I believe today was the second time I have been pooped on. Today was minor compared to the first time. This morning I thought it was a big raindrop, but nope. Bird poop on my shoulder. When I was four or five with long hair in low pigtails with an unintentionally crooked middle part (and if memory serves a purple cotton turtleneck) a bird crapped on my head.

Rob, thanks for sharing.

Several times. Most recently, a couple years ago while waiting for a bus after a job interview, wearing brand new spiffy job interview outfit. I took it as a good omen, but I didn't get the job.

Too often, unfortunately. Once on a date in high school. That turned out well. And then a couple times in DC within the same week. People tell me it's good luck but I don't believe it.

honestly, i don't think so...i'm finding it hard to really remember though, but that probably means it hasn't happened. guess i'm just not a good target...

No. No bird would ever dare do that to someone as coifed as me. Mayor Bloomberg on the otherhand, it looks like some big bird (maybe Big Bird) pooped a lot on his disheveled face.

YES! Twice in one week! Aside from that, my earliest understanding of a bird pooping on people was when I was 6 and my mother and I were sitting on a dock when a bird flew overhead. We both looked up but she said,"You should never look up when a bird flies over you b/c it will poop on you." We both looked back down and she had poop on her hand.

No but I was on a class trip where a kid got attacked by a bird.

yes. i was sketching a building (was an architecture major freshman year) and i felt something land on my head. bird poo - ew! i ran into the bathroom and tried my best to wash it out in the sink. nothing about that experience made me feel lucky.

Yes, but in Italy they say it's good luck if a bird poops on you. Not sure if I believe them...

Ew.
