I am SO Ashamed

I am a very petty, evil person way down deep inside. Really. I am.

That fact came VERY clear to me yesterday. Start with the fact that every 6 weeks I spend 2 and a half hours at the beauty salon. For cryin' out loud....that's ridiculous. But I do it. Every 6 weeks. In fact, I book my appointments a year at a time, and then schedule my WORK around 'em. That's just wrong....

THEN, I spend way too much money on stuff like make-up. Holy Crap! And it doesn't stop at the make-up, all those face creams, magic "make me pretty" potions. Stupid. Just stupid.

But it doesn't stop at vanity issues. Ohhhhh nooooo. I really mean it when I say I am petty. And evil.

Yesterday I heard something. A person that I'm not terribly fond of had a bad thing happen. They lost their job. Hey! I've been "let go" before, it SUCKS. And this person has a family to support. Did I feel bad? Nope. I actually giggled with glee. Giggled I tell you. The words "Karma" and "you reap what you sow" actually came from my mouth.

That's just wrong. And I know it.

Now, since I'm being honest, we're goin' in 110%. I DO believe in What Goes Around, Comes Around. I really do. And, while I will not NORMALLY seek revenge if someone does something wrong, I will not shy away if anyone causes problems for someone I care about. But I don't skulk in the dark. Oh hell no. I will walk up and confront you eye to eye, in the bright light of day.

But this? Doesn't fall into that category. Nope. It was just someone who I don't care for had something bad happen. And I did the happy dance.

It's wrong. I know it. I want to tell you it won't happen again, but THEN I'd be lying. And I may be petty, evil and vain but I'm NOT a liar........

Listen, you're a pretty woman, a damn pretty woman. Don't worry about spending two hours in the beauty parlor. big deal. it keeps you looking good. it's justified. I have spoken. :)

As for doing the naked happy dance about an asshole losing his or her job, done it myself. It's fine.

take care,

You and I have both worked in hell. We've seen what Satan's Spawn looks like and had to be a lot closer to it than we wanted to. So hearing about karmic justice being reaped upon someone who deserved it, the reaction is 1000% human and perfectly normal.

Now if you did the happy dance, made a little fake tombstone and did said dance on dirt by said tombstone, then we'd need to have a little talk.

But taking a moment to recognize karmic reparations, saying thank you for the event happening and moving on (even silently in the back of your mind hoping that they find a way to provide for their family with minimal hardship) is all normal and does not make you a bad person in the least little bit.

Wishing death for someone? We'd need to have a chat. Keep this in mind, what you wish for someone else (good or bad) karmically comes back to you 7 fold. So I never wish anything worse than hurting the little piggy toe on a persons foot. Because that's the kind of pain that just lasts for a long time and it's good enough for me.

(And besides, I always tell people there is a reason why that building glows at sunset and sunrise. It's the epicenter of hell. Duh!) ;)
