Jest for Pun logo Murphy's Laws on Work

Heller's observation :
I love work. I can sit and watch it done for hours.

Zymurgy's Law of Volunteer Labor :
People are always available for work in the past tense.

Benchley's Law :
Anyone can do any amount of work, provided it is not the work he is supposed to be doing at that moment.

Clyde's Law :
If you have something to do, and you put it off long enough, chances are someone else will do it for you.

Crane's Rule :
There are three ways to get something done:
do it yourself, hire someone, or forbid your kids to do it.

Weiler's Law :
Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to do it himself.

Moer's Truism :
The trouble with most jobs is the resemblance to being in a sledge dog team. No one gets a change of scenery, except the lead dog.

Cannon's Comment :
If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire, the next morning you will have a flat tire.

Don't be irreplaceable, if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

Nothing motivates a man more than to see his boss putting in a hard days work.
