I hate bad luck. And dying prematurely is the worst bad luck there is! I don’t know about you, but I go through these strings of bad luck every several years, which makes me question whether I’m sometimes cursed.
For example, Rhino wouldn’t start one morning so I had to call roadside assistance to have them jump him so I could then drop him off at the service department. He was in the shop for a couple days and the day after I picked him up, he wouldn’t start again! I had to cancel my roadtrip to Lake Tahoe that morning to take him back to the shop and waste another couple hours of time. While I was driving around in a rental car, I was pulled over and given a $160 ticket because I was looking (not touching) at my phone on the center console for directions while stopped in traffic. If Rhino had never died, I never would have got a ticket because my phone would be in the phone mount as usual. Curses!
The reason why I hate bad luck is because it’s outside of our control. We can do everything right, but still not succeed due to unfortunate circumstances. As they say, it’s better to be lucky than good! I see life insurance as a bad luck insurance policy.
