Every now and then, we find ourselves sharing a story with a friend or family member which people might actually think is "too good to be true."

Even though you are sharing something that did indeed, happen to you, parts or all of it might seem so outrageous, that those on the receiving end simply can't, or won't, believe it actually happened.

And might demand pictures for proof.

Redditor MochaMario99 was curious to hear people's memories which others found to be literally unbelievable, leading them to ask:

"What’s a funny memory you have that if you told someone, they’d think you’re lying?"


"Across a crowded lane..."

"This was a couple years ago but I pulled up to a stop light, and another vehicle in the next lane also comes to a stop."

"The car is filled with what looks like high school kids."

"The kid in the passenger seat notices me, taps on his window and starts doing the universal sign for rock, paper, scissors."

"I look at the light, which is still red, and immediately think f*ck it and play along so we start. 1..2..3..shoot and we tie."

"1..2..3..shoot, we tie again."

"This keeps happening."

"All the young kids in the other car are involved and are screaming like 'WOOOOOAAH' every time we tie."

"We literally got off like 15 rounds of rock, paper, scissors and tied every single time until the light turned green."

"I'm still high from that and hope all those guys are doing well."- djbabel207

Do I know you?

"I once checked in at a restaurant and gave the hostess my name to hold my slot, she then asked for my last name since the person below shared my first name."

"When I told her my last name, she looked at my like I was lying."

"The person below had my first and last name."

"She laughed and introduced us, and we took a pic."

The (odd) beginnings of beautiful friendships

"Started college."

"Saw my brother's best friend on campus, from a distance."

"Hard to miss: Nate's 6'6", skinny, long brown hair."

"Fitting of our childish friendship, I straight up open-field tackle the guy."

"From behind."

"Blindsided."

"It's not Nate."

"I apologize, and sheepishly run away."

"Three hours later, a girl friend from high school introduces her new boyfriend to a group of us."

"It's the guy I tackled."

"Danny."

"Super nice (and forgiving) guy."

"We've been friends for 15 years."- The_amazing_T

"I was in elementary school."

"During recess, just kinda daydreaming and looking at some ravens flying overhead, when one of them suddenly took a nosedive... right into an open trash can."

"So of course I rush over there to check it out, but the raven was just gone out of nowhere."

"I was not the only me who saw it though, another kid came rushing over as well, and thats how i met my best friend for the next 4 years."-

Who knew they even sting?

"I got stung by a platypus."- --bedevil--

Wrong place at the right time!

"A friend once called the wrong number, got the wrong house, and had the right person pick up."

"So, I was at work, replacing a modem for my boss."

"I'd removed the modem and connected a telephone to test that it had dial-tone."

"Soon after, the phone rang."

"It didn't make much sense, because that phone line had only been used for outgoing calls from the computer."

"When I picked up, the person on the other line just said 'Hey man, you want to see a movie later?'."

"I recognized the voice, too."

"It was a friend of mine."

"I was really confused for a second and said something like 'Josh? How did you get this number?'."

"He said he called my home phone number."

"He must have misdialed my number, and accidentally dialed the number for my bosses modem line, at work."

"He called the wrong number, got the wrong house, and the right person picked up, on a phone that had only been connected for 2 minutes in the past 2 years."

"The odds must be astronomical."

"It's just a weird coincidence that I'll always remember."- User1539

I married a star!

"Before my husband and I were married, but had been dating for a long while, I was watching Portlandia and BAM there’s my husband on screen."

"Dumbfounded I called him and he casually said 'oh yeah I forgot about that'."- upornicorn

One wishes we could prove that these truly extraordinary things happened to us when people raise even the smallest hint of doubt.

But then too, one person's disbelief can't erase actually experiencing these hilarious, unforgettable memories.

And, it will always make a good story, whether others believe you or not.


People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Do they deserve it?

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
