A Little Bit of Payback

I believe in karma. I believe what goes around comes around. I believe that when you do something wrong (you know, like leave a cart in parking lot instead of returning it to the cart thing and it starts rolling and slams into someone's car), something equally frustrating will happen to you. I have been driving around with an expired inspection sticker since February. I don't have an excuse, really it was just laziness. I didn't relish the idea of sitting in the tiny, airless waiting room with two restless little girls. Part of it also was that we knew we were going to try to trade it in soon, and I wanted to save that lousy $35 bucks. Well. I got away with it until the day we went to the car lot (last Saturday). We pulled out of our garage, and a cop was driving down our street. So we were given a $147 fine, because he didn't buy our excuse. I think he even said "I don't buy it". Irony? Karma? I had high hopes that when I took the paperwork showing we had it inspected quickly, the court would dismiss the fine. Well. Today Corey took the car to be inspected, and now it will not even pass inspection.

I knew I should have put that cart away.........

  2. Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry. What does that mean about your all's traveling? Does the car need to get fixed in order to pass inspection? I'm so sorry!!
