Hotel guest finds creepy note in a drawer

It isn't clear who wrote the note or what it was that lay behind the door. Image Credit:
Amy Jones discovered a message warning her that there was something sinister behind a locked door.
The journalism student had been staying at a hotel in Edinburgh over the Christmas period when she found the note in a drawer.

"Don't open the locked door! Don't trust its whispers!" the note's author had written before trailing off with "Leave, just lea..."

The door in question happened to be situated directly opposite the bed so that anyone sleeping there couldn't help but see it.
Despite the ominous warning however Jones went on to enjoy a good night's sleep.

"To anyone asking if I'm still alive. Yes. I'm fine," she said. "I slept well and woke a couple of times for a sip of juice. There were no whispers."

Interesting prank. But, I would have been far more impressed if someone had left me a personal note of encouragement ... a lasting legacy of love and respect.

Sometimes i ask my self why do we get news like this, it's not that there is a lack of happenings worldwide so that everything someone finds strange gets to TV or at online news sites. By just looking at style of writing its obviously just a joke, and bad one.

Clearly someone playing a prank. But, that's a great idea for the next time I'm staying in a hotel!

I would have looked but have something in my hand first. I would have screamed bloody murder if someone was hiding.

A prank I love to pull at hotels (and I got this idea from comedian Chris Hardwick), is where when you get out of the shower and the mirror is all fogged up to write "nice boobs!" So that next time when someone showers it will say nice boobs again on the mirror.
