Friends Beware! I am BAD luck!!

On Friday there was quite a bit of excitement on our floor, and other floors as well. At about 9:30, I heard shouts as several of the Geoscientists sat in horror, in their office, watching as a man rammed and rammed his car on the 12th floor parking deck trying to drive his car off the top. In the end, it didn’t work, so he got out of his car and threw himself off the top, falling to his death.

Later that day, I saw the final dregs of that clean up… several blocks of downtown were blocked off with police, fire and rescue workers trying to get all of the things taken care of that needed to be taken care of after someone does the unthinkable and takes their own life.

This morning, one of my colleague asked me if I knew the fella, whose profile link she sent me. I came down and said yes, he was a good friend, why? In a moment of carelessness on her part, she just dumped on me that he was the jumper that everyone was all talking about on Friday. I became very upset. She didn’t seem to notice and kept going on, not noticing that I just walked out of the office.

Later, I found that she had also told every one and their donkey that I knew, and was in fact a very good friend of said jumper.

Honestly woman, didja have to?

So, my friends, you are officially on notice, I am bad luck. I have lost at least 3 friends in the last year. I’m unlucky. I’m jinxed.

Take care, be safe, and for goodness sake if you’re feeling suicidal talk to someone. Honestly, you can’t change your mind. It’s permanent.

Love and Blessings,

    Juli, bad things happen and sometimes we are more or less involved but you had nothing to do with this. You can’t take the blame. If you could I’m in a hell of a lot of trouble for things I’ve been sucked into over the years. As for that woman, ask her if she’d like to purchase one of my do it your ownself lobotomy kits. She’s obviously in dire need of one.

    Okay, this is only about the tragic thing I’ve heard. I’m very sorry for this Juli but no, I’m sorry, I can’t accept you’re bad luck. Sometimes it seems such things are a year of the locust so to speak and it seems everything is falling apart other times it seems like nothing can go wrong…why is this? Not sure but if you ever do find out let me know. I just am now sorting through my mail after being off the grid for the last five days. No matter what you’ve always been a blessing to me. Sometimes you can’t reach those that are right there next to you but that doesn’t make it your fault.
