Instant karma

Today has been full of an unusual amount of ups and downs for me.
Since i woke up i've had one great thing happen to me, immediately followed by a bad one.
Very strange.

The worst example was when i was at Matas buying Vaseline for the shop.
The girl at the counter gave me back the wrong change, too much actually, but i didn't notice until i was outside.
I probably should have taken it back, but it was freezing, i was in a hurry and i thought "hey, i'm broke, who am i to complain about free moneys!?"
About 3-4 minutes later i got hit by a car.
Karma sure as hell works fast sometimes.
It was quite the shock, i tell you.
I mean, i've been nudged by a car before, and even hit by a dead lamb on Nørrebrogade, but never run over like that.
I somehow managed to kind of stay on my bike and only hurt my ass, but still, shocked as hell.
So, there i was, about to have a complete shit fit.
I was already screaming and cursing at the driver (who was a young guy with a pit bull in the front seat, gulp!) while walking towards him, when he came out of the car and did the most un-Copenhagenite thing ever: he took full responsibility for the accident and apologized profusely.
Dude even offered me his phone number, but my bike was somehow ok and health care is free, so i said we were cool.

Anyway, strange fucking day.

My desk arrived and it's magnificent!

  1. Det er faktisk næsten chokerende når man møder den slags mennesker i Kbh. Lidt trist egentligt.

    Har heldigvis kun mødt medlidende og hjælpende mennesker når jeg en sjælden gang har styrtet på cyklen.

    Skrivebordet ser fantastisk ud, omend det så en smule tungt ud da i skulle bære det ned i butikken.
    Mange gange tillykke med den nye shop, glæder mig til at se den når den er blevet helt klar!
    Og tak for en fin session i dag.

  10. Troels, enig, men København er sgu generelt lidt trist ind i mellem.
    Ses om et par uger!

    Fie, bloggen er helt klar på forår, men jeg synes ikke rigtig virkeligheden følger med...

    Corey/Helle, tak!

    Alice, a definite yay, in the end!

    Petite Exploratrice /Sam, thanks!

    Martin, jeg passer jo fint på, men når folk beslutter sig for at trykke på speederen i stedet for bremsen er der jo ikke meget lille mig kan gøre.

    Sarah, thanks, i'm glad too. Although i could have used an excuse to buy a new bike!!

  11. I hope you are okay and aren't hurting tomorrow because it could give you a delayed effect.

    I'm jealous of "health care is free" part as well as your fancy desk.
