Murphy’s Law

Since my week has been in utter turmoil I thought I would share some of the laws that seemed to be at work lately.


  1. Nothing is as easy as it looks.
  2. Everything takes longer than you think.
  3. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
  4. If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.
  5. Corollary: If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then.
  6. If anything simply cannot go wrong, it will anyway.
  7. If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which a procedure can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop.
  8. Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.
  9. If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
  10. Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.
  11. It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
  12. Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.
  13. Every solution breeds new problems.

I am so glad this week is over, the car is fixed and I have been able to resume driving, but it sure seemed as if Murphy was following me this week.

Hope YOU have a blessed week – Patti.
