The way things are IV

The way things are IV

Murphy's Law "If something can go wrong, it will"

Months ago I posted ten corollaries to Murphy’s Law.  As I expected, many of my readers had some suggestions that had not crossed my mind.  I posted a second list .  Then came TWTA III

This is my fourth “The way things are” post.  That is why the IV.  Several of these are suggestions from readers following TWTA III.

Why is it that the passenger-side windshield wiper and the passenger-side spray thingee for the windshield washer fluid always perform superbly and without flaw; whereas the driver-side wiper always leaves horrible streaks and the spray thingee always manages to be plugged with a few minute ice crystals; even after the vehicle owner-operator has paid particular attention to cleaning that little sum-bitch thoroughly?  Old AF Sarge (Longest sentence ever Sarge)

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…unless it just fucks you up really bad!

If you really have to be somewhere on time, and you are cutting it close, you will catch every traffic light red.

That’s all I’ve got for now…hey, it’s a post!


  1. my husband has his version of that saying, too: whatever doesn't kill you just pisses you off! :)

    i enjoyed this post, cranky!


    When the truth opposes doctrinal positions, men reject the truth. If Scripture is contrary to long held denominational teaching most men either reject Scripture outright or explain it away. God's truth, found in the Bible, is the first casualty of denominational rules for faith and practice.

    God's Truth: 1 Corinthians 13:8-13 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; it there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.........13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love. (NASB)

    Opposite of God's Truth: Gifts of prophecy have not been done away with. Tongues have not ceased. Knowledge that is God's revelation to men has not been done away with. Faith, hope, love, tongues, prophecy, and special knowledge from God, these six abide with us today.

    God's Truth: Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.(NASB)

    Opposite of God's Truth: He who has believed is saved immediately. Water baptism has nothing to do with being saved. Besides that, Mark 16:16 should not be included the Bible away; because it is not included in some manuscripts. You really cannot trust God to give mankind an accurate translation of the Bible.

    God's Truth: Acts 10:25-26 When Peter entered, Cornelius met him, and fell at his feet and worshiped him. 26 But Peter raised him up, saying, "Stand up; I too am just a man."(NASB)

    Opposite of God's Truth: The apostle Peter should have permitted Cornelius to worship him; because the apostle Peter was the first Catholic pope. Cornelius should have kissed Peter's ring and feet. Cornelius was correct, he should have treated Peter with awe, reverence. adoration, and veneration. Peter was the first Holy Father on earth and deserved to be worshipped.

    God's Truth: Revelation 3:1-6 "To the angel of the church in Sardis write:..........5 He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life....(NASB)

    Opposite of God's Truth: Jesus was not talking to Christians. Christians are once saved always saved, there is no possibility of having their names erased from the book of life.

    The first casualty of God's truth is man's opinion.


    1. I can't even follow your comment!

    2. This guy is spamming all over the place. All over the place. :(

    3. This guy irritates me. He used to always invite me to follow his blog. I finally emailed him and told him to never visit my blog again and I had no interest in following his blog. You win converts not through his way of doing so.


    4. Mark it as spam and delete. Go to the spam folder in Posts>Comments>Spam, where you will find it. Delete it again. This notifies Google and hey, presto, the guy will be blocked from posting on your blog without your permission.

    5. Well he at least doesn't hate American woman. I got that HAW guy till I blocked him.

  3. How about......the printer always runs out of ink in the middle of printing your tax documents. We've also had the electricity go out while doing taxes on the computer.

  4. Murphy's Law sucks. Big time. I love all these and have had most of them happen to me and some more than once.

    Have a fabulous day Joe. ☺

  5. That is so true about the shortest line in the grocery store and running late and catching every red light. I just kind of laugh about it now when both happen to me.


  6. Yup, at times I think the world is just one big conspiracy against me. ;)

    "All the important stuff (the air conditioning, car battery, refrigerator, toilet, etc) only breaks at 5 o'clock on a Friday afternoon."

  7. To err is human, but to really foul things up requires technology.

    Love Murphey's Laws and corollaries.

  8. The day you have to go back to school and set up your summer-dismantled electronic devices, then do weekly grocery shopping, then take The Pony to an appointment, necessitating several trips in and out your gravel the day the county road department will choose to install a 30-foot pipe where that gravel road meets the county road.

  9. I like: A bird in the hand---is messy!

  10. Cranky, I enjoy these so much you really ought to make them a regular feature!

  11. It is so true about red lights. Same thing with flash lights. It is like some one is not on your side.

  12. Hey, that's me up there! Thank you.

    When you're waiting at a bus stop to go anywhere, the bus on the other side of the road, going in the opposite direction, ALWAYS arrives before the one you are waiting for.

  13. When you are flying to Milwaukee, your baggage ends up in Muskegon.

    ...or worse

  14. Now ya went and did it. I missed the first three posts, so I had to go back and read them, too. (Good stuff!)

    Oh, and by the way, Murphy was an optimist.
