Has anything weird happened to you in Ghost Month? This year two strange things have happened to me…
Finished teaching bushiban on the fifth floor at 7pm. No kids anywhere except the first floor because Anxinban finishes at 4:30pm during Summer Vacation. So I cleaned the classroom, put out the lights and locked the doors. Couldn’t be bothered to take the stairs so I wait for the elevator. As it approaches I hear kids voices speaking Chinese in the elevator. As mentioned, they should all be on the first floor, not buggering around in the elevator. Getting ready to give them an earful the elevator opens and…no one.
I shit you not. I decided to take the stairs, and sure enough, no kids anywhere except the first floor.
The light in my study went on the blink a few months ago and I’ve just not gotten around to changing the damn thing. Last night I flicked the switch (more out of habit than anything else) and voila!! The light came on. “Ah, that’s nice!” I thought, thinking the missus must have changed it for me. When she came home I asked her when she’d changed the light in my study, to which she replied that she hadn’t…
Maybe not spooky, but just bad luck. Before the wife came home last night I asked her to buy some milk on her way home. She stopped at the usual place and whilst walking to the store from her car, holding my son in one arm and her handbag over the other shoulder, some asshole on a scooter speeds past and snatched her handbag. First time I’ve (personally or through a close friend or loved one) ever experienced any sort of crime in Taiwan, other than a few weeks ago when I posted about the friend of mine who had money stolen out of her closet.
The poor woman was really shaken. Hope the bastard gets a pain in his ass that never goes away.
Anyone else with spooky Ghost month stories?
