Murphy's Law

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

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

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

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

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.

Guy's Variation Rider - If you change traffic lanes, the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now.

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

Decree 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. This is also the case if you are female and you have gone out with no makeup and wearing your worst clothes.

Murphy's Office Law - 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 the reach.


  1. Imagine the Murphy's Law in play 24/7 at Wally World! Haven't those people seen that web site?

    It's Saturday. Finally. I'm betting you have something fun and floaty planned. Big hugs xoxo

  2. Great list. Love the Law of Probability :) As for the law of random numbers, this one would actually be true. If you got a busy signal, you would never know it was a wrong number :)

  3. I have the phone ringing in while in the tub syndrome all the time. Lucky for answering machines. Oh and that itch. No matter how hard you try you just can't reach it. So it gets worse and worse.LOL

  4. They are so true funny LOL

    Have a great weekend :-0

  5. Those are all so darn true. Love the itch one. But then they are all good. Thanks for that smile this morning. Hope the sailing is going well. Again, is the boat behaving?? Have a super week end.

  6. love them all! love what barb said, do something fun and floaty!!!

    smiles, bee

  7. I always worry about Law #5 so I try to never ever put it into effect!

    Have a great weekend! Fun and floaty sounds good!

  8. All true! As for Murphy's office law, it also works for the doctor. Ever notice that your sick symptoms disappear when you step into the doctor's office.


  9. The best of Murphy's Laws:
    Law of gravity and law of probability
    Have a great weekend!

  10. Ha ha ha ha! All so very trues!

    No. 6, also applies when changing lanes in a shopping queue!

  11. These are sooo true. And funny.

    No floaty here. Just sitting beside a nice creek and loving it. Big hugs, honey...

  12. Have fun today... Loved those... I *SO* identify with a few of those... and do I ever learn?


  13. Murphy's Law is growing! These all look like winners too.
    Still, the only one I will remember is "IF ANYTHING CAN GO WRONG IT WILL."

  14. The Bath Law also hooks up with the toilet. We are open on saturday mornings but as we don't get a lot of customers compared to week days we have a Saturday roster where only one person is in. This means we only work one Saturday morning a month. When you're there on your own & need to go to the toilet you can about 98% guarantee that the phone will ring or a customer will come it, especially if you need to sit for a while.

  15. Murphy was a pretty smart fellow!

  16. Those are so right. And if you fail to take your umbrella it rains.

  17. Great list! Don't forget the law about Car Trouble. Whenever you try to explain to your mechanic what's wrong with your car, it never does it in front of him. :)
