    Text - HalloweenPunkin83 3.7k points 1 day ago edited Right after moving I was in a car accident on the freeway during rush hour. Backend of my car was crunched. While it was sitting in the parking lot of a collision center waiting to be repaired, a semi backed into the front end. The collision center was right next to a trucking company. When my husband called to tell me what had happened I thought he was joking.

    Text - InfestedFistula 3.4k points 23 hours ago Obligatory not me, but my mother in law.She claims she is cursed and ends up in the hospital every April 1st, without fail. It started when she was a child, and every year something different gets her - a dog mauling her, a car accident, the balcony security rail giving out and making her fall down 3 stories, numerous wounds from other people's April Fool pranks going wrong, etc. She even has a bunch of scars, and she can tell you which April First

    Text - EatsAtomsRegularly 1.1k points 23 hours ago The building I work in has two one-person bathrooms. In between them, the wall is set back few feet from the rest of the hallway. In that gap is a water fountain. A couple of months ago, I went to the drinking fountain to fill up my water bottle. Except there was no water fountain. The wall between the bathroom doors was completely filled in. I walked away from it, looked around the hallway, and then walked back to the area where the drinking fo

    Text - Spookyscary333 516 points 1 day ago Cut off contact with a horrible ex around May of this year and last week I finally decided to clear all of her shit out of my car. Some clothes and random junk. Got it all bagged up and tossed out. The very next day I turned a corner at the store and there she was. I haven't seen or spoken to her in six months and the day after I try to remove items that remind me of her I almost run right into her.

    Text - all4whatnot 441 points 1 day ago I've had three instances in my life where I've gotten decent raises at work, gotten home to share the news with my wife to find out she's accepted a new position at a new job for less money or decided to change careers that will require her to quit work all together. Like within days of making a little extra money we take a large financial hit. But she's the love of my life and she's doing what she wants now. So it's all good!

    Text - WagenD 392 points 23 hours ago This will seriously fuck your mind up. I was sitting besides my friend on the couch who was downloading tinder and to help him set up his account. As soon as it downloads, some apps like tinder send you an SMS verification code. Our country has 6 digits in the phone number, tinder sends you a 6 digits verification code. Can you see where this is going? Yeah me neither i didn't see it coming but I shit you not, here I was, sitting on the couch, dumbfounded by

    Text - MichaelSaurus85 351 points 1 day ago edited 22 It was my birthday weekend. I helped someone jump start their car in the morning. Later on, LA has the most rain it's had in 6 years, the storm drain near my house get backed up. My house gets flooded, and was the only one on the block to be affected.

    Text - S4 CaptainWisconsin 8.1k points 1 day ago edited 19 hours ago Back when I was a kid, I borrowed a CD of my dad's without asking, and it ended up becoming lost. We looked everywhere, but it was never found. It was a very unique CD and couldn't be replaced. Dad scolded me, but worse, as only a dad can do, he would tease me about it (example: we'd be riding in the car and he'd sarcastically say "Boy, it'd sure be nice to listen to that CD! I wonder where it could be?!"). He never forgot, and
