True Ghost Story: Right Next To My Right Ear

Location: Burlington, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Anne on Feb 9, 2012:

“I work in a building that was built in the mid 1800’s. It is a gorgeous old place but very creepy when the lights are out. One night I was working late and waiting for my husband to come and pick me up. To give you an idea of how large the space is, it is really two houses that were joined together to become one large one and it has many rooms, hallways and stairwells.

My boss was in his office on the second floor and my husband called me to let him in the back door. I went downstairs to the very back of the building. As I walked past the darkened area that was once a formal dining room I very distinctly heard a man clear his throat right next to my right ear. The air felt like it was filled with electricity and the little hairs on my arms and the back of my neck stood on end. Without thinking I broke into a run and ran to the back door to let my husband in.

There was no way that even if my boss had cleared his throat that I could have heard it. He was at the very opposite end of the building on the floor above and no one else was inside. The sound was so clear and so close to my ear that it really un-nerved me. When my husband came in I didn’t feel scared anymore and we both walked back upstairs to the office. Other people working in this building have had their own experiences that I have since asked them about.”
