Do you believe in kharma? And, if you do, how do you think that it works? If you wish bad kharma on someone, does that mean that bad kharma will come to you?

Here's the story. I do not like my neighbor much. He's never held down a job and so he is home everyday, all day, which means that I need to try to keep my girls from making too much noise because apparently "it sounds like a marching band is coming through the wall" if they run around. You'd think that he was an old, cranky man, but he's actually just in his 20s.

So, I have to admit, I have wished upon him some heavy bad kharma. He does not have a job but somehow they have three cars, nice ones, and the other day one of the cars had a flat tire. I thought kharma had landed. And then said automobile got towed. And I thought that kharma had delivered him a one-two punch. But, I think that he just had it towed to get the tire fixed because it was back quickly.

And bad kharma has landed on my head.

After years of ordering with, they have managed to mess up an order. A bassinett. I am without my bassinett. Yesterday we got a tiny little box for a Ms. Jones and someone else somewhere got my bassinett.

Is this kharma's revenge? Must I learn to like my neighbor?

Oh never wish bad karma on others. It always finds a way to come back and bite you in the rear!

That's not bad kharma...that's just a mistake. Ms. Jones probably isn't too happy with her bassinett either.
I had a horrible neighbor for years and I prayed for her almost every night, although it was hard. One morning I woke up and there was a moving van in her driveway and I haven't seen her since.
Not sure if my praying helped but it sure didn't hurt either!

I say keep wishing him bad karma and sue Amazon.
