Laws of Life:
Murphy’s First Law for Wives: If you ask your husband to pick up
five items at the store and then you add one more as
an afterthought, he will forget two of the first five.
Kauffman’s Paradox of the Corporation: The less important you
are to the corporation, the more your tardiness or
absence is noticed.
The Salary Axiom: The pay raise is just large enough to increase
your taxes and just small enough to have no effect
on your take-home pay.
Miller’s Law of Insurance: Insurance covers
everything except what happens.
First Law of Living: As soon as you start doing what you always
wanted to be doing, you’ll want to be doing something else.
Weiner’s Law of Libraries: There are no answers, only cross-references.
The Grocery Bag Law: The candy bar you planned to eat on the way
home from the market is hidden at the bottom of the grocery bag.
Lampner’s Law of Employment: When leaving work late, you will go
unnoticed. When you leave work early, you will meet
the boss in the parking lot.
