Is that idiot Murphy still alive?

Asked by SQUEEKY2 (20598points) 3 weeks ago

You know who I am talking about, the idiot that made the law that the phone will only ring when you’re in the shower.
The next law, that the hot water heater can only breakdown on Sunday of a holiday weekend, and the list goes on.
I want to find this idiot and punch him out.

After being put into that robot body, I am sure he is functionally immortal.
Also, do not try to punch him. He has a nasty retractable spike in his fist.

He moved to the food business, now is known for his salads and cole slaw. He even trademarked the name:

“Murphy’s Slaw”.

I heard poor Murph died when he fell through a window, while trying to stop his sainted mum from defenestrating his weed. :(

Murphy rules that whatever line I get on at the supermarket or store like Walmart will be the slowest line. Slow cashier, or customer in front will have some kind of problem, like something won’t have a price on it or their credit card won’t work.

Ditto that @jca2 Either that, or it’s rush hour with a thousand customers, and on cashier on duty. And usually when I’m in a hurry to get somewhere else.

So it’s decided Murphy has to die?

Back in my bachelorette days, I think I may have dated Murphy, and perhaps a few of his brothers. I recall a few relationships that went completely wrong.

@jca2 @Nomore_lockout That is not Murphy in action. It is queuing theory in action.

Here is a discussion about Queuing Theory .

Isaac has a corollary to Murphy’s law: Murphy was an optimist. Notice I said was.

Interesting article about queing theory, @LuckyGuy. I like the serpentine idea a lot!

I was on a serpentine line once and a lady jumped ahead to the next open cashier. Needless to say, I went off on her.

He lives in every man, woman, and child the world over. And it doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

@Blackwater_Park That quote is never quoted in full. The entire quote should read:

Murphy was an optimist. R.I.P.
