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

When I was at university
the small girls in my hall asked me to come with them to a kickboxing class cos it was in a dodgy part of town. I agreed (being a 6'2" man easily led by women) and discovered it was a really quite fun class, but after having only been 3 times (i.e. still a total n00b) we had an exercise for pairs where there weren't enough newbies, so I (being the largest) got assigned to an intermediate (i.e. not shit) bloke.

The deal was, I held the pads and he practised a specific kick. We would later swap. I heard the teacher tell him "stick to xx kick, he doesn't know the others yet so it wouldn't be safe." He started doing the kicks, nice and hard and very accurately, I was impressed.

He got bored after 2 minutes of this exercise and tried a different kick, without warning me, and without me having any idea how to block it. A reflexive shift of the pad I was holding wasn't fast enough to stop him kicking me in the face and chipping one of my teeth.

He blamed me for leaving the pad too low. We were practising a kick that should have landed at around elbow height, so I reckon he was quite far off. I decided that as the newbie the fault must be mine and made no more of it, despite being quite rattled by the experience.

The following week the course trainer accidentally broke the other guy's nose with the same kick.
