Well this evening at 11-30pm UK time my laptop has been sweeped, cleaned, scanned all diagnostics sorted out and is now just doing the updating..it has FULL McAfee Anti-Spyware on it..and now is FREE from all viruses and Hackers also it has been made a secure line...all thanks to the GEEK SQUAD ....But the next thing that happened my son turned the TV on when he got home from work and it BLEW UP!! OH WHAT..are my spirit family playing jokes with me or what..everything that seems to be electrical seems to be going wrong or blowing up...there is now one other thing that will be on its way out..everything happens in three's with me.. The Discussion Does this happen to you when one thing goes wrong other things start breaking down or blow up on you? And have you ever counted how many things go wrong when it has happened...please share

For us things go in threes if not more! Last year, the fridge went, the microwave went and then the phone. This year we had problems with both vehicles so had to pay out more for inspection for the van, truck still isnt inspected (no money to fix it) and found we have a leak in the pipes for the outside wood stove/furnace. UGHHH Things seem to happen like that thou, all you can do is try and get things under control while not losing it.

Yeah, of course, misfortunes never go single. If one thing goes wrong in my life, there will definitely some others appear. Likewise, happinesses will do the same thing. I consider that maybe because this one thing affect our mood and therefore result in benign circle or vicious circle. I never count the number, either because i'm too happy or i'm too depressed to care, i just let meself dip in the situation and be sad or joyful with all the heart i have. Manage our emotions, these won't act the same way, however, it's pricky to manage emotions you know that

Hi lynette, yes you are right about the emotions I am sure that these patches of misfortune happen due to emotions...yet even through these things I do manage to try and find the funny side of it hopefully the good things are starting my nephew is getting rid of his three piece suite in 3-4 wks time and has offered it to me which is badly needed so that will be a lovely Christmas pressie...thanks for your kind words...littleowl

Recently my DVD player blowed up, and a pair of weeks later my sound system blowed up too... I believe that the connection of the house is not polarized and a storm ruine some components of those apparatuses. This problen is strange, because that only went ruined the sound systems.

Hi BYOLA'-that is amazing it just makes me wonder at times how come when something electrical goes then so do a lot of other things..still guess there is one more thing to go yet as it normally all goes in threes with me LOL...littleowl

one cant really explain why these things happen but they do all the same i guess the best we can do is to make sure that we take good care of every asset we have but when they do happen to have faults we should not fuss too much over them.

Hi Littleowl, Firstly glad that you have managed to sort the laptop out at last and please do make sure you go back to the original company and complain as that is £80 you can now do with to help get another TV eh! I think if you are expecting a third thing it will happen so don't let the auto suggestion of it kick in, electrical problems as well as being spirit world games can be due to high stress levels too. Funnily enough an almost brand new TV of mine blew up the other week but only flat screen available as replacement so it done me a favour really as now have one HD ready with freeview installed and also DVD player within it too which leaves a lot less wires and more space. To me the message from the laptop problem was extra protection needed which you did go and get but perhaps on another level too. Heres to nothing else going wrong. Love & hugles. Ellie :D

Hi Ellie you are so intune about the spirit world and stress levels is very true..Tamara knows that one with me very well,she used to be my supervisor when cleaning and whenever I got upset and stressed everything electrical started going wrong..she even got stuck in the lift wonce cos of it!!! Also the place was haunted as the sprits had made themselves known to me..so you are right on that level ...as for the laptop that has now crashed, the TV blew up last night and my son's headlamp blew tonight!! Hopefully the three things have happened now but the funny thing was last night as I went to bed I just hoped nothing would do wrong with his car ,,oops shouldn't have even thought it,,could tell you quite a few stories..one day I will..lots of love and Huggles littleowl

Maybe it's astrological and sometimes the stars align to make things go wrong in batches, littleowl. We had a week a few months back where several things blew up or broke one after the other. It was a disaster, and very expensive! Hopefully there will also be times when we won't have to replace anything for ages ... my Mum says things happen in threes, but this particular week I think we had almost three lots of threes - the bad luck just kept on coming!

Hi littleowl, That sucks! i know what you'r like, are you sure its not you thats doing it again when you'r upset you blow your tops and every thing electric blows as well, you done that to my video and it still don't work. Maybe it can be a fault in the tv that made it blow. Well hope nothing else will go wrong, keep cool. Bright Blessings Tamara

Hi ya littleowl I do think things do come in threes, well they always seem to. If my mum comes up to visit there is always something she needs to bring with her. If it is only two things then we both say that we will have to think of a third so that way she won't forget!! I do hope things get better for you soon!

(((((littleowl)))) It always happens that way, doesn't it? A couple of years ago, I came home from work, and the fridge had gone out. I went and got another one. The day after I bought the fridge and had it installed, I came home to my 4 young adults, sopping water up off the kitchen floor. They had used every towel, blanket and whatever else they could find to dry the floor. I thought the plumbing had burst in the wall or something. No, the bottom of the water heater had fallen out and flooded the place. Had to go that afternoon and order a new one. Not long after that, my washing machine decided to start slinging some kind of grease onto the clothes as they were being washed, then it stopped running altogether...with a full tub of water, no less. Immediately after that was replaced, the dryer started squeeling like bad brakes on a car, and went out. So, I sympathize with ya, darlin. Just hang in there, ok?*S*

Hi Bohenian'-my that was bad..the expense must of been astronomical!! It is just so strange that one electrical item goes a load more do it's as if they are in sympathy or unison with each other-well my other coomputer has crashed but it's not the end of the world I still have this one..and my son is trying to sort out the TV end of things..have calmed down now and what has happened has happened..it's life eh? Sometimes it just gives you a bum deal but things work out in the end...thanks for your kind words of encouragement...hugs littleowl

I've never counted the things that went wrong in groups, but it does seem like if one things is broken and getting fixed then something else goes wrong
@littleowl (7157)

That is great to hear. I am so sorry to hear about your tv though. It sounds like you have my luck. I have heard that things happen in threes also. I have lost count of all of the bad things that happen to me. Alot of times, it is more than three at a time.

I don't think I've ever counted how many things go wrong at once but it seems that when it rains it pours. One thing after another. Last year we lost our DVD player and VCR within a week of each other. Then a couple weeks later our microwave caught fire. I thought there was something wrong with the wiring in the house for awhile but it was evidently just a coincidence... or gremlins
