    I thought the thread said bad luck steak. Im bloody hungry now.

    I don’t see it as bad luck. More of a set of variables expiring at the same time.

    I’l give a example. When I help clients plan stuff financially. Certain things will happen. Its not a matter of IF, but WHEN.
    It can be seen as bad luck if some of those variables expire at the same time, eg, car breaking down/dying, being laid off, eating bad food and getting the shits etc.

    When they do happen, how hard do you hit that bump in the road…?

    Or can you make decisions that may avoid some of the events? Or can some decisions be made that help space out the events..?

    I personally feel the human mind at a subconscious level is always trying to make sense of things. If it can’t it creates a big problem. The processing loop must be closed.
    So if a series of events happen, calling it a bad luck streak (or steak! God im so hungry!) gives the mind a tool to close that loop.

    Got rear ended hit and run while parking on the street at work in my new car

    Passed a photo radar truck hiding on bridge (no ticket in the mail ever came. Success)

    Grandpa passed away

    Dog got diagnosed with Diabetes



    But then all my bad luck ended when I took my dog for a walk in my community. Took a different route this time, and along the route, saw something shimmering in the grass. It was a $5 bill Good luck bill

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    I went 6 years without any tickets but this year I caught a speed-on-green, a photo radar and a Banff speed trap. The Calgary trifecta. Also hurt myself on an e-scooter.

    My record is two speeding tickets, a parking ticket (plus a tow) And an illegal turn all within 36 hours.

    One of my in-laws was up in Edmonton to buy a vehicle, couldn't find the place so was driving around the block looking for the address - got nailed 3 separate times by the same photo radar van, 3 tickets in the mail.

    This isn't bad luck it's your fault for breaking the law and getting caught thought.

    over and over, you can get angry at yourself for this not "bad luck"

    Not saying I haven't ever going faster, or done anything illegal but i wouldn't consider it "bad luck" if i got busted, it's my own fault.

    Well, yes, the tickets themselves aren't bad luck but the clustering of the events was certainly noteworthy, and that's what most people would consider "luck".
