Wild Wednesdays

Today has not gone exactly as planned so my first entry to my Wild Wednesday posts isn't exactly what I had in mind but I hope you will forgive me and give me another chance next week.  These laws came to me from another sister of mine and I thought you might get a chuckle out of them:

1. Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to go to the bathroom.

2. Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to 

the least accessible place in the universe.

3. Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly 

proportional to the stupidity of your act.

4. Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a 

busy signal - and someone always answers.

6. Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you 

were in will always move faster than the one you are in now (works every 

time). Especially at the checkout lines.

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

telephone rings.

8. 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. Or where you should not be.

9. Law of the Result - When you try to prove to someone that a machine 

won't work, IT WILL!!!

10. Law of Biomechanics - The severity of the itch is inversely 

proportional to the reach.

11. The Coffee Law - 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. 

Or your husband....oh, he's the boss.

12. Murphy's Law of Lockers - If there are only 2 people in a locker room, 

they will have adjacent lockers.

13. Law of Physical Surfaces - The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich 

landing face down on a floor, are directly correlated to the newness and 

cost of the carpet or rug.

14. Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible IF you don't know what 

you are talking about.

15. Brown's Law of Physical Appearance - If the clothes fit, they're ugly.

16. Oliver's Law of Public Speaking -- A CLOSED MOUTH GATHERS NO FEET!!!

17. Wilson's Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy - As soon as you find a 

product that you really like, they will stop making it.

18. 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.. But don't make an 

appointment, and you'll stay sick.


  1. These are FUNNY... and all too true. I have experienced most of them personally. I would add to #8 that the probability of seeing someone you haven't seen for years increases dramatically if you look in the mirror before going out, realize that you do NOT look fit to be out in public, assure yourself, "No one I know will see me, anyway," and go out anyway.
