I must need to adjust my karma

Filed under: It's Me, Lass — by InterstellarLass @ 8:57 am

The last two days have been the kind that make you want to just go back home, get in bed, and pull the covers over your eyes.

The first mistake I made yesterday was getting on the scale. Grumble, grumble. Then it expanded to realizing that I didn’t have my bank card. And then I was late for a meeting at work. And then I had to wait over 10 minutes at the bank to cash a check. And then I had to go all the way around the block, because the one back exit to the bank was blocked off for construction. And then I had a meeting, where no one showed up for the first 10 minutes, and then the one person that really needed to be there was 40 minutes late.

Today, again, my bank card was in someone else’s wallet. He shall remain nameless, but I think you can all guess who. And he didn’t make coffee this morning, so while sitting in line at Starbucks, I discovered the moths in my wallet where money and bank cards used to be. And then I was behind every slow grandma on the freeway. There was a bright spot when I cashed the check, but in the Starbucks parking lot by work I got cut off by an H2, a Toyota, and a Ford. Dude in the Toyota didn’t even look when he backed up, and the guy in the Ford whipped in from the other entrance and flew into a parking spot, making me slam on my brakes.

I sure wish I knew what was going on. But it feels like forces are conspiring against me for the moment. I swear I haven’t done anything bad lately. Even last night I helped an old lady with her knitting at the knit group meeting. She’d dropped a stitch two rows down, and I fixed it for her because she couldn’t see it. Maybe it’s because I got grumpy with my mom last night. She and my grandfather were trying to get pictures off a CD on his computer, and they called ‘tech support’ (me). The blind leading the blind. He swore it was in the right drive, but when you click on your CD drive, and it says insert disk, you either a) have the disk in upside down or b) you have the disk in the DVD drive and it won’t work. Swearing in my general direction (my crotchety old grandpa, not my mom) and telling me you’ve got it right doesn’t help.

I need a day off.


  1. I’ve had days and weeks like that, where it feels like the universe is just conspiring against you in every little thing. Hang in there, it will get better (and I’m the queen of moping and whining, so if I can say that, you know it must be true! 😉 ).

    And it’s almost Friday, so a day off isn’t too far away.

  2. Could be worse. You could have been shouted at by a irate Lawyer who asked “Do you live in some sort of fantasy world”?

    We both need a day off.

  6. Aw, poor girl. My week was like that last week. This week has been a little sucky but seems to be turning out okay.

    Tomorrow is Friday. Make Nick take you out for martini’s and a nice dinner.

  7. Wow, you are not having a good day. But I think you’re karma is probably fine. It’s a fluke. It will get better. but I blame my bad days on karma too. I always try and think about the bad things I do and then I try and even it out by doing something nice. I don’t know if it works.
