This is a question Karma

Sue Denham writes, "I once slipped out of work two hours early without the boss noticing. In my hurry to make the most of this petty victory, I knocked myself out on the car door and spent the rest of the day semi-conscious, bowking rich brown vomit over my one and only suit."

Have you been visited by the forces of Karma, or watched it happen to other people?

Thanks to Pooflake for the suggestion

first \o/
Someone else described this as Karma, I say it's just screwed.

Over xmas, had a brief unattentive moment whilst driving and spanged the back of another car. Other car was fine, my car started bleeding and had to have lots of repairs.

So anyway, all goes well and I get my shiny courtesy car. Well, I say "shiny", it was a sodding Nissan Micra with a little engine, but at least it worked.

On the way back to return the courtesy car, I get rear-ended by another car in an almost freakish mirror of the circumstances that lead to me needing the courtesy car in the first place.

So, it's sort of Karmic in the sense of "what goes around comes around", but it's also horribly fucked up because both times my car was the only one to get damaged ;-).

You get a click
for the bleeding car image. Hehehehe.

(hope all is well now though, 'course)

it's getting there
The courtesy car only had a cracked bumper, so it was easy to continue to the garage to return it. So i got my car back, and they're supposed to be fixing the courtesy car then billing me for the excess.

The worst bit of the whole lot was actually getting the insurers to grasp the concept of the whole thing ;)

"no. not that car, this one?"
"whose car is that?"
"it's the one you gave me when I crashed mine"

oh dear
What a palaver. I'd start supporting phone taps if I could listen in to that conversation.

Even your reply made me laugh though :)

just remember to claim for the excess you have to shell out for the courtesy car from the insurers of the person who drove into the back of you, after all its technically their fault.

I'm still waiting for the repairers to bill me for it first... I don't particularly see the point in chasing the garage over it - it's not like I want or need the courtesy car (i have mine back) and I'm in no rush to part with my excess if I can continue to earn interest on it.
