Where does it say "if you want something they don't have it, but if you don't they do" in Murphy's law?

I have been trying to add two t-shirts to my shopping cart online and got miffed when they don't have my size. I need some explanation as to why that is happening.

    Murphy's Law is just descriptions of common annoyances.

    The essence is: "If anything can go wrong, it will".

    Nothing really new about it, there is a line in "The Art of War" (which dates from something like 500 BC):

    "No plan survives contact with the enemy" - that's saying pretty much the same thing..

    Your line is just another example phrasing - many definitions of Murphy's Law have peoples examples added.
