I live a life that has near instant karma.
This is both a nice thing and a poor thing.
It’s nice that I don’t have a bunch of accountability hanging over my head for dumb or bad choices. But man, I make a mistake or something and I get the swift reaction. Like this past fall, I kept meaning to call for the Heating plus A/C repair. Normally, I like to have the Heating plus A/C specialist come out and do the heating repair in September. Turned out that this fall was particularally intense and I let the Heating plus A/C repair slip through the cracks. And when I did finally remember again after Thanksgiving, I rationalized that the two of us could take a year without Heating plus A/C repair on the gas furnace. Well, hello karma once again. I was sound asleep while in 1 of the coldest mornings of the year. It was just after midnight when I was awakened by a poor thud in the basement. I knew, entirely instinctively, that it was the gas furnace. By the time I got to the basement, I found the furnace shut down and hissing almost because it was so hot. Like I said, it was bitter, bitter frigid and no space gas furnace was going to keep the condo warm. I had no choice however to call for emergency Heating plus A/C service. The Heating plus A/C repairman on call was entirely great actually. He had a super attitude for someone who had been called out on such a wickedly frigid night. Turns out, the complication with the furnace would have been caught with normal Heating plus A/C repair. But it ended up costing myself and others hundreds of dollars that night. This is what I mean by instant karma.
