As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

Law of Dirty Rugs/Carpets:
The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich of landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet/rug.

No. As was pointed out by our anonymous poster above, most of these pull from variations of Murphy's Law: which by now have been so far separated fromtheir originators that it is almost impossible to verify original authorship. If anyone knows for sure a specific author (not just another site hosting variants on this list), I will be pleased to edit to acknowledge them.
