Hello, it's the first time I've posted here and was wondering if anyone could help me?

Yesterday I was in a pub with two friends when I used the bathroom, which was located on the floor up from where my friends were sitting. The pub is a huge old building, I had assumed it was a renovated old Victorian house and the old blueprints are framed on the walls.

Anyway, just before leaving the bathroom I went back to look in the mirrors, and I realised I was alone and thought how eerie it was (the bathroom is made up of three rather big rooms). As I thought that, one of motion sensitive hand dryers went on on their own accord. I left (fled) the bathroom and went to tell my friends what had happened. As I said 'you'll never guess what just happened', the barman overheard and asked if I'd been in the ladies' toilets. Apparently lots of women have similar stories. The barman then proceeded to tell us how the pub was once a social mens club, which included servants' quarters where the toilets now are. Apparently one of the maids committed suicide in her room, which is now the ladies' toilets.

I know it sounds silly, and that a hand dryer going off is not a particularly interesting occurance, but it's been playing on my mind and wondered if anyone had had any similar experiences or any opinion as to whether there could be anything in it or I'm just being silly?

Thanks,
Leigh

hi Leigh, welcome to the forums Wink
maybe with you reliseing you were on your own and feeling it was a bit eerie spooked you a bit, old buildings tend to have that affect on people
the hand dryer could just have a fault in it

Hi Cathy,

Welcome to the forum. I agree with Flossy. The hand dryer may have been faulty or have been set off by something you weren't aware of. Electronics malfunction all the time but when they malfunction in old creepy building where we have an uneasy feeling we tend to attribute these faults to ghostly activity.

cathyscarlett, yes i think that handdryer going off is not proof, even for you - but hearing the story of the pub, i believe it is possible that there is the spirit of the dead woman or someone else there - and they could have put the dryer off

things like this have happened me before - but they are the incidents when you cant know if its paranormal or not

it would be interesting to get cameras set up in there for a few weeks to see if anything can be seen when no one is around - if theres nothing paranormal they could always sell the footage to pervs Laughing
