Description
"If there is one Official Rule that reigns supreme at home, it's Gumperson's Law: "The probability of anything happening is in inverse ratio to its desirability." It's a universal phenomenon you probably know all too well." "From car repair to home improvement, houseplant morbidity to in-law management, Paul Dickson offers a delightful compendium of maxims and bylaws guaranteed to help you make sense of the chaos of home life." "Have you ever experienced the following? Rosenbaum's Rule. The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement; Sprehe's Discovery. How to locate the slow-moving traffic lane or checkout line: Get in it; Hood's Employment Rule. Never hire a plumber who wears rubber boots or an electrician who has scorched eyebrows." "For much more of this wisdom, read on. The Official Rules at Home offers the kind of insight that could save you thousands in therapy."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
