Murphy Paid Me A Visit Today - You Too?

Recommended Posts

You know ol' Murphy.  That pain in the back side guy that always manages to visit when you least want him around. 


I was starting an embroidery project for someone when he decided to pay a visit.  Wouldn't you know, I didn't have quite the right color of thread, and no store near to buy it.  I had to do a little switching around so the combinations wouldn't look too garish.  He was still sitting near the machine when my bobbin ran out.  I didn't have a BLACK one wound so I had to stop the project to wind a black one.  And of course it ran out 8 stitches before the completion of the project. 


Anyone else have Murphy pay them a visit today?

As a matter of fact, yes....and he has been following me around too. I am trying to pack for my trip south and at every turn I mess something up, knock something over or misplace what I am packing. I spent 10 minutes looking for the magic marker that was in my back pocket...Sheesh!


It’ll get better, Miss Kris. :)

Sonar depth detection went out on the thickener well.

Fuse burnt in two on a 440 circuit, knocked out the sludge collector drive.

McDonalds only gave me one McMuffin instead of the buy one, get one free.

Wife's new car's first payment was due yesterday and we only just found the letter on it today.

Going to bed now, this is my week of midnights, which is Murphy enough in and of its own self.

I still like the Yul Lose notion of charging that scoundrel (Murphy, not Yul!), rent!

Murphy's Law has many tenants.

11, 12 & 13 run rampant in my shop.


Murphy's First Law:  Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

Murphy's Second Law:  Nothing is as easy as it looks.

Murphy's Third Law:  Everything takes longer than you think it will.

Murphy's Fourth Law:  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.

Corollary: If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then.

Murphy's Fifth Law:  If anything simply cannot go wrong, it will anyway.

Murphy's Sixth Law:  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.

Murphy's Seventh Law:  Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.

Murphy's Eighth Law:  If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Murphy's Ninth Law:  Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.

Murphy's Tenth Law:  Mother nature is a bitch.

Murphy's Eleventh Law:  It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

Murphy's Twelfth Law:  Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.

Murphy's Thirteenth Law:  Every solution breeds new problems.

Murphy's Fourteenth Law:  If anything can't go wrong on its own, someone will make it go wrong.
