The Haunted Workshop

29 April 2016 | April 2016

The story I’m telling you today happened to me a couple of years ago and it is true.

I live in South Africa –  Pretoria. My friend had phoned me one day telling me that I could get a job in Cape Town as a panel beater.  The pay was unbelievable and I bought my airline ticket, went for the job interview and got it.  The only problem was that I didn’t have a place to stay so my friend told me that I could stay in his workshop for a couple of days until I was sorted with a place. When I arrived at his place, I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t too bad.  It had a bed, shower and toilet and a kitchen.

handIt happened that first night when I was staying in the workshop. My friend had given me the keys of the workshop just in case I wanted to go out. I was sleeping with those keys underneath my pillow that night and I had a dream that someone was at the door.  When I unlocked the door, a pair of hands pulled me with a force out of the workshop and that’s when I woke up terrified and sweating in fear. I was thirsty and so I went to the kitchen for a drink but something told me to go to the front of the workshop.  I don’t know why I did but I did and when I got there, I found all the doors and main garage door were standing open.  I freaked out just there and phoned my friend. It was about 3am in the morning when he arrived as we thought someone had broken in. We checked everything and all was fine.  I told my friend though that I was leaving and that I would rather stay some other place than in his haunted workshop. That’s when he told me that things move around by themselves during the day!

So I found another place to stay and even until today that place still freaks me out.
