Every one of us heard an unbelievable story or two in their lifetime. Whether it was at work, party, or school, they all have one thing in common – too many coincidences; they simply can't be true.
That kind of stuff simply doesn't happen to regular people. Or people we know. Well, it turns out that some of these stories are true.
A Twitter user named Aidan Moher asked people to share their unbelievable but completely true stories, and the responses were nothing short of amazing. We have selected some of the best stories, and we know you are going to enjoy them as much as we did.
I met Marlon Brando through an AOL chat room in the early 90s, we became friends, & a few years later, at 3am one nite, in his "Godfather" voice, he called the thief who stole my 1960 pink Rambler to tell him he'd better keep paying me the monthly court-ordered restitution money. https://t.co/O4CmR6wxRS— Amy Alkon (@amyalkon) January 7, 2020
My grandfather died the same minute I was born on a different ward in the same hospital. The time on my birth cert matches his death cert.— James Phelpstead (@Phelpsy78) January 5, 2020
Moved into what we believed was a three bedroom apartment. Discovered a fourth, hidden bedroom—still furnished and filled with the clothes, records, and diaries of a hip art student who had lived there 15 years ago. https://t.co/DbchiUdEey— Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (@vishnevetsky) January 7, 2020
I once said “Hi Matt” to Matt LeBlanc in London and he responded by hugging me and saying “Thank you for not calling me Joey” https://t.co/8xIuWeMHXu— Mike 🏴 🏴 (@ApRhydderch) January 5, 2020
My girlfriend years ago wrote a quick thank you in a $10 bill for tip and months later that same bill ended up in my hands as change. I still have that bill because of the coincidence.— Harry Balczak (@lookmahvelous2) January 7, 2020
In college I fell out of my bunk bed and broke both of my legs and one arm. Years later on a date, I made a joke about being clumsy and the dude told me I couldn’t compare to this woman his EMT brother helped once ... who fell out of her bunk and broke all the bones. It was me. https://t.co/TQSEwXK4rw— Amanda Nell Edgar (@amandanelledgar) January 7, 2020
I saw my neighbor lady who had recently been hospitalized walking in her backyard and told her I was glad she was home and feeling better. She smiled at me. When I went inside and told my mom that the lady was home, Mom told me that she’d died at the hospital that morning.— Laura Kaye (@laurakayeauthor) January 7, 2020
In college a friend found an ID of a dude over 21 who looked just like me. I used it like a charm for months. Then I went to a club and a bouncer starting asking me what’s my address and birthday and shit. I finally said “dude it’s me” and he replied “no dude, it’s ME”. It was. https://t.co/gUW03MxUc3— Sweep The Leg (@SweepTheLeg337) January 7, 2020
I moved into the same San Francisco house high on Castro hill where my parents dated and fell in love... completely by coincidence.— #bidenharris2020 #ifyouwanttolive (@gdtrble) January 7, 2020
Tell me a story about yourself the sounds like a lie but is absolutely true.— Aidan Moher (@adribbleofink) January 4, 2020
I was riding bikes with my daughter on Fri The 13th, & a black cat scurried across the bike path in front of us. My daughter said something about bad luck, and I began to tell her that it was only superstition when a bee flew into my mouth and stung me on the back of my throat.— Fred.

When Taylor Swift was like 12, her father asked me to build her a website (our fathers were friends and I had learned web design). I blew him off because I was busy and while talented for her age, this Taylor girl wasn't going anywhere... https://t.co/YkdIuNhcnX— Lambgoat (@lambgoat) January 7, 2020
Once accidentally kidnapped a drunk man who was trying to get into his own home. Saw him slumped by the road, coaxed him into the cab to ‘take him home safely’ and ignored his slurry protests. Some 30 mins of confusing directions later and we... end up at exactly the same place. https://t.co/cwj43Fig8g— Sara Spary (@saramayspary) January 7, 2020
A few months after my son was born, my now-ex-wife wanted to have some professional photos taken, but we were kinda broke. We appealed to reddit and a very kind couple took pity on us and gifted us a very nice session. One of the photos ended up being the Skeptical Baby meme. https://t.co/oL2B2FkuTY— Dave Thomas (@Hossmania82) January 7, 2020
My middle name is literally a fucking typo. My mom had a c section and forgot to write the rest of Nicole due to the drugs, she fell asleep and they took the paperwork, wouldn’t give it back and now my middle name is Ni https://t.co/SYbP92eN9r— ✨lil L on the beat✨ (@teriyakiJUULpod) January 8, 2020
I tried saving myself from the embarrasment of having being caught naked at a house viewing by a realtor and a potential buyer, by pretending to be dead— Mireille Sillander (@mimesatwork) January 5, 2020
