A few years ago, I started working for the bakery department of a major grocery store chain in my city. I was in the process of getting acclimated to all the co-workers names, when I met two women there who would become my closest friends. They were both much older than I and I was the youngest at 23, but we still got along famously. We will call one Judy and the other Sandy.
As the weeks went by, for some reason the name Sandy would just pop into my head and mostly when Judy was around me. But I tried to dismiss it as I was new and would mix everyone's names around. But it would get worse and the urgency to SAY Sandy to Judy for whatever reason wouldn't let up! It got so bad that I would accidentally call Judy, Sandy. She would just laugh. But one day I got so fed up with the "voice" in my head saying "SANDY SANDY JUST SAY SANDY DO IT JUST SAY SANDY" that I said to Judy, "Why do I have to say Sandy to you? I have a voice in my head that keeps telling me to say Sandy to you. WHY?" She looked blankly at me and said she had no idea what I was talking about. And as I explained to her what I was hearing, she casually said her mother, who died 10 years ago, is named Sandy. No sooner did she say this, that the urgency to say Sandy to Judy disappeared never to be heard again. I was confused and said to Judy, "Well, maybe your mother wanted me to say hi to you for her!" The Sandy we worked with had the same name as the mother of Judy!
But I still can't understand what that was about. I guess Judy was not paying attention to her mother's "calls" so she went through me to say hello.
