4 months ago

Within the rich tapestry of real-life stories, certain tales surpass the confines of imagination, captivating us and prompting contemplation about the essence of reality itself. In this enthralling journey, we immerse ourselves in the fascinating narratives of ten individuals who graciously reveal their personal experiences. Each story is intricately woven with a remarkable plot twist that challenges expectations.

  • My dad passed away in 1997. A couple of years later, I was driving home after a visit with my mom at her house. My wife and two kids were in the car with me. Out of the blue, a scent came into the vehicle. Immediately, I knew what it was but kept quiet. My son who was about 4 at the time spoke out loud, «What is that smell?» My wife looked straight at me and said, «Did you smell that too? That is your father.» © J Em / Quora
  • I went to lunch with friends and saw my husband at the restaurant. I was going to say his name, but he was staring at his phone, so I watched him. He was smiling, typing. Then my phone dinged, and it was a video he forwarded of a dog wrestling with a water hose. This is love© Parkerlawyer / Twitter
  • My best friend’s 5-year-old son stayed with me for a week (my friend and her husband went on holiday). I was pregnant at that time. One evening, after bringing him back home from the park, I was panting walking home. As soon as he got home, he disappeared into the bathroom. I could hear running water, but didn’t think much of it. I thought he was washing his hands (and he takes long). While he was doing his thing, I went to the kitchen to warm up dinner, I saw him pull a chair to the bathroom. Obviously, this wasn’t normal. I followed him to the bathroom, but he asked me not to come in for two minutes. When he finally opened the door, he’s filled the bathtub with hot water, added soap for bubbles, cologne for smell (he probably didn’t realize that soap had smell too). And he’d kept the chair just outside the bath tub, so I could sit and soak my feet in hot water. He said that’s what dad did when his mum was expecting his sibling. It takes away all the pain, he said! © Unknown user / Quora
  • I was eating at Wendy’s when I was approached by Morgan Freeman. He looked me in the eye and said, «No one will ever believe you.» He then grabbed my fries and walked away. © Joe Samson / Quora
  • When I was 5 years old, I was in a restaurant with my mum and brothers when I saw this man across our table. I just couldn’t stop looking at him, thinking to myself that I really knew him. As a 5-year-old kid, I just felt drawn to him. I finally told my mum and I ask her who that man was. When she saw him, she was gobsmacked; he was the obstetrician that had delivered me; basically he was the first face, the first human being I ever saw in the whole world in my whole life. Note that after that moment, my birth, I have never seen him again. But somehow I recognized him! After the first shock, my mum went to talk to him, he remembered my mum as I was the only red hair child he has ever delivered (in Brazil). When we told him what had just happened, he was also amazed and said that he will always tell this story. © Marcia Jones / Quora
  • When my best friend was about 9 years old, she lived with her parents in a small, sleepy village in Austria. One day, she was walking home. As it was lunchtime on a Sunday, all the streets were empty. She was walking down the main street all by herself when she noticed something strange a few blocks down the road: a leopard. My friend was scared stiff. She didn’t dare to run because she didn’t want to attract its attention. And she knew she would never be able to outrun it. So she just stood there motionless. After a while, the leopard turned away and went in another direction. My friend ran home and told her parents, but they thought she had made it up. After all, there are no leopards in Austria. © Nicole Kolisch / Quora
  • I was seeing a guy from Tinder for a couple of months, but it fizzled out, and we stopped talking. Shortly after, I was back on Tinder and matched with a girl (I’m bi) who told me to follow her on Insta. I noticed the Tinder guy also followed her, so I asked how she knows him. She hits me with, «He was dating my best friend for ages, but they broke up a couple of weeks ago because he was hooking up with some girl from Tinder.» © LizzbaWest / Reddit
  • This happened to my aunt in the 80s. She had this weird dream about being abducted and medically tested inside a UFO. The classic alien nightmare. She thought nothing more of it. A few days later, she goes to a routine dentist appointment and gets an x-ray. The dentist shows her the x-ray image and there seems to be something under one of her molars. I saw the x-ray myself and there was what I would guess is a metal rectangular object in there. Anyway, the dentist decides they got to take it out. They make an appointment to do just that, something close to a week later. They finally get to the appointment, and begin. Here’s where it gets weird. They find nothing. The dentists take another x-ray. Nothing. Gone. I saw that x-ray too. Nothing there. Weirder still, she says she had the same dream again two nights before returning to the dentist. © Ian Burelle / Quora
  • After my father died suddenly, I had to clean out his place and dispose of any of his things that we didn’t want to keep. In his things was his cell phone. I got all the contacts out of it and then turned the phone off for the last time and put it in a drawer in my office. I spent that first week sort of in shock and planning for the funeral and settling his estate. At one point, I had wondered why I hadn’t felt that he was around me. About 5 minutes later, my phone rang. Caller ID showed it was my Dad calling from his cell phone number. What!!! I just sat there in shock for a couple of rings, trying to process it. I answered the phone and there was nobody there. I rushed from my house to my office and his phone was still in the drawer and still turned off. © Gordon Miller / Quora
  • My esthetician was giving a Brazilian wax to a new client. The new client goes on and on about this new guy she is dating and the bar he’s working at. Turns out it was the esthetician’s boyfriend. Always fun to find out you are knee-deep in waxing the woman you are being cheated on with. © 248Spacebucks / Reddit
