  1. I use to work there. up stairs, where all our extra things were stored, also where we had to get ice, I often felt uneasy, and quit a few times i put things down that i had to look for and i found them where i didn’t even go. Once i was carrying ice, and when i got to the top of the stairs to my right was a living room area and i saw a man standing there, but i didn’t look right at him till i put the buckets down but he was gone, and no one was up there but me. Tv was turned off and on for no reason on other nights.
