and a lot of stuff ended up broken, a few months later I had to go to a spinal doctor. Turns out I have a fragile and fractured injury in one of my vertebrae that could possibly be a few years old and it's so bad I've basically been exposing myself to paralysis and that shelf moment was one of those major moments.

                About 4 days ago I was in charge of watching my little brother (2) when suddenly I hear the side gate opening.

                My parents are in Tennessee, my grandma just sent me a text of something from the mall, and my other brother was at practice.

                I make a mad dash for my parents room down the hall upstairs where my brother takes his naps, taking my phone with me and locking the door, and calling the police.

                Not a minute later I hear a woman scream and my 80 pound bull terrier (basically a slab of muscle with the jaws of an alligator) going absolutely apeshit.

                The cops roll up. Apparently she was being chased on foot and decided to go to my garage to hide.

                I go downstairs after the cops call up to ask if someone is home.

                I give my little bro my phone to keep him busy, and close the door, and proceed downstairs to talk to the police.

                He takes me outside.

                My dog is being held down my 3 cops, and the lady is being handcuffed while someone is on the phone with paramedics.

                Her left leg was practically nonexistent.

                It was shredded. A good sized chunk taken was taken out and there was blood all over her pants and the area around her.

                I look back at my dog and there is blood on her muzzle and chest.

                I call to her and she immediately calms down, wagging her tail.

                After they load the lady in the ambulance they finally release my dog, who calmly pads over to me wagging her tail.

                She stays protectively right next to me, basically pressed against my leg, eyeing absolutely everyone.

                Every single officer stood as far as possible from me, even the ones talking to me, eyeing my dog, who was still covered in blood.

                They left and I gave her a bath.

                I never found out what happened but if I hadn’t decided to put my big girl outside the only thing between that crazy woman and my little brother would have been a 5’ 19 year old and a 13 year old wiener dog.

                        I have a story. Once I was sitting at my computer playing something. My dog was sitting in my room, sound asleep. When, I thought I heard something in the house.(my parents weren’t home) and I thought to myself, “is there someone in my house?” The only “weapon” I had was a small glass coke bottle. So I grabbed that and went around the house. Then I went to the kitchen and grabbed a knife. There was no one. My dog would have sensed it. (She’s good at sensing people) then I went back upstairs and resumed my game. I was genuinely freaked out.

                            Describing gunshots as "plops" is literally the least threatening way you could describe the sound of a gun. Not _exactly_ inaccurate, I can see how you could make that connection, but it really removes any seriousness and intimidation you might try to convey when you're telling a story about hearing gunshots.

                              Fun fact: btk stands for bind torture kill. It was a serial killer that started killing everyone in his neighborhood(probably the one the story was talking about) the daughter of the killer heard about btk in their neighborhood on the news and was probably scared like everyone else. She found out later that it was her dad killing everyone. She later said in an interview that she still just sees him as her dad and not a serial killer.

                                I have a scary story :). a few

                                1) one night while my family was in the kitchen (which has a huge window that overlooks our backyard) we saw a person in all black trying to steal my dog, Shiloh. she's a German shepherd born nov 1 2012 and is my baby. someone ran outside and scared them off.

                                2) my sister had a bunk bed. she pulled out the bottom bunk and laid there to comfort my dog, Ziva. (a boxer pitbull mix born jan 15 2010.) and in the middle of the night, all of the drawers on the bunkbed (the bunkbed had like 5 drawers and a desk and shelving... it broke 2 years ago.) and swung over their heads. I know for a fact that they both hit their heads. and yes, this did happen. the drawers (2) were dented and could never close fully after that.

                                3) for 2 years, every few nights, I would hear someone whisper in my right ear. only my right. and I wasn't hearing stuff. they would laugh at me and kinda make fun of me. always say hello. scared me. I couldn't sleep after that

                                        We have an alarm system at my mom's. Over the summer, i would watch my sister (WHo was around one and a half at the time.) the doors in the house were almost all closed.

