I often wonder if my family was cursed. We are the personification of Murphy's Law through and through. If it CAN happen, it WILL happen. Nothing
is ever simple and straight forward.
A few examples off the top of my head...I had a problem every single semester I was in college. My papers always get lost. My fed aid would be
delayed. Forms have to be signed 2-3 times because they disappear. On and on.
When I came to my graduation, I wasn't on the list and had to be added last minute.
My teaching certification got rejected because the school had filed my stuff and forgot about it. After I called to find the problem, they found my
file in the wrong cabinet and had no idea why it wasn't done correctly.
I applied for a job at a school and never got called for an interview. I found out that my application somehow got lost in the others and they
thought I had changed my mind about applying.
When I started the process of consolidating my loans, the websites gave me an error the company had never SEEN before and didn't know how to fix.
I applied to be a substitute at my local school and never heard anything. After a month or so I called and they had put my application in the wrong
file and hadn't put me on the list.
I can't tell you how often I hear " We've never seen this before.", "This never happens", "I have no idea why you are the only one this
happened to.", "You are an unusual case."
Just a few weeks ago our check to the internet company was lost after I gave it to them.
These are all just examples that I can recall in the last few months. It is so common now I except issues to arise when I try to do anything. This
is the same for everyone in my family. Heck, my uncle was the only one in his graduating class who didn't get his diploma because they lost it.
I'd love a way to find a curse in the family and a way to fix it!
