Murphy’s Law In Action

, | Right | June 11, 2008

Me: “Tall latte on the bar.”

(The latte does not get claimed.)

Me: “We’ve got a tall latte up here, ready for pickup.”

(The latte still does not get claimed. We make drinks for a few other customers, giving it a few more minutes.)

Me: “Okay, last call for a tall latte. If nobody claims it we’re pitching it.”

(The latte once against does not get claimed.)

Me: “Okay, then…”

(I pour the drink down the sink.)

Me: *to a coworker* “I bet that in less than 30 seconds we’ll get someone asking about a tall latte.”

Woman: *exactly 0.0001 seconds later* “Hi, was there a tall latte?”
