    Is anyone here superstitious about this day?

    It's almost over here on the east coast. I'm sure some people had a bad day today, but accidents and bad days happen every day. Still I do feel a twinge of irrational apprehension about Friday the 13th.

    Technically I had a very good Friday the 13th because last night I was out with a new pal after midnight last night.

    P.S. Great movie filmed in NJ. :wink:

    (third times a charm, my original thread double posted and a I think a Mod tried to merge it as I was editing the other one to be deleted and .....):eek:

    It just happen to be one of the worst days of my life.

    If you don't have to lose sleep consider yourself lucky, cause the shit that is going on in the world will destroy all peace you might have. Love your women!

    Well we had some really CRAZY folk that came in the store.
    The first was this local guy that gave our seafood guy a really hard time.
    He was cussing and carrying on at him. Then My co-worker said that he went in the back to get away from him.
    After that the guy came up front to where our boss was and starting laying it on him really nasty guy he was.."
    The second one was a girl that I think is pretty cool. But, she had a problem with our girl in Deli.." They had a nasty vibe between each other.
    Then my customer..."
    Here is what happened with mine.."
    The Dumb heafer told this guy that she wanted to go home and go to bed so she can go to Church...." Something in me said WARNING..WARNING..."
    I rung her three items up.. EASY? I think NOT.." I hand her the change.." 60 dollars cash back.." I was going to go to the next customer. But, NO!! she says, this milk is not the right price and also you rung me up wrong. I was like huh? She says I did not want cash back. I was like, Did I make a mistake and hand her FREE money? So, I looked at her reciept and it had 60 dollars cash back. So NOPE I was not wrong. I even took her to show her that the milk was the right price. Then I gave her the other milk. The funny thing was that milk cost MORE !!:biggrin1: HA HA! She was being such a BITCH she did not even realize that!! She kept stressing about the before total, about the 60 cash back. I was like leave the hell out of the store already ...look.." After we got nothing through her thick as hell skull. I said, please come back again. Then as all of the Meth heads in Hawaii say, NOT to you!!!!! I was like GREAT one less FREAK I have to deal with.." I am just so glad that we have less than one year left here..."
    This is the worst Place to work and I held jobs all over the darn world!!

    I actually like them so I guess I'm superstitious in a good way.

    It don't seem that long ago that we just had one. Anyone know how frequently this happens. Was friday the 13th on another holiday last time.

    oh here we go

    Be Afraid For the Second Straight Month! Because there are 7 days in a week, there is at least one Friday the 13th each year. Sometimes there are two and occasionally, there are three. This year must be unlucky because there will be three when its all said and done. It looks like to me, though I haven’t researched it fully, that whenever there are three it happens in February, March and November. The next time the trio of malaise shows up will be in 2015 and then again in 2026.

    Not sure this is true but found it with google.

    And seeing as how tomorrow is also Friday the 13th, it seemed oddly necessary to pull this topic back up.


    I missed posting in it the last time as I was in attending a medical matter and was in the ICU.

    I've never been superstitious of Friday the 13th! Funny thing is some of the most positive things have happened to me on previous ones.

    One of our dogs was born on Friday the thirteenth of October 1999. Lucky day! He's a sweetheart and a cutie. No, not superstitious.

    I actually view it as a good luck day. Generally speaking, good things happen to/for me on Friday 13ths.
