My fiancee got back to our apartment recently at about 4 in the morning. As she was getting ready for bed, she heard a loud crash. Running into her roommate’s bathroom, she saw the shower curtain had fallen into the tub. Helpfully she put the thing back up, and almost immediately after she got it up, CRASH! The shower curtain in her bathroom had fallen!
At this point she got a big case o’ the willies, and was telling herself it was just a coincidence. Suddenly a big pile of dishes in the sink, which had been there for 24 hours began to settle loudly; the pile essentially collapsed on itself.
The dish thing sent my fiancee scurrying out of the apartment, convinced her place was cursed. I’m pretty weirded out by the story myself, but a friend last night offered an interesting hypothesis: the apartment building may have been “shifting” which led to these three things going off balance.
Is that a plausible explanation? We’re talking the first floor corner apartment in a three-story building. Anyone with enough construction mojo to answer?
