  1. I go down to the shops for 2 minutes, come back, and theres a slip through the door, "you've just missed a delivery " (not actual slip contents), how typical is this!

    Does anyone else suffer from sods law as bad as me?

    One morning a couple of years back, I was making myself some breakfast and heard the postman putting something through the letter box. I just carried on doing what I'd been doing, figuring it was most likely to be something depressing like a final demand for payment for the electricity or telephone or something.

    When I went to the door, it turned out to be one of these delivery slips saying that they'd tried to deliver a package but couldn't because I was out. I ran down the street to catch the postman only to find out he'd left the item at the delivery office as it was a bit heavy and he didn't want to take the chance that I might not be in...
  3. Thats happened before to me, i went to check if the mail had arrived, just as i went through a few letters came through along with a slip, i opened the door and the postie went "eh, i thought noone would be in . . . " and i just shut the door at that, grr, lazy bas!

    This was a parcel force slip tho, so, hopefully they wouldnt have done that!

    In the USA, we call that Murphy's Law.

  5. I have a certain route I drive to get back to the office every day, and without fail these days, I round the corner and head up to the traffic light, just as it has let cars through and is turning red again. I think there's gremlins messing with me!:bag:

    Judas Priest would probably consider that "breakin the law."
  8. Heh. This summer my uni decided to fedex me my housing information a mere 3 days after it was due. Needless to say, it got not-delivered and put back on the truck. I had to drive 30 miles to get it. Grrrgrumblestupidcountryfedexstationsontheothersideofthelake.
