I debated whether or not to even share this one, but I can't get it out of my head, so here goes. This was Halloween night, not this year, clearly,
and highly subjective, I know, but the fear factor was very real. My husband and I were driving on a highway, and he stated that he needed to find a
bathroom. Within minutes of his announcement, I noticed a neon-type sign, green and red, as common for many roadside gas stations, off to the right.
I mentioned it, and he took the exit. Oddly, the sign was no longer visible. At first, I speculated that perhaps it had just been turned off, but
the time was between the hour and half hour, which would be an odd time for that to happen. Also, this was a very small place, near where two
highways joined up, and we didn't even spot a closed station anywhere. There was nothing with such a sign anywhere. At this point, I was already
starting to fell very tense, and couldn't think of any reason why. No other cars around, not a soul in sight, but I felt tense, as though we were
being stalked. After the fruitless search for the station, he ended up pulling over in an area with a lot of big trucks, to relieve himself somewhat
out of sight. By this time, the feeling as so strong I insisted that he stay within sight of the car. He felt something a little off, but not as
intensely as I did. At any rate, business concluded, he got back in and we made our way back to the highway, and that was prtty much it. The tension
faded the further we got from that place.
Later trips, nothing at all seemed off, and we even looked later for a station, during daylight hours. There simply wasn't one there, or anything
else with a sign like I saw. I don't know what bugs me more; the feeling of being stalked, or the sign I saw vanishing into nothing. I had the
distinct feeling that the sign was some sort of odd ploy to make us pull off the road there, and that the hunted feeling goes right along with it.
As I said, very subjective, but also very real. I don't spook easily, and I am a serious night owl. I have been on foot at night in towns and in
the woods, and it doesn't bother me. Anyone else ever experience anything like this?
