Someone on Ask Reddit asked users "What's something you're pretty sure has only happened to you?" and the answers people gave might leave you agog. Like, you know that story about the mom who discovered her twins had two different fathers? That's happened to at least 10 people. This stuff is weirder. Please enjoy.
1. When the conversation turns to bad landlord stories, GTBlues wins.
Was reading a book about a serial killer. Turned over the page to see a picture of MY house. The serial killer was my former landlord.
eta: He was the most prolific serial killer in recorded history. At the time I rented his (former childhood) home from him, he wasn't known to be a murderer. I didn't know him personally, it was through an estate agent.
The poop hit the fan about 2 years after I left that house. I was sitting in my new home reading a book about him and just saw the picture of my former home. He was born and raised there and both of his parents died in the kitchen and living room there. He left at 17 to go to medical school in Leeds.
edit: about 250 victims. The book was Prescription For Murder by Brian Whittle and Jean Ritchie.
2. That's called a boomerang, rumdiary.
I grew up in Australia until 1998, then my family (and me) moved to the UK.
13 years later me and my wife were on the last day of our honeymoon in Venice and I bumped into my best friend from High School in Australia. First time I'd seen him in 13 years. He was on the first day of his honeymoon with his wife.
