I ascribe to the epithet 'no good deed goes unpunished'. You may think this is rather a negative outlook, but once again it has been proven. Yesterday morning I saved our 85 year old neighbour just under €700, how does not matter. Later my wife dropped , on our bedroom floor, the pendant from an emerald necklace I bought for her as a wedding present. We have stripped the room bare and still have not found it.
Karma exists all right, but it's exactly the opposite of what the hippies would have you believe, and by an order of magnitude.
