I was waiting to be the 13th poster

I am not superstitious. I have never heard of the hat on the bed thing or the lights off and sweeping thing.

It is interesting how some superstitions get started though. I read that some people many years ago were unhappy that their servants were breaking so many mirrors, so they told them that it was bad luck to break mirrors. The servants apparently were superstitous and starting being more careful. I don't know if that is true, but I read it a few months ago.

When I was learning to fly an airplane I soloed on Friday the thirteenth. Since I worked construction back then, I just may have walked under a ladder, too.

I once worked at our county jail as a cook and we had one inmate that would go berserk if some one would put their hat on his bed and then go through all kind of motions and rituals before he would sit down
