Karma Koupon of the Nocturne

This particular one gets awarded to me, since I did it and it's my fucking blog. So there.

This past Sunday, I was filling my car with horrendously overpriced refined petroleum when I noticed that the young guy in an older model Mercedes had started to drive away with his gas cap off and the filler door open. I mused about that for a moment until I saw him heading into the automated carwash.

During this time, I was talking to Jodi and told her about the event. (I'm adding this credit 'cause she'll kill me if I don't.) She agreed that I would have to point this out.

So I pulled my car up to the carwash entrance and ran in just as the soap started drizzling, waving at the driver to let him know that I wasn't just touching his car for no reason. I closed the filler door, at which point the guy backed out and exited the car.

He thanked me for saving him from what would have been a disastrous turn of events.

I earned my Koupon for the day.

Tell me your Karma Koupon story.

  2. Two out of your last four posts you've mentioned Jodi killing you. Ya know, there's places you can go for help. Make a clean break, start over. You don't have to live like this. Remember "The Burning Bed"? You don't want to end up like that.

    Jodi-I'm SO kidding! Please, please don't kill me!

  4. Jodi, I'd be more worried if she wished Ryan O'Neal on you. That bastard's worse than anal cancer.

    I can't for the life of me remember the last time I did something nice, so I have nothing to add to this heartwarming post.

    Suck it, karma.

  5. Tuesday night I watched a little truck in front of me on the highway almost wipe out when it suddenly swerved. I quickly discovered why: a truck had just lost it's whole tire tread and it was laid out across the whole lane we were driving in. I was just about to exit and I knew there was a police station close by so I detoured and reported it to an officer sitting in his car who typed it into his (very cool, may I add) little onboard laptop-thingy and it was dealt with tout suite! My good deed for the day.

    Off to buy a lottery ticket. Just in case. :o)

  6. Nice work, Laura! A Karma Koupon will be sent to your email soon!

    You'll recognize it by its subject line: "Sameday hurry of V1A6R4!!!"

  7. Still waiting for that coupon...

    Karma does work though, I won tickets to see the ladies play tennis in Toronto (Rogers Cup) tomorrow and Tuesday...woo hoo!


Dance for me, my little puppets ...
