the number 13

5 January, 2005 (05:56) | Ramblings

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.”

    Funny, I just noticed this last week at the Cleveland airport. The teminals do not have any “Gate 13”.
