    I Was Not Superstitious...until One Day I Got A Job Far From Home.

    It was 400 miles away . It was tough moving that far. There was hardly any housing there. I hadn't moved into a place so I went and got a p.o. box. It was 1313. I laughed it off until I got fired a month later. No job, renting a room. I never have 13 of anything now. I am...

    The number '13' itself

    and any number ending with '13'. I also get spooked by broken or cracked mirrors (it's the broken or distorted image that looks back @ u). I don't mind black cats (owned one for like 12 yrs) or walking under ladders (I just make sure I look up before walking under). And I won...

    When We Get Luck Does Someone Else Pay For It?

    "Over here" (in my life) there is a superstition that if you find a headsup penny, then the person who lost that penny in effect pays for your good fortune. When I leave pennies in a Have A Penny Need a Penny, they are always tails up.

    Slightly Superstitious

    As long as I can remember I have been slightly superstitious. I always always always hold my breath and turn off my radio when I drive by a cemetery, I can't walk on a crack, and I have to open a window after somebody dies at my work (CNA at a nursing home)

    To Be Or Not to Be Superstitious

     What I like in superstition is 'super' . I like the idea that things are more than what they seem to be.  I can hardly  separate aesthetism from superstition. If you somewhat believe in beauty you are superstitious. You believe. That something is good. And to me such...

    Say 'no' to Crying

    Crying brings bad luck. I used to fight against my tears from flowing out or at least reducing the volume of tears being produced during the process. Sounds weird though.

    Umbrella'S Indoors And Three Drains

    I'm not particularly superstitious with anything, which is why I haven't joined this group. However, when it comes to people opening umbrella's indoors I go absolutely ballistic. I hate it. It just makes me completely freak out. I used to work in a shop and I hated it when it...

    Some Things I Can't Do

    Truthfully, I believe in the black cat, broken mirror, and walking under ladder superstitions.  I mean, if I see any of them, I do my best to avoid them.  I won't touch mirrors or windows and stay away from the areas with ladders in places like Home Depot.  If there's a black...

    Sometimes I'm Superstitious

    Not always.  I consider black cats to be lucky, and I'll walk under ladders, but I always toss a bit of salt over my shoulder when I spill some. Once I read that gypsy folklore claims it's unlucky to sweep dirt out the door, because you also sweep away the household luck...

    Hasn't Been A Good 24 Hours...

    I just bought lunch and the total came to $13.34 and so the cash register displayed the change on a $20 as $6.66. But they always round me down to the nearest dollar (since I spend so much in there?) so my total came to flat $13.00. Combine that with the nightmare I had last...

    "Hats on the Bed" There

    once was a man who let superstition guide him. All of his days were spent headed not towards anything that could lead to good fortune, but rather away from anything that could bring bad luck. Black cats crossing, open umbrellas indoors, 13's wild, ladders on walkways, punched...
