Those accursed words. Oh, how I hate them! Why? The reason is simple, it is really hard to prove that someone was actually touched. I am a very evidence driven person and there is nothing that I hate more than when someone claims to have been touched. I even hate it when I say it! I'm not saying that it's because I think the person is lying, but because I don't know if they are or not. I hate saying it because I think that other people think that I am lying.
The truly sucky thing is that there are a lot of people out there who say it just to get attention. Those people really piss me off! They take the credibility away from the ones who truly do feel like they've been touched. The "I just felt something go through me" or the fake being possessed people get on my nerves, too. Seriously? I've been on a lot of investigations and I have never felt like something has gone through me or been possessed. What makes these people so damn special? Simply put, they probably aren't.
Back to my original gripe, I have honestly felt things that didn't seem quite right. I don't mean after I just woke up from a dental procedure and my blouse is undone type of not quite right either. I mean the feeling that something or something is actually touching you. The funny tingle on your arm or a push on your back kinda something. I usually try to keep it to myself unless it is really obvious. You never know when a muscle is gonna spasm or something else that makes your skins react to something natural. So, it's not always easy to tell which is which. Sucks, I know.
I always worry that if I say anything either people are gonna look at me like I just told them that Elvis just possessed my body or you get the round of the "me, too" chorus that rarely seems genuine. The craziest thing of all is that it might actually be true. That's why I hate the "I just got touched" proclamation. Someone could really be full of crap but you don't really have a way of proving it. I know what I feel or not but I have no way of confirming what others feel AND THAT DRIVES ME NUTS!
