The Time We Created an Ouija Board

So I wanted to post this during Halloween season but it totally slipped my mind and now I decided to just throw it out there.

I grew up with my cousin being my bestie ever since we were babies, we used to cry to our parents just so they would take us to meet up.

Planning how to take my doll

We used to have slumber parties every once in awhile in each other’s houses and that time it was in my place. We were four girls by that time, me and my sister, she and her sister and I remember I was 16 or 15. We decided to try something for fun which was an Ouija board because back then everyone was talking about it. Now we didn’t have an actual board, we created one with a piece of paper and a coin. We wrote all that letters and everything else basically, think of it as the arab version of it … clearly cheap one.


One of us kept her index finger lightly on this coin and glide it over the letters of this paper, we took turns in keeping our finger. We can easily fake this but for some reason we were too terrified of this .. game as we called it.

We started talking to a ghost/demon/entity whatever you want to call it and it revealed that his name was Asad (which means Lion in Arabic) and we were asking random questions for fun. Anyway by the end we decided to stop and we were about to close the gate or whatever it’s called, the coin spelled “Kill” and we totally freaked out and left the room with that piece of paper and coin.


Basically we noped the f@#$ out of that room and didn’t enter it till the next day. We decided to burn the paper because we were so convinced that some weird things has started to happen in that room like random knocking on the closet door at night, was because of this paper. Honestly I think we were just scaring ourselves because when you think about something as if it’s the cause of this, you won’t get any other excuse else than that.

The gist of the story, I realized I didn’t have that sensitivity to paranormal activities from this issue because others would be seeing, hearing and feeling things happening around them .. except for me. Ghosts hate me …


The Time I Almost Lost My Temper At Work

It’s been awhile since I posted a story from my I-think-not-so-boring-life so I thought of sharing one that happened to me during my first months of my current job. If you read my post about my amazing coworker, you would know that I work in the IT department so we get calls quite frequently from employees basically whining that their PC not working but in the end it turns out they forgot their passwords.

So on this day, I got a call from a manager needing some assistance so instead of working  on his machine remotely I went to his office to see what’s his problem exactly. I thought people would know at least basic English skills and know how to function a PC since it’s 2016 but I was so wrong because ever since I got the job, I found out that hiring idiots is still a thing and let me give you an example, once an employee called me asking how to add an image to a document on MS Word.


I went to his office and he was an elderly man who seriously need to retire and stay home. I sat on his desk as I opened his PC while he was explaining what’s wrong. He was still using Windows XP OS and refuses to change it because … he doesn’t want his work to be transferred to a newer machine, he got two freakin’ machines next to each other and he plugs which one he wants  to work in either Windows 7 or Windows XP. His problem (As he kept repeating even though it’s not exactly a problem) was just installing some software he used in the Windows XP machine to the newer one. Anyway while I’m waiting for this god forsake machine to boot up as I worked on it, he kept demanding things endless and I was trying to calm myself not to rage on him because he’s … old… And I’m trying so hard to respect him.


While he continued demanding like I’m his personal maid or something, he handed me his phone and asked me RUDELY “Install WhatsApp for me” 


I almost lose all my temper and was about to throw the phone to his face and just leave because this was getting ridiculous and I don’t think this was part of my job requirement in any way. I phoned the ladies at the IT department basically saying “Come here before I do something that might get me fired”.

The gist of the story is, I don’t want to deal with these type of bossy people again because I might flip the table on their heads.


The Time I Got Catfished – He Came to See Me

In the midst of this person insanity, he actually came to see me .. or so he pretend to be and here’s how it happened. If you need a little of a backstory of my catfishing story, be sure to check out first, second, third and fourth part.

It was the weekend morning and I was checking my phone for new messages from this totally sane person. He started off with quite a cheerful mood in his messages which was weird to be honest and all the sudden he sends “Guess where I am ?” I was confused because it came out of the blue so I answered “Where ?” He said “Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque” (In case you didn’t know, it’s the main mosque in my country. Quite known and also a tourist attraction)  So obviously I freaked out saying OMG HE’S HERE!!


I should’ve really question that part because Grand Mosque is like a main tourist attraction so he could’ve googled it easily but alas younger me didn’t get slapped enough by friends – what friends ? Anyway I was trying to calm myself because I got excited and he told me last night after I slept, he took a plane from UK to Oman – how sweet .. ‘A’ class boyfriend. He asked me to suggest a decent hotel for him to stay in and I thought of a 5 star hotel since he’s clearly royal and all so I said Holiday Inn or Intercontinental Hotel, can you guess what he replied ? “Oh they seem expensive” No joke your royal highness.


