67 Not Out Readers Coincidence Stories

Funny Facebook road sign

A couple of coincidence stories via 67 Not Out readers - nothing too dramatic, but the sort of thing that seems to happen more and more once you start getting into the world of coincidences or synchronicity.

This is not an earth-shattering coincidence but I thought it was kind of funny.

A few years ago I was dating someone who was causing me a lot of stress and wasn't particularly good for me. He had recently left for a long trip in Europe and I was stuck at home obsessing about 'us'.

One day, I was walking along in a neighbourhood I'd never ever been in before and was just going along, thinking about this guy I was dating. I was obsessively ruminating about him and our relationship and analysing every detail and then suddenly, I just said to myself,'enough, enough, I don't want to think about this guy any more! Just stop thinking about this guy! That's it, just get this guy out of my mind'

And, then I felt some relief and continued on my walk. Then - and keep in mind I was in a strange neighbourhood - I took two more steps, looked up at the street sign on the street I was crossing. The street name was the same as the last name of the guy I was dating!

I just started laughing so hard and yelled out loud at the sky 'very funny!'. Here I was trying to get him out of my mind and then I see this sign with his name emblazoned across it.

In a Science lesson today at school someone was talking about the chances of the fire bell ringing during an exam. Then a big coincidence happened: the fire bell rang! It's got to be one of the biggest coincidences I've ever experienced.
