      The ladies room is 2 chambers; first chamber when you enter is where the mirror and sink are, which you have to pass through to go through a 2nd door where the toilet is. Using the toilet one night, the jukebox was right outside of the 1st door. Several friends were at a table across from the jukebox. I heard the outer door open, jukebox got loud as if the door had opened, and I heard it slam behind ‘someone’. Then the door to the toilet was jiggled, as if someone was trying to get in past the lock. I yelled, just a minute, irritated that someone was so aggressively trying to break in on me. Whoever it was, I thought, would be standing there waiting with a full bladder when I exited from using the toilet, because I never heard them leave. So I was quite surprised to open the door and find the first room completely empty except for a cold chill inhabiting the space in front of the sink. Upon returning to my table, a little spooked, I asked all of my friends if someone had just been to the restroom while I was in there. Everyone looked blankly at me. Nobody had been anywhere near that door.
