If you don’t believe me, listen to these 16 people who had some pretty terrifying experiences just when they least expected it. i was in a local swimming pool and a friend mentioned how he thought i could fit into the storage locker. I was the only person in what had been a room with a half-dozen people going back and forth. I’m not sure it was the most terrifying thing that happened to me, but it was the most terrifying thing that happened to me at that point in my life. Next thing I knew, he was screaming at me about some friend I hadn’t seen in a while.