                                        My sister was asleep and i heard a door shut. The alarm didn't go off.

                                        My stepdad called me while i was debating calling him to tell him i heard a door shut. He heard the fear in my voice, asked me what was wrong, and told me to get the dogs inside (We have big and protective dogs. they aren't something to be trifled with.) He was home in five minutes.

                                        no doors had been opened or shut.

I was half asleep and grabbed a pencil off the floor, but paralyzed with fear couldn't do anything. I decided I had to do something so I rolled over now facing the window and threw the pencil at it. Noting was there. I'm now realizing how dumb that was because I live on the second floor there's no way anyone is getting g to my window

                                                      When I was 13 (am 16 now). I was home with my friend. We were by ourselves. My mom, dad, and sister were all at a restaurant, because me and my friend wanted pizza at home. We were sitting on the couch watching a scary movie. When the movie was over we started playing video games. I heard a noise coming from the back bathroom. It was a short hallway, but in a part of the house with no windows. I went to check it out, I took my cat with me because I just got done watching a scary movie, I was sh*tting myself. I saw that the water in the bathroom was on. That was odd because we have the nozzle on the sink taped down because my would accidentally turn it on. The tape was cut, the sink was plugged, so the water was overflowing. I turn it off and drained the sink, put the tape back over the nozzle and turned to leave. But in my sister’s room, which is right outside the bathroom, I saw someone standing there. I took off running, my cat did the same, but her tail was all poofed out. She was hissing at the hallway, and had her back sticking up in the air. At the same time my friend was intrigued by the commotion. So he stuck his phone in the hallway and started taking pictures with the flash on. He stopped when my cat growled and ran away, all color drained from his face, his eyes got wide and he took off running. We looked at the pictures and found someone standing in my sisters room, completely dark. Shadowy even. We called the cops. They didn’t find anything on our outside cameras. The man never even left, but he wasn’t there. My sister never slept in her room again, and my friend went home early. We shortly moved out of that house.

                                                                At this point we are all terrified so we real quick went to my sisters friends house (she was are neighbor also) we had left the doors unlocked because we were next door, when we went to go back to the house the doors were locked, they decided to send me in through a window, after I unlocked all the doors my sisters friend noticed that the doors kept locking and at that point we were done with this ghost shit, my sister was on her period so she had to get a tampon from upstairs but when she looked in the mirror she saw a man standing behind her , she let this bloody murder scream out and I had never ran so fast out of a house, I live in the same house still smh I’m not rich enough just because I have multiple scary ass things happen here I can’t move houses are expensive to rent

                                                                It happened when I was a baby, a year and some months. My dad worked as a security guard at a bank, that night he got the night shift. It was only mom and me. Our house was pretty huge, even though we didn't have much money and my parents were too young, both 21, we got a godly deal on that house. It was in the outskirts of a growing city, wasn't even painted yet. Mom was doing crochet on the tv room, when she heard me crying quite loudly. It was unusual, as I didn't really cry until I was 3, thus it wasn't long my mom had put me to sleep. She went to my bedroom, took me in her arms and as she tapped me into sleep, she turned around to the window, at the end of the corridor, and saw a man, looking directly to us, face glued to the glass, with a terrible smiling face. Mom ran to her bedroom, which was the only room in the house with a double window(wood, glass and iron) and locked the door. She hid under the bed, with me. The weirdo started to knock on each and every window in the house, as to scare us. Cellphones weren't well accepted thing at the job yet(I was born in 2000), and specially at the kind of job my dad had, so he didn't pick it up when my mom called. My mom ended sleeping under the bed with me. My dad was coming home from his shift when he saw the creep jumping out of the garden wall from afar, he woudn't get the guy. He went home running, searched the house for us, the he found the bedroom locked. He kicked it until my mom woke, I was okay.

No one believes me but im 1000000% sure it was a demon.

(my dad wasn't mad bc he said he was doing his job and he usually text me first but he was carrying stuff, just grateful it wasn't the pitbull)
