I think I would have buried it.
Daughter had this Minnie Mouse baby doll that crawled on all fours when you touched a button on its back.
Wife and I woke up at 2 am to the sound of the dolls creepy laugh. Went out to the living room and the doll was walking straight into the corner.
Each time it stopped, it would just start right over again. The button wasn’t broken or anything, so I’m not sure what happened.
What a way to wake up!
I used to live a few minutes away from Buncefield oil storage facility; it was the fifth largest oil depot in the U.K.
On the morning of 11th December 2005, it exploded!
The explosion threw me out of my bed, and the doors of our house burst open.
I looked outside my bedroom window, and the sky was engulfed by a giant fireball! 11-year-old me genuinely thought it was the end of the world.
It still baffles me as to how no one died during that incident. –notJeffbutGeoff
Sleeping at home, alone, I woke up one night when I rolled over, and someone else’s limp arm flopped across my chest.
I freaked out, grabbed the arm, flung it away, and tried to scramble out of bed before realizing that it was my own arm.
It had completely lost all feeling up to the shoulder. –95percentconfident
"They got me!"
“OPEN UP! POLICE! WE HAVE A SEARCH WARRANT!”
It was about 6 am, accompanied by banging that was loud as sh*t.
Turns out it was for the apartment beneath my bedroom window but I sat straight up, and my first thought was, “Oh no, they got me!” despite being one of the least shady people alive. –elguapo51
This might be the worst one:
My housemate came home drunk after midnight from a Halloween party dressed as Jason from Friday the 13th.
He walked into my room by mistake in his full Voorhees costume and just stood in the middle of the room looking around trying to work out where he was.
Woke me up as my door opened and I was frozen terrified for a good 30 seconds. Bought a lock for my door the following week. –newo_ikkin_
This next story is equal parts scary and adorable.
