Hat on a Bed

The interview will be depicted by initials. The Interviewer is QB and the interview is BL.

QB: Were there any other superstitions that your dad or family followed?

BL: Yeah there was one more, and basically it was that it was very unlucky to put your hat on top of the bed. I honestly have no idea why that was considered bad luck, but my dad just made it a point to teach everyone not to do it. So yeah…I never put my hat on my bed.

Analysis: Once again I think it is interesting just how much superstition can effect a person. Even though the student had no understanding of why placing a hat on the bed was unlucky, they still made a point to follow the rule. Following the family rules are also very prevalent here.
