True story:

When I was stationed at Camp LeJeune, a friend and I lived off base. We rented a small trailer in a trailer park. Unfortunately, we had the unit next to the owners/managers.

One night we were drunk/stoned and carrying on. My roommate suddenly felt sleepy and laid on the couch. Before he went out, he said, "And then she said, 'they seemed like such nice fellows too," then he went to sleep.

I was wondering what was going on when the owners drove up to their own trailer. Their parking spot was right in front of their trailer. The trailers were only separated by about 15-20 feet. You could hear conversations from the outside.

I looked out the windows because we were expecting visitors. As they were walking up to their trailer I heard her voice. She said while looking at our trailer, "And they seemed like such nice fellows too."

I did a "Wow!!!" and my friend woke up. I related to him what I just witnessed. He was out for less than a minute. I asked him if he remembered anything and he said "no."

Nobody died, but I haven't experienced anything similar to this in my life since.

BTW, we got our eviction notice about a week later.
