Has something ever happened in your life that’s just totally unexplainable? Something you still think of to this day and can’t seem to shake?

If you’re not over your life’s “mystery” that will never be solved, you’ll probably enjoy reading about other people’s experiences with this as well. We pulled the best answers from a recent Reddit thread that asked the public this very question.

  1. The Disappearing Screwdriver

    “Dropped a screwdriver in my bedroom, heard it hit the floor, then it just disappeared. I never saw it again. I wasn’t even standing, I was kneeling, so it only fell a few inches. It wasn’t a huge screwdriver, but there aren’t any gaps in my bedroom anywhere that I could find that a screwdriver half the size would fit into.”

  2. The Reappearing Rolex

    “One day I woke up and my Rolex watch was gone from my bedside table, I was gutted, to say the least, it had enormous sentimental value. I searched the house hi and lo…nothing. About 10 months later I went to put some redundant boxes on a shelf that required a ladder and a steady person to foot it. Bear in mind this was a Victorian House with high shelves and these we had NEVER used or could see on. My Rolex was there, and it was still running and on time. Still freaks me out and still freaks out my partner.”

  3. A Citation That Was Already Paid For

    “A few years ago I got a citation, and when I went to pay it off ($350) they told me it was already paid for. Asked everyone I know, no one claimed they did. I don’t think I’ll ever find out who it was.”

  4. Mom’s Possible Groupies

    “My mother died about a dozen years ago. At the funeral home we received a lovely bouquet of flowers with a card from the band The Red Hot Chili Peppers that said “We are saddened to hear of Renate’s passing.” We are a humble family from southern Indiana. There is zero chance she ever had any contact with those boys. Is this something they just randomly do? They would have loved her, though. She was the warmest person you could ever hope to know.”

  5. Hidden Money

    “When I was 12 I was working under the table jobs and made a lot of money. I hid it in a helmet in my room. I remember taking $20 once. But since then I’ve moved twice and to this day, don’t know where the money is. I had 3 total hiding spots and can’t remember if I spent it or someone stole it. It was probably $500.”

  6. The Boyfriend Who Did or Didn’t Come Home

    “One night I heard my boyfriend come home from work while I was sleeping, he came in and said hi then went out to the living room. I get up not long after to convince him to come to bed, and he’s not home…. I called him and he told me he had stayed late at work and repeatedly told me he had not come home that night at all. I freaked out and made him come home right away. Creeped me out for a while.”

  7. A Call From the Future

    “I’ve got three children with pretty unique names. Not unheard of but not common. My oldest son, Rylan, was 9 at the time and sitting on the couch. My cell phone rang, which was weird because it was only used for emergencies as I used my house phone more often being a stay at home mom. I answered it even though I didn’t recognize the number. Here is how the convo goes. Me: Hello? Teen Boy: Hey mom! M: Um who is this? (Looking in the living room to see all three of my kids hanging out on the couch) TB: Mom! It’s me, Rylan!! Me: RYLAN WHO! (Now I’m frantically looking at my son who is very confused) TB: Mom, stop playin! (Phone sounds like it’s got a hand covering the mouth piece and I can her another voice say “no it’s not time yet”) Oh I’m sorry, wrong number….click. Whether it was a prank or my kid from the future I’ll never know. I do know I had to hold onto the wall so I didn’t pass out. After I tried to call back about 2 mins later it said the number was disconnected. Super freaky.”

  8. Free Phone Minutes

    “Got a random message on my phone that 400 minutes had been added to it. No clue how, given that the only people capable of doing it didn’t have that kind of money at the time. It was a very nice surprise.”

  9. Seeing Only Brown

    “When I was a kid, like 7 or 8, I started to randomly see nothing but brown. Like staring at a wall. Usually only on one eye, but not always the same, rarely on both at the same time. Went to several doctors and they did some testing, but nothing came up. As I grew older, there was more time between occurrences, and now I haven’t had it in close to 10 years. Sometimes it still bothers me not knowing wtf that was.”

  10. A Scary Follower

    “Car followed me home from work late at night, didn’t know where the police station was, so I stopped on a dark road near my suburb to make sure he was actually following me, and sure enough he stops behind me. I got out and grabbed the emergency axe out of the truck without even shutting off the car and started walking towards it, and the car sped off. I was tired and stupid for doing that, but I will never know why or who that was.”

  11. A Random Bashful Playing Card

    “About a year ago I found a playing card in my wallet with a scantily clad woman on it. No matter how much prodding I did, my husband and all our friends SWEAR they didn’t do it. I still have it in my wallet and occasionally ask friends about it but to this day no one has fessed up.”

  12. Running into the Same People in Different Citie

    “Traveling the U.S. Arrive in Austin, meet an African girl named Wendy. Spend a little time with her, nice but nothing special between us. She leaves, a couple days later time to go for me. I take the train to Denver, end up getting stuck, delayed a day or two. Miss my transfer and end up in Chicago. Get off the the train, and there is Wendy, in the Windy City, walking right by at that instant. There were a lot of serendipitous moments during that trip, so I’m perplexed but not surprised.”

  13. A Picture of Brandy

    “Fiancé and I come back to our apartment after being away all day. Get in, drop bags off, etc and I walk in the kitchen and there on my counter was a picture of a black girl. It was like a senior portrait with the name “Brandy” on it. My fiancé and I are white and we don’t know anyone named Brandy. I remember unlocking the door, so I know the door was locked and nothing else seemed out of sorts. Just a wallet sized photo. So naturally. I framed it and now Brandy is an unofficial member of our family. Brandy, if you are out there, we love you. Come visit.”