Anyway he said he’ll settle in Holiday Inn hotel and asked me if I knew a car renting place because he wants to drive around in Oman .. with me. I gave him the number of a place nearby my house that I knew and he said he chose a Mercedes, I mean of course it’s practically a Ferrari or a Bugatti for him but being in a five star hotel is too expensive for him. We decided to meet in the afternoon and he wants to drive me around, we’ll finally go on a first ever date and I’ll finally see this dude face to face … I was wrong obviously.

By noon he sent to me “My father found out I left my apartment in UK and came to Oman, he got furious” I knew it “He sent men from the embassy to pick me up from the hotel and they literally held me like a criminal in cuffs” Oh the drama, the scandal “I’m right now in the embassy and I’ll be sent back to UK in an hour .. I was looking forward in meeting you, I even told the guy working in the hotel to clean the Mercedes so we can properly go on a date”


Of course he’ll do this whole lie, what was I expecting ? I don’t even think he was in Oman in the first place, these places can be easily searched online but wow how I did get my hopes so high that it hurt so bad like I’ve fallen face first from that height.


The Time I Used a Videogame Reference For a Homework

It’s been awhile since I posted a story from my school days so I remembered this incident when I was in the 12th grade. So as you know I love videogames and back then I was into Fatal Frame series and I mean totally obsessed that I want to live that videogame even though I’m going to probably die from the atmosphere and not from a ghost.


I had a subject called English Skills which was an elective along with the normal English subject but it had more assignments and homeworks to do. The teacher asked us to write an essay about a city or a town, explaining facts about them and what makes them interesting. Of course me being all cheeky and want to think out of the box, I wrote about Minakami village (All Gods Village) from Fatal Frame 2 saying this a real cursed village and I included images from the game like these:

In my defense, some people had few points that this village is real and of course I really wanted to believe it. So here I was submitting an essay about a videogame gameplay area with CGI pictures of this place – Wow you must be trying too hard to prove you’re a gamer.


Naturally the teacher gave me a WTF look the moment she read the introduction as she finished reading, she was absolutely confused and asked me “Are you sure this is real ?” Are you doubting a gamer ? Eventually she made me rewrite this essay with an actual real city because she refused to believe that village existed but hey I tried sliding it like it was real, can’t blame me for trying.

The gist of the story, if I could turn back time to that moment I would’ve used real images of some random village and slap on them the label Minakami Village because I still believe it exists.


The Time I Got Catfished – The Ex Showed Up

You thought my catfishing story was done ? Nope there are more stories I want to tell. If you never came across my catfishing story be sure to check out the first, second and third part to have a little of a backstory of how insane this person really is. The stories doesn’t have an order, I write them as I remember.

So it was a normal day as I’m wasting my time with this person who constantly want to talk to me and doesn’t want me go for some reason. This guy showed me that he can create random user names and start talking to me easily, he called it hacking but I honestly think it was a mod in the app since it was popular back then. One day I got a message from a person not in my friends list and it was a girl name, then things started getting weird.


So this new person was being all friendly, trying to get to know me and all. Then all the sudden this person revealed to be X Guy ex girlfriend whom he told me before he was so in love with her but she was forced to get married and leave him for family differences – I should’ve expected a Romeo and Juliet story from his side.


Now get ready to hear her side of the story – ahem – “I was so in love with X and we were building big dreams to live together and get married, escape from tradition chains and be ourselves in a world that doesn’t want us to be together” Sure why not, I mean he’s from a royal family, am I right ? then she continued “I cried so much when I was forced to get married and my tears were too much that I suffered from dehydration”


That’s when I died laughing because I’m pretty sure crying doesn’t cause dehydration, I mean it can give you a headache but dehydration ? Seriously ? I think he forgot to google this before typing. Anyway I continued reading this poor girl story “I was admitted to the hospital so many times because of dehydration, always hooked on IV fluids. I turned pale and skinny because I stopped eating, my husband treats me badly and I’ve been miserable ever since” And of course me being such a cold heartless bitch was like “And what do you want from me ?” She said “I want him back, I miss him”

Of course I knew this was one of his tricks as he’s using his ‘hack’ of generating random usernames to talk to me and try to make me jealous, I had to play along because this was getting epic to be honest. I made myself like I’m upset that she contacted me and blocked her like I’m a good girlfriend. Ironically he somehow seemed more relaxed like he knew about this encounter, it became too obvious that he was doing all these dramatic stories day by day.


