The Very Hungry Ghost

Haunted Hallway

 

A young business man was delayed in his travels one evening and had to spend the night unexpectedly. He went to the only hotel in town and inquired about a room for the evening.

“I’m sorry, sir,” said the desk clerk, “I have only one room left in the whole hotel. But you don’t want it; it’s haunted!”

The young business man assured the desk clerk that he didn’t believe in ghosts and would rent the room. After the young business man had crawled into bed and turned out the light he lay there thinking about the ghost. He reminded himself that he didn’t believe in ghosts and rolled over to go to sleep.

A little after midnight, the young business man heard the bathroom door creak open. Frightened, he closed his eyes tightly. Then he heard someone moving around his room. Terrified, he put his head under the pillow.

The ghost started crying:
“I’m hungry! I’m so hungry!”

Upon hearing this, the young business man screamed, jumped out of bed and ran from the hotel.

A few weeks later a woman arrived at the hotel very late. Again, all the rooms were full except for the haunted room.

“I’m not afraid of ghosts!” the woman announced to the desk clerk and went up the stairs to her room.

Just after she went to bed, the woman heard the bathroom door creak open. The woman froze looking up at the ceiling. Then she heard someone moving around the room. She held her breath.

The ghost started crying:
“I’m hungry! I’m so hungry!”

The woman took one look at the ghost and ran.

The very next night a rock and roll band arrived at the hotel. The band members filled every available room at the hotel until only the haunted room was empty. Long after the rest of the band was asleep, the drummer arrived at the front desk.

Again the desk clerk explained about the haunted room. The drummer said he had no issues with ghosts.

The drummer headed up the stairs to the haunted room and promptly fell asleep. A little after midnight, the bathroom door creaked open. Then the ghost started to move around the room. Finally the ghost started crying: “I’m hungry! I’m so hungry!”

The drummer opened his eyes, took one look at the ghost and said, “Knock it off! Just order room service!”
