Or when you’re all nicely dressed up and in high heels a car drives by and splashes the puddle of rainwater on your new outfit?
Or when you think you have finally emptied your to-do list, another million things appear for you to add on it.
There is an adage called Murphy’s Law you probably know it: Anything that can go wrong — will go wrong.
It usually does. Sometimes due to chance, sometimes due to circumstances, most times due to stupidity and lack of comprehending the obvious.
The need to plan ahead and have time to get to your meeting, the logic of not standing by the puddle in the first place, the courage to say ‘no’ and pace yourself.
Then again there are somethings that are simply out of your hand. When drowning in tasks you are forced to do and ask for help, you are not responsible if that boomerangs back as a negative answer. For if it is physically impossible for you to work during non-working hours then that is all there is to it. The cost of medical remedy far outweighs any financial remuneration you may receive from daily encounters with persons and situations that only weigh the benefits and not both sides.
If people had the good judgement to understand the rationale behind each situation, we would have better communication between us, we would live more harmoniously with each other and misunderstandings would not occur. But they don’t, and we don’t and they do.
It is a pity really. Because we then truly start to believe that Murphy’s Law is an unbreakable rule.
There is just one thing that it makes you truly wonder though: what really did happen to Murphy?
