All the wrestling with Blogger's photo upload tool recently (translation: it's flaky as heck) reminded me to post the Ricardipus Rules of Life™:
Nothing is ever easy.
First Corollary to the First Rule:
Everything is always difficult.
Second Corollary to the First Rule:
Nobody is any damn good at their job.
First Corollary to the Second Corollary:
If you want something done right, do it yourself. [N.B. this is non-original, but follows logically.]
And finally, considering both the Second Corollary to the First Rule and the First Corollary to the Second Corollary jointly:
When you do it yourself, you'll screw it up.
So now you know. It's not your fault, it's just the way life is. According to me.
