Murphy's Laws...
« on: December 13, 2012, 08:26 AM »
Law of Mechanical Repair
After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch or you'll have to pee. 
Law of the Workshop
Any tool, when dropped, will roll or slide to the least accessible location.
Law of Probability
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act. 
Law of the Telephone
If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal.   
Law of the Alibi   
If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire,  the very next morning you will have a flat tire.   
Variation Law   
If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will start to move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).   
Law of the Bath
When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.
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.   
Law of the Result
When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.
Law of Biomechanics
The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to your ability to reach and scratch it. 
Law of the Theater
At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle will arrive last.
Law of Coffee
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. 
Law of Rugs/Carpets
The chances of an open-faced jam sandwich landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet/rug.
Law of Logical Argument
Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
Brown's Law
 If the shoe fits, it's ugly.
Oliver's Law     
A closed mouth gathers no feet.     
Wilson's Law         
As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.  (this one is true every time!)       
Doctors' Law     
If you don't feel well, make an appointment to see a doctor, and by the time you get there you'll feel better.  Don't make an appointment and you'll remain sick
ESKOM'S Law     
The moment the power goes off - you NEED a cup of tea, but the moment the power returns... the need for tea is gone!
You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me!
