All of the creepiest, freakiest, spookiest things happen at night—that's just a fact. Which is why anyone who works the night shift deserves a gold medal for bravery.
1.) From zoinks_a_ghost:
I'm a nurse, so a I see a lot of freaky stuff working days at the hospital as well but I used to work nights. There's a common phenomenon amongst dementia patients called sundowning. A dementia patient can be sweet and innocent all day but once night falls they do a complete 180 and become agitated and often hostile. Also more patients die on night shift for some reason. They always seem to want to crash around 3am.
2.) From KritKommander:
Train inspector here, walking a train in the middle of the night, pitch black, come up to a freight car that had 4 hobos sitting in it, just staring at me. Dudes never said a word, just watched me, I eased by them, and kept going, but couldn't get past the feeling of them behind me for a good while.
