“Murphy’s Law”

From my “Murphy’s Law” desk calendar archives thanks to Aunt Evelyn, Uncle Pipey, and cousin Nancy:

Heller’s Law: The first myth of management is that it exists.
Johnson’s Corollary: Nobody knows what is going on anywhere in the organization.
Goofy guy’s addition to Heller’s Law and Johnson’s Corollary (in collusion with Pete Toennies): A great deal of the law and the corollary is initiated by the Jewell-Toennies (or Toennies-Jewell, depending on whom you believe) theory of “Synergistic Dysfunction:”© If there are more than two people in any organization or group, dysfunction is present and will expand exponentially as more people are included.
