DO YOU HAVE PARASKEVIDEKATRIAPHOBIA? (FEAR OF FRIDAY THE 13TH)


This will be a short post.  I have to go hide under my bed!!  Thanks to the “Friday the 13th” movies, I no longer trust anyone wearing a hockey mask & carrying a machete.


A man bought a new Mercedes to celebrate his wife leaving him and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him. "There's no way they can catch a Mercedes," he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle hit 90, 100.....Then the reality of the situation hit him. "What am I doing?" he thought and pulled over.

The cop came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car. "It's been a long hard day, this is the end of my shift and it's Friday the 13th. I don't feel like more paperwork, I don't need the frustration or the overtime, so if you can give me a really good excuse for your driving that I haven't heard before, you can go."

The guy thinks about it for a second and says, "Last week my nagging wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back!"

"Have a nice weekend," said the officer. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Roger left for work on the morning of Friday 13th.  Friday was payday, so instead of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with the boys and spending his entire pay packet.

Finally, Roger appeared at home on Sunday night, and obviously he was confronted by his angry wife, Martha, who castigated Roger for nearly two hours with a tirade befitting his actions.  Finally, Martha stopped the nagging and said to Roger, “How would you like it if you didn’t see me for two or three days?”

Roger replied grimly, “That would be fine with me.”

Monday went by and he didn’t see his Martha. Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results.

On  Thursday, the swelling went down just enough so that Roger he could see Martha a little out of the corner of his left eye.









It's Friday the 13th. Avoid ladders, black cats and ridiculous superstitions----fishducky

  1. Nah. Not one of my myriad fears. Or black cats. I don't trust ladders though. Sneaky devils they are...

    1. And mirrors terrify me. Broken or not.

    2. Mirrors never used to bother me until some old lady (who looks a lot like me) stood right in front of me whenever I tried to look in one!!

  2. Friday the 13th has never bothered me; in fact is has often been lucky. Today was especially lucky. Last Tuesday I lost something very important to me, it slipped out of my jacket pocket while on a bus and i thought it was gone forever. But today, Friday 13th, it was returned to me, completely intact.

  4. My son's sports jersey numbers were always 13. They didn't bring him bad luck, but then they also didn't make him a pro.

  5. I'm not superstitious. Doesn't Friday the Thirteenth come from Judas's betrayal of Jesus?

  6. I have no superstitions. Some how I feel like I am missing something. It would be nice to be able to put the blame for mishaps somewhere else.

  7. Nope, not superstitious. I think maybe those of us who were born on the 13th are less likely to have a phobia about it. Matter of fact, I've always thought of thirteen as being lucky. (Knock on wood...)

  10. I won the Bald guys have more sex and I'm now basking in the glory of it all. I usually work on Friday the 13 so I don't have time to be afraid of anything.

Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
