Reading time
Read the following paragraph, then make couples and share your opinion about these interesting superstition.
The designation of a "13th floor" in some tall buildings (particularly hotels) has been purposely omitted due to old superstitions about the number 13. Many people refuse to sleep on a floor with the number 13 (or even in room numbered 13).

To avoid this problem, the 13th level of some buildings is simply re-named. It may be called 12-A, or the "lounge level" or "terrace level". More often, it's skipped over and called the 14th floor, with all actual levels from 13 and higher misnumbered by one.

This means that a building with 20 actual levels, but with its 13th floor omitted, will seem to have 21 floors, since the elevators will go to 21.
