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.
It doesn’t matter what the job or the detail is, but let’s just say something needs to be cut or adjusted to fit something else. You take the measurements and measure 172cm. You take this and measure out on whatever it is you’re cutting.
After the cut you present the it and – shit! It’s cut too small! G=How can this be. Measuring it again, you cut 127cm!
You scream. Murphy’s Law has struck. Again.
In this case the agent of Murphy is expert and swapping thing round in your head and making it sound right. This causes all kinds of chaos.
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.
