You’re sitting in eight lanes of bumper-to-bumper traffic. You’re more than ready to get home and the fricking traffic doesn’t move. You notice, to your great dismay, that all of the other lanes seem to be moving. You change lanes. But once you do, the cars in your new lane come to a dead halt. At a standstill, you notice every lane on the highway (including the one you just left) is moving — except yours.
Welcome to the aggravating world of Murphy’s Law. This idiom says that whatever can go wrong will go wrong. And it may just be right. This isn’t because of some mysterious power the law possesses. In reality, it’s us who give Murphy’s Law relevance. When life goes well, little is made of it. After all, we expect that things should work out in our favor. But when things go badly, we look for reasons.
