"Something like this probably happens to you at one time or another: One morning, from the moment you wake up, you're in a foul mood. You cut yourself while shaving. You rip off a button while putting on your shirt. The children get on your nerves and your wife seems irritable. When your customary three-minute eggs turn out to be much too soft, you hit the ceiling - and spill your coffee. You dash out, miss your bus, grab another, get into a hassle with the bus driver, and suddenly remember you've forgotten that package you were supposed to bring to work. All day long on your job everything seems to go wrong. Maybe you stop to wonder - who or what's responsible for your ill humor and the chain of mishaps? Well, blame it on the weather and you're apt to be right!"
