This is a question Karma

Sue Denham writes, "I once slipped out of work two hours early without the boss noticing. In my hurry to make the most of this petty victory, I knocked myself out on the car door and spent the rest of the day semi-conscious, bowking rich brown vomit over my one and only suit."

Have you been visited by the forces of Karma, or watched it happen to other people?

Thanks to Pooflake for the suggestion

I was driving home from work one day years ago
on the motorway.

I was happily going along at 70, when the car in front was going 60. No problem, I pulled around to overtake, and the guy speeded up, so i got in behind him again.

He slowed down.

I went to overtake, and he sped up.

He played this stupid game 3 or 4 times, much to the obvious delight of his 3 passengers.

I was driving a clapped out old metro at the time with a top speed of 80 on a good day, and so even if I wanted to go stupid-fast to overtake him I couldn't (not that i generally condone excessive speed).

Roadworks were just up ahead. Driving the road every day, I knew EXACTLY where the speed cameras were.

"Right", i thought, "i'll get you you bugger".

I pulled out and planted my foot down, and he kept up same as the last few times. Then, at the last possible moment, i slammed on my brakes and went through the speed camera at exactly 50mph. He flew through at about 80 and got flashed.

He was, from then on, mr. 45, and i cruised past him at a leisurely 50. I gave him a smile and a wave as i did so and felt great for about a week afterwards.
