Pronunciation: kar mad

Sentence: Yes Wendy Murphy was upset. It happened again. It was another example of the karmad she had felt lately. Whatever could go wrong, did go wrong...Murphy's Law indeed. And now again her breakfast was ruined. The bread had fallen and landed butter-side down...on her not so clean floor. It probably was because she never learned. Don't butter the bread before you put it in the toaster. It never just pops up, it always goes flying when it is done!

Etymology: Karma (the effects of a person's actions that determine his destiny;fate;kismet) & Mad (very foolish;affected with madness or insanity)
