Thanks for posting. I've only ever had one encounter with a "shadow person", but it was brief.
I had picked up some free standing lamps a few weeks before, and placed the two of them on opposite sides of my room. I would occasionally sleep with
one of my lamps on, in this case, it was the lamp furthest from my bed. Well, one night as I lay in bed half asleep, I noticed a tall shadowy thing
standing next to the far lamp. It had an imperceptible grin, I can't properly explain it. But I knew it was grinning at me, like it knew I was
supremely annoyed. Well, it pulled the cord on the lamp and out went the lamp, leaving me in utter darkness.
I do not believe in ghosts or ghoulies or any such nonsense, so I immediately jumped out of bed and went straight for the lamp, pulled the cord and
turned it back on. I went back to bed, layed down and as soon as I got comfortable, there it was again, at the foot of my bed standing next to the
other lamp. Again, it had a perceptible grin where you would expect a mouth to be. I felt like it was enjoying this game. I frowned, and it
immediately pulled the cord, turning off the lamp.
Now I'm pretty pissed. I pop up and walk straight to the lamp. In the darkness I can still see the shape and vague outline of this thing, standing
tall before me, grinning like a schoolkid bully. I grab the cord, pull the lamp on, and it was gone.
Haven't seen it since. I wasn't scared at all, just very annoyed. I had never heard or read anything about supposed shadow people, but I wonder
sometimes if it came along with these damn lamps I got for free.
I still have the lamps, btw. I'm sitting next to one right now, in fact.
This was about 4 years ago.
