The speaker's mom's partner, who was also present, was skeptical and scared by the occurrences.

The speaker was unsure if her partner would be open to discussing the incidents further. The events included the speaker's chair falling down, Sarah's chair falling down, and both chairs falling down at the same time, with no distance between them when they were on the floor. The speaker's mom came down to check on them, and they all laughed about the situation.
