When I started at Top Banana I was told about the ghosts that supposedly haunt parts of our building, as a sceptic on these matters I just smiled and thought nothing of it, it seems that every old building in the country has a string of stories and tall tales about ghosts and goulish occurances. However a good story is a good story, so I would often chat to customers about our resident ghost or ghosts. Most just laughed it off and carried on shopping but some claimed to have a sensitivity to this sort of thing so I would set them a challenge. Top Banana Antiques Mall is a large five floor building, with eighteen rooms and various other corridors and spaces. I would tell them we had a ghost or ghosts in the building and ask them as the wandered round the building which room they thought was 'haunted'. As I said I was definitely a sceptic but everyone of these people always chose the same room! I not going to tell you which one because I would like you to come and see what you think. One medium even claimed we had two male ghosts who were gay and one was angry with the other, well relationships are difficult at the best of times and I'm sure being dead doesn't help!+ and sometimes late at night when I am on my own locking up I hear an odd noise and I tell myself that it was traffic noise from outside or that all old buildings make strange noises at times, that's true isn't it? Please tell me it's true!
