the number 13
what’s up with the number 13? just because the elevator in most hotels doesn’t have a 13 button, desn’t mean that there isn’t a 13th floor. Seriously, is that really necessary?? I could see it being a cute little joke in vegas, but when i stay in a sheraton in cleveland, there’s no need to lie about it.
And just on the opposite side, the baker’s dozen. 13. Why don’t people flip out like they are getting a curse when they get 13 of something? I just bought hangers at walmart, and they come in packages of 13. wtf?? i mean, you have to have that as a predetermined mark. 13 is such an odd number, as if 12 hangers wouldn’t be enough. what the crap. i want to see the cost analysis report on that one. “Sir, if we ship out 13 hangers in a package instead of 12, we can save 5 cents per shipment.”2,544 views
