Hi I live in Scranton in an old home on Southside built in 1921 right off of Pittston ave, and in the past I've noticed brooms falling to the ground by themselves as if someone knocks them over on purpose, the weird part about it is that they did not fall to the side, they wouldn't fall like if they slid and fell, they would fall straight forward from the wall not to the sides as would be normal if they slid. I then stood the broom back up and called my kids who were in their mid teen's at the time and had them come downstairs and explained what had happened, I stood the broom back up 3 times as we waited in the living room for it to happen again, and we heard the broom fall again 2 times, and the 2 times it fell in exactly the same manner.
On another occasion I saw a dark shadow stare at me one night in front of the refrigerator through the corner of my eye and I called out my kids' names to see who it was because it was late at night, and when no one answered I got scared and ran after it in the direction that it went towards thinking it was one of my kids possibly pulling a prank on me. I ran to each one of their rooms as fast as I could and to my amazement they were all asleep. I then woke each one of them up to see if they were faking it but they were not, it was not any of them. I know what I saw and it was real.
The other day I was with my son sitting at the dining room table discussing business since we both sell online and it was early in the morning around 10:00 AM, the windows were still closed and as I typed on the computer and he sat across me on the table reading. I noticed the new paper towel roll that was standing between us fall as if a heavy wind had knocked it over but the windows were closed and there was no wind or air circulation in the room at all. I asked him did you just see that, and he answered yes yes I did.
The same night I was going to bed and it was 2:47 AM and as I was going to my room that is on the first floor on the right hand side of the home it was dark with only the light from the refrigerator to illuminate my way. I hit my foot on a wooden gate that my wife puts near the door to our room to keep my dogs out a rotty and a pitbull, so I went back into the kitchen and turned on the light and noticed my small toe was bleeding. I cleaned it and turned the light off in the kitchen and proceeded back to my room with my pillow tucked under my arm and in the semi dark I picked up the wooden gate and was carrying it to put it away because it was the second time this week I banged my foot on it and when I picked it up with both hands and clenching my pillow under my arm the light turned on by itself and I proceeded to place the gate down in front of the washing machine and went into my room and woke my wife up. The hairs on my arm were standing straight up and I have never been so terrified in my life because it was not the first time strange things happen in my home but it was starting to get out of hand.
And the reason I am writing this story is because this morning at 6:AM after my wife left to work I am sitting working on my computer that is in front of my room and at exactly 7:AM the same light turned on by itself again and I went over to check it out again pretending not to be scared. I also checked the bathroom that is in the same hallway to make sure my kids were not in there and it was empty, and then I went upstairs to check on my son who is now 25 and my daughter who is now 17 and they were both asleep. I came back down and started to look online for an explanation, then I got up about an hour later and went to the bathroom and now the bathroom light was on. My kids are still asleep so it was not them and I checked my light switch the first time it happened last week and there is nothing wrong with it. The hairs on my arms are standing straight up as I type this. Because I do not know how to fight this and it is getting out of hand.
Sincerely yours, guy from Scranton. Saturday, August 10 10:40 2013.
