7. A Creepy Apparition
Reddit user GolfTripAnimal shares an experience their mother went through. “My mom used to be an RN at a hospital in a small western town. This hospital was connected to a senior living home, and at night, the RN over-watched both sides of the building (hospital and living home). She was usually the overnight RN and would have either one or two CNAs working as well. She has experienced this apparition about 6 or 7 times during her 10-year stint there, and everyone has referred to the apparition as ‘The Man in Black.’ Each experience was identical except for the location in the building. Frequently throughout the night, she would have to do her rounds (checking vitals, etc.) and would have to walk around a corner from the nurses’ station/ER towards the (6) beds in the hospital and towards the senior home.
“She would see the apparition either right after rounding the corner or right after walking out of a room and walking to the next… The apparition was of a person in a black, old (old west type) suit with worn black cowboy boots and worn black cowboy hat to match. The creepiest thing about this man (assuming) is that his face was not very distinct. She would describe it as though a man’s face was drawn with charcoal and slightly smeared, making it slightly blurred. He was about 6’5″ and would tower over her 5’5″. Whenever she would see him (whether it’s 10 feet or 3 feet away), he would stand there looking at her and then turn and walk into the room he was outside of.”
