    I can add to Number 9 and so can any mother.

    9.1/2 All you have to do is announce that YOUR kid will never, ever eat that particular food in front of him and he will instantly prove you wrong by scarfing it down like a starving wolf!

    # 6 1/2 The shortest line in the grocery store will be the one that has the slowest checker, the customer with the most coupons and the one that can't find their id or the check reader will mess up. But this will only happen AFTER you've put your two carts of food on the belt.

    So true.
    I've found a very similar law to #13-

    If there are only six people in the grocery store, they will all be looking at McIntosh apples at the same time. Four of them will have empty shopping carts blocking the way.
