Most of us have encountered at least one stranger who left a lasting impression on us - for better or worse.
Sometimes all it takes is a moment of intense eye contact, a few brief words, or a bizarre shared experience with a stranger in order for them to have a permanent place in your memory. The shroud of mystery around these moments immortalize them even more in our brains.
In a popular Reddit thread, people shared stories of the strangers they still regularly think about.
1986. A year after graduating from a tiny college on Idaho, I was at Disneyland with a high school buddy. I was totally convinced that I saw a college friend, Adam, in line at Pirates of the Caribbean. I kept waving at him, but he looked at me like I was out of my mind. My high school friend tried to talk me down, saying that “Adam” clearly had no idea who I was...it’s not him...everyone has a twin...yada, yada, yada.
