I am so freaked when . . . .
I didnt' notice a thread for this, and thought it high time we had one :)
I live in one of the many apartment buildings in Manhattan. I am on an upper level floor, however the acoustics are such that if someone is standing on the sidewalk below in just the right spot, it sounds like they are standing in my bedroom talking - I can hear every single word. i have lived in this apartment for over 5 years, but there are still some times when I'm half asleep and hear a man talking, and it sounds like he's next to my bed, and I just sit straight up with my heart racing! It got me again last night, because 'the voice' was talking to someone saying things like 'you look really tired, let's go to bed' and I groggily thought there was some guy in my room.
