Do You Think Bad Things Really Do Come In Threes?

Thu May 10, 2001 4:00 pm

I'm sure you've heard the saying....Bad things always come in 3's.

Anybody believe in this?

Have you ever had it happen to you?

If I had been in 2 plane crashes in one weeks' time, should I step aboard the third flight? Probably should be glad I survived the first two, eh, and leave well enough alone.

My car seems to break down in threes

Last time:

Starter motor
right hand ball joint
exhaust (although i liked the sound of the engine with no mufflers)

If you were in 2 plane crashes in a week, I would say buy lottery tickets NOW!!!! The odds of that would be off the radar screen.

Yes, bad things do happen in threes. They also happen in 4's, 7's, and 1067's. It is a matter of when you stop counting.

I don't know about in threes, but I always say that when shit happens it happens all at once! I always have a bunch of bad things happen together.

I was just in my 3rd plane crash this month!!

Why, oh why, do so many pilots these days INSIST upon playing chess in the cockpit while on final approach??

 Smile/happy/getting dizzy Just kidding. This was just my 2nd crash this week. So, I'm still waiting for the third.

But bad things always happen to baseball players in 3's ........ 3 strikes....I'm out; 3 outs.....another blown scoring chance.

I don't normally go along with superstitions, but this one seems to have some credibilty.

In March my Aunt died age 80. Good age, but sad.

In April my sisters father in law died. Aged 61 Too young.

Two weeks ago My dear Mother died battling cancer. She was only sick for six weeks, and then she died.

I shall bury my mother today at 3pm. She was only 67. No age is too old to lose a mother.

RIP, Mum..................
