When Jamie forgot his money/wallet after putting it away in his locker after lunch.

When he forgot his wallet it was apart of the "streak" because when he left his wallet at school and didn't get to pay for his potato wedgies and soda and he ran out of the burger joint while he had the chance.

Evidence #2

When Jamie hit his ankle into the dumbbell while he was on the way to pick up the phone. It was one of his teachers Mr.Bradley.

This part of the "Streak" because when the teacher called him it was about his bad grade that he got on a test he took in english class

Evidence #3

When Jamie spilled a can of milk on one of the biggest guy at school.

This is part of the "Streak" because when Jamie spilled the milk on that really big dude he got mad and starting turning his wide open hands into a fist. Jamie was so scared that he spent all day hiding away from him.

Analysis #4

This is when the streak ended because when jaimes sister handed him an egg he lost it because of all of the bad luck that was going on.
