Good Luck Cards, the Ultimate Way to Show Someone You Give a Shit with a Card
Whether it’s a good luck charm, the good luck fairy, or the luck of the Irish, we all need a bit of good luck from time to time (although, sometimes wishing someone good luck is a bit annoying and pointless because the task at hand actually requires lots of talent and hard work rather than ‘luck’, but you get our point). No matter whether it’s a big trip, a new job, or a new neighbourhood, sending someone a good luck card is a great way to spur your friend on and let them know that you don’t think that they are a total dickhead.
Did you know that historically, the origin of the word ‘luck’ derives from the Middle Dutch word luc which is short for gheluc which means happiness? Just look at the Dutch with their abundance of brothels, weed and windmills, who wouldn’t want a bit of Dutch ‘luck’?
Nowadays, wishing someone good luck is all about pepping them up, boosting their ego and helping them to make a really big push to just go for it and achieve whatever pathetic dream that they want to in the next chapter of their lives, and a cardshit.com card is a great way to do just that.
From the painfully honest, “Good luck blagging someone into hiring you” to the cheerfully supportive, “Good luck with the exams you clever cunt”, you don’t have to worry about being too soppy or sentimental with our selection of brutally honest good luck cards.
Unlike anniversaries and Valentine’s Day, when it comes to good luck cards, the more crude you can be, the better, and the funnier and more amusing you can be, the less apprehensive your pals will feel about a new job, a big move or even an upcoming birth. For example, who wouldn’t look at “Good luck with the birth – hope you don’t shit yourself” and not be instantly soothed and lulled into a calming false sense of security?
Take a new job for instance, just think about your mate settling down at their brand new desk in their brand new job, with nothing but one of those giant Sports Direct mugs and a card which reads “Good luck with the new job – hope you get through probation” on their desk. That’s a funny image no matter what way you think about it, and it’s bound to be a talking point to help them make some new friends (or enemies) in the office.
Or what if your pal has just moved house and their new neighbour rings the doorbell to offer them a cup of sugar (or you know, a shot of Sambuca, depending on how dead-on they are) only to spot a card on the mantelpiece which says “Good luck with the move – hope your neighbours aren’t cunts”? There’s only one way to find out, and their reaction to a card like that will definitely let them know one way or the other. You never know, before long your good luck card will be a talking point throughout the whole street.
So whether you want to wish them a simple, “Good luck – don’t fuck it up”, or something a bit more specific, good luck cards are a thoughtful and comical way to spread good cheer amongst your friends and family no matter what type of luck they may be in need of, and even though you can’t realistically alter the path of someone’s sad little life, wishing him or her good luck is a effective way to make it look like you care.
