House hunting is never easy, but as author Olivia A. Cole recently discovered, sometimes the buyer is their own worst enemy. In a masterful, GIF-packed Twitter thread, she explained how she almost wound up in a definitely haunted home because she kept ignoring the glaring signs of supernatural evil everywhere—preferring, instead, to gush about the hardwood floors and porcelain bathtub.
