Everything gets 1,000 times creepier after midnight—there's a reason it's called the "witching hour." And people who regularly stay up late generally have a higher threshold for creepiness than us thin-skinned morning people. Someone asked night owls of Reddit to share the "creepiest" thing that have ever happened to them past midnight, and they delivered.
Warning: read by daylight.
1.) From ACoolWizard:
More funny than creepy, but definitely odd. I was sitting on my apartment balcony about 2:30 AM last week, and one of my cats was chilling with me at the other end on the balcony railing. We're on the 2nd floor, across from a very dark park, and the cats love sitting to watch the world go by.
Anyway, I'm sitting browsing Reddit and having a dart when I hear some little voice go "Mew!" At first, I thought it was the cat - but then I hear it again, this little "Mew! Mew mew! Psst!" and notice my cat is staring intently down at the road.
I lean forward to look down through my balcony slats, and some woman has stopped her car in the middle of the street, leaned out the window, and is meowing up at my cat on the railing.
I didn't want to stand up and startle her so I just waited, and she sat there for five minutes mewing and trying to get his attention before speeding off. Very strange. Assume drugs were involved.
