LATE NIGHT MYSTERY (6/10)
I work night shifts at a gas station. During the weekdays it's pretty quiet, it's usually only the truckers and taxi drivers who pop by for coffee and the sandwiches we have.
But one night i was talking shit with one of the cab drivers, a car drives into the lot, parks and it sits with its flood lights on bright aimed towards the glass front. Kinda weird but maybe the guy forgot what light he got on, it happens.
The guy finally enters after maybe 5 minutes of flooding the store part with light, and its obvious he's on something.
He's jittery, wide eyed, looks disheveled, paces around before he buys a coffee and stares intensely at me throughout the purchase.
Worth mentioning, Im a 5'2 chick with the opposite of a resting bitchface, i smile friendly to everyone. But I work alone for 8 hours in the dead of night. Eerie guy pays for his coffee without a single word. (Despite my friendly chattiness) so I continue talking with the cab driver, but i still feel this guy staring at me. It was very intense and unsettling.
Cab guy probably notices this and leans on the counter and slides his card over talking a bit hushed that i should call when i get off work if that guy sticks around, because hes getting creepy vibes from him.
Cab guy was right. This guy stuck around the shop for about an hour till closing, staring at me clean up. Until some truckers arrived, then he left and sat in his car, parked up against the window staring until closing time. I called cab guy and he gave me a free ride home.
He later told me this weirdo had been driving behind his taxi with his lights on full power.
The whole thing was just creepy.

LATE NIGHT MYSTERY (9/10)
This isn't fair, because I work night shift in a psych facility.
Basically, I've seen a lot of things working at night. From people coming in high and psychotic, to people huddling naked in the corner of a room whispering.
Scariest thing I have ever seen was a patient coming out to the nurses station and saying someone is outside of their window looking in. From admission they had been experiencing pretty strong hallucinations so we assumed this was another one.
To provide some ease, we went into the room to verify that there was no one there and provide them some relief and comfort.
We have removable draw curtains in rooms and they were shut. Walked up to it and asked if it was this window. Patients told us that it was. Drew it open and had quite possibly the biggest scare of my life.
THERE WAS SOMEBODY THERE WIDE EYED AND STARING RIGHT BACK AT US THROUGH THE WINDOW.
He ran off when we saw him and we ended up calling the police as well as security.
They never found the guy and we never saw him again.
Still creeps me out to this day.
