Hi Ben, HR horror stories, hmmmmm. I will really have to think about that. Don’t think I’ve had anything quite as dramatic as that. We did have an employee a few years back who believed there to be evil spirits residing in the facility. And here’s one that was creepy. We serve people with disabilities. The families of two women rented a house for them with the understanding that we would provide a counselor to live with them. After the lease was signed, we learned that the reason the families got a good deal on the place is because the former occupant had killed two of her three foster children and kept them in the freezer. (She is now incarcerated and the third child has been placed in a loving home.) As you can imagine, it was a horrible, creepy experience, especially for the counselor who had to move it with the residents. She had the place saged and blessed by a priest but it was a long time before she felt truly comfortable there.
@Krista Oooh! I remember you telling me the creepy story about the house. That still gives me chills. Thanks for sharing!
