Sods law is known as Murphys law which states - That if anything that can go wrong it will. I could a drop pile of coins that I got out of my pocket on to the pavement and they would all go down the drain right by my foot. Have you experienced sods law?

Haven't we all? It seems to happen quite frequently to me. Like, somebody hasn't done something they said they would, so I take the responsibility to do it myself... do it, and find it's already been done? I guess that sounds a bit confusing but I can't remember any real examples as it's happened so many times! My name's not Murphy, either! ha ha ha

That must be one of the classics doing something that has already been done. I am sure it happens a lot on myLot as when we think of a great discussion to start we find out that someone has just started it before you.

Many, many times actually although I never heard it called Sods law. Must be because here in the states they only call it Murphy's Law. There are some days where you swear that law is in full effect. You'll swerve to miss something in the road and hit a nail or you'll go to pour a bag of sugar and the bottom breaks..you name it, it will happen. Oh yeah lots of experience with that one.

Yes, it happens all of the time :( when you are hoping not to meet somebody today and they are in front of you, when your work is usually not checked frequently and just when you have something wrong hoping to fix by tomorrow; someone will come check on you.. the list can go on and on. Sometimes I can swear that this Murphy guy is out to get me.. I never did him wrong, why he hates me so much .. lol
