Halloween isn't here yet, but it's always a good time for scary stories that'll make you pee your pants a little. If you need some new material, all it takes is a simple Google search and you'll find countless people sharing stories of the creepiest thing that ever happened to them. If you love a good scare, this is right up your alley. If you'd like to sleep peacefully tonight or have any sort of heart condition, best to steer clear.
The stories span a variety of topics, from ghost sightings to creepy music that can't be explained to malfunctioning electronics and beyond. It's fascinating. It's eerie. It makes me want to cry for my mother. We're not talking about creepypasta — you know, web-based horror fiction. This is real life! Stuff that people truly experienced! Or at least stuff that they made up in their mind and then put on the internet claiming it's real but who cares because it's cool!
I love a good scary story. I love Halloween. I'm sorry, but I can't wait until October for all the good stuff to start circulating again. Here are some of the scariest things that have happened to the people of the interwebs.
