My Chinese colleagues take lucky and unlucky numbers far more seriously than Americans do
That's my experience too.
Chinese American business people nearly wet themselves back when "888" was introduced as a toll-free telephone area code.
If you don't know Mandarin but listen to Mandarin TV a lot (as I do, due to my Chinese roommate), the most common phrase you hear is "yi ba ba ba," which appears at the end of most commercials and means "1-888".
