Help!! Kitchen utensils disappearing!!
OK, I kind of noticed this for a while. Very gradually table knives and forks will just go who knows where within the last year. Maybe they somehow got thrown away after some meal or mistakenly by visitors-you know the ones I have every blue moon. Anyway, just buy more (which I did). But, now, of the new ones I bought, all are gone except for 2 forks, 2 knives and most of the spoons (but still not all) in just the last month and a half or so. There is even a knife I used just last night to peel an apple--GONE!!

This is just a little more than I can over look now. So, has anyone else had this phenomenon happen or should I just get my brain scanned for that tumor.

Thanks a lot for any help. :hi:

3. Well, my niece moved in a few months ago
I asked her about it and she said she was wondering the same thing. She said the same thing happens at her mother's house. I even checked her room just to see if anything was missed. Nope.

7. yes, but the amount and the time it took has sped up
during the time she has been here. But, I bought the new ones before she moved in. I don't think she did anything with them. She's never had a personality to do anything weird. And, yes, it was happening before she moved in.

8. I was thinking that maybe she brought "someone" with her.
However, since it happened before as well, that doesn't seem likely.

14. Yeah, like a poltergeist for example.
They tend to hang out around troubled teens.

19. I agree with Jackpine
Teens have a LOT of energy and not a lot of control over it, so it's zinging all over the place--prime pickins for an entity to get a "charge".

2. Personally, I have come to consider the concept of object permanence
to be an unproved, and probably invalid, theory.

Seriously, I don't know what's going on. Poltergeists? Anything else strange? You live in an old or new place?

6. I'm living in the same house I've been in since I was born
over 30 years ago. And, no I haven't really noticed any else strange in the last 5 years or so. But I can't say the same when my mother was sick and just after she passed away going on 8 years ago.

5. Do you have a dishwasher?
Washers and dryers eat socks. Could your automatic dishwasher be eating your flatware?

9. No, I don't have a dish washer. Her mother
dose and she said they would have the same conversation about the socks and the dryer and the silverware and the dish washer. But, none of that applies to me. sigh...

12. Socks migrate or something.
And then there are coathangers. They breed in my closet, and the larvae show up all over my office. The larval stage of a coathanger is a paperclip, in case you didn't know.

16. Sounds like you've got an entity
And your niece might be "helping" them move physical objects just by being there--the entity can pull energy from her to help him/her move things more easily--the entity could do it alone (before your niece moved in) but utilizing her energy makes it easier to accomplish.

Personal experiences:

When I was little, we moved into a house where a little boy died just before we moved in (terrible story of abuse). Anyway, I had his bedroom, and he would constantly take my toys. Somehow, at 9 years old, I knew enough to say to the air, quite clearly, "Okay, give it back." And then I'd go out into the hallway for a few minutes. When I went back into my bedroom, the thing I was looking for was invariably in the middle of my bed or on the floor next to it (where I had just looked).

In our present house we have the ghost of a former housekeeper. She keeps letting the cats out onto the sleeping porch off the back bedroom (that door has a deadbolt but apparently it doesn't matter). And I've had a rash of broken wineglasses. No other glassware breaks--just the wineglasses--and they all break in very improbable ways. The weirdest one was when Mr. MG got one out of the cupboard and put it on the kitchen island--it was made of really thick handblown glass, but when he put it down on the island, not knocking against it in any way, it "exploded", he said. VERY strange stuff.

So in the past year or so we've broken about half of our wineglasses. (Luckily we had too many to begin with.) The other day I nearly 86-ed another one by bumping it as it sat on the counter waiting to be washed, but I caught it. It nearly happened again about an hour or two later, the same way, and I had an epiphany. Seems Beatrice (that's her name) has a problem with the "demon drink". She lived here during Prohibition and I believe she was a big proponent of temperance. So now she tries to deter me and Mr. MG from drinking alcohol. As soon as I realized that and asked her to stop breaking our glasses (by causing all those improbable accidents), she backed off, and we haven't had any more broken wineglasses.

My point is that you can talk to the entity who's "stealing" your cutlery--or perhaps is trying to "help" and not realizing that s/he is hindering instead--and simply ask them to stop. Unless you've got a pooka/poultergeist who's trying to push your buttons, the entity will stop. Give it a try--you've got nothing to lose except more forks! :D

17. Brain tumor.
Hee. Just kidding. I don't know. I'm not really "picking up" anything of a supernatural nature, though.

18. Check under your niece's bed
when I was a teen that's where a lot of coffeecups and utensils ended up. Oddly, my kids did the same thing when they were teens.
