  1. In 1988-89 I worked at GALLAUDET PRESS, in the basement of the High School and occasionally when I’d worked late NOT only were there mysterious sounds coming from the back door and behind the dark theater hall area, leading to the stage; adjacent to our offices, there were also sounds of the back steel door opening & closing, which were the office’s main entrance & exit.

    Although I’d stop long enough to peer around the corner, down in that direction… there was NOTHING & NOONE in sight. BUT as soon as I continued working, the noise would start back up again, now right behind me, in the shipping area.

    And the kicker was, in order to get to my car, in the dim lit garage, I had to pass all the aforementioned areas with questionable activities.

    So when it was time to make that move, I tried to walk quickly pass & through to reach my car, yet I still experienced a HEAVY feeling of being watched & followed right outside to the back area leading to the dimly lit parking garage.
