Murphy’s Laws

We all have some terribly bad days sometimes, and admit it: the best thing we can do is to learn how to laugh at ourselves. Fortunately, once there was a man named Edward Murphy, who made several laws of everyday-life. It’s weird, but these funny laws can really work, especially on those mentioned days… Check your knowledge! How many of these laws have you known?

If something just cannot go wrong, it will anyway.
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.

If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which something can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop.
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
Smile . . . tomorrow will be worse.

The other line always moves faster.

Everything goes wrong all at once.
In nature, nothing is ever right. Therefore, if everything is going right . . . something is wrong.
When working toward the solution of a problem, it always helps if you know the answer.
Corollary: Provided, of course, that you know there is a problem.
Everything takes longer than you think.
Everything takes longer than it takes.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.

The chance of the buttered side of the bread falling face down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet.

A knowledge of Murphy's Law is no help in any situation.

Don't worry about Murphy's Law, you know it's gonna happen anyway, so just get on with it and get it over with!
