You know the old saying “see a penny, pick it up, all the day you’ll have good luck!” Let me tell you, its not true ;’-)
The other day coming home from the airport, I saw a ‘penny’ (actually it was a 1 euro cent piece) lying on the ground at the bus station, where I was hoping to catch the next bus home.
I bent down to pick it up, the old saying ‘played’ in my head, I smiled, looking forward to the good luck coming my way.
Ten minutes later I discovered I had lost my bus ticket (my Opal pass with about $40 credit on it) and about $100 out of my pocket. ‘Good luck’ my ^$$! 😀
Some say it was ‘good luck’ I discovered that I had lost my bus ticket so quickly, as I was able to cancel it straight away, preventing it being used and preserving my balance
Some say it was ‘lucky’ I didn’t lose all the money in my wallet and my iPhone, which was in the same pocket as the money I lost, as I was able to buy another ticket to get home
I say “I don’t know what planet you are from?!!” but I did not have ‘good luck’ that day!
I still have the ‘penny’, maybe I should throw it away before it causes me any more ‘good luck’ but I am superstitious and am afraid that will cause even more bad luck.
One thing for sure, its going to stay lying on a table at home. I won’t be picking that ‘penny’ up again!
