I was six, maybe seven years old when this happened. My family had just gotten back from visiting my aunt’s house. My cousins were watching a scary movie in the basement, and even though my parents said I would get scared, I snuck downstairs and watched some of it. I don’t remember what part I saw, but there were little monsters with teeth that would eat people in their sleep.

When we left for home it was dark outside and my parents scolded me for watching that movie. I secretly hoped they would keep scolding me, because I was feeling sleepy and didn’t want those things to eat me. We got home fine and my parents even managed to calm me down enough to the point where when my bedtime came around I could go to sleep.

I fell asleep almost immediately and slept pretty well. I woke up sometime during the night. Knowing where everything is in my house I didn’t turn the lights on, but instead used the street light coming in the windows. I went to the bathroom and then got a glass of water. As I was putting the glass in the dishwasher, something pricked my hand. I pulled my hand back and switched on the lights, but there was nothing in the dishwasher.

I looked at my hand and it had four little indents on the top and bottom where something had broken through the skin. Since that day I’ve had little bumps on my skin where the marks were, and I always remember to turn the lights on.

Remember To Turn The Lights On, 6.6 out of 10 based on 134 ratings

    Good beginning, sets up a potentially intense ending, but without the detail of what the monsters do, the ending felt a bit random. Also, what’s with the little bumps at the end? This really felt like another bit of creepypasta that started out good and then went sour by the end because of bad planning.

    The “but who was phone” meme used to be funny, but after reading it in virtually every comment section of this site, I’ve grown to hate it. IT’S NOT FUNNY IF YOU USE IT FOR EVERY VAUGLY MYSTERIOUS STORY!!!

    So you watched Gremlins and started imagining they were biting you until it became real. Big whoop. That was terrible.

    I actually had this happen to me and wondering if this actually happened and who it happened to. I still have the scars on my left hand from where 2 bottom and 2 top teeth bit me a few times in the dark, when I had my hand between the mattress and the floor. No bed post just mattress on the floor. Bloody mess went to the hospital. No answers from anyone just a lot of quite from adults.

    I thought you had to be asleep to get eaten.
    Did you fall asleep at the dishwasher?
