Ok, so, I work this Friday, the 13th of June and no, I am not superstitious about THAT, but I will say this: I never *ever* utter the "q" word on my floor, cause if I do, I am certain the Labor Patient Bus will pull up with a cadre of needy women about to give birth any moment. That, and I utter a silent prayer on the elevator on my way up that NOTHING bad happen to any patients on my shift today or if it does, that I am on top of it. I dunno, somehow, it gives me a sense of peace to do this. NO hard facts support that either of my traditions mean a thing, yet I adhere strongly to them.
SO how bout it, anyone have "superstitions" or other believes/chants/mantras to ward off "bad things" from happening???? This enquiring mind wants to know!!
