View Full Version : Anyone else wish Murphy would visit somewhere else for a while?

Seems like a lot of people are getting hit by annoying problems lately. My list, for the last 30 days, includes:

* Replace the dryer.
* 3 weeks later, the washer decides to pack it in, too.
* Mike's Harley started acting up. He takes it to the neighbor (used to work at one of the local dealerships). It needs some servicing, carb rebuild (he says no one uses carbs any more), head needs to come off and the last place that worked on it loctited one of the bolts in. Takes him 3 days to work it loose. The bike will still need a rear tire and the bearings repacked.
* Replace the DVD player
* Give up on being able to concentrate with the call center next to me. Buy a set of noise canceling headphones so I can get some work done.
* Replace the struts and shocks on one of the cars.
* Last night, have the air conditioning fixed (capacitor blew, needed new refrigerant)

Murphy is not only wearing thin, but he's getting expensive.

ah so that's where he went. :D He spent quite a bit of time here last year so I was happy to see him leave. hopefully he won't stay long with you.

I know the feeling of having a visit. In the last 6 months I've twice had a $3000 car repair bill (ie total $6000). My girlfriend had surgery about a year ago and is still having abdominal pains. As a result she hasn't been able to work the last year and she has only one more unemployment check left. Also her son got kicked out of school for not attending enough classes about 3 weeks ago and has spent these last three weeks in the basement in deep depression.

So Murphy, go away and don't bother anybody else in this forum.

Bambi gives good hugs. Asnow, so far I've avoided health issues. So my sympathy for those.
