Interesting family legend: my great grandfather was supposed to sail to America on the Titanic, he was originally from Poland but living and working
as a tailor in England. His boss at the time told him he couldn't spare him and begged him to stay working for him for a few more months, just until
he got things in order and could find a good replacement for him. They were friends, so my great grandfather agreed so as not to leave the guy in the
lurch and decided to take a later ship.
Good thing, too, because I'm sure he would have been one of those poor saps in steerage who were all doomed to have no place on any lifeboat. Had he
died he would have never met my great grandmother and I would have never been born.
