Let’s get this straight, Murphy you are not welcome here.

You know Murphy you always turn up at the worst possible time.  Take for instance last Tuesday. We were running late for school drop off and all of a sudden you need to rear your ugly head.

Rush rush rush, EVERYBODY in the car NOW!!!

WAIT- why won’t my key not turn from the lock? It’s stuck. Why???

Omg in the moment of rush I had managed to lock the door with the wrong key and get it stuck in there….. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Panic sets in, running late, the key is stuck!  And stuck tight!

I proceed to take off my other keys and run around to the front door to see if I could unlock the door from the other side… der of course I couldn’t. I run around to the back door and think to myself, its stuck no one will be able to open it, let’s goooooooooooooooo!!

Shut the screen door which then wedges itself onto the stuck key… great. Two doors now unable to be opened…

I did manage to get the kids to school on time, phew. Next question, ring a lock smith? Landlord?

I decided the landlord would be cheaper…. although how embarrassing…

I fumbled my way through my explanation whilst he dismantled the lock – Yep the whole lock had to be pulled apart to retrieve the key which was bent out of shape due to trying to get it unstuck…

Needless to say, in future when rushing I will make sure that I am not distracted whilst locking up!

What is your Murphy furphy? Have you had a bad case of Murphy’s law?

  • i have put the key in the lock of my car and turned it and it snapped lol


  • Lol, funny read and I can so see this happening to me.


  • Oh no! I would have panicked my head off! Thanks for sharing your story :)


  • uurrgghh this is me all the time, whenever anything can’t go wrong it does every time. Can’t pinpoint one thing as it happens so often, so frustrating


  • it always happens all at the same time! at least you don’t break the window to get in ;)


  • yup, anything can go wrong at the worst possible moment


  • How awful, I once locked myself out of the house twice in one week. The first time I didn’t even have my handbag with me.


  • Good read thanks for the information


  • Poor you! Yes Murphy’s law is always around at the worst times!


  • If something gets broken, it’s usually by me.


  • Oh no you poor thing, and yes it murphys law


  • I really enjoyed reading this, thanks for sharing. You have so many great stories to tell.


  • Yes, or the day you pop out back to hang out a load of washing and suddenly the one year old slams the back door locking you out and him in, because you forgot to put it on safety mode. Which meant not only admitting what had happened to the next door neighbour so you could use her phone but also admitting it to your Mother so she’d come over with the spare key! Yes, Murphy is always turning up when least wanted.

    • oh no haha remember locking myself out too, sigh.


  • haha, always the way it goes!


  • thanks for sharing was a great read
