    I always have thought my old school girl toilet is haunted as I once put my lunchbox on the top of toilet shelf then when I turn back, it would be sitting on the floor perfect upright. And that happened again the next time I went to the same toilet stall and it freak me out so I avoided it. Also I would hear someone talking in there. Like two people there having normal conversation but I don’t know what they say though.

    I remember there used to be this one ice cream truck and it would still be active at night- in case anyone wanted a midnight snack, but it was creepy as hell for me.

    You see, open windows when you’re home alone scare the crap out of me. So once, my mother left me at home alone because she needed to pick up my younger sister from school, and I was sitting in the living room, doing my own thing. And all of a sudden, I heard CREAAAAAAK from the bedroom. I freaked out, because there was no TV on or anything that could make a sound like that. So what did I do? I grabbed the biggest damn knife the was in the kitchen, and slowly went into the bedroom, expecting some psycho to be waiting there. There was no one there, just a closet door open… That closet door only makes noise if its opened by someone, because the hinges are rusty. And the bedroom window was open. I don’t kno if it was the wind….or what…. but it was creepy.

    @alicorn this a common story of every school. Every school has its own stories about “ghost in the toilet”! :D Even my school had its own!

    20 is right! My schools bathroom is pretty creepy, some say it’s haunted! It doesn’t look scary, it looks like any ordinary public bathroom, but sometimes bloody handprints appear on the walls, and sinks turn on by themselves… To be honest, it’s kinda creepy, especially imagine it at night!
