Before we even talk about the crazy coincidence described here, we have to acknowledge the fact that this story is from a time when people listened to music using tapes!
Yes, this is an old story, but the fact it was etched in this person’s mind all these years just means it really left an impression. What are the odds the same song would be playing? And at the exact same second, no less!
New Place, Old Friend
Being an army kid can be rough, yet this was the life of this Redditor, moving from place to place every couple of years. After his father retired the family settled in Kentucky.
What is the chance you'd learn that someone who is a good friend of yours in Kentucky used to be in the same grade as you in Hawaii? This only means one thing if you ask us — this friendship was just meant to be.
A Miracle Charm
This Reddit user tells that her grandparents loved to travel and bring back special souvenirs. One time they brought all the girls in the family a personalized necklace from Israel.
When she lost it, she was heartbroken, but weeks later, she accidentally found it! She must have felt so lucky, just when thought all hope was lost, the charm reappeared. From that day on, she decided to keep the charm in a box, so as to not test her luck again.
When in Rota
There's nothing weirder and funnier than running into someone who lives right next to you 1000 miles away from home. Still, that is what has happened to this Texan, who met his next-door neighbors in Spain.
They didn't even see each other in a big city like Barcelona or Madrid but in the small town of Rota. If the two hungry friends had decided to eat pizza instead of burgers, they would have never known the neighbors were there.
This is one of the wildest stories we've ever heard. This Redditor tells that suddenly, as he was getting mugged, the muggers ran away, but he had no idea why.
When he met the British couple they told him about a guy who was saved by a shopkeeper who hit the muggers on the head. The couple and this guy realized they were both on the same street at the same time! The user who posted this story added "What are the odds of randomly meeting up on a beach in Thailand a year later? " and we totally agree.
