Why this had to happen to us…….
When there is a very long road upon which there is a narrow one-way bridge placed at random, and there are only two cars on that road, it follows that the two cars are going in opposite directions, and they will always meet at the bridge. Imagine another situation; you're sitting in eight lanes of bumper-to-bumper traffic. You're more than ready to get home, but 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, are moving -- except yours. You are trying to be God fearing, do not involve yourself in devilish tendencies and are helpful to the people. Your contemporary is scandalous; sky is the limit for his devilish tendencies. While every body is in the know of the activities of you both, at the end of the day, while your friend evades punishment for his misdeeds you are dubbed and punished for something you have never done. The perceived perversity of the universe has long been a subject of discussion. In our day to day life we are confronted with several such enigmatic perversities which we simply dismiss as test from God (aazmaaish) or our bad luck/our stupidity or something that is beyond our control. When such a thing happens, we in a sarcastic tone call it as ‘QAAIDA’, in Kashmiri, though a misnomer in its entirety.
A list of perversities would include our day to day experiences like when leaving work early, you will meet your boss in the parking lot; after your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch; when attempting to open a locked door with only one hand free, the key will be in the opposite pocket; a clean tie would always attract the soup of the day; the most heavily traveled streets spend the most time under repair; the child who begs to sleep late on school days will be up before dawn on the weekends; the most flattering comments on your hair come the day before you're scheduled to have it cut; no matter how well you perform your job, a superior will seek to modify the results; every organization has an allotted number of positions to be filled by misfits; no matter how early you arrive, someone else is in line first; anything that begins well ends badly; anything that begins badly ends worse; when the going gets tough, everyone leaves; when you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will; traffic congestion increases in proportion to the length of time the street is supervised by a traffic control officer; chipped dishes never break; the more an item costs, the farther you have to send it for repairs; if you file it, you'll know where it is but never need it; if you don't file it, you'll need it but never know where it is; when the meal you are preparing is on schedule, the guests will be 45 minutes late; when the guests are on time, the meal will be 45 minutes late and ; a child will not spill on a dirty floor.
Anything that can go wrong will go so. If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong. If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then. If anything simply cannot go wrong, it will anyway. If you think that there are five possible ways in which a procedure can go wrong, circumvent these, and be ready a sixth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop. Left to themselves, things are sure go from bad to worse. If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something. Nature always sides with the hidden flaw. It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious. SNAFU (situation normal: all fouled up) in simple terms means that the normal situation is in a bad state, as it always is, and therefore nothing is unexpected. Snafu also sometimes refers to a bad situation, mistake, or cause of trouble.
Whenever we set out to do something, something else must be done first. Every solution breeds new problems. In the aggravating world of Murphy's Law, whatever can go wrong will go wrong. And it may just be right. This isn't because of some mysterious power the law possesses. 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. How many times do we reach a destination and think, "I walk really well"? But when we trip over a curb and skin our knees, it's a pretty good bet we wonder why this had to happen to us.
Perhaps the best explanation for our attraction to Murphy's Law is an underlying sense of fatalism, the idea that we're all powerless to the whims of fate. This notion says that the things that happen to us are unavoidable. It's the idea that there's some kind of universal law at work that takes a certain pleasure at toying with us. Fatalism contradicts free will. On the one hand, Murphy's Law reveals to us our own undeniable stupidity. If given a chance to do something wrong, we'll do so around half of the time; but that comes from our own choices. On the other hand, Murphy's Law also reveals to us our lack of control, as in the case of always seeming to be stuck in the slowest lane of traffic.
Sod's Law, is a name for the axiom "anything that can go wrong, will". "Toast will always land butter side down" is often given as an example of Sod's Law in action. The phrase is seemingly derived, at least in part, from the colloquialism an "unlucky sod"; a term used to describe someone who has had some bad unlucky experience, and is usually used as a sympathetic reference to the person. In these aspects it is similar to some definitions of irony, particularly the irony of fate. An example of "bad fortune will be tailored to the individual" includes the loss of hearing is bad fortune for anyone, but it is Sod's Law that it would happen to a brilliant composer. Example of "good fortune that will occur in spite of the individual's actions" includes that if you take your raincoat and umbrella with you, it will be sunny—any attempt you make to control your destiny (in this case how wet you get) will be thwarted by fate.
