if anything can go wrong...

Pernah tak rasa sometimes macam semua benda berpakat to make your life hell…hari yang semua benda tak berjalan seperti yang kita rancang.

Semalam, aku ada kelas Technical Writing, dengan section C16. kelas di Blok V…dan blok V ni agak tidak condusive untuk PnP…maka everytime aku ada kelas kat situ, ie: Monday and Thursday, aku kena buat extra preparation.

aku ke kelas hari Isnin, 9am. Biasa la, ada students yang dah sampai, ada yang berjalan macam bersiar2 kat beach, bila nampak kereta aku baru nak berlari …konon2 nak sampai sebelum aku sampai…hehehe…aku saja je malas nak lumba 100meter dengan dia orang, bagi chance…Monday morning kan…so…aku keluar dari kereta dan berjalan dengan santainya ke bilik kuliah 38…aku sampai sama dengan mereka yang berlari tu…mereka dengan termengah2 dan tersengih2 ucap…morning madam…aku jawab…morning gentlemen…

aku planned nak tunjukkan beberapa sample multimedia presentation sebagai contoh untuk mereka, sebab mereka pun kena buat something similar untuk assessment mereka. Aku tahu, bilik kuliah tu tak de speaker, so awal2 aku dah pinjam speaker dari bahagian technical pusat bahasa…

aku terus on kan computer, sambungkan speaker, etc…everything was working just fine except for the computer screen…terpaksa la some of the boys tengok2 what was wrong…

Typical…kata aku dalam hati…

murphy’s law…tambah minda aku

what law…madam?...tanya salah seorang students …

Boink!!! You heard that?..kata aku

Yup…jawab mereka sambil tersenyum….

thinking aloud ya madam…kata mereka lagi…pagi2 buta dah nak kenakan aku…

yea…kata aku…I do think sometimes you know…

hahaha…ketawa mereka…at least they’re awake

ok…Murphy’s law…kata aku…

aku yakin mereka tak pernah dengar pasal hukum Murphy ni…so dengan confidentnya aku bertanya...You do know what Murphy’s Law is, don’t you?

Nope…jawab mereka…

No kidding!!! Kata aku…buat2 terkejut…

Maka aku pun explain kepada mereka tentang Murphy’s Law…

’if anything can go wrong, it will…’

you know…like…the day you forgot to bring your notes would be the day your lecturer wants to check the notes…or the day I lambat pergi kelas , masa tu la I will bump into my boss kat hallway…huhuu…yea…I think they got my meaning…

By that time, the boys pun dah berjaya fixed the screen…I continued the lesson, nanti tak tercapai pulak objectivenya…no doubt, the students akan guna alasan Murphy’s Law ni untuk every screw-ups they will ever do in the future…makhluk perosak rupanya aku ni…

aku cuma nak share some info tentang Murphy’s Law ni…


Origin…
It was named after Capt. Edward A. Murphy, an engineer working on Air Force Project MX981, (a project) designed to see how much sudden deceleration a person can stand in a crash.


One day, after finding that a transducer was wired wrong, he cursed the technician responsible and said,
"If there is any way to do it wrong, he'll find it."
The contractor's project manager kept a list of "laws" and added this one, which he called Murphy's Law.

Actually…if anything can go wrong, it will…bukanlah sesuatu yang baru…ia hukum alam yang dah lama ada, Cuma sebelum ni tak de nama je…dan selalunya ia akan berlaku pada waktu yang kita paling tak perlukannya...kan????

More murphy’s laws for you…

If anything can go wrong, it will
At the most inopportune time
Extension: it will be all your fault, and everyone will know it.

If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong
Extreme version:If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the FIRST to go wrong

If anything just cannot go wrong, it will anyway

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something

Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.

You will always find something in the last place you look.

If your looking for more than one thing, you'll find the most important one last.

It is never in the last place you look.
It is in the first place you look, but never discovered on the first attempt.

When a broken appliance is demonstrated for the repairman, it will work perfectly.

Whether things can go wrong or not, it depends on your frame of reference.
Regardless of your frame of reference, things will go wrong anyway.

When you see light at the end of the tunnel, the tunnel will cave in.
another version The light at the end of the tunnel is a train

Traffic is inversely proportional to how late you are, or are going to be.

Two heads are better than one, even if one is a sheep head.

Behind every little problem there's a larger problem, waiting for the little problem to get out of the way.

Nature always sides with the hidden flaw
The hidden flaw never stays hidden for long.

Murphy's Law of Thermodynamics
Things get worse under pressure.

The Murphy Philosophy
Smile . . . tomorrow will be worse.

Murphy's golden rule:
whoever has the gold makes the rules.

Don't worry about Murphy's Law, you know it's gonna happen anyway, so just get on with it and get it over with!

The humor of Murphy's Law leaves you laughing at the end of the day.
If you make it through a Murphy Day...you win!
