Yup, I'm Cursed.First off, I want to state that even though I am writing this story. I do not believe in superstitions or hexes caused by things such as Karma, Breaking Mirrors, etc.
However, it is a interesting thing to prospect... because... my "curse" happens often.
I roll extremely poorly with dice. I play a lot of role-playing games (pen and paper and table top), and I constantly have to roll dice. I've been known to roll extremely low, even when the odds are in my favor. One time, using 8d10 (8 ten sided dice), I rolled all 1s (1 being a very bad number). I can also touch people's dice, or wave my hands over dice to make them roll bad. And nine times out of ten, the dice will roll poorly when I do so. I'm not saying this happens all the time. But I roll extremely poor more than average, and trust me, I design role-playing games; I know statistics. And my dice decided to roll far below average.
I usually have a phone no longer than 6 months, because they break. The worst incident that has happened with phones, is that I tripped in a pot hole, dropped my phone (busting it literally into pieces), and spilling my entire drink all over those pieces. It was like a phone fatality!
I bought an "indestructible" construction grade phone.
I broke it within four months.
So much for "Indestructible"
My manhood is small, I lost a testicle, I've had surgery on it twice, I get kidney stones often. I suffered a UTI once after a surgery. I'll spare you the details.
Scratch Offs (Gambling in General)
I have never gambled and won. EVER. I have played scratch offs, lottery, slot machines, blackjack (I broke even), or raffles. I NEVER WIN ANYTHING.
Oh wait, that's not true.
There was that one time...
I was sitting in the car after getting my food from the Skyline Drive-thru. I got a scratch off card from Skyline. Cincinnati style chili being my favorite food in the whole world. I could win, chili for life. I said to god... "God, I never win... anything... can I just win... a hat or something?"
God answered my prayers.
I won a free York peppermint patty! I was so excited, I ran back inside, placed that sucker flat on the table and redeemed my prize. I told the guy, "I finally won something!", and he replied "Oh, a Peppermint Patty? Well, everyone gets those if they don't win".
I seriously, held back a tear.
I really don't like to count this one, but I'll mention it anyways: Every woman I ever dated cheated on me. I was even engaged at one point. And well... what do you know... she cheated on me. I have a whole other story touching on this particular subject, so I am not going to go into detail in this story.
I may end up adding more to this story. So, stay tuned for an update.
