Murphy’s law of probability or sod’s law is summarised by the saying “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” This is a new little series intended to be a numerous and light hearted look at the world of cock up. More often than anything it’s the small things in life that stress us out, I know this is the case with me. This is a kind of reverse psychology look at the fact that when things go wrong – it ain’t that bad really.
Life is full of little disasters. You never know what’s round the corner. You think thing’s a tootling along fine, then something happens. All plans go out of the window, your budget, time and energy all going with it.
For example, cars have time when they’re great and then times when they’re a pain in the rear! They won’t stay fixed and want more money than a wife wanting to renovate her house! You’re driving along happily, everything working.
A light turns on, warning you of something.
You ignore it, hoping it will go away.
A minute later… everything dies and the car stops. Leaving you in a bad place and with far less cash than you had.
You scream. Murphy’s Law has struck. Again.
What’s you view on Murphy’s Law? How has it struck you in the past… I hope you my fellow bloggies enjoy this little featurette.
