1. He predicted my sister’s miscarriage

“Had a student last year that was different. He didn’t get along with other kids and kept mostly to himself. We communicated well when he was in the mood to interact. One day, at dismissal, I walked my students to their busses and he suddenly stopped and yelled, ‘It’s going to be SO funny when that baby dies!’ It creeped me the fuck out, but I asked him, ‘Sweetheart, what are you talking about??’ And he responded, ‘That baby in your family!!’ I put him on his bus and let him go home. The next morning, I got a call at work from my sister telling me that she had had a miscarriage. I don’t talk about my family in detail to my students and I know I never mentioned my sister or her baby to that student. Maybe it was just a weird coincidence, but it still gives me the heebie jeebies when I think about it.” — HoosierDoc
