I think some people can get away with bad behavior and never pay the price.
Me.....I have Instant Karma....
In fact the Karma Police sit on my shoulder and write me a ticket the minute I offend.
Take for example what I did that was not so nice yesterday.
It was the day after Columbus Day, and I had to go to the post office to mail off some herbs for my customers. The parking lot of course was full, and people seemed to be a bit on the assertive side.
I finally found a parking space, but in order to get into that spot, I had to back up, angle half way in, and let other cars pass me so that I could finish getting into the space. While I was waiting for cars to pass, this one guy tries to pull into MY parking space, oblivious to my obvious ownership of the space....Errrrrr
Five times I had to tell him that I was parking here... and finally I had to actually get out of the car, and yell at the guy, while not being very pleasant; "Whats wrong with you, can't you see that I am parking here?"
This guy acted acted as if he did not hear me, then I had to repeat it AGAIN (I know he did hear me, he was trying to annoy me)....Thats when I said to him; "Don't be an idiot"
ZZZZZZZet Instant Karma immediately strikes me for my offense.
I then finish parking, while muttering under my breath what an idiot that guy was, and not really paying attention to my own parking job.
I go into the post office for only about five minutes and then I return to the car.
When I come out of the post office, standing by my car, there is this very irritate looking guy, and I mean VERY irritated....I walked cautiously up to him and asked "Is there a problem?"...and he answered;
"Yeah, there's a problem, ya wanna come over and see?"
My radar was up and I knew I had an issue here to contend with......I then said "No"....because I had no idea what he wanted, was he a rapist or something?....Then he says;
"What kinda idiot are you anyway, you fucking Idiot.....Come here and look at what you did.."
This verbal abuse went on for a solid minute. He was yelling at me as I walked around the car and I saw what had made this guy so mad at me. I could see that I had done a very poor job of parking and had positioned my car in too close to his so that he could not enter his driver side door!
As I was surveying what I had done, he managed to call me an idiot no less then five times. I of course profusely apologized over and over....and all I could think about when this was happening was;
What an IDIOT I can be.
I think my spiritual dog blog lesson here today is that I shall never call anyone an idiot again.
I have to remember that my special Police are always there to immediately cite me when I offend the laws of Karma, and it is small incidents like this that serve as my reminder that "what comes around goes around" double fast for me.
