The law of physics (not really) that pertains to the difficulty of finding a lost TV remote, set of keys, etc. The only logical explanation is that the item has dropped into a black hole and the only way to bring it back to this realm is to stop looking for it. Once you've gone about your day, it practically falls back into your lap.
I was late to work today because I couldn't find my keys! My boss was okay with it, though. I told him it was The Universal Law of the Lost Remote.
