From my “Murphy’s Law” desk calendar archives thanks to Aunt Evelyn, Uncle Pipey, and cousin Nancy:
Wright’s First Law of Quality: Quality is inversely proportional to the time left for completion of the project.
Goofy guy’s Navy First Lieutenant’s reflection on Wright’s First Law of Quality: It remains amazing to this old deck officer how many CO’s and XO’s would scream about properly painting out the ship, i.e. quality, but then demand radioing (Navy term for painting over rust, etc.) when a senior Navy officer or high-ranking government official was visiting within a week.
