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

Post office coincidence
When I was a student we had to go and visit the big post office in London to see how it worked. On the way my friend posted a letter to her mate.

During the incredibly exciting tour around the post office we were shown the sorting area where there were about 6 or 7 giant mail sorters - look a bit like massive cement mixers, with thousands of letters in them.

At one point the lady giving the tour put her hand into one of sorters and pulled out a letter. Yeah, you guessed it - it was my friend's letter! Same hand writing, same address everything. It was only an hour after she posted it so must have been picked up pretty much straight after we left. It was pretty unbelieveable.

She also told us the sorting machines can only read 2nd class stamps, so if you put lots of little stamps on your letter up to the value of 2nd class it will automatically go first class.
