For most, bad luck is fleeting. A state of being that only comes at the worst possible times. For me, however, I experience chronic bad luck. From being accused of cheating while really just loaning my friend and eraser to getting put on the wrong bus to the inner city I have had it all. This bad luck never ceases to surprise me.
