We have a Friday the 13th this month

I am a little superstitious. I don’t like to make plans on Friday the 13th.

Ooh, it’s next week. You’re post made me curious as to the origins of this superstition so I looked it up:

“The superstition appears to be related to the extreme tragedy of the Trials of the Knights Templar which started with their arrest in Friday 13 October 1307, which was perpetrated by Philip IV of France and his counselors with aims to acquire the wealth of the Templars.”

Friday the 13th - Wikipedia.


I don’t know why, but they’re usually bad days at work. Fridays are always challenging already because that’s when people pick up their new vehicle purchases. The entire day is a mad scramble of adding new vehicles, deleting trade-ins, and issuing liability certificates for people who let you know what they bought while they’re waiting at a dealership and you have two customers ahead of them.

Friday the 13th will be this times two.

When I used to work I always found that things went wrong on Friday the 13th. I know it’s not magical, there has to be a logical explanation, but it always seemed to be the case.

Interesting, I always thought it was just because of the movie “Friday the 13th”