I enjoyed it because it would be easier to expose him later when things start clashing. Hope you enjoyed this part of my crazy catfishing story, I’ll post more in the upcoming days.


The Time My Coworker Stopped Talking To Me


If you are following me on social media, you would know I’ve been going through a little bit of drama at work. Here’s a little of a back story of what’s been going on, I work in an authority that basically broadcasts the official TV channels and radio channels of my country, we have a small office within the authority with 4 ladies in the room and we are IT technicians and also considered a help desk so we get calls from employees from time to time.

About four weeks ago, one of these ladies all the sudden stopped talking to me for no apparent reason and not even replying to me when I say good morning or hi. That’s just plain rude because she not only completely ignored my existence, she just won’t even confront me of what I did wrong to make her hate me that much.

These four weeks passed as she kept ignoring me and I was tempted to throw the staplers to her face just so I give her a legit reason to hate me because at that point I was getting agitated from her behavior. I later found out that she’s been telling the manager things which I can assume complains about us ladies in the same office and of course the person she hates the most .. me.


I knew she was up to something and I felt she’ll somehow drag me to some trouble, she’s already known that she has a bitchy behavior to other ladies in the IT department. She shown that she’s jealous, I have no idea for what and why.  We don’t really treat her badly or anything, she just that type of person who feels she’s on top and likes the attention I guess. Before deciding to ignore me, she already done this to the other ladies in our office so we knew her attitude and didn’t really mind it. I was fine with her ignoring me but also it made me angry, wouldn’t you be if you were in my place ?

So there was a meeting that happened recently and she just straight up said that we (the other 3 ladies) don’t do anything and she does all the work as she’s being praised by the employees how hard working she is. We got furious from her blatant lies because non of the things she said really happens and she’s just being a bitch. So I held back and said I’ll talk to the manager alone and say our side of the story because if I interrupted her now she’ll say anything to defend herself but one of my coworkers couldn’t and she lashed out on her.

After calming the whole situation, I went to the manager and said what really happened and he actually knew she was lying. He also told me the reason why she stopped talking to me because apparently she complained about me to him, can you guess why she did that ?

I joke too much

Well if I had just thrown the stapler, it would be a solid reason.

The gist of the story is, I talk more sarcastically and joke a lot more around her on purpose because my sense of humor is just off the chart to be upset from, bitch.


The Time I Got Catfished – Survived a Bullet Through The Head

Welcome back to my series of unfortunate events featuring the one and only my online ex boyfriend. If this is your first time reading this, I suggest checking out the first and second part to get a little bit of a back story of how I got catfished by this crazy person.

As usual it started with a simple argument and me deciding not to talk this X guy, so he all the sudden decided to move out from his apartment because … add a little drama ? Anyway, as he leaves this apartment – he has to describe word by word what he’s doing and I mean even the part ‘dramatically turning to see his friend named Jessica saying “No … don’t go” wait wait who’s Jessica ?


This Jessica is a fellow colleague from his university and she’s blonde with blue eyes – I mean yeah of course that’s how British people supposed to look, right ? This Jessica character was created to stir some jealousy whenever I go against him, too bad it never worked.  It was at night and the wind was slowly blowing the hero’s hair, Jessica stood in front of him and said “No, don’t go” she paused and then continued “Why are you doing this ?” He stepped forward, leaving the door of the apartment behind and stood shoulder to shoulder next to the blonde-haired teary eyes girl without a single word. She turned to face him and grabbed him while sinking her lips against his but he pulled back … And walked away.


That’s exactly how he described the encounter by the way, let your imagination flow because this legit happened in his mind. So he continued messaging me of course still describing the situation and somehow he said “I kicked a car, I hope it’s not a black guy’s car” apart from being racist about this – surprise, he stopped talking to me for about 5 hours. What happened you ask ?

I got a message from the lovely Jessica saying, the car was owned by gang leader and they found him, shot him in the head and he’s in the hospital now. This was getting ridiculous and I was skeptical – finally Rei your mind started working, praise the lord. I asked her to send me a picture of him in the hospital and this Jessica kept making up excuses that he’s in the surgery room at the moment, and she’s outside waiting and crying because she’s the friendzoned girl who is jealous of me, his girlfriend whom he never seen or met. During this conversation she sent me a picture of the room he’s supposedly in and it just showed doctors’ back, later on I found this picture on google.


Few hours passed by and this Jessica was still messaging me telling me what’s going on and apparently he survived, wow shocking. By this point I understood his facades and decided to play along to see where his stories would end. Then later he was messaging me normally like nothing really happened and life goes on.
