Well Known Laws

My sister-in-law recently sent me this: I thought you might enjoy! I certainly relate to many of them!

take a smile

1. Law of Mechanical Repair – After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you’ll have to pee.

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; someone always answers.

5. 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. (I have to add that this principle goes for choosing lines in the grocery store too!)

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

7. Law of the Result – When you try to prove to someone that a machine won’t work, IT WILL!!!

8. Law of Biomechanics – The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the difficulty of the reach.

9. Law of the Theatre & Hockey Arena – At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle, always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the washroom and they’re also the ones who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over.

10. 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.

11.  Murphy’s Law of Lockers – If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.

12. 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.

13 Law of Physical Appearance – If the clothes fit, they’re ugly.

14  Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy – As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it OR the store will stop selling it!

15. 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. 


  1. My favourites are #9 and #15. I went to a baseball game one time and missed a whole inning because people were passing by for food and drink. I have also gone to the doctor with various symptoms only to find when it is my turn to see the doctor….the symptoms have miraculously disappeared. xo ‘Mrs. B.’
