I have never heard of the "Hat Man" until reading this thread tonight and I have found it so interesting and will be reading the other mentioned
thread too. Before I do however, I would just like to share my experience.
I live in a house built in the early 1930's which I have extended, going to great lengths to ensure that the new rooms fit in with the character of
the original house and I think I succeed. The original house was built by a couple who lived here until they died.I am the third owner. Those before
me had the house repossessed so it was in a poor old state when I bought it.
One night I had an argument with my partner and decided to sleep in the spare room which is original to the house. Just after going to bed I was
laying there looking out of the window when I heard footsteps come across the landing, then into the bedroom to the side of the bed and I could feel
he was stood behind me. I say he as I presumed this was my partner coming to say sorry. When I turned over to speak there was a man stood there with a
dark brimmed hat and a long coat on. I screamed but when I say screamed I opened my mouth but I was so scared I couldn't get any noise out! And with
a blink he was gone. I sat there all night till the sun came up as I daren't leave the room and I have never slept in that room again.
To be honest sometimes I believe in things, sometimes I don't but I tried to get my head round it by saying it was the man who built the house either
saying he was happy or not happy with what I had done to his home. I put the hat down to maybe something they might of worn in the 30's but I have no
recollection of any face and I didn't in the morning when I told my partner about it, there was just no face but there was, hard to explain.
No meaing to go off topic but......
I have since put my house up for sale and thankfully we got an offer within a couple of weeks but in the three weeks since it has sold our internet
radio has broken, so has 2 game consoles (one had it's chip totally fried even though it had hardly been used), the kettle, the tv has developed a
mind of it's own with lines appearing across it at various times, our computers have turned themselves off (at different times), another tv will
refuse to turn on, and 2 ipods stopped working. Electrics have been checked and I have surge units and they are all fine. Our doorbell (battery) rings
all the time and there's no one there but I've tried to put this down to maybe peoples car alarm buttons setting it off. And the cats have started
running round the house like mad and one sits on the banister for ages on her own. Believe me I want to find a plausible reason for this but I brush
it off by making a joke saying "someones not happy we've sold the house" There's something just not right.
Anyway sorry to go on but that's my story.
