I used to work at the local hospital as a CNA. I worked both long term care and med/surg. One night as I walked up to the elevator on med/surg the button to call the elevator lit up. The arrows would light up if someone was using the elevator but the button only lit up if you pushed it. I shrugged it off though and used the elevator when it opened. Later that same evening when I went to go home the same thing happened. One of the nurses was with me and she noticed it also. She asked if I'd pushed the button and she just didn't see it. I told her no and that the same thing had happened earlier. I figured it was probably just a short or something and told her that. She let maintenance know and they said they'd check it out.

The next night the same thing happened and I got the feeling I should say thank you. So I did. I mentioned it to other nurses and they all said that never happened to them. One of the nurses that had worked there a long time said they used to have a long term resident that liked to push the elevator button for nurses and aides that he liked. Every time I used the elevator after that the light would come on by itself. I'd say thank you. It never happened to any of the other aides or any of the nurses unless they were riding the elevator with me. I worked there for three and a half years and when I left, I was the only one that had ever happened to. I was also the only one that had never gotten stuck in those elevators.

I have another less friendly ghost story, and a couple other more friendly ghost stories. If you'd like to hear them let me know.

I just posted a ghost story in the What did you dream last night Thread
I must have missed something, I was sure the ghost stories started in that thread

Here's a another experience I had.
After my Grandmother passed I lived in her house for some time and each morning when I went to the kitchen to make coffee there would be boiled water and a tea pot with tea and cups with saucers ready and waiting. She loved her tea and always wanted to make some in her Bone China cups for everyone who visited.
Maybe she just came to visit :)
