Haunted houses are a bit of a love-them-or-hate-them kinda thing. Some people simply jump at the chance to spend their hard-earned money on being made to feel alone, terrified and moments away from having an *accident*. Others do not wish to do that. But whatever your stance, there’s no denying that some of these real-life stories – submitted by Reddit users who’ve worked in some form of haunted house or experience – really take the edge off the scare factor and are actually just plain funny. Enjoy … VikingRabies: “I was a talking head on a table. A group of five people led by a girl comes into my room and when they get close to me I say ‘hello’ fairly nonchalantly. “The girl in front screams and falls backwards with a domino effect taking everyone else in her group with her. I became a laughing head on a table.” Darrenyankj: “Was a faceless hood trying to scare people from behind the curtains, but didn’t hear them approaching, so I didn’t manage to pop out to scare them. “They pulled open the curtains and asked me which way the exit was. It was both humiliating and amusing.” Everybodysheardabout: “I helped out with family-friendly Halloween walk a few years back, mostly involved sitting in a bush and letting some of the kids walk a little passed me before making some kind of sound in the middle of the group. “However for the parents I would always moan ‘university costs are rising – oooooOOOoooOoo!’”
