wednesday- Hump Day



Hump Day - a day that marks the middle of the work week - once you reach it your halfway to the weekend. You go up - level off - then go down - to chillaxing time on the weekend. Thought we could have some fun with Murphy's Law. Can you think of any others?

Corollaries to Murphy's Law

1. Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.

2. Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

3. Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

4. Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.

6. Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now (works every time). (Grocery stores too.)

7. Law of the Bath - When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.

8. Law of Close Encounters - The probability of meeting someone you know increases dramatically when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with. (Or you don't dress up or have your make up on!)

9. Law of the Result - When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.

10. Law of Biomechanics - The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

11. Law of the Theater & Hockey Arena - At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle, always arrive last They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet and who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.

12. The Coffee Law - As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

13. Murphy's Law of Lockers - If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.

14. Law of Physical Surfaces - The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor, are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug.

15. Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.

16. Brown's Law of Physical Appearance - If the clothes fit, they're ugly.

17. Oliver's Law of Public Speaking - A closed mouth gathers no feet.

18. Wilson's Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy - As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.

19. Doctors' Law - If you don't feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you'll feel better.. But don't make an appointment, and you'll stay sick.

20. ? ________________________

Gosh some of those are so true - are they for you too? Can you think of another?

Love these! The Law of Shelly is that as soon as I get into the shortest checkout line at the grocery store, it instantly becomes the slowest and longest.

Remington said...

20. As soon as you scoop out the kitty litter box the cat jumps in and goes again.

How's that? Of course, you'd have to have a cat to understand.

By the way, at Texans games our seats are in the middle of the row. I always feel sorry for the guys on the aisle.

My Journey With Candida said...

I have something to add to number one. Or your cell phone will ring.

Happens to me everytime when I am painting.

Lynn said...

#4 - or if they don't answer they'll call to see who called from that number? I never do that. :)

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

These are so true. I have to agree with Lynn on #4.

I have been at work when someone would call a number that had appeared in their I.D. and as I answered, they would ask " Do you know who called me?" First of all, I don't know hwo you are. So, no, I don't do that either.

Thanks for another grin.

Terra said...

Funny! Hey, my dh and I are aisle people and we are not surly; you must be referring to those other aisle people. LOL

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

#19 happens to me every time...

Eva Ason said...

These are all so very true, especially the 1st one! The nose always get's itchy when you've got your hands full [sort of]. I love Wednesdays - means that the weekend is within grasp....! Great post.
Enjoy your day!

Eva

Angela said...

#19 gets me almost every time! I can have a runny nose that I'm constantly blowing my nose all the way to the doctor. Use almost an entire box of tissues. Get in the doctor's office worried to death I'll need to blow and sit there for over an hour and not need to blow my nose at all! Get back in my truck to head to the pharmacy and as soon as I get in my truck I have to blow my nose again and again! Go figure!

Hugs,
Angela

Sandra said...

3 and 17 are the ones that get me the most...

Wanda's Wings said...

Great list and oh so true!

Jill said...

These are all great!

Maple Lane said...

Such a fun post!

Ginny said...

Most of these ARE true, Sandie!!! Especially about finding a great product, then they either change it or stop making it, one of my pet peeves! And here's a new one: When I lose something and just can't find it anywhere. As soon as I buy a new one, the lost one turns up!

Rae said...

Great list and so true.

Jane said...

I have to say almost every one of those have happened to me at different times... Blessings Jane

Ann said...

I can't think of anything to add but those are all good ones and so true

✿ⒹⒺⒺ✿@ A Lapin Life said...

So very true.

Mine is waiting for the important phone call and I step out for a moment and that is when the call comes in.

Dee

Joey said...

Amen....

One of my goals (and I really just understood this... thank you God) is not to let anyone crush my spirit this year.

Thank you, and God bless you.

Jeanie said...

Murphey's Law is often referenced around here. I can't wait to share your oh-so-true corollaries.

Jeanie said...

Oops, that should be Murphy's.

Michaele said...

That is quite a collection! I think I like the Biometrics one the best: )

Linda @ A La Carte said...

These were funny and too many happen to me all the time...lol. hugs, Linda

Nancy's Notes said...

Oh, what a great and funny post! I needed a chuckle!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great post... I loved all of them --but the one about the random numbers caught my attention. It's TRUE... When you dial a wrong number, it is never busy and someone always answers the phone... How TRUE.... ha ha
Hugs,
Betsy

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Sush said...

Oh so true and such good laughs!
Hugs~

Susan said...

Hi Sandie....

Great list. Loved it and have experienced several of them.

Here's one more:

Law of the Dentist (or Doctor): You have a severe pain. You make a phone call. You get an appointment. You drive into the parking lot of the doctor or dentist. The pain disappears completely before your feet hit the waiting room floor.

Hope you have a terrific Thursday. Susan

Grandma Bonnie said...

These are all so true. The jelly sandwich is the top one when having grandchildren over.

DaCraftyLady said...

great post!!

Love Of Quilts said...

YOU HAVE THEM ALL COVERED I CAN'T THINK OF ANY.

BlueShell said...

Funny....I can't remember any...

Hug You

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

These are great! And very true, all of them. ;) Thanks for the early smile.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

LOL!! Many truths here, Sandie!! LOL! blessings ~ tanna

Rhonda said...

SO TRUE...I promise you every time I put my hands in the soapy dish water my nose itches....every time!

forgetmenot said...

Sandie, These are so funny(and so true). You did some research to find all of them--thanks for sharing. You are right, I finally purchased the upgrade on Picnik the other day because it had some textures in the package. The free Picnik was pretty impressive though and I was always "amazed" at the end product. Have a great day. Mickie :)

Carol said...

Don't worry be HAPPY!

Love to you!

OH....and LOVE the Camel picture - awesome! If you ever are bored and want to be creative on my blog let me know. Your blog is sooooo inviting!

I actually had a #9 in real life. My car kept breaking down, but at the car dealership they couldn't find anything wrong. Finally, it absolutely wouldn't start AT ALL, and it had to be towed. THEN they were able to fix it. Seems it had to break first...WHAT?! It's like the *funny engine noise* you hear, but it NEVER makes the noise at the car shop.

Let's see - a new law.

#20 - Law of Time Crunch - When the frequency of misplacing keys, glasses, purse is directly proportional to how late you are, and how important that appointment is!
