Doppelganger Experience?

Today, I went to Walmart, the place that sees me 7 times a week haha, on my way to my mother's. I had to pick up some things for her, and I got in line behind this woman in a self check out. Well, she kept trying to pay for things with cash, and the machine kept jamming. I was running late, as it had already taken me longer than planned, and here I was, stuck behind this woman, getting later and later and later..... I was feeling frustrated. I kept thinking I needed to get on to my mother's because she needed to eat her breakfast. (she is a brittle, type 1 diabetic, and needs to eat on a very regular schedule).

Anyway, I get out to the car, and my mother called me, and before she could really say anything, I said I am on my way, she said okay, and I left. I didn't think any more about it, till I got there. I walked in, and she said that about 15 minutes before, (just before she called me) she said she heard me come in, and even heard me say something, and Smokey Jo, the cat, ran to greet me like she always does. Then she said something to me, and I didn't answer, so she went into the living room, and that is when she realized I wasn't there. That is when she called me.

Well, this isn't the first time things like this have happened in relation to my mother. I did it once in high school, and then here while back, there was a similar incident to the one above. I wasn't stuck behind a woman in the self check out, but otherwise it was similar. I think each time it was triggered by a strong need to be somewhere, and being unable to be there physically at the time I was needing to be there.

Has anyone else ever experienced this?
