Like most people, I like to think that good luck and bad luck are a result of the choices we've made. Realistically, most of the bad things that happen to us we probably deserve. Granted, some things are out of our control, but waking up 15 minutes late and missing your bus is definitely on you. 

Naturally, I hate to take responsibility for the mistakes I've made and would much rather blame circumstantial things like bad weather, a poorly designed phone case, or the fact most things don't come with instructions — but deep down I know I can do better. Regardless of where the blame should be placed, some things are just down right unlucky. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time is certainly awkward, but it doesn't make it any less entertaining.
