Having been in business for 18 years I have loads of scary stories. Even a few death threats. After I refused (nicely) to take a guy’s book, he said he was going to “severe my head” turns out the guy was a brain surgeon at a prominent hospital. My then boyfriend (this was years ago) said: “Well I guess he’d know about that head severing thing.” Nice.
I’ve also had someone tell me they wanted to work with me because I was a “star child” – and apparently star children are sent to earth to help prevent alien attacks. According to this author, they live under the crust of the earth. Who knew?
I have ghost stories, when I worked with a psychic (she used to have a TV show in New Jersey) and we did a gathering in a local haunted house. It’s a bit longer – if you want to hear about this one let me know.
I have more – crazy/scary stuff. Being in business is not for the faint of heart. Happy Halloween!
