Okay, I get the missing “13” (bad luck in Western cultures) and no numbers with “4” in them (bad luck in Chinese and Japanese cultures), and the –1 is clever, but where’s the zero? C’mon Asian people, we’re supposed to be good at math!

Sometimes we call 13rd floor as 12b, 4th floor as 3b and so on. This is stupid but the business people believe it.
