Remember This: Karma Is a Tough Bit**.by caroline
This is a little of how our night went yesterday …
Around 11:30, my phone started ringing and I noticed it was our neighbors (who are also our friends) calling. Given the hour and that they were probably not calling to chit chat, my first thought was: I'm going to kill Dan for leaving the car lights on … again.
But instead [insert guilty feelings for previous thought here], I was met with this: "Caroline, somebody just hit your car … and drove away."
I was just about ready to crawl into bed and pray for a good night of rest that would kill this plague I have brewing and …. now this.
Dan and I bundled up and headed outside to assess the damage. Unfortunately, the crappy person who hit our car was able to reverse it and drive away before our neighbors could catch the license plate number. So, we called the police and filed a report, and now the rest is in our insurance company's hands.
Can you imagine how fast this person must have been driving to skid for a good 15 feet before hitting our car and shoving it forward (see middle picture) about 1-1/2 feet? Luckily, our car missed hitting into the one in front of it by a hair — I would hate for someone else to also have to deal with this mess.
There was a time when an incident like this would have really thrown me into a tizzy. And that's not to say that I'm not upset … because I really am. But I also have this belief that in someway that person has karma coming their way that is not-too-pretty. I tried to keep reminding myself of that last night every time I became angry about the fact that someone would do something so dishonest.
What about you? Do you believe in karma? Do you think that the universe has away of eventually making people own up to their wrong doings?
I'll be back later today with a new Gluten-Free with Rachael Ray Challenge recipe. For now, I have phone calls to make to our insurance company … woot, woot!
