This happened a couple of weeks ago while I was at work. I am in the Navy so my work happens to be on a ship with a crew of about 250 people. And the ship is only 509 feet long, so fairly small compared to most navy ships people think about.
A couple Of weeks ago I was heading down a ladder to the main deck on the aft end of the ship. On my way down the ladder with our First Lt I had ran into let's say her name is "Sarah". She was heading to the quarterdeck, which happened to be on the flight deck even further aft, with a bag of trash. As I got to the bottom of the ladder she had bumped her bag of trash into my leg I felt it distinctly as it brushed into me. And she continued walking towards the flight deck to take out the trash. I had continued on my way walking forward on the main deck when not only but 1 minute later I saw her again, empty handed, with no trash. I hadn't even traveled 40 feet from were I had last seen her. Now when I say the ship is small, it is not any where near small enough to make it out to the pier back on and be heading aft again with no trash. She wouldn't have even been able to drop the bag off head to the T shaped P-way about the half way point of the ship and to me. Not even in a full sprint.
This all put me in a state of confusion for what I just saw. So I asked "Sarah" if I had just seen back by the ladder and she replied no. In which I had replied I could of sworn I just saw you with a bag a trash. And she replied that I hadn't. So I blew her off with a not quite convince okay. And continued on. My First LT who was behind me the whole time said she was just messing with me about it and he saw her as well.
So later on in the day I had to just ask again to make sure she was being serious and she kept the same answer. Sarah isn't the type of person to mess with people for no reason like that. I know her face when I see it. It is a small crew I know everybody on board when it come to faces and names.
What do you guys think doppelganger?
