I haven't posted any threads here on ATS in quite sometime, nor do I often have anything interesting happen to me involving a mystery that I want
to share. I will risk the huge amount of ridicule and skepticism to share this incident, as it really has me scratching my head.
Usually on Friday or Saturday nights, I go hang out at my local tavern with a few friends. The tavern has a driver who can be called in order to
safely pick people up and bring them back home, all free of charge. Myself and GF have gotten to be really good friends with the driver over the past
6 years, although my girl friend usually doesn't go out with me. This past Saturday night I called Sherry (the driver) around 8 Pm and let her know I
was ready to be picked up. She let me know that she was a few miles away picking up some other patrons and would be over as soon as she got back
towards my area. She showed up within 20 minutes or so and off we went. Usually once we get to the tavern she will literally "talk my head off'
while I eagerly anticipate getting inside to grab a cold beer. We sat outside in the van for several minutes and she talked about her daughter getting
money stolen from her, and several other things that had happened throughout her week.. I love Sherry to death, but I was, as usual ready to get
inside and do some drinking.
I finally made my way inside and she left shortly to pick up more patrons. I had a great time and later she came back and hung out with me and some
frinds while she waited for more calls to come of patrons needing a ride.
Well the next day as I woke up and grabbed the nearest OTC painkiller and made my way to the kitchen to grab a bottle of water from my fridge.. My gf
asked me who picked me up last night. I looked at her puzzled and thinking she was accusing me of something, responded with.. You saw Sherry in the
van last night when she arrived to pick me up.. She looked even more confused than I did and let me know about a call she received right after Sherry
had picked me up. According to her. 5 minutes after Sherry had picked me up the phone rang and my gf seeing on the caller ID it was Sherry's phone
number, answered thinking I used Sherry's phone to call home for some reason, but instead it was Sherry's voice. Once my gf answered, Sherry said
hi to her and they briefly talked.... She asked my girl if I was ready yet and that she had just got back to our neighborhood and was almost to our
place. My girl friend confused, told her that I had just been picked up and Sherry said it wasn't by her and was really weirded out.
The strange thing for me is that When Sherry called my gf.. She had just picked me up 5 minutes before that, meaning we were on the road at that very
moment headed towards the bar. Even if it were 10 - 15 minutes after she picked me up, I would have still been sitting in the van BSing with
her about her week.
I am not sure what to think of this...
Would really love hearing your thoughts.. I think.
