A little curious fact

Our Hospital has cUbicles in their A&E dept., each with a letter & a number, but I have noticed that there are no number 13 among them.I suppose it might upset patients to be in number 13,especially if they are seriously ill

I'd want to move if they put me in cubicle 13, might be a load of old twaddle about it being unlucky but I wouldn't want to risk it

You might just disappear forever in cubicle 13. What a great idea for a book.

Read 'Room 13' by M R James (a Victorian-Edwardian author of ghost stories), then go into cubicle 13.

Re: A little curious fact

13 isn't unlucky.

3 + 1 = 4.

So, 13 = 4.

Aha. Numerology at work I see.

No. 13 doesn't bother me. My birthday is on the 13th, so it wouldn't do to be frightened of it would it.

You will also find that on cruise ships with up to 15 or more decks, there is no deck 13. The lift buttons go 10, 11, 12, 14 etc
