Instant Karma’s gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head

… so wrote – and sang – John Lennon.

Came back to me just 10 minutes go as I was driving in to the office garage. As I entered had to slam on my brakes to avoid a car being driven rather too fast for a garage. As he accelerated forward to get to the exit ticket booth – I pulled into a space – and as I got out, heard a loud crunch of metal on metal.

I looked up to see the car had driven right into the car following me in.

I walked by – and about 10 people were already collected to observe the proceedings. Open and shut case – the innocent car was all banged up on the passenger side – and sitting as if ready to enter the lot. The offending car had to back out of the crash to reposition itself.

I watched the driver get out – he was angry – but almost at the driver he hit – not at himself. Asking – why was he driving in the place I wanted my car to be.

What I do hope is that the driver – wherever he was rushing to – realized that  “instant karma has indeed got him” – and that next time he drives anywhere, he might take into account other people and thus get there more quickly – at less cost – financially and mentally.
