This situation was something I did post about very briefly when the epic ME thread started but I think I should put it here also as it was such a mind
f#ck at the time..
So the story goes,
In about 2010 I was working in a Public industry, I was trained and everything was ticked off for me to begin working, The start of my day was to head
into our operations room and touch in with a round key sensor to show I was there, I guess like a time card of old..
The second faze was to use a plastic module that was put into a machine that then needed a 7 digit code (My personal code it never changed) to in put
to get a download of information for me to then eject the module and head off for the days shift..
Now anyone that has done similar will tell you after a brief time you totally stop looking at the numbers and simply in put the code in a pattern,
similar to predictive txt on a phone, after a while you know how many presses bring up certain words..
The key pad was always
So anyway I start this particular shift and do everything as I had done the same for the previous months only when I in put my code I got a rejected
sound, ok try again I thought, same thing..
I then looked at what my 7 digit code was to make sure I was not having a "moment" and to my utter dismay the key pad on the machine had changed to
The thing was the machine was worn, it was even more weird when 95% of the other people I spoke with had no idea what I was talking about when I said
the numbers where different, BUT!!!!! There was a tiny percentage that did notice that the numbers had changed and they had to re check there own
codes and came to the same conclusion I had, (The numbers had reversed)..
I know that there is a lot of BS regarding this subject and a lot of it is people looking for any tit bit they can hang onto, but this situation was
long before the theory was known or at least years before I had heard about it. I cannot for the life of me understand how it happened, I would point
out from that moment every machine I used (There where others out in the field as it where) that all had the numbers reversed and all where typical
old machines, I had to in put this code 2-3 times every day to gain information in what was 100's of machines that where availiable, but the whole lot
So there, my little bit to add to the whole crazy theory, I think with numbers and patterns it stands out so much more as it was totally wrong to what
I was use to and my old in put pattern proved that. Just mega weird that only a handful of others noticed the same..
