New place of work seems haunted...

I recently started working in a new job, which I'm loving. I managed to leave my old job which I utterly hated and which was slowly killing me. The new building I work in is around 150 years old and has a damp, smelly basement where the staff room, kitchen and bathroom/changing room are (it's a small price to pay for a wonderful job!).

I've been there for around 6 months now, but around the 4 month mark I was just coming out of the bathroom when I saw something out of the corner of my eye. It looked like the tail end of a person just disappearing off to my left. I just assumed it was another staff member and, as I came out of the bathroom I expected to see the person in the corridor or in the staff room but.....there was no one there.

I didn't mention it to anyone as I was still quite new and I didn't want them to think I was la-la! No one had said anything about the place potentially being haunted so I didn't want to risk being the first person to bring up the subject! :D

However, two weeks ago, one of my colleagues told me that the place is haunted! Apparently, almost all the staff have seen or heard something in the basement, including some of the more senior staff (bosses). Of course, I told her about my experience and in turn she related a few of the things that had happened to her and the others.

One of the bosses had been alone in the building one night and heard something in the basement. He went down to see who was there and he called out "who's that?". The reply was a groan.

Some others have had things flying off the walls in the kitchen and have also heard it saying "boo!" behind them.

I do feel somewhat vindicated! :D

I’m so glad that you got validated by the other witnesses. There are spirits visiting everywhere I suspect. Hopefully this is just a residual thing and not a haunting.

Well, I don't feel anything negative coming from it and the others have said it feels like a benign feminine energy. If she's sneaking up behind people and saying "boo!", I suspect she's quite cheeky/playful :D

I’m so happy for you that you got a job you’re happy with. Best of luck.

Aww, thanks Debi. I'm honestly ecstatic about it. The last ten years at the old place were hell and it was affecting my personal life too. The people at my new job are wonderful and everything about it is "right". Going there feels like going home -- even with the ghost in the basement! :D

That actually was Lynne, but I'll add in my congrats as well.
