I was thinking about luck one day so I sent out a tweet. "Good luck" is such a common thing to say that we never think twice about it. For me, though, I have always sensed a negative connotation behind it. And after having a conversation on Twitter about the topic, I searched to see what others had to say. Seems a lot of people agreed.
Hate when people say "good luck" to me: If you train hard; you'll know your outcome. If you don't prepare & expect a win - then good luck.

I hate when people say good luck in your new chapter. I'm not a book #ImAlive

As much as I appreciate it, I hate when people say good luck before surgery...I hope I don't need luck 😳
