When someone slaps me on my left cheek
I turn the other one!
It isn’t that I am a masochist
But it is because
Jesus would do that!
Ok, I admit, I am lying!
I wouldn’t turn the other cheek
I slap back! Slap slap slap
I don’t do that either!
When I am slapped
Which never happened before in the literal way of what the word means
I stand silent
trying to figure out why did the other person attack me like this
To sum it all,
what I really do
is taking preventive measures for not letting it to happen again
I have been trying to teach myself to react when someone offends me for ages,
but what happened yesterday really stunt me
and made me realize that I am a hopeless case
After several months of struggling with the municipality for the vocational license for licky licious (my and my friend’s ice cream shop)
and after having to deal with the shitty attitude of the person at the head of the vocational department in their zahran office
Doing his best to bring up every possible way to torture me
and throwing me from an office to another
and asking me to go home and come back another day over and over again for no reason aside of his laziness
When I finally got the license,
and to my SURPRISE
I HEARD my self THANKING HIM!
YES, THANKING HIM?!!
How the hell I let those words leave my mouth!
I realized it right away, along with the shock/angry look on my friend’s face!
Why do you thank him?!
For the torture he gave us for months?!
or for the job he had to do and made sure to raise our blood pressure in each step?!
And then again, when we left
and while cursing him over and over again
I wished that ONE day
Need would drive him to my door
begging me for help
Where I would torture him back
and make him drink from his own medicine
“And I know that you definatly would help him” my friend said
and sadly, I think that he is right
I don’t slap back
Because fucking Jesus Christ would just do the same
(this line is taken from Grey’s anatomy)
Actually I guess that it is just my nature,
to let it go
But a friend of mine wouldn’t do that
The other day,
She sent a text message to her former boss
whom she hates
Congratulating her for her husband’s loss in the parliament elections!
She wrote “Congratulations for your LOSS. You deserve it!”
What goes around comes around, right?
Did that make my friend happy?
I guess it did
But it wouldn’t make me happy if I ever to act this way.
Speaking of karma,
On new year’s eve
I bought a lottery ticket with a friend of mine
Me and him were buying some pizza’s for the night
and the person at cash calculated the amount we have to pay wrongly
He missed one pizza
After paying, we realized his mistake, and pointed it out to him
so that to give him the amount he missed
I looked at my friend and said:
You know what? I feel good about this
because we did the right thing, we are going to win the lottery
He laughed and said:
Are you talking about the karma thing
I nodded and smiled
After 2 days
We won 150 JDs 🙂
Not bad for a new year’s start
Don’t under estimate the power of karma 🙂
Do good and you’ll get good
