Unlucky Uncle Ungus Waits for Bad Luck

“Ah great!” said Unlucky Uncle Ungus. “Today is Friday the 13th.”

Unlucky Uncle Ungus never liked Friday the 13th. He was born on Friday the 13th and he was cheated out of the career of his dreams because of Friday the 13th. Unlucky Uncle Ungus wanted to be a banker but he was told because of his date of birth that he would be too unlucky to manage money.

“I will wait for all the bad luck to happen today,” said Unlucky Uncle Ungus.

Unlucky Uncle Ungus made himself two boiled eggs for breakfast with two pieces of toast. He expected the eggs to be under-cooked and he expected his toast to be burnt. To his surprise, however, the eggs were cooked perfectly and the toast was a light golden brown.

“That is a surprise,” said Unlucky Uncle Ungus. “Usually breakfast on Friday the 13th’ never turns out.”

Unlucky Uncle Ungus went outside to check the mail. He was expecting to find hefty bills that he couldn’t afford to pay. Instead, he found a cheque that he had been waiting months for.

“I can’t believe I am actually having good luck on Friday the 13th,” said Unlucky Uncle Ungus. “Am I sure that today is actually Friday the 13th?”

Unlucky Uncle Ungus checked his calendar. He realized that it was only Friday the 6th.

“No wonder I am not having any bad luck,” said Unlucky Uncle Ungus. “I have another week to go until it is Friday the 13th.”

  • Always check your calendar to make sure you have the right date.
  • Example: Unlucky Uncle Ungus thought it was Friday the 13th but he found out differently when he looked at his calendar.
