This is my second story but it wasn't my second encounter with paranormal stuff. Also I wasn't really sure if it was paranormal or not. Just thought of sharing and here it goes.
I was sixteen at that time and was still living in a rental two storey bungalow. Near my house was a local mini market with a few vending machines placed at the left side of the shop. It was 3 or 4 of them if my memory was correct. The drinks inside the vending machines were mostly tropical fruits flavour. My cousin at that time was moving out from town because his father was reallocated in Australia by his firm so basically my cousin and his family have to move there with the father.
We were chatting inside my house at that particular time when he said he would like to treat me to some Chinese food. I agreed but I told him we need some drinks too so we decided to walk to the vending machines which were located near my house. It was nearly 6 pm. When we got there the shop was almost closed. The vending machines were quite popular at our local town at that time because each of the can was printed with alphabet words, one alphabet per can. The owner being business minded used to put up certain word every month in front of the vending machines. The rule is simple. If you can make up the word using the cans from the vending machines you will get hundred bucks. The word for that month was "GHOST". My cousin just laughed it off and he said the owner was brilliant because of his strategy, the cans were selling fast.
Then he told me there were no such thing as ghosts, just merely our imagination. BUT of course I don't agree with him. We proceeded to the vending machine and I told him my coins weren't enough. He said not to worry as he has plenty. He was just about to insert the coin into the machine when the top most button turned red. It only become red if someone enter the sufficient amount of coins before the instruction of pressing the drink appears. We were surprised because no one was there previously. We can see it from the street that no one was there.
My cousin didn't think much so he just pressed the button. More surprisingly there were 7 cans coming out from the machine continuously. The odd thing was the vending machine can only read one instruction at a time and we can clearly see no amount of coins written on the screen of the machine. Each vending machine has a tiny little screen where you can see the amount of coins you have inserted and if it was enough or not. I lost my words for about 1 minute and I suggested it might be some kind of paranormal being having fun with us because I could feel the atmosphere around us was different than it normally does. My cousin still with his denial and said it was the faulty machine problem and we were lucky to have free drinks.
It wasn't until we returned home that he decided to stack the cans on top of the fridge while waiting for the food delivery. The 7 cans were actually forming the word 'GOODBYE'! Coincidence or paranormal? I am not really sure. You decide.
