Murphy's Law?

I really do not know why.  I sometimes wonder if it is Murphy's Law working to the extreme.

I seem to be having problem with products and services that I purchased.  They all have defects and I will have to get it exchanged, repaired or replaced almost all the time.

Today.  My new three seater sofa needs to be repaired.  There are gaps between the three back rest cushions.  The seat is not aligned and the back leg is shorter than the front ones.  So they will cart it back on Monday.

Last Monday.  I had to return my glasses because the multi coat cracked.  I decided to ask another optician to refit my glasses because I was feeling giddy.  My whole world seemed to be moving incongruently.  One look and the optician told me that the multicoating on the lens has cracked. So I sent it back to my optician for it to be replaced.

At my own expense, I recently resprayed my car bonnet again because the insurance panel workshop did a lousy job.  I sent it to a supposedly reputable spray paint shop.  One week later, I noticed that the paintwork was substandard.  Now the car is back at the spray paint shop.

A month ago.  I sent my iPhone back to Maxis because the shut off button stopped working.  I am still waiting for the replacement set.

Recently.  I have sent two pairs of my pants back to the shop because the threads were not stitched properly.  It was coming off and the pants were tearing apart!  They are not cheap by the way!

The list go on and on.

I realized that  this always happen to me, again and again.  

I am perplexed as to why I am at the receiving end always.

Keep your chin up. When things are this bad, it can only get better.

And well, you've probably heard this a million times, but it's true when people say that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn how to let go. Things go wrong, so that you appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
