Do You Have Paraskavidekatriaphobia?

Do you have this problem? Paraskavidekatriaphobia is a fear of the number 13.

If you have it, then you were probably nervous all day, because it was Friday the 13th.

The Phobia Institute of Asheville, North Carolina, says this superstition costs a lot of businesses a lot of money, because some people with that fear will not travel or even drive to work when the calendar says Friday the 13th.
