Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

So, let's say you're home all alone enjoying your time. As you're enjoying your time alone, you let out a few loud sneezes then the sneezes stop. Afterwards the phone rings and when you answered the phone a voice on the phone whispers to you "Bless you" then hangs up. What do you do?


My Turn:

Yeah, I defintely think it's time to move to Nopesville.

For one, I'd be creeped out.

As someone with a history of stalkers, I would first assume that someone is stalking you. (Which I hope doesn't happen to you)

If that happened to me, I'd be on guard probably at all times.

Get a great idea for a prank call. If you just randomly dialed people said "bless you" and hung up? Statistically speaking you would at some point hit pay dirt freak someone out who had recently sneezed. And everyone who hadn't recently sneezed would rack their brain trying to connect your random call to a meaningful recent event. Failing that, they would then mentally connect your call to a possible future event. Because humans are naturally inclined to try and find meaning in randomness. We're very, VERY bad at recognizing and accepting random events.

If you placed 10 calls like that you'd likely spawn at least a few stories that people would tell for for days, weeks or months afterwards.

"Someone on the line said bless you than I won $10 on a scratch ticket!"
"Someone on the line said bless you than I found my keys!"
"Someone on the line said bless you than that car just missed me!"

So on and so forth. If you spent 15 minutes making calls you could sow chaos for weeks in the minds of the weak and gullible.

Then you could sit down, cackle to yourself and presumably stroke a some sort of exotic cat.

Nosy neighbors are worse than noisy neighbors... prolly not a voice you recognized with a quick 'bless you'. Maybe you should run an errand and leave the radio on some strange talk show station or whatnot. seriously, hope it is someone being mildly mischievous and not that close or creepy

You're all alone. Nobody is spying on you in or outside the house. That phone call could have came from someone across town and you will never know. But what you do know is that the person was kind yet creepy enough to say "Bless you" when you sneezed a few times.

True but it's just a natural reaction for some people.
