Haunted Apartment

Hello, I have a few stories of some strange things that have happened and that I have been around to experience myself.

A few years ago, my friend and her two daughters lived in this really run down apartment. The two girls wouldn't even let you leave them in a room alone. One said that she saw people in her room at night while she was trying to sleep. My friend and I at first thought these were just the imaginations of kids, until we experienced some things first hand.

One night I was babysitting for her. I was standing in her kitchen, doing up the dishes, when I felt someone come up behind me and pinch/tickle my sides. I turned around, ready to yell at the kid for getting out of bed, but no one was there. I went in their room, and they were both asleep. I blew it off, thinking it was my imagination.

A couple weeks later my friends two daughters went to visit their dad for a couple weeks. My friend and I got into the habit of going for late night drives. I know for sure that before we left, I turned off her living room light. Because she had a porky pig light switch that when flipped, it said g-g-goood night folks. I loved messing with it. When we returned to her apartment a few hours later the living room light was on.

We were pretty freaked out. So we called my sister, who along with her boyfriend at the time, were complete skeptics and were quite annoyed that we wanted them to come over. My friend and I told them what happened when they got there. My sister's boyfriend looked around the apartment, making sure it was safe. My sister and I argued about how I must have just thought I turned the light off, and really didn't. We were in the middle of an argument, when suddenly, the TV flipped on. We all stopped yelling and looked at each other. None of us had even gone near the remote. Needless to say, we got out of there as fast as we could.
