Not a jinx at all, Mal.
Things like this happen all the time. You are just lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time from time to time.
Years ago while driving a W up Swanson St, near Franklin St there was an enormous BANG BANG BANG BANG.
On the way back I stopped and prised this gear case bolt from the track groove. How many trams had run over it to bash the head down this much?
Another day walking in the city I saw an entire gear case cover fall off a W. You would know all about that if you tried to run over it!
