This is a question Spoooky Coincidence

B3ta's very own Fraser was once a cycle courier. On one job out to docklands his radio gave out, so he had to find a public phonebox to ring back to base.

He'd just located one when it began to ring. Picking it up, it was (obviously) a wrong number, but Fraser recognised the voice. Turned out it was a mate of his he hadn't seen for ages.

What spoooky* coincidences have you encountered?

* spoooky should always have three o's. 100% fact

Valentine's Day stalkers
This happened just... well, this Valentine's...

My boyfriend and I decided to go out into the city (we don't get out much together) and jumped on a tram to get to somewhere we couldn't be bothered walking. By this time, I was a little tired, so I rested my head on the window and looked out. Spotted a couple walking down the street holding a picnic basket. Remembered that was our original plan, pointed it out to Scott and sai it was "cute". Thought that was that.

An hour later, we got back on a tram after finding out where we had ben trying to go was closed. We get about halfway, which is still a fair way from where I saw this couple, and they got on the tram and stood right in front of us.

Thought that was a weird coincidence, so we laughed it off and went on our merry way.
Two hours later, we were compltely over the other side of the city, nowhere near where we'd been all day.Who shows up and sits on a bench a few metres away from where we were? Freaky Picnic Couple.

By now we're getting scared, right? Are they stalking us? What was it they had in that bloody basket? why the hell do I keep using italics?

We almost ran away. We just went home and tried to forget about the experience. Thought nothing of it, until...

The girl showed up at my house today. She lives in my area and her car had broken down outside my house. I helped her as best I could, and couldn't help but ask her if she'd been in the city with her "man" the other day. She gave me the strangest look, and it dawned on her. All day they'd been thinking we were "stalking" them, since she'd noticed me staring out the tram window and pointing at them.
She got in her car and threatened to call the police on me, the bitch.

Sorry, is 'white charger' similar to 'white discharge'? If so, I can help you there.

i'm sure most girls on here will agree that it's v disappointing when looking forward to unleashing a wild stallion only to find a tame pony curled up asleep in the straw...

so many b3tans have gazzed or posted to say they have suits of armour that i am quite surprised - where do you all get them from? and is this a guy thing, or is it another spooooky coincidence?!

Deja vu
I wrote a post yesterday saying that by this point we'd all be utterly sick of this QOTW. And here I am saying it again.

Spooooooooky connection
I employed a lovely girl to work for me, we got on fabulously and had lots of fun every day and became best bum chums, anyways, after a year or so I happened to forward a joke email she sent me to my mum.

My mum replied and said that her surname was familiar and did she have any relatives called Bobby or Lorraine? When I asked said lovely friend if she knew someone called Bobby or Lorraine she said yes, her dad was called Bobby and her aunt was Lorraine...

Turns out that her aunt was my mums old best friend from school and that her dad and aunt and gran lived below my mum and her family when they were kids...

I found it even odder when a few weeks ago she bought in a photo of people at a party and there I was at 8 years old sitting on my mums lap next to her aunt! Not only could I not remember ever meeting her aunt, I definitely could not recall going to this party! Its a small, small world!

P.S if you are reading this hello Strumpet!x
P.P.S Sorry for length but definitely a story that is spoooky!

Just so this can be a coincidence:

Now I feel guilt about my post.

Or is it my hangover kicking in properly?

'how did Norah Jones get so much angst?'

I once rhetorically asked a similar question about the lead singer of Korn: "he's a fuckin millionaire who's paid to pursue his hobby, what's he got to be so angsty about?"

my friend: "he was abused as a child."

me: "oh."
me: "sorry."

so - it may not be as funny as you think.

I could have sworn you'd ridden a white pony at the weekend.

Norah Jones
I've got her first Album (I'm not proud) - I've heard her new one sounds just the same.


She should name her album "songs to kill yourself to" - how does one so young get so much angst?

Size - feckin' hooge :o)

A small world
Back at the tail-end of the eighties I played in an early music group (all farthingales and crumhorns) based in Sheffield.
We played at the Scarborough Fair one summer and while doing a street gig an aussie came up to us and said he owned a hotel at Scarborough Beach near Perth, WA and would we like to go and play there. Yeah right.
Turned out to be genuine and we ended up with 4 weeks in Oz, all expenses paid including Club Class flights and posh hotel (and cash too). How good was that!
The coincidence bit was that as we were playing in the hotel this couple came up to us and told us they had seen us play the previous week in Sheffield!
The world doesn't get much smaller than that!

Well that is a spoooky coincidence.

I do have a suit of armour.

I did have a big white stallion but some bastard painted "I AM A CUNT HORSE" on it, and it died of shame.
