This is my first post and I need your help. I've been working at a grocery store for about two years now and have never seen a ghost there until last week. Two weeks ago my buddy was closing the store and saw a shadow move from one side of the room to the other. He also heard laughing and talking. I didn't believe him so I decided to go to the backroom where this happened. I asked the ghost to move anything in the room and a cart was shoved pretty hard. Obviously I got scared and ran out out of there. And just three days ago two other workers were walking in the backroom when a potato flew all by itself. And yes...we have this on caught on the store cameras. Its weird how the activity just started when the store has been opened for 20 plus years. So here is my question. What should we do about this ghost? Ignore it? Or try to communicate with it? Plus any tips in general would be nice as well.

This is great believe it or not. You should try and find more out about the store you work in. I also work I a haunted building. If the spirit really isn't causing a problem I wound't bother it just enjoy and say hello. Could be that is all it wants.

This is fascinatting. The building is 20 years old but the ghostly activity has only begun? Is it possible for you and your co-workers to find out more about the history about the grocery store. Please let us know if you find any great information as I love reading about stuff like this.

There's any number of reasons why a location will spontaneously show paranormal activity, and as many will attest, a haunting doesn't have to be tied to the building itself. The land its on, the objects it contains, and the people who spend time there have just as much impact on a potential haunting or paranormal activity.

However, from the activity observed thus far, I might go out on a limb and suggest that what is happening could be caused by an RSPK "poltergeist" event. Perhaps there is an employee who is actually acting as an agent. Were there any new hires around the time activity started...or has anyone (especially a younger, teenaged employee) gone through any stressful events lately? Does the activity seem to happen more often when any certain person is working?

When reading this, for some reason I was instantly reminded of the "Miami Poltergeist" case in which a young man was deemed to be the cause of crazy stuff happening at the souvenir distribution warehouse where he worked...lots of things flying through the air and moving on their own accord.

As for trying to make contact with this entity, I wouldn't do anything without the permission of the owners first. It is theorized that by actively making contact, you're giving the entity the go-ahead to contact YOU...and it may do so at times and in ways that you don't want. You might not stay at this job forever, but you might stir up something that future employees and owners will have to deal with. However, that doesn't mean you can't do some research. Find out what was on the property before the store was built, and find out if there have been any previous employees who recently passed away and might be stopping by.

TXHaunting5, where are you located? I work in downtown Houston and had my first two acknowledged experiences when I worked for the Harris County Clerk's Office. We were in a building either built or an existing structure was added to in 1913. After working there for four years I saw my first ghost, and I actually chased it thinking it was an after hours intruder. The District Clerk's Office was also located in the building and many had told me of their experiences and that it would be a matter of time before I had one, which was the said four years. When I told several in that office of my encounter the previous day, they kind of just shrugged and said "See, we told you".
Luckily, my particular office was the old records archive which housed the old property and probate records of the county and I specialized in historical and some genealogy research, so I eventually researched the location and determined the age of the building. It was later found that the previous building or added-to buiding served as a mortuary, as a newspaper clipping was found of our building location in an old probate file in our office. The property is also one of the original blocks platted for Houston in 1837.
To me it seems that as long as no one is being harmed that the living can co-exist with the spirits. If poltergeists, then I guess y'all have to do a lot of dodging. As Theresa said, you may not want to contact or stir up anything that may be a problem for others now or later or will follow you. I wish I had my paranormal interest then that I have now because I would have done some in-depth investigating.

I love working in haunted buildings. Every building I've worked in since moving has been haunted. I hope TXhaunting5 gives us more information or personal encounters.

I hope she hasn't been frightened by what she experienced. Maybe she's just waiting on additinal experiences.
White Witch, I would enjoy working in old buildings more if I could pay more attention to my surroundings. I think being rational-minded has caused me to miss many potential paranormal moments. I work in a much newer building now, and as far as I know nothing has happened to anyone of which I know. When I worked for the County Clerk's Office, it was a dream job being located in such an old building with such old records. Hell, I even had a couple of probate files that included documents signed by Alamo defenders and other famous Texans. Who knows what kind of energy could have been attached to those documents.

I believe there is nothing like an older building. Workmanship is second to none you have to admit. The spirits are an added plus to it all.

Very true, White Witch. Hell, the building in which I worked was an old warehouse before the county obtained it and for me it still held more interest and awe than any newer builidng. And I also agree: spirits are the "paranormal cherry" in this architectual sundae.
