You’ll Deal with 543 Unlucky Events This Year

One in five people consider themselves to be “unlucky,” according to a new poll.  And it’s not for no reason.

The average person will experience 543 unlucky events this year.  That’s just over 10 a week.  But one in 10 think Leap Years are luckier than normal years.  (???)  So maybe you’ll have a few less than that in 2024?

People were asked to name the unluckiest things that can happen to you on any given day.  Here are the Top 10 . . .

1.  Losing something.  (Is that really “bad luck,” or were you just not paying attention?)

2.  Stepping in dog poop.

3.  Spilling on yourself.

4.  When you hit every red light.

5.  A flat tire.

6.  A car drives by and splashes you with water.

7.  Losing a competition or contest.  Like a lottery ticket that doesn’t hit.

8.  Tripping or falling down in public.

9.  You try to order something at a restaurant, but they’re out of it.

10.  Getting caught in the rain with no umbrella.

One more random stat:  Three in four people have been pooped on by a bird, which is supposed to be GOOD luck . . . and 37% of us would welcome it again.
