The Karmic Challenge, Week 22: Rose has a lovely personality, apparently!

Oh yeah, alRIGHT!

*****************************************************************

THE CHALLENGE. A man (Captain Savage).  A woman (Rose). A quest. To earn enough karmic points by Christmas to be reincarnated as Something Nice.  On second thoughts, no – make that something PRETTY!

Four months to Christmas…and I’m nearly at the Holy Grail of 500 points (466!).  This mostly because Captain Savage has loaded me up with points I don’t deserve, so, well, maybe now is the time to tell him to take some off.  Did you know, CS, that I once said to a woman with 7 kids (ring any bells?) whose husband had just left her for another woman, ‘So, you actually mind, then? That’s strange, I only wish my husband would run off with another woman!‘  MINUS a million points (but it was when I lived on the dark side).  ‘Yes no doubt’, said she ‘but I WANTED mine.’ Well said.  Go and stick your head down a toilet, Rose.

Elderly Mr L is just back from hospital, where he went because he had a heart attack.  Apparently buoyed by thoughts of unexpected longevity, he told me today that I should probably cut my hair.

Why’s that?

(Slightly awkward pause, Mr L looks shifty) Oh well, I just thought..short hair might suit your features better.

But I LIKE my long hair!

Yes…well, you just do as you like, dearie.  You know…you’re a very NICE girl.

Ok, I can take a hint. Mr L’s trying to say he thinks I’m good but plain.  Later – perhaps to make up for the insult – he asks for a peck on the cheek.

Absolutely not!

(no not really, of course I did. If only just to give the guy another heart attack)

In other news, my paperwork for my application to become a Barnardos Kids Friend has finally been approved (yes, Interpol and the Afghan Police Department have both said I’m in the clear).  AND I pulled this woman’s trolley down a dead escalator.  Yes, I ran her over in the process and spilled all her groceries, bought with her last $50 from selling her own teeth in the marketplace, but whatever, I meant well! (no, that was a lie. Not all of it. Which bits, you can decide).

    It’s a set up. I think by giving you loads of points, Captain Savage boosted his own tally even higher.
    Well played, Captain. Well played.

  3. You get bonus points today for starting my day off with a good laugh, Rose!

  4. Hm. Everything was going well until you REVEALED (most likely not aware of doing so)
    “. . .pulled this woman’s trolley down a dead escalator. Yes, I ran her over in the process and spilled all her groceries, bought with her last $50 from selling her own teeth in the marketplace,”

    Shame, shame. Something doesn’t add up here. I KNOW YOU are not that person….right?

    • Well I never said I was a saint! I forgot to say I took her wallet too (shame it had nothing in it). No, not really. I did pull a little girl’s trolley down the escalator, which wasn’t moving – they’re designed so trolleys don’t slip on them but when you have to pull a trolley down a non-moving escalator, it’s very hard.  But..I was just joking. That said, as detailed in the opening paragraph, I am (not deliberately) awful sometimes.
