What's your creepiest "glitch in the matrix" or unexplainable thing that's ever happened to you?

Both of mine happened while I was young in my childhood house which is weird because it’s the most normal place I ever lived.

One happened when I was 6, I had a large 5 gallon jug that I kept change in for like ‘vacation savings’. One day I was putting change in it and I got knocked in the head with a nickel. I remember yelling thank you with no reply, finished putting the change in the jug and went out to where my mom was (in the kitchen making fried chicken) and ask if she heard me say thank you. She was like “for what” and I said for tossing change at me in my room. She didn’t have any idea what I was talking about and I asked if dad has come home and she said no. That’s the first weird thing that I can remember.

The other experience in this home, I must have been 8 or 9 and I at the time collected Pokémon figurines. I had a Mew toy go missing for months. Eventually one day I walked into our front door area where we had this mirror and below it two like “cabbage patch” dolls made that had the hair and eye color of my parents (not sure what weirdo gave them this gift) and I see the Mew figure sitting on the one that looks like my father’s head. The whole house knew I was looking for this thing too so no one would have put this there just to screw with 9 year old me for months.

I should also mention that my only sibling at the time was either not born or <1 yr old

I’ve lived in a bunch of creepy, old and in my perceived experience, haunted homes with lots of bizarre experiences. But these were the first ones I remember and have always stuck with me.
