Murphy is an asshole. Whoever he is, he often makes me look stupid and I hate him. I spent the morning trying to get my laptop to print from a network printer. I tried everything I could think of and it wouldn’t work. I decided to call Help Desk (which I avoid like the plague) and the tech asked me to try one more time before we troubleshoot. I rolled my eyes, but pressed print…and it worked. It fucking worked! I end up looking crazy, wonderful.
Also, I was in Walmart this weekend desperately searching for the pet section (it was not my usual Walmart). I ran around that entire huge store and I could not find it for the life of me. In exasperation, I finally stopped and asked an associate where the eff they are hiding the dog bones. He smiles slowly at me like I’m some kind of idiot and points directly beside us. Oh, well I can see how I missed it then. I’m standing in it.
GAH! Has Murphy gotten you lately?

@MrsPanda99: We were in Walmart yesterday, and I made a comment to FI about how quiet it seemed in there (the Walmart by our house is notoriously busy). We walk around the corner to check out, and the lineups are 2974386 people long! I swear, every resident of my city was lined up to check out at that very moment. Of course the rest of the store seemed quiet…. Ugh.

Last Friday morning for me…ended with my 16 oz coffee spilling all over my kitchen. I honestly don’t know how it did it or how it made such a huge mess but it was the finally cherry on the Murphy’s Law cake of that morning..
If only it would work like this!! LOL

Oh, I do this all the time with my DH. Usually it’s me berating the technology in our house for not working. I had a day off last week and our broadband stopped working. I call DH and he’s like “press the reset button like I told you…”
TEN times I tried to reset the freaking broadband. DH comes home 8 hours later, presses the button (after I’ve snapped at him about his ‘stupid’ suggestion that clearly didn’t work) and ping. Internet. He had the good grace to go and snigger in a different room though…

Gah… Murphy. What an ass.
We had a super busy Saturday, and I had to use my breast pump while driving from one errand to another. I took a toll road because it would have been faster than going the long way to avoid the toll. I toss exact change into the basket, and over half of it spits out in the reject bin. ARGH! So, while hooked up to my pump, I had to pull forward enough that I could open my door and reach down to get my coins. So, while pumping, I am leaning out of my car door and reaching into this little bin thingy and throwing coins into the toll basket. It took forever to get through that.
