This took place in Michigan, around the late 1990's. My children and I had relocated not long before this took place. And what happen is still a mystery to me. Something that still just don't make sense in a way.
I went to the store down the road, it was a new one just built and had the "Grand opening" sign hanging out on the sign in front of the store. They advertised "Good subs are made here, come on in and try one".
Well living in our rural area we lived in, there is not to many places nearby us, to have too many choices to make, as far as eating out goes. So I said to my kids "Are you hungry enough to try one of their new subs, they are talking about?" Of course being kids, they didn't say no.
We went into this newly open store. We ordered what we wanted, and were just wondering around the store waiting for our order to be done. I looked out the door and made a comment to my oldest son "Wow how are all those people, going to get into that small car?" My son looks out and says to me "Mom what are you talking about?". I said that small car out there, don't you see it? Yes he states to me. I said do you see all the people, standing by that car? He tells me no. I said "Honey there are at least 7 or 8 people trying to get into that car". He tells me there are only 3 people trying to get into the car. I said "NO" there are like 7 or 8. He walks away. Our subs are ready, I pay for them and we go outside.
I look for the car it's not there and neither are all the people I seen trying to get into that car. A few days later I needed bread, went back to that store. Again I seen a little car with a lot of people trying to get into one car. I ask my other son "Do you see the car with all the people, trying to get into it? He looks and says "I see the car but not that many people getting into it". I am trying to figure out why I see lots of people and they don't.
For a week every time I went to that store, I seen the same thing the car and lots of people. And every time it seemed to be more people then the 7 or 8 trying to get into this little car. I stopped going to that store, for a few years.
I went to that store a few months ago. Nothing happen. No little car, not a lot of people trying, to get into the little car. Nothing was there but my truck and my guy.
I asked the store owners if they knew if anyone died in their parking lot, many people. He told me not that he knew of. That he did have a store there before this one, but it caught fire and three dogs died in the fire but no people were hurt or in the fire.
So what took place with this wacky week for me?
