Blame Someone Else Day
When : The first Friday the 13th of the year.
What a great time you can have on this day. Imagine all the problems, errors, and mistakes you could heap on someone else today. On this day you don't have to take responsibility, or the blame, for any faux pas on your part. On the downside, this day comes as a double edged sword. While you are busy putting the blame elsewhere, someone might just be putting the blame on you!
So.......if the is somethin wrong whif the spellin of this artickle, it's not my fallt.....its' yours.
Blame Someone Else Day could just be your day. But, watch out..... any blame you place today, can come back to bite you tomorrow. After all...what comes around goes around.
Origin of Blame Someone Else Day:
We discovered no substantial information about the origin of this day. In the spirit of the day, we will tell you that it wasn't us. We'll put the blame on someone else for starting this day.
We put the blame on Anne Moeller of Clio, Michigan for creating this day. On the first Friday the 13th of 1982, Anne's alarm clock did not go off, and she over slept. As a result, she was late for appointments all day long. According to the story, she spent the day spreading the blame, and making excuses for being late.
