This story originally took place around January 2013 while I was living in a temporary house, while my other house was being repaired. The scenario that occurred would happen many times after I originally noticed it. It wouldn’t happen every night, definitely happened at least once every week though.
I would be laying in my bed at night, attempting to fall asleep, and the room is dead silent. Suddenly, I’d hear a crinkling noise coming from my garbage can. The sound was loud and sounded as if someone put their hand in the can and just squeezed trash repeatedly; the sound was way noisier and persistent than merely a plastic wrapper falling onto other pieces of trash.
