Doppelgangers

We are taking a break this week from the BEK encounters to talk about another strange series of occurrences that are taking place across the United States. Doppelgangers. These are situations when an unsuspecting person runs into a carbon copy of themselves. Nobody really knows the truth about doppelgangers—but take a look at this encounter and see what you think about it.

My grandma passed away many years ago. It was a complete shock to the whole family as she had shown no signs of ill health. My mother took her loss badly, as I guess all children do.

Months later and the family was starting to pull itself together. My mother had a striking resemblance to her mother, and she was in the process of dating the man who would become her second husband. She hired a babysitter to watch myself, and my brother while she went out on a date.

The sitter was a local girl, who really wanted us to go to bed. She had her boyfriend coming over. She shooed us off to bed and sat on the couch waiting for her boyfriend to arrive. I hear a commotion downstairs when the door opened and a woman who ‘sounded’ like my mother entered the room. She was screaming, and shouting, and told the sitter to put her clothes on and go home.

The babysitter left and the whole house went silent.

The next morning, I woke up and went downstairs to find my mother angrier than I’d ever seen her. She claimed that she had come home and found nobody watching us. She called the sitter. “Why did you leave my children alone?” The sitter replied, “Well, you told me to leave.” My mother then said, “I certainly did not.”

Confused the sitter said, “Well someone told me to leave, and it certainly looked like you.”

My mother didn’t say anything to the sitter—but she certainly believed to her dying day that her mother had been the one responsible for that mess. We had a different sitter after that, and I never heard anything more about the story.

But sometimes when I think about it—it does make me smile. My grandmother was such a strong woman; she would have certainly behaved that way if she had walked in on a sitter getting ready for her boyfriend.

What do you make of that? Why don’t you check out some of the other stories that have been sent into us here? Check out our other posts.
