What's a strange coincidence that has thrown you?

    Today I had a phone call at work from someone with a very familiar name and accent. It freaked me out till I realized I didn't actually know this person.

    What is a strange coincidence that has happened to you and surprised you?

    A couple of weeks ago I discovered that hubber Ryankett lives a five minute walk away from my house...that was quite an unlikely coincidence, I thought.

        Well I haven't actually met him yet, though hopefully will do. Though can't help wondering whether I have already, only not realised, esp. as I have spent a considerable amount of time working in 2 very local pubs, albeit not recently.

        Don't think I would want to bombard him for information though....but does make me think that even in the international environment of the internet, the world is actually very small!

    I have had too many to count and all of them very strange. My best friend in HS and I both attended a Tori Amos concert long before we ever met. I was telling her about when I went as it was my first ever and I screamed 'I love you Tori' and she said 'thank you' and everyone in the theater laughed. My friend at that point said, hey I remember you now! I was in the audience too. We didn't know each other then but became best friends and attended many a concert for the goddess Tori Amos after.

    I go on a lot of these seminars for like internet marketing and such. The first one I went to was a Tony Robbins one, wealth mastery, and I kept asking all these questions and getting frustrated that I wasn't getting what they were teaching, they even had frustration is the sign of a break through (wrong! break down is more like). Anyway a few years later I got to go on one for this guy Mark Anastasi and he told his story, going from broke and in debt and homeless to earning £1000's a month and it was wealth mastery that turned him around. I go up to him later and tell him I was on one of those seminars and my experience, and guess what, he remembered me from it (we both had been there). I am still waiting on the £1000's a month but then again I don't sell get rich quick products (I have nothing against some of these guys, Mark for instance is really nice, but I think they sometimes are making their money with get rich quick schemes and I will only do that once I actually am rich ya know).

    My OH is a freemason.  Some years ago he got promoted to provincial honours, which would have meant spending £££ on new regalia.  This was £££ we didn't have. 

    At the time, I was doing home computer tuition and a lady rang up asking whether I could come out to her.  It was a bit further than I was normally prepared to travel but something made me say yes.

    When I got there we spent a couple of hours and as I was on the point of leaving, I noticed a photo of a man wearing Masonic regalia.  "Is that your husband?" I asked.  "Yes", she said.  "He died a couple of months ago."  I said how sorry I was and on a whim, asked what regalia he was wearing.  "Oh, that's his provincial lodge regalia.  I've still got it in the loft, and I don't know what to do with it."

    I told her about my OH's recent promotion and she said I could have her husband's regalia in lieu of payment.  This was quite  a good bargain, as it would have been worth a lot more new than what I would have charged her in fees!

    Lost contact with a dear friend a year ago.  Couldn't find him anywhere...he vanished.  I've been thinking a lot about him the past two weeks, when low and behold, he contacted me the other day.  I was ecstatic and so was he.  Turns out, something bad had happened and was unable to communicate to anyone that he needed help. Ah, happy endings. smile
