How do you know that you are imagining things? Answered

Funny question, I know...
And usually I could not be bothered less about thinking that something might be a bit odd.
I have a permanant job, drive the same car now for over 12 years and live in a crappy rental.
Nothing special at all.

Most people don't have a landline anymore, I still do for some reason and actually use it when I am home and not a mobile phone.
So you might not know anymore when I explain the first weird thing I started to imagine...
Ever picked up your phone and got no dial tone?
Happens quite often here now....
I try a few times and suddenly I got the familiar humm letting me know I can punch in a number.
All good then...
Then some friends claimed that sometimes I would have a delay from my end and during this delay there is no sound at all, not even the usual static you can hear.
Ok, they use mobile phones, no big deal, crap happens.
But I thought I might ask my provider for detailed phone records of the past 2 or three billing cycles instead just a summary.
Some calls appeared a bit odd with the length of the call.
Had a few where I ended on the voice box and hung up but the bill showed several minutes for the call...
One local call really stood out though - 3.5 hours.
And I know this one can't be right because I people here and actually made the call a quick one...

The second weird thing that must be totally unrelated is that an Email account I used for well over 20 years and basically only to receive Emails got blocked by my provider based on claims it is used for spam.
Emails to fix it and provide me with a password to log into my account got ignored.
So I wasted about $30 for an overseas call to their service department.
I explained that my client still receives all advertising Emails from the account provider without any need for a login or password.
But all other Emails are kept in my online inbox with no access as my password got changed due the spam claims.
As my records would clearly show that during the 20 or so year maybe a handful of Emails were sent from this account the normal procedure for a spam suspicion would have been to follow policies and inform me about it while blocking the OUTGOING part but not the incoming one!
Funny enough I got not interrupted once trying to explain the problem but when I ended I got a shell shock.
I was informed that my account must have been hacked and used online - however I could not find a single outgoing Email in my online account or Email client.
When I asked about this fact and wanted to know details about these Emails I was told they were deleted to protect my account....
As a lst attempt I explained that used a 24 digit and quite complex password and highly doubt anyone would have been able to hack it, so I would like my access restored or at least the accumulated incoming Emails forwarded to my verfication account.
Apperantly since the spam was stopped by blocking my account there were no new Emails that reached my.
Means all those Emails I know my friends sent and those I sent myself to test the account access were just a thing of my imagination.
When I asked why my account is still active and provider Emails and notifications still arrive in my inbox on the PC I was told this is not possible as the account is inacative....
In case you wonder what the usage for this account was: Pure personal, information and document exchange only.
However most of the content in the received Emails relates to what we misleadingly call "free energy".
Things like anti gravity propulsion, Scalar drive systems or just plain and really old stuff relating to patents that are almost 100 years old - or older...

The last thing that now makes me wonder how active my imagination really is:
Ever had the feeling you are being watched?
Since about October last year every single parcel from overseas that did not originate in China or Malasia arrive repacked and with an inspection notice from our customs department.
And according to some senders I seem to have lost quite a few printed documents in the process...
But again, biosecurity is a big thing here, same for trying to figure out how so many drugs make it into the country on the postal or shipping way....
However, when my neighbour came over after xmas and asked if I would know the guy in the tiny hatchback that is parked up the street I had to say no, I don't - Why?
Appearently the same guy arrives there a few minutes after I get home from work and usually sits there for 2 or 3 hours.
Well, not my problem, not my house up there, so why bother.
I took a good look at the car and driver though when I went for a quick trip to the shops.
I got back home and sure enough the guy was gone, so nothing to worry about.
Until I started unloading my shopping and the guy came back, parking in his usual spot.
I finnished my unloading, had something to eat and a shower, then took my bins out - and he was still there.
Time to have a meet and greet.
Don't know about you guys but I find it odd if someone does not react, does not look at you, not even when you knock on the window - just staring out of the windscreen as there was something magical happening in front of the car.
And while I kept trying he just drove off...
Have not seen the car or driver since anywhere in my street and I guess a car that now constantly parks with a driver in a dead end road with clear view into my road does not count...
And yes, I tried the cops and yes the actually came twice until I was told they would not bother anymore.
Appearently the poor guy finnishes work now and is waiting for his mate to get back home from work as he does no want drive home and a few minutes later down here.
Makes a lot of sense, even if there is never anyone arriving and the guy never leave the car, just drives off once bored enough.

It is so good to know that you only imagine things that are not real but just coincidences...
However, I would like to know if there other people still using a landline and noticing odd things with it.
And how often do you have international shippments inspected by customs and repacked?
Ever got your Email account made inaccessible for no reason at all and no chance to ever get access again to it, despite proving your identity and no evidence of any wrongdoing available?
If so, did it happen by any chance while you were waiting on some really important documents arriving in this inbox?
