Hello ATS Members,
I would like to share 2 incidents that happened to me a while back. ( I'm 32 years old now) The first incident happened when I was 19 and the second
happened when I was 22. I have told this story to my husband and many friends and thankfully they never thought I was crazy, but unfortunately they
never had an explanation for me either.
I was 19 yrs. old. I was at the library, which was only 3 blocks away from our building and stayed too long when I suddenly remembered that I had
promised to help my mother with lunch and hurried home. Now I need to paint a picture of our old building. It had 5 floors- we lived on the 4th floor-
And the elevator was so slow and old that I usually took the stairs instead. Every floor's door to the view of the indoor yard was different. (One
had potted plants next to it, the other was dark brown, etc.)The building had an indoor yard, so every time when I had reached a floor I would see an
open door with a view to the yard. Something like this:
So here's the weird part: I'm in a hurry and running upstairs, and am expecting to see the 1st floor door with the potted plants and look up and am
on the 5th floor! In spite of being in good shape, running up 5 floors would make anyone try to catch their breath and I was completely fine, not
tired, not out of breath just on the darn 5th floor and had no idea how I got there. I was so confused, I walked back downstairs to the 4th floor
where we lived and tried to forget about it. And there is no way I could run up 5 floors in 5 seconds, it's just impossible. And why was I on the 5th
floor? I don't live there, we lived on the 4th. And another strange feeling I had was that if there were more floors I wouldn't have stopped at 5.
I was 22 years old. It was winter and I had finished teaching for the day(I taught nursery) and our school was on a remote place up on a hill. I had
to walk all the way down the road to reach the bus stop, which was an about 6 minute walk. I was not going to make it to the bus stop in time because
it left at 4:15 and it was already 4:14 but I thought if I walk really fast (couldn't run, was wearing heals) and if the bus is late I might get
So I remember walking in a hurry through the school's gate, and I looked down for just a moment to check the money I had in my hand, and when I
looked up I was walking past the bus stop!!! I checked my watch and it was still 4:14. I managed to make a 6 minute walk in a few seconds. Again, no
shortness of breath or anything, just feeling really confused. The bus came,and I went home.
I do not believe I was abducted by aliens, even though some of my friends say that must have been the case. I really don't believe that. I was hoping
that someone here on ATS could come up with another explanation.
Both incidents happened when I was feeling that I was in need of more time, and I was in a real hurry. And I do not take drugs, I am healthy and do
not take any medications, besides the occasional beer on TGIF once a week.
If anyone has had this same or similar experience please let me know.
Please let me know what you guys think.
