Weird coincidence 2

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago the weird coincidence whereby having sold my car at point A, I had to stop and give way to it at point Y a week or so later. It made for a mildly amusing (but not hugely impressive) blog post. But tonight *cue Twilight zone music* it happened again, this time at point Z. I had just emerged from a meeting in the village hall of an obscure Oxfordshire village when my old car drew up outside the Post Office opposite the hall. (Even more bizarrely, the Post Office was closed so no real reason for anyone to pull up there!). The weirdness quotient is quite large as not only is it statistically a little bizarre to see said vehicle twice, but on both occasions they have been definite rendevous*, not just passing glimpses!

Points A, Y and Z are also a long way apart and represent some sort of huge Bermuda triangle of coincidal bizarreness. Maybe there is some weird time flux link paradox akin to Doctor Who type stuff? or maybe not 🙂
*Is Rendevous the singular and plural?

  1. “my old car drew up outside the Post Office opposite the hall. (Even more bizarrely, the Post Office was closed so no real reason for anyone to pull up there!)”
    erm… post offices do have post boxes even when they’re shut. So could be entirely innocent… or brain-eating alien stalkers… who can tell!
    If you hear the word extermenieren – run!

  2. “Extermineren” was fall-off-the-sofa funny. (Does Youthblog need an explanation?)
    Last night I sold the car described by Youthblog as “officially the world’s best car” to a guy from Abingdon, smack in the middle of the Bermuda triangle of coincidal bizarreness. If I don’t get any wierdness I’m asking for my money back.

  3. “Extemineren” was laugh out loud funny for me too when the Germanic Darlek Possy flew by!! I am unsure if ‘Extermineren’ has any linguistic credibility though? I think the poor misguided Daleks actually meant Ausrotten!
    Great news about selling the best car in the world (other than I won’t get to drive it again) and this is on the same day that my first car, an Austin Allegro, was voted the worst car in the world.
    Am amused that you sold your car into the heart of the Bermuda car triangle, it could all get a little MX5 meets MI5!

  4. follow it and see where it goes (aka Dirk Gently) – does it go back to the house where you sold it to ? Or somewhere else ? This could be a whole hour on the new BBC drama ‘Nosepickers’ officially the worst television programme in the world.

  5. Have you noticed that Didcot is in the middle? Perhaps you have now established the presence of the ‘Didcot Triangle’ – inside which strange things happen (at least they do at Baptist House!)
