The truth is...
Most everyone was sketchy that day because they were sub consciously worried about being fooled and/or pranked, which is an insult to the conscious of an involved person taking life seriously.
Probably because, it had happened numerous times on that particular day for their entire lives, yet they do not bring attention to it.
Carry on, grasshopper..

Tun / Retreat
The tranquil Mountain towers overhead, yet remains this side of Heaven:
The Superior Person avoids the petty and superficial by keeping shallow men at a distance, not in anger but with dignity.
Such a retreat sweeps the path clear to Success.
Occupy yourself with minute detail.
Retreat in this instance is not a desperate flight in disarray, but a conscious choice to distance yourself from forces that would rob you of your peace.
It is not a surrender, but a regrouping.
Retreat from this conflict is actually an advance toward your own center.'
Seek the center, champions of Justice, courage, wisdom, strength, faith, compassion, love. I'll meet you there. I'll be the Aries waving a banner.

Yup, I did. On the morning of April 1, I received a phone call from my parent's neighbor. She said. "Your parent's house is on fire, please come quick! I ask her how on earth could this be possible and, when she couldn’t explain it, I suggested that she lay off the wine. I hung up the phone and, within a few minutes, she called back. She said. "I can see people dancing, it looks like their having a party". Her voice sounded horrible and it disturbed me terribly. I told her I'd be right over and to call the fire department.
My parent's passed away six months ago and we're still trying to sell their house. So I thought someone had broken into my parents' house and, in the process of striping the copper wire from the walls, started the house on fire.
As I turn onto my parents street I can see right away that house wasn't on fire. By now I was getting pissed , thinking my parents neighbor was playing silly tricks on me when I had an important television show to watch. I stormed next door to ask her why she had called me—and discovered that she wasn't even home!
I went back to my car and grabbed my gun and searched the entire house without finding any burglars—or any evidence of a fire. More terrified than ever, I refused to go home until she returned.
I'd still be sitting outside her house if my sister hadn't called me and told me the neighbor died three weeks ago. I'm glad I came across your post. I thought I was the only one.

By allowing the edge of your perspective to be shaped by anyone other than yourself also allows these people the ability to guide that perspective. More friction on one side will cause a directional change.
When one is at least aware of those boundaries, we can feel and perceive when that friction is applied. However, most have been programed otherwise, and float like leaves on the wind.

No need to apologize... I just spent the last few days sort of question everyone on that. From whence comes the assumption that one must feel happy? Or that if they don't there is something wrong that must be changed?
I guess that falls into what you are saying, to an extent. If one imagines that a person can be programmed or influenced to have the base belief they must feel happy, and that happiness comes through certain things or situations (to have money, to feel "free", to be able to buy certain objects....) then they can be manipulated along the desires of another.
I just have a tendency to question everything, even within myself.
Perhaps times of unhappiness is normal or healthy, and simply part of other processes (like change- all changes mean and end or death of something ).

The only energies I felt on that Wednesday was very positive for me, since I quit my stagnant warehouse job the day after...It could been one my bosses being angry at someone ...Lol.
What it feel like, the idea of impending darkness from within or something? Like a slow, but chaotic feeling that eventually just subsided peacefully?
