Law Number One: if your back is playing up things will drop on the floor.

Oh dear, lucky! Too much sorting out?

GrannyGravy13 Tue 01-Sep-20 13:06:41

If your proper hair dryer breaks your backup one breaks a few days later 🤬

Pre-Lockdown, have nothing on the calendar socially for months, then 2 events same day and time.

If you spend money and effort buying and installing in a cupboard a set of containers for different things to put out to recycle in separate boxes on separate days, your local authority will immediately change its policy to having you chuck it all into one wheelie bin for collection once a fortnight and sorting at the depot.

As soon as you have cleaned the floor one of your pets will come in and be sick on it.

That's just happened sodapop with both dogs either because they gorged their tea or ate something nasty when out with Mr. S.

As soon as you sit down to lunch your Tesco order will arrive early.

When you throw out, give to a charity ir give away an item that you haven’t used for years and then find you need it. Gave away the two stair gates during lockdown that we used at our house for DGC when small, (they are now 9). DD is now getting a puppy and needs to buy some gates.

If you invite friends over for a garden meet-up it will rain.

Elegran Tue 01-Sep-20 17:55:49

If you cancel that garden meetup because rain is forecast, it won't.

If you have a small cut on your finger and you are squeezing a lemon, a trickle of juice will find the cut...

Nortsat Tue 01-Sep-20 18:04:11

Sodapop, you’ve been looking in through our kitchen window .... haven’t you?

EllanVannin Tue 01-Sep-20 18:18:49

Peace and quiet for days on end, no callers etc----until the minute you sit down and eat and the phone goes grin.

This is what makes you into a Victor Meldrew when you utter to yourself " I don't believe it ."

sodapop Tue 01-Sep-20 20:28:57

I'm glad I'm not alone Norstat & Smileless hope your dogs are ok now.

The heating/hot water goes off during a cold spell

Your toast ALWAYS falls butter side down

Life's a bitch, then you die

Franbern Wed 02-Sep-20 11:37:48

Those phone, etc. chargers which can only go in ONE way, but have TWO sides. Not only can you guarantee that the first attempt at putting it in will not be successful, but then also usually the second attempt. So it is usually the THIRD attempt (back to first side) that finally works!!!!

You order groceries on line two weeks in advance

You then receive a checkup appt at the surgery which overlaps the delivery time.

If order does not come in first 30 minutes kind SIL is sitting in my flat for last 30 mins to receive order !

If I cancel surgery appt God knows when I’ll get another!

Your doorbell always rings when you are in the loo, when you have been waiting with your legs crossed for that parcel all morning.

Lucca Thu 03-Sep-20 18:25:56

You will beg and cajole small GC to try and go to the loo before you go out, they won’t then when you’re in the middle of the playground they will need a poo far far away from nearest loo
