This is my first thread, so please forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere...I searched and did not find anything specifically pertaining to
this subject, so here goes:
A while back, I posted in a thread here that was discussing strange power outages in multiple different areas around the world occuring within the
We too had been experiencing strange power cuts, electronics malfunctioning, lightbulbs burning out at an extraordinary rate and the activity
continues to this day and it's not just in our apartment either; people I go to school with are constantly reporting electrical weirdness ocurring in
their homes as well. The thing that struck me though was the post from mikemck1976 in Ohio who said that in addition to having a strange electrical
issue, he also mysteriously found a peanut butter sandwich on his kitchen floor. I swear my heart actually stopped for a second when I read that.
My husband and I moved into this apartment last October and shortly after that we began experiencing all kinds of weird and baffling events. I know
that everyone loses things or misplaces them from time to time and I think just about everyone has put things in bizarre places while distracted (like
accidentally putting the cereal in the fridge or something silly), and I am the Queen of Blonde Moments in our house, I admit it. But this has taken
weirdness to a whole new level and I am wondering if this is happening to more than just a few people, and where, and for how long they have been
At first it was annoying, knowing that you put something in a certain place and it having vanished into apparent thin air when you go to get it again.
Keys, hair brushes, pens, business cards, lip gloss...small things like that began to go missing on a pretty routine basis about two weeks after we
moved in. The suck factor increased exponentially when the missing objects were never accounted for, and we seriously started wondering if someone
was actually breaking into our apartment when we were gone or while we were asleep. It became unnerving when things vanished within moments of
setting them down somewhere, literally almost before our eyes.
So basically when I read this thread, I really started freaking out because we had food come up missing from our refrigerator on more than one
occasion and our neighbor found a piece of dried up garlic bread sitting on top of her freshly folded laundry, and neither she nor her husband have
eaten bread in years
. It scared her so badly that she bought St. Christopher candles and burned them every day. The first missing food item
we had was an unopened package of cheddar cheese. We had gone to the store and bought cheese and other staple stuff and my husband helped me put
everything away, so I know it was in there, but when I went to pull it out later it had disappeared. We took everything out of the fridge, I mean
, and pulled out the crisper drawer but the cheese had vanished. We told our neighbor about it and she turned white as a sheet and
told us about the bread she found. I immediately got goosebumps all over my body.
Over the past several months we have continued to find things missing and it has been predominately food from the cabinets and the fridge. Usually I
can blow it off and put it out of my mind, although it irks me to no end and kind of frightens me as well, but it happened again yesterday and this
morning something else ocurred which chilled us to the bone.
I had two snack packs of M&M's in the freezer and I took them into the computer room night before last. I opened one, ate about a third of the candy
and then left it, along with the unopened pack, on the desk and went to bed. Yesterday when I came in here to clean up, the unopened pack was gone.
At first I figured my husband ate them, so I didn't really think anything of it. I propped the open pack against the monitor so they wouldn't spill
out, and forgot about it. Later in the day I went back in there and the open pack was laying on its side about 2 feet from where I had placed it. I
mentioned it to my husband and he then informed me that he had not touched the missing unopened pack. I looked everywhere for it, moved the furniture
out and everything....no M&M's to be found. I told my husband repeatedly that this REALLY upsets me and I can't get it out of my mind.
So this morning, we're sitting at the table having coffee and I had just swept and mopped the kitchen floor. I am a thorough sweeper; under the
fridge, behind doors, etc. The floor was pristine
. I glance over and see our cat sniffing at something on the floor. It's small and white,
and I think maybe it's a boric acid tab that we place down to ward off bugs, so I ask my husband to see what it is. He walks over, picks it up, and
goes "what the HELL is this???" He brings it to me and it is a miniature marshmallow. We do not own any marshmallows, miniature or otherwise. I
take it in my hand and it is a fresh, squishy soft mini marshmallow. I can even smell it, it's so fresh. I go, "are you %u#$ing kidding
right now???" I had looked at the floor at least ten times prior to that and it was shiny clean and bare. So now we are BOTH freaked out. And want
So I tried to research this, but Google is not my friend today. I could only find one site that had anything involving food disappearing, but there
are several really interesting accounts posted on it so I am including a link. I would really love to hear what you all think could be happening and
whether or not any more of you have experienced things like we have in the past 6 months or so.
