Murphey's Law

We just had new snow tires put on our car. Because we live in Japan and the type of tires we need, we had to have them special ordered. We just had them put on less than 2 weeks ago. Tonight, our 17 yr old was driving (we live on base, teens can drive inside the base gates), and he hit a curb on the side of the road. The curbing had been flipped on it's side, apparently with metal sticking out, and sliced the sidewall of the tire open.

I'm glad everyone was ok, but there's a part of me that's thinking - couldn't this have happened 2 wks ago with the old tires??

So, what "Murphey's Law" thing has gotten you lately?

  • Oh man - I agree, I don't think that's Murphey's law getting you anon04, I think that's like Murphey's whole family all gunning for you!

    I hope things get better soon!

    Anon16 - I feel your pain, too! That's how I feel about the tire - now we have to call the place, custom order a new tire that has to be shipped in, and of course, pay for a new tire when we just bought this one (it's not an insurmountable amount, but still... We paid 60000 Yen for 4 tires, and with the rate at like 88 Yen to the Dollar... :-(

    I hope your rug comes clean!!
