Murphy’s Law affects many people’s daily lives. This unofficial
law states: anything that can go wrong will go wrong and Murphy
strikes Fort Collins in ways that only CSU students can relate
Below, I have compiled a list of the top Murphy’s Laws at CSU,
and even more reasons to look forward to the end of Finals
Weather: When it is hot all week long, it will snow on the day
you decide to wear shorts, and the one time you miss the bus, it
will be a blizzard outside.
Vending machines: The day you are severely hungry, the vending
machine will reject your only dollar.
Walking: The day you are headed through campus and trying to
look hot for the attractive group of males/females behind you, you
will suddenly fall up the stairs while books and papers scatter
Exams: During an exam in a silent room filled with students,
your nose will not stop running.
Sleep: When you fall asleep in class, everyone will witnesses
you twitch abruptly when you wake up and there will be drool all
over your face and desk.
Cell phones: The only time you forget to turn your cell phone
ringer off before class, your mom calls. (Your phone will ring loud
and clear with the dorky seasonal ring you downloaded.)
Parties: You throw a party and when people finally start singing
and dancing, the CD will begin to skip. Also, the best parties
occur over the weekends you leave town and there is nothing fun to
do the times you stay in town.
Bars: When you wear your brand new, sexy white shirt to a club,
the first thing you do is spill your drink across the front of
Parents: The morning your parents surprise you with a visit is
also the morning after you threw a huge party and there are beer
bottles scattered and people passed out all over your house, not to
mention the crusted vomit your parents discover in a random
IDs: You finally find the perfect fake ID and the first place
you go it gets taken but all of your friends get in without
problems, even though their IDs are awful.
Trains: The final law that only CSU students can share will
happen when you are late and in a huge rush, the longest train you
have ever seen will run through the length of Fort Collins and you
will wait in traffic for an extra 20 minutes.
Note: Murphy’s Law is incredibly frustrating when they happen to
you, but hilarious when they occur to someone else, especially
because we have all been there before.
