OK, I must have some really messed up karma.
In case you haven't figured it out, I'm a little obsessed with the stupid green candles at the moment. Seriously, if any of you would like to get together and throw an intervention on my behalf I'll be grateful. I'll even bring the stupid green candles for ambience. LOL!
I decided that I must have some truly messed up karma going on cause that's the only thing that can explain why I've been so miserable lately. Well, that and the fact that my principal has been acting like a total tool since August.
Something happened at school a couple of days ago and I've been trying to talk to my principal about it since it happened. I'm angry. He knows I'm angry. He has been too "busy" to talk to me.
I just keep trying to remind myself that summer will be here soon enough and Vegas will be here even sooner than that!
Anyway, I woke up this morning and thought that I needed to do something to change my karma. I needed to be a better me!
I needed to go by the ATM and after I did that I stopped and handed my favorite homeless person some money. Now, I know that some people will think the fact that I even have a favorite homeless person will prove that my karma is messed up beyond repair. But, I still gave something to someone who has even less than I do even though my stupid green candle isn't working and I'm still poor and have to go to work everyday.
When I got to work I resisted the urge to tell my principal exactly what I think of him and his no fun at school approach to education. That alone should have done wonders to improve my karma!
On the way home I needed to stop at the grocery store. I had exactly three items to pay for and headed right for the express lane. There was only one other person there and she had about 100 thousand items over the 10 item limit. I resisted the urge to ask the cashier if there was an express lane open and to give the lady in front of me a nasty look after the cashier confirmed that I was indeed standing in the 10 items or less lane. Instead, I just sucked it up and stood there quietly since it was still the shortest line in the store.
The lady in front of me must have way worse karma than I do! That's the only thing I can think of that would have caused her to be as mean as she was. She complained because she had picked up the wrong items and didn't get what was on sale. She acted like it was the cashiers fault and didn't care that even more people had started to line up behind me. This lady actually DEMANDED that the poor cashier go get her the right can of whatever it was that she wanted to buy on sale and the poor girl was so flustered that she actually left to go get it.
Once the cashier walked away the lady turned to me and said, "Can you believe how things are run around here?"
I couldn't help it! I had tried to be good all day and it was just more than I could handle. I replied...
Well, I 'm not sure, but I think that if you tried just a little harder you could be even ruder to that girl.
The lady didn't seem to understand the point I was trying to make because she agreed with me, but the guy who was standing behind me sure got a laugh out of my response.
Karma.....I take two steps forward and one step back.....
