With all of this talk about doomsday and how much everything these days sucks, I thought it'd be fun to start a more lighthearted and humorous
thread... Have you ever been completely sure you saw a UFO, or something similar, only to be completely debunked and humiliated? Let's post our most
embarrassing UFO sighting stories. The sillier the better. I'll start with one...
A couple of years ago I was living with a friend of mine in the midwest. We were sharing a 2 bedroom apartment on the side of a hill that overlooked
the city. We had a balcony off of the living room that offered a spectacular view. We often sat out there on clear nights, smoking cigarettes and
swapping stories and conspiracy theories. I would be lying if I said we weren't frequently **SNIP**. One night out on the balcony we spotted a bright,
unflinching light in the sky. It was directly infront of us. The light didn't twinkle at all, and was unusually bright and large. It started to get
bigger and bigger and we asserted that it was coming right for us. It was so low in the sky. "THIS IS IT!" I thought, but felt a bit panicked. My
roommate decided to absolutely flip out as we had ruled out the possibility of it being a plane. The next 60 seconds were filled with panic as we were
completely convinced there was an alien spacecraft coming right for us.
"Do something!" my roommate screeched.
"What do you want ME to do??" I asked, unable to keep my eyes off of the glowing object.
It was late at night and in our anxious and excited state, my roommate fled from the apartment. She ran down the stairs to the floor below us and
knocked on the door of the apartment below ours. They also had a balcony with the same view.We had never met them. A young man answered the door, and
my roommate, surely appearing and smelling like a SNIP crazed lunatic, begged him to go out on the balcony and see the UFO.
Unfortunately, by this time, the object had gotten close enough that it was clearly just an airplane flying low over the city.
"Um... it's just a plane" our neighbor told her, not amused.
Needless to say, she was humiliated.
