22 People On The Horrible Gut Feeling They Couldn’t Shake (That Turned Out To Be Right)

These stories from Ask Reddit will remind you to follow your gut.

13. Someone attempted to kidnap the two of us

“This happened almost 30 years ago, but I remember it like it was yesterday. I was probably 8 or 9 at the time and had been at the store buying candy for the weekend with the girl from next door, she was one year younger than me. A car stopped and the man inside opened the passenger door and asked me and my friend to get in the car. He was picking us up for our parents, he told us.

I could not shake the feeling that something was wrong and remember thinking “this is what my parents were talking about!”. I grabbed my friends hand, said that we lived in that house “right over there” and pulled my friend with me. Went to their door, rang the bell, went straight in and told the people living there what had happened.

Turned out I was right, we were about to be kidnapped.” — bipbopbipbopbap 

14. They narrowly avoided a deadly car accident

“My grandparents were driving up a steep mountain road behind a logging truck, when my grandmother started having a mild panic attack.

She just kept saying ‘somethings not right, pull over. We need to pull over’ so my grandpa did and settled her down.

After a few minutes she was fine and they kept driving.

A mile or two up the road the load of trees had come loose and spilled off the truck.” — MicMcKee 

15. I found the dead body of a loved one

“Found somebody I knew dead. You never really expect that, but the feeling of something feeling very wrong was definitely there. Not a good experience at all.” — 24rubikscube
