Death comes in threes

That old wives tale about death coming in threes seems to hold true. Though there's no logical reason for it. I remember past occurrences, but more recently; someone My GF knows from work died 2 days ago, one 9of the owners of my company lost her father 2 days ago, and our operations manager just left because he had a sudden death in the family.
Again, I’m not really a superstitious person, but it does seem to be the case.
How many of you if any have seen similar results?

Buses allways come in threes, well in London they do. Yeah, I know what your saying but don't want to go into it. It is strange, but I put it down to coincidence.

Perhaps fours

Update. Perhaps fours. One of the other owners' father just died too.

So lets tally, within 3 days:

-One friend of my GF
-One of the owners' father
-Ops manager's family member
-Another of the owners' father.


WTF!?!?!

That sounds like a curse to me.

Did they all visit King Tutankhamun's tomb at the same time, and do something defiling...?

I'm Havent heard of this b4. very strange. But I did hear a local story about a rare coin.

Story goes that a person had a rare coin dated back from the civil war era and each time the coin was switched from person to person the last person to hold it or sell it died.

seemed a little screwey to me but that fucker should be up in Ripleys lmao :D

I never said they were all male. the one that died at my GF's job was a woman. And the ones that were male died due to stress produced by a woman.

It's funny you mention that because not too long ago (less than a month) our family friend, Barb died of Cancer. Later, a school friend died of diabetes (she didn't know she had it) in her sleep, and more recently my friends got in a car accident this monday and one of them, Fernando died instantly.
These past months suck.

Thanks, guys. What's weird is, I am sad but I am not as sad as I think I should be. It's got me more thinking about death than anything. I don't really believe in an after life right now, and it's a scary thing to think about where people go after death. I can't bare to think of nothingness. Thanks for the support though.
The other day a counciler from my school called my room phone at 9 in the morning telling me that they were there on campus and checking in on me. I have no idea where the call came from, because I am not depressed and I haven't spoken about death or anything really. I asked around the dorms and no one else got the call. Weird. Maybe my mom called and told them to check up on me.
