Murphy's Law

Okay, so I have known for sometime that Mr. Murphy is just out to get moms in general, but seriously? This is just not fair.

The amount of items needed at the store is directly proportionate to the number of minutes your children will behave
1 item = 1 minute of "go" time

Honestly, it's exasperating. I went to get one thing. ONE BLASTED THING!!! (Formula, for those of you who need to know) So, I got exactly one minute of "go" time before people started to whine. And cry. And I'm pretty sure there was kicking involved.

However, when I have to do major shopping, with all the munchkins, and need to get like, 200 things, they're angels.

Why? Why is it this way? Does it make any sense at all to you?

*Sidenote* Do you think Mr. Murphy really "came up" with an actual scientific theory, hence Murphy's law? Or do you think it has more to do with the fact that he just was the first to voice his observations over life's oddities? Is there an actual scientific equation? Okay, I think I just answered my own question because now I'm thinking it probably has to do with the probability of "a" happening during "b" and so on and so forth. Okay. Strike the question from the record.

Sigh. I don't like Mr. Murphy.
