Blame Someone Else

I’m a little late on this one.  It’s not my fault though.

Yep, it’s official. Today is Blame Someone Else Day – the first Friday the 13th of each year. And since there is only one Friday the 13th this entire year, today’s your only chance to blame others all day long. So have at it. You don’t have to take responsibility for anything that goes wrong. And you can blame someone else for all the problems, mistakes and unfairness in your life. According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina, an estimated 17 to 21 million people in the United States are affected by a fear of this day. Some people are so paralyzed by fear that they avoid their normal routines in doing business, taking flights or even getting out of bed. According to Wikipedia “It’s been estimated that $800-$900 million is lost in business on this day.”
