  2. A black fly in your Chardonnay
  3. A death row pardon two minutes too late
  4. Rain on your wedding day
  5. A free ride when you’ve already paid
  6. The good advice that you just didn’t take
  7. A traffic jam when you’re already late
  8. A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
  9. Ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
  10. Meeting the man of your dreams then meeting his beautiful wife
