We’ve all experienced the “buttered toast phenomenon.” It’s a scientific fact that toast will always land jam-side down, just to add a little more annoyance to our day.
2. You cannot dress right for the weather
Don’t you love it when you forget to bring a coat, and it starts pouring rain? Or when you bring an umbrella, and the sun comes out in full force? Mother Nature has a way of keeping us on our toes.
3. Masses of people come in just as you close the cubicle door
There’s something about closing the cubicle door in a public restroom that attracts a sudden influx of people. It never fails to happen, leaving us desperately hoping for some privacy.
4. You will fall sick on your day off
Looking forward to some well-deserved time off? Be prepared for your body to betray you with a sudden head cold or flu. It’s as if your immune system knows when you have free time and decides to go on strike.
5. It will rain just after you wash the car
There’s nothing more frustrating than spending time washing your car, only for it to be drenched in rain moments later. It’s enough to make anyone question the laws of nature.
6. Paths of love will never run smoothly

7. Postman will come just as you step into the bath
It’s a universal law that as soon as you step into a relaxing bath, the postman decides to make a delivery. The frustration of missing a package is enough to make you want to scream.
8. No bus for 30 minutes, then 3 arrive at the same time
Public transportation loves to test our patience. You wait forever for a bus, and when it finally arrives, it’s accompanied by two others. It’s as if they have a secret agreement to make your commute as frustrating as possible.
9. Red lights all the way into town when you’re late
When you’re in a hurry, every traffic light seems to turn red. It feels like a never-ending journey as you watch the minutes tick away while waiting for the lights to change.
10. Looking crap? You’ll bump into your ex
It’s a universal truth that you will always run into your ex when you look your absolute worst. Forget about bumping into them when you’re feeling confident and happy – it’s guaranteed to happen when you’re hungover, unkempt, and generally not at your best.
