Karma Cleansing



I have done some bad things. To be fair, I can explain:

1. I lack empathy.
2. I have a grandiose sense of self.

I like these facets of my personalities.

However, in light of the whole Voodoo Priestess thing, I have decided to clean up my Karma.

The opportunity presented itself yesterday. I witnessed a truck back directly into a parked car and drive off. I sprang into action. I reached into my purse. Pulled out my business card and a pen and wrote, "I saw what happened to your car." Then I tucked it neatly under the windshield wiper.

Did I get the tag? No.
Did I chase down the driver? No.
Did I demand that the security guard on the loading dock review the surveillance tape? No.

But still, I think the owner of the vehicle will feel better just knowing that I cared enough to take the time out of my busy day to leave a note.

Here are some other things I plan to do to realign my planets:

1. Recycle.
2. Pick up a bar tab for someone that I don't even know.
3. Complement my co-worker on her new hair.
4. Try to mean it.

dallas,

It's the trying to mean it part that's hard for me.

Mist -

If you wanna spend the kinda cash you will by picking up a stranger's bar tab, why don't you just buy them a car?? Not only will the Karma Cops be impressed by your generosity, but you can get quite a deal on some of the imports and it might save you a bit in the long run...

Just a thought.

mr. g,

With the oil crisis and air polution, I'm not sure that the Karma Cops would reflect warmly on that gesture. This weekend I'm going to hang out at a car dealership, near the hybrids. We'll see what happens.

Mist1,

I love your blog, and even if it's not purposely to bring a smile to every wanderer who surfs in I think you have. Well *I* have a smile.

On the impending Karmic Cleansing:
Take notes from those lil Boy scouts and help an older person cross the street mebbe or when someone drops something and you see it go help them out and wait to laugh until they are out of earshot.

Just tips i find useful ...

Maybe you should watch "My name is Earl" and you can get more Karma cleansing tips.

I don't watch it but it's on right before THE OFFICE which I refuse to miss a second of so I watch it with one eye only kinda inadvertently, like. THE OFFICE highly recommended. Thursdays

icl,

A flea has a longer attention span than I do. I cannot commit to a tv show. Plus, I have a fear of commitment.

You could send a faithful reader of your blog some money. Say someone like ME! It would do wonders for your Karma, trust me on this one. :P

1. Making lists.

Aren't you guys on that whole Euro thing? I have some left over pesos. Will you accept those instead?

I, too, lack empathy. Don't take it so hard, I find it charming in myself. :P

kristynmarie,

I think that kinda goes along with the whole lack of emapthy thing.

LOL I have nothing else just LOLOL
You crack me up. Please write a book. Or start a standup routine. Honestly, you would make HUGE money and the world will love your humour :) We all need to laugh.

echo,

I keep re-reading your comment. I feel like a humanitarian. Like I'm doing this for the good of the world and not just to get crap out of my head.

mayur,

I had no idea that blogging was good karma. That must explain why I haven't been carried off by a twister/struck by lightning/etc.

Thanks for coming by.
