- I urgently needed to get to the bank and called a taxi. I sat down in the car and commanded, “Go to the bank and hurry up!” When we arrived, I gave money to the driver, and he said: “Lady, I’m not a taxi driver, this is the first time I’ve met you. You got into my car and gave such a sharp command that I got scared and just drove.” © Podslushano / Ideer
- 10-year-old me sat in a swim ring and swam so far into the sea that the coastline was barely visible. I started paddling back, and after a while felt a push on my back. I was really scared, turned around, and there was a DOLPHIN. It “pushed” me all the way to the shore and swam away wagging its tail. © Podslushano / Ideer
- I’m dating a girl who lives in another hemisphere. We rarely see each other, but we always send gifts for the holidays. Last New Year I decided to surprise her. I flew to her, called her on Skype, she answered and... She was in my country. © Podslushano / Ideer
- A friend’s wife is very poorly oriented in the city even though she has lived here all her life.

The girl is a cartographer — she has been making maps of our city for several years. © Podslushano / Ideer
- I am a hairdresser. One day, a middle-aged lady came in to get her hair dyed and cut. The result was excellent and I did the styling carefully. She was delighted with the hairstyle. But then she takes a wig out of her bag and puts it on her head, saying, “I wear this instead of a hat.” © Podslushano / Ideer
- I was bored and came across some videos about junk food. I watched more than 100 videos about what everyone’s favorite foods are made of, and how they affect the body. Since then, for a year, I didn’t even look at sausages, sweets, pre-prepared products, etc. Only simple homemade food. As a result, I lost 154 lbs. This is how a lifelong dream came true, simply because there was nothing to do one evening. © Podslushano / Ideer
- I usually fly with a black suitcase, but this time I carried an orange one. I was waiting for the luggage at the airport. I saw a black suitcase and grabbed it out of habit. A man came up and said: “Lady, this is mine.” I said: “Sorry, it’s very similar to mine.” You should have seen the face of this man when my bright orange suitcase came and I grabbed it. © Podslushano / Ideer
- I was moving my wardrobe and my ferret came running. It started to yell loudly, jumping and swinging its legs. It turned out that he had a “stash” under my wardrobe.

- I was walking in a park. Suddenly, in the fog, I saw a HUGE silhouette of a black dog running straight at me. I was terribly scared and ready to say goodbye to the world.

I never saw it again. © Podslushano / Ideer

- I woke up at night because someone was whispering creepily nearby. My husband was sleeping peacefully. I panicked and woke him up, but he couldn’t hear anything.

Headphones were lying next to my pillow, so only I could hear these sounds. © Podslushano / Ideer
