Default Crazy story.

Okay so my dad has a 1996 chevy work van with a 350 and like 220000 miles. Today I was leaving for work, and I walk outside and I hear a loud repetitive clicking. I assumed it was the garage door acting up or something so I walk over there to check it out, and the sound is coming from my dads van, I get closer and its the starter clicking over and over. No one is in it, the keys arent in it, and im creeped out. It wasnt clicking when I was outside about an hour ago. So I go get the keys and when I turn the key on, it stops, when I try to crank it, it just clicks. I turn the key off and the clicking continues. At this point im laughing at how dumb this is. So I disconnect the battery and go on my way. Anyone heard of this happening before? Im not really looking for help, just wanted to share my story.

Solenoid might be dead, or the battery is dead. My Bronco did that once.
