I hate Murphy

We are all aware of a wonderful law created by a guy named Murphy. Apparently, I must have really pissed Mr. Murphy off because his law follows me around like lint.

“Anything that can possibly go wrong, does”

Like today for instance, I really wanted to go to the gym this morning to do some reading on the stationery bike but also to get rid of some stress that had accumulated since yesterday. I was all decked out in my gym clothes. I got off the train and approached the gym door to find a note saying “Our apologies but due to a plumbing problem, the gym will not be open”. The little excitement I had to get to the gym was immediate quashed thanks to this polite note. So I had to walk around lower manhattan in my gym clothes to get to my office. I swiped into my office building and went straight to the bathroom to change into my work clothes.

So, I got to start the day in a really crappy mood and on top of that, got a number of annoying emails that just made my aggravation a million times worse.

There you have it. Just another horrible example of my man Murphy getting on my nerves.

He is, indeed, a tremendous pest.
