Just My Luck

  • It hardly rains when I carry my BIG umbrella (like I am going to save the whole town from getting wet) with me and when I don’t, that is when it pours.
  • When I had long hair, it kept falling and falling until it started to look like a rat’s tail. Now that I have cut it too short, it grows enough to make it look like a birds nest.
  • I decide to beat the traffic and start early from home, sacrificing my early morning sleep and guess what, the whole town decides to beat the traffic the very same day.
  • When I do ย work from home because it is a festival day (not an official holiday though) and to watch all those special programmes on TV, that is when all the channelsย decide to play all the crappy movies and I end up actually working the whole day.
  • When I have a demo (aka demonstration of my product’s features) scheduled (for which I spend around half a day to set it up) to the higher management, that is when the meeting is either cancelled or is hijacked by another team.

Sounds like perfect examples of Murphy’s law isn’t. I guess I should be happy about my once-in-a-while bad luck. At least I don’t have Stark Luck.

    1. That’s new! Thank you for mentioning that term ๐Ÿ™‚

      It would have been except that they expected me to have the setup ready the next day, when I wasn’t prepared, in less than an hour. That isn’t a good thing. I was feeling like Hugh Jackman in Swordfish for some time.

  1. Somehow Murphy isn’t my friend.
    Somehow Murphy strikes on the worst days! On 23rd December a few years ago I lost my key to my house! That’s the day before Christmas in Norway. I had to drive 45min to find a shop that sold locks, since all the local ones were closed! Changing the locks at 10 in the evening was not fun at all.
