Hi 'PeteS:' No - nothing to do with them being disappointed about the pot itself, t'was all to do with that wave of light.
Is it possible that they knew of you and of you experience even though you didn't know them? Maybe they'd popped in just to see if anything weird would happen? Perhaps they were hoping you'd be able to 'heal' it just by touch?

No, absolutely not. And I'm certain that they didn't expect anything like that to happen either - neither did I, more to the point!

Hi 'Zeke Newbold:' Apologies for missing out to answering your question... yes I am that person.
Sid, thanks for sharing your strange experience. Can you recall what you felt immediately after the wave appeared? I think I would have been truly freaked out if it had happened to me! Have you experienced any other instances of unexplainable occurrences (however random) ?

Hi 'Trish71:' "What did I feel immediately after the wave appeared?" Puzzled; Alarmed, a bit disbelieving of what had just taken place right in front of my eyes - but not exactly 'freaked-out' as such (actually, I felt a bit under the spot-light as the two woman markedly pointed their shock at what happened towards me personally - and I didn't have a clue as to what was the cause of the event.
And yes, I have had other experiences at times... other 'out-of-the-norm' occurrences I've been confronted by over my lifetime.

So did you talk to the women after the event to confirm that what they saw was the same as what you saw??

I don't know why two people would run off saying "I'm not going back there" when seeing this event it doesn't make sense.
How could I talk to the two woman who ran off - when they ran off? I never said the event made any sense, however, I did say that I had no answer to what had taken place.

Latecomer to this thread, but feel obliged to ask if Sid ever experienced migraines or has a history of epilepsy?

The aura effect often preceding migraines or seizures, can resemble wavy lines or a rainbow. If you experienced something akin to that and stared blankly for a few seconds, that could conceivably have spooked the two women.

Wiki depicts an aura as looking like this, which does not seem a million miles away from your illustration.

If that was a case of a migraine 'sparkler' then the customer wouldn't have seen it. Only Sid.

I used to get these things. and they lasted for about five minutes as the sparkler traveled across my field of vision. Didn't matter which direction I was looking.

I also get these sparklers, but no migraine. Had Sid been the only one to see whatever it was, I would have suggested this vision thing as an explanation, but clearly can't be the case here.

Incidentally going back to the hole in the pan thing, I was reminded recently that during WW2, UK households were asked to supply surplus metals to help the war effort. Hundreds of thousands of pans were donated, but proved to be useless due to the very poor quality of the metal used. No idea what happened to them.

There was a similar drive to take down iron railings and gates, supposedly to be turned into weapons. I think the process of recycling them into useful weapons-grade metal proved problematic. These campaigns have sometimes been reinterpreted as a form of morale-boosting exercise, designed to encourage a feeling of national unity and participation. :sold:

Could it be that Sid was indeed the only person to see it, but it was the result of a brief "funny turn" that spooked the customers when they witnessed his suddenly changed expression or movement? He scared them away because of a physical condition?

The problem with the sparkler hypothesis is that the sparklers persist for some time.

In my case they traveled around the orbit of the eye before fading away. Never any headache though

Exactly. The visual aura thing can be a preamble to petit mal seizures, in which the victim is not aware of any time passing, but to other observers, the victim may be staring blankly and unresponsive.

Mine lasted about six minutes. they started appearing at the top right of my vision, then progresses around the top side and went away at the bottom left. It was just the right eye that did this. And I could see it even with eyes closed.
