I don't believe in a greater being, afterlife, horoscopes, flying saucers and add whatever nonsense you like to suggest.
So really, you could call this culture rather than superstitions, but you won't find me choosing the number 13 in a lottery, nor the unlucky Asian number, 4.
I do not walk under ladders, in fact I stay clear of any overhead workmen, especially since I was showered with building debris twice, once in Centre Road, Bentleigh, and once in High Street, Prahran.
Two other old superstitions I take note of, because R yells at me if I forget them, do not put new shoes on a table and do not open an umbrella indoors.
One more, do not give knives as a gift, and if you really want to, the recipient must pay you at least a token amount.
My grandmother lectured me about never changing the calendar month page before the new month arrived. She would change her calendar at the end of the month when she got up at night to go to the lavvy.
Like to tell me about yours, or places where you have noticed that there is not a 13 or a 4? Eg, we lived in a flat once where there were 26 flats but there was a flat numbered 27. Yep, no thirteen.
It is only in one of our lifts, but the external display does not show the fourth floor. The indicator is just blank four the fourth floor. Do not upset the prospective Asian buyers.
