Only Coincidence?

Normally I don't engage in internet surveys, but last time I was moving house I did one relating to phone companies. I had some pretty bad things to say about my phone carrier in the survey, and a few hours later my phone was cut off. Coincidence? Yes. My phone was meant to be cut off anyway, though they did it a few days early. But of course that one action followed the other made me see a connection between the two. Even though I know it's silly to think that one action caused the other, on some level I can't help but see a connection between the two. Training the mind to distinguish between the obviously absurd with the intuitively linked is harder than it sounds.
