I am not what you would call a superstitious person. (Knock on wood.) I am a realist in a modified definition of that word and I usually take things as they come.
My past week, however, was an open commentary on “Murphy’s Law.” Offhand I am not quite sure who came up with this concept, but they must have had a week somewhat like my week this past week.
If I had it within me, I would establish “Snyder’s Law” which simply stated means, what can go right will go right. Then all would be right with the world. Well, except for those who are left-handed.
It all started Monday morning when I had an early morning meeting. I meant to set my alarm clock for 6 a.m. but for some reason I set it for 6 p.m. and overslept. Have you ever noticed when you are 15 minutes late in the morning the day ends up being 90 minutes late? Do not ask me how that happens. Ask Murphy.
In the mail, I got a notice from the bank that I was overdrawn and they were charging me an insufficient fund fee. Well, I was furious. After all, I know how to add and subtract and I know how to take care of my bank account. I was about ready to call them and give them a piece of my mind when I noticed, how it happened I will never know, I forgot to include two checks I had written last week. I hate when that happens. My whole checkbook is now screwed up. I think it might be easier for me just to close my account and start all over again.
It was Tuesday but I had to go across town and endure all that traffic. It is not my favorite place to drive, I will tell you right now. Just as I turned onto a street, my engine sputtered a little bit. Then, much to my chagrin, the engine stopped completely. I hate when that happens.
