Acquiring the bad karma
A couple of months ago, I went to Best Buy and, when the cashier told me my total, I thought it was a little low but thought I must have stumbled upon a bargain. When I got to the car, I noticed that I hadn't been charged for a $20 item.
My initial reaction wasn't "hot damn, good for me." It was, "Dammit, I have to walk back in there and tell them." But, laziness won out and I didn't go back into the store. I felt bad about it all the way home until I opened the item and it was broken. While that eased my guilt a little, I could still feel the dark cloud of bad karma hanging over my head.
Cleaning up the bad karma
When I was balancing my checkbook Sunday, I noticed that my car dealership had charged my debit card $3.94 for a $49.94 oil change and wheel alignment. I called the dealership Monday and had to talk to three different people before anyone fully understood I was trying to GIVE them money.
Now, my karma is all even again. Namaste.
