    Universal Laws

    Oh so true!

    Law of Mechanical Repair- After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch or you'll have to pee.

    Law of the Workshop - 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 the Telephone - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal.

    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.

    Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will start to move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).

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

    Law 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.

    Law of the Result - 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.

    Law of the Theater - At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle arrive last.

    Law of Coffee - As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

    Murphy's Law of Lockers - If there are only two people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.

    Law of Rugs/Carpets - The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet/rug.

    Law of Location - No matter where you go, there you are.

    Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.

    Brown's Law - If the shoe fits, it's ugly.

    Oliver's Law - A closed mouth gathers no feet.

    Wilson's Law - As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it. (this one is true every time!)

    Doctors' Law - If you don't feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you'll feel better. Don't make an appointment and you'll stay sick.

    Very true, your post reminds me of something my dad always used to say; "Son, there is no such thing as a "free lunch". Somebody is paying for it".

    Here is another, the Law of Irony: Whenever you put something away somewhere that you won't forget, you will forget where you put it at the very moment you need it.

    For Husbands: When you are looking for something in the pantry or the refrigerator, and you can't find it, your wife will walk right in and put her hands on it, and it will turn out to have been right under your nose.

    For children: No matter how many times you tell your children to stay out of something or not to touch it, they will tell you "I forgot" as soon as you confront them for doing it.

    For long trips: No matter how well you plan and pack, once you are on your way and far enough away from home so that it's not practical or possible to return for the item, you will remember that you forgot it.

    Murphy's Law covers most of these:


    If something can go wrong, it will happen @ the worst possible time!
    ex: running out of gas the day before you get paid, etc.

    This law here... "Law of the Workshop - Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner".

    Reads this way as well... The damnit tool - When you get mad and throw a tool across the garage while yelling damnit, that is always the next tool you will need.
