Murphy's Law at work

Time and again it seems to work!

Something happened last week and got me thinking about Murphy's Law and what it is all about and how its ALWAYS just seems to work and crop up in our lives at the absolutely unwarranted times -time and again!

And it happens to EVERYONE--many times over and over again!

Which led me to ask-what is this law really and how the hell does it work and why?

The law states "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong" in a given situation-question still remains in my mind--WHY???

How many times do we experience this?
Just when you HAVE to reach someplace on time--the bus (that you normally see atleast every 5 min) doesnt turn up for 20 min.

Just when you dont want your maid to take leave coz ur expecting guests--she does!(without informing u)

Just when u absolutely shouldnt forget your passport at home to catch a flight-you do!

I CAnt even remember the number of times I have said to myself--Just when I DONT want this to happen--it WILL!

Well, whats still a mystery to me how it works all the time unfailingly and even more so-why??-Why do things have to go wrong-sooo wrong when you soo dont want them to?

Well it's almost like saying that "Dont will anything too hard"-coz if you do--you are actually willing for it to "Not happen" rather than happen!--SCARY!!!

The question now is-To will or not to will!?

I have a way of dealing with this. When something important is about to happen I automatically expect the worst...9 times out of ten it turns out waaay better than I had expected :)
