I have a few stories I’d like to share with everyone and they are all true. Now, I’d like everyone’s opinions because I love feedback. So, comments and feedback would be appreciated about what you’d do in these situations and I’d like to hear some scary things that happened to you.

This first one actually happened last week. So, at the beginning of the year I got a gym membership. My gym is only four minutes from my house driving. The gym I go to, you have a card. The card lets you into the gym, so you can work out whatever time you want. So, last week I went down early, a little after six in the morning. As soon as I walked in, there was an older man sitting in a chair.

He said “You’re Preston, right?” I replied, “Yes, I am.” Now, I have never seen this man in my life. The card doesn’t have your name come up anywhere so there is no way that this man would know me. Plus, I never go out ever so I don’t know many people. That’s all the man said, of course there is more to it.

The man then left, and I haven’t seen him since. Now, last Friday I went back over. I have a set time now and everyday go over at nine in the morning. I walked in and this time it was another man. He looked in his sixties. As soon as he saw me he said, “You’re the guy that wants to be a policeman and your name is Preston, right?” I was going for criminology at college and my name is Preston. Once again, I have no idea who this man is.

I said “Yes, I am and that is my name, who are you?” I think he said his name was Gary or something. It makes no sense how either one of those two men knew who I was when I didn’t know them. My parents have never gone to that gym and my parents are way younger than those two. I still see the one man in there but he never says much to me.

This story happened at my last job. I worked as a maintenance man at the Belmont Complex. The Belmont Complex is an ice skating arena. I’d always work the late shifts, meaning I’d always be there always until at least ten. Sometimes though, I’d be there until two thirty in the morning. I had my own keys to the place and a lot of times I was the only person there.

Once, everyone was done skating and left, I’d clean and I ran the Zamboni. The Zamboni is the machine used to cut the ice for the skaters.  This one night, I went out front to get the garbage. I looked out in the parking lot and noticed a dark red car sitting at the end of the parking lot. It was probably eight o’ clock. Sometimes people do park there and go out with friends then come back. One quick note, this was August of last year so it was still light out.

I looked and noticed all the windows were covered. It looked like they put a sheet over the windows so you couldn’t see in. I didn’t think much of it and finished gathering the garbage and went back in. I finished cleaning and when it was time for me to clock out I did then went home. The next day I noticed the car was there again and this time I paid more attention to it throughout the evening. I still worked but occasionally checked on the car.

I was beginning to think that it was just there until a man got out and walked into the woods. Yes, at the end of the parking lot there are woods. He came back to his car about five minutes later. He still had all the windows covered and I figured he just peed or something. The thing is he didn’t leave. He just stayed there all night while I was there and when I was there he was still there.

Now, I was wondering why he kept coming and staying for hours. It’s just weird he would park in the same spot all the time, the whole way at the end where nobody else was or even near. It’s also weird he always covered the car windows. A few more days of this and I told my boss about it. He contacted the police and said the police were looking into it.

My personal opinion is that he was a drug dealer and was selling drugs there but I don’t know. He never picked up anyone and why would he cover the car? It just doesn’t make sense and there was no reason to stay for hours every evening. I hope everyone enjoyed these two stories and please comment what you think or would have done. Also, let me know if anything weird or scary ever happened to you.
