The article relates the stories of several people regarding their experiences with ghosts in their respective workplaces. One story is about a security guard in the Tower of London, England who saw a figure coming towards him. It was night time and he thought it was an intruder. He charged at the figure with his bayonet. However, he plunged straight through it, hitting the wall behind, for the figure turned out to be one of the tower's ghosts. The guard was found unconscious and was court-martialled for neglecting his post.
