Thursday Thirteen (9th)

13 hints that it might be a Bad Day

1. You stroll on over to get the suggestions out of your suggestion box at work and hear it ticking…

2. Your horn goes off accidentally and remains stuck as you follow a group of Hell's Angels on the freeway.

3. People send your wife sympathy cards on your anniversary.

4. The pest exterminator crawls under your house and never comes out.

5. It takes you three hours to make minute rice.

6. Your wife says: "Good morning, Bill" and your name is George.

7. You realize that you just sprayed spot remover under your arms instead of deodorant.

8. The Gypsy fortune teller offers to refund your money when she sees your future.

9. You call Suicide Prevention and they put you on hold

10. You discover that your 12-year-old's idea of humor is putting crazy glue in your Preparation H.

11. Your car payment, house payment, and girlfriend are three months overdue.

12. You realize that the phone number on the bathroom wall of the bar is yours.

13. The bird singing outside your window is a vulture.

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged!

Great list. Add - You call 911, and they hang up after getting your address. Happened to my daughter's friend's mother - she called 911, and they hung up, after she told them she thought her husband was dead. They sent a coroner, without finding out anything else!
