This makes no sense to me, the numbers go 11, 12, 13, 14, and so on. With that said,wouldn't that make row 14 really  row 13? Or a floor 14 in a sky scraper is really floor 13, duh.  I have never had a thing for Friday the 13th, it seems to me it's just another day, I think if something bad is going to happen to you it could happen on the 20th or the 4th just as well as on the 13th.
