Paranormal work story Posted on May 25, 2023 by Anonymous Hope this is the right place to post this but I cannot explain what happened
I am listening.
It better be spooky
Let's hear it old boy.
This happened to me a while back but I'll set the stage. I work at a gym that closes at 12 and we lock up around 11:45. I work the front desk and check everybody in and at this time at night I am the only person working in the building with about 15 members working out.
This dude comes in wearing camo pants, fingerless gloves, and a full ski mask. Thought I was boutta be robbed but he was a member and scanned his tag. His profile had a blank picture for his profile and his name was "ASDFGH". This is really weird since we set up every profile that comes through unless they fill it out online but I think nothing of it and keep working.
About 10 minutes pass by and I'm walking around the gym, making sure that people aren't fucking shit up. I see him at the shoulder press machine like 50 feet from the counter I work at and kind of laugh to myself "why the hell did you come to workout in a ski mask?" I thought to myself. I turn around and he's at the supplement rack next to the counter. This mf moved 50 feet in the time it took me to turn around.
I play it off that I'm just tired and walk to the counter to pull up the POS system. Took maybe 5 seconds to pull up and he's gone. Left the gym, completely without even making a noise and the tub of protein he was looking at is already back on the rack.
Is this anywhere notable? Could be someone famous who wants anonymity.
Also sorry for terrible formatting this is my first time making a story like this on here.
Our doors are loud as fuck so whenever someone opens them it's a loud ass metal noise and there isn't that many people in the gym. I spend the next 10 minutes looking for this mother fucker and eventually accept that I'm going insane and go back to scrolling on my phone. About 20 minutes pass by and I get up and start walking around the gym again to make sure shits still in order and there he is, running on a treadmill after not being in the gym at all. I'm staring this mf down now making sure he isn't going anywhere and keep making my rounds. After a little while I'm closer to the front end of the gym by the counter again and see him still running. "Yep I've fucking lost it" i think and start walking back to the counter when bam, there he fucking is again. Now our treadmills are at the back of the gym, like 200 feet away from the counter and this mf is already at the counter, looking for protein again.
I walk up to the computer again staring at him making sure he doesn't move and set up the pos system. He brings up a Tub of protein powder and scans his membership tag, but this time its a profile that was made literally 5 minutes ago with a full name, profile picture and a card already listed which you cant do without a worker setting up your profile.
I'm sweatin at this point thinking of how he's doing this shit and scan his stuff in. He asks if he can leave the protein here while he goes and works out and I say yea sure and he goes and works out.
So it hits 11:45 and I start locking the doors and walk around picking up weights and making sure stuff is cleaned and I see him doing lateral raises at the free weight section. I'm watching him the whole time and making sure he is still doing this workout. I have to change out a paper towel roll so I go to the closet at the front of the gym and grab one and the keys to open the dispenser and walk over to it. It's facing him so I have to turn my back to the guy for a second to change it and so I do. Doesn't take more than a few seconds to change the paper towels out but when I turn back he's fucking gone again and the protein is missing. He stopped working out, walked like 100 feet to the counter, grabbed the powder, and left without a fucking single noise at all, not even the doors opening. I'm shittin bricks at this point and quickly finish up cleaning and escort everyone out of the gym before making sure it's empty. It's maybe 12:10 now and there is nobody here but me and the cleaning person we have to mop the floor and I go use the restroom. No one is in the gym, the bathroom is empty and the front doors are locked. I walk in and he's in there washing his hands...I told him were closed and he walks out without a word. I hang back a little bit to see if i really am losing my mind but when I round the corner to follow him out, he's fucking gone again. without anything happening, I ended up staying extra time to double check everything and had the cleaner looking at me like a fucking crazy person and asking why im still here at like 12:30.
I don't know what the fuck happened and I haven't seen him since that day and the worst part is his account wasn't even in the fucking list of people who came in, neither of his accounts were there and the purchase wasn't in the system. This dude had no way of not getting noticed at all and I couldn't keep up with him at all. I don't know what the fuck happened because there is no way I made all this shit up in my head or I'm going crazy because this has never happened and it hasn't happened with anyone else.
Sounds like an actual Men In Black encounter. (Not to be confused with the movie characters.) You see any other weird paranormal shit lately or talk to anyone about paranormal stuff? (Besides /x/, I mean either in person or over the phone.)
Nothing that I can think of, I usually call my friends while I'm at work since it's a pretty relaxed job but I can't think of anything paranormal that we talked about
Right. In case you're unfamiliar with the phenomenon, Men In Black act weird and try to "fit in" to our social norms but usually do so very poorly. They usually have very strange facial features (like no lips or no eyelids) but people usually don't notice immediately. This could be why he wore a mask. There's a lot of theories about what these things are, but there's no consensus. Some folks think they are related to Black Eyed Kids, which is another extremely similar phenomenon, except it involves spooky kids.
The teleporting around the gym thing is somewhat consistent with Men In Black stories. When they leave they have a tendency to just vanish without leaving any evidence they they were there. It's also sometimes unclear how they even arrive or enter buildings to begin with.
The most common reason these entities show up is there's usually some other paranormal shit going on that they are attracted to for whatever reason.
As far as I know Men In Black is a totally harmless phenomenon and you likely will not see this guy again.
To my knowledge the MiB work as field agents. Getting people to be quiet about certain events, retrieving certain items or individuals, cleaning up after messes, erasing evidence, that sort of work.
If you've ever wondered about the old saying of "Wow, strange how there are no UFO sightings anymore when everyone had an HD camera in their pocket!". The reason is because these people have backdoors in literally everything, including websites and especially social media. These people have black budget money to get their objectives completed.
What about cameras? Surely there are some set up
seconding this question, do you have access to the security footage op? What did their eyes look like if they were wearing a ski mask?
those vanished with the power of larp
