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

Looking back.
Sometimes I wonder what everyone from school is up to now. I'm in a different part of the country, so opportunities to find out are limited to visiting my parents at Christmas and the like.

The local Tesco in my hometown seems to be staffed exclusively by people I knew at school who, if I'm being honest, I am quite happy to see still stuck working there, living with their parents, progressing no further than the wasted lives that they thought were oh so cool when they were teenagers.

On the other side, the people I want to see doing well are, by and large, managing that. Some of them are doing very well indeed. I'm quite happy seeing that too.

The really bad ones I don't know about. Perhaps they are pulling in more money than I am, or have won the lottery, or any of the other good things that seem to be happening to the bad people in other people's stories. But that doesn't upset me.

That's because I know this; truly bad people punish themselves. It doesn't matter how much good fortune comes their way, sooner or later they'll wreck it. Like being a chav, being a bastard is its own punishment. Their bad natures will not allow them to enjoy what they have, or cause them to lose it; the aggressive and arrogant driving their BMW into a tree, the abusive and violent putting themselves on the wrong side of the law, the selfish and heartless losing all hope of love...the list goes on.

If you want to believe it, perhaps karma gives good things to bad people only so that they feel the loss much more severely when they get what they really deserve. It's a comforting thought, even if untrue.

You just have to be patient. :)
