Karma Can Kiss My A$$

I've reached the conclusion that the whole good karma thing is a load of crap. Over the last two days, while driving, I've pulled over to help five different cars shovel/push/pull themselves out of snowbanks or ditches. Apparently no good deed goes unpunished. I walked out of work tonight to find my driver side mirror laying on the street next to my car. As if that's not enough, while driving up my own driveway, I get stuck. I back up to have another go at it, and my damn Focus develops a mind of it's own. I slide off the side of my driveway and mangle the side of my car. At least I couldn't break the mirror off, since it was alreadly gone! Then, just to piss me off, I seemed to have lost my keys somewhere in my driveway while trying to dig my car out.

Everything was going fine before, so apparently when I decided to be a good person is when things went wrong. Just a piece of advice... If you like your car, be a prick. Being nice doesn't seem to pay.

I help people a lot. Over the years it doesn't seem like I get much in return. I think that's par for the territory. I still do it. It's part of my "job" as I call it. Not getting anything in return, or bad luck is just part of the test to see if you're helping people for the sake of helping, or helping them for yourself.

Yeah, I've been disgruntled many times over it just like you are now.

Well, at least I found my keys! After looking at the mirror this morning, it seems to be strategically broken in all the right places to make me buy as many parts as possible! Stupid Ford engineers. If you're going to give us cheapo, non-folding mirrors, couldn't they at least break away without snapping off a tiny piece of plastic from everything in the surrounding area?

Couldn't agree with you more.

As far as doing good deeds goes, I question that myself. When I hit that huge piece of concrete last week, that day, I had stayed after work to help 4 or 5 women at work dig their cars out......

I still don't "expect" a reward everytime I do something for someone though. I know it'll come back around to me somehow, someway in a positive form.

When I do good works I dont expect it to come back to me in a good way or be rewarded for it.. I do it because its good to do.. I guess thats just me though
