Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon

Meme Credit -
Short and sweet today...well as short as I can make it as I tend to be wordy.

So yesterday an itsy bitsy spider came down from the ceiling right onto the keyboard on my computer at work. He was the size of a gnat, just a little guy.

I took a piece of paper and scooped him up and carried him into the big area outside my office where there is no furniture nothing, just a big empty room and I blew him into the rest of his life to safety. No need to kill him, he did me no wrong, he wasn't a Brown Recluse Spider or a Black Widow, so why not let him live right?

My co-worker saw and said "Oh, you're one of those people"! 

I told him, "Hey, I need all the good Karma I can get and he did me no harm so why would I hurt him"? A big conversation ensued between him an another co-worker about how they always kill spiders and blah, blah, blah.

Today I had to deal with one of my VIP clients. A client that has no time for dilly-dallying, this is what he wants and he wants it yesterday. You know the type, the world is his oyster and I'm simply a little grain of sand in his oyster that turns it into a perfect pearl for him!

Anyway, he wanted something backdated to 2 months ago and he had his attorney on conference call with me to explain it all to me. I was pretty sure it could not be done, but told him I would do my best.

I was in the process of talking to a supervisor trying to "do my best" when a co-worker told me the attorney was on the other line and saying "never mind". So I put the supervisor on hold, took the call from the attorney who told me she got it taken care of with the bank and thank you so much. 

I came back to the supervisor I had on hold and explained the situation and how now we didn't have to worry about it and she said "See, you must have done something nice cause Karma smiled upon you"! Wow! So I told her my spider story and we had a good laugh and then we both hung up and went on to live the rest of our lives.

But yeah, saving little creatures who do us no harm saved me from a big creature today! Gotta love Karma (and itsy bitsy spiders)!

Do some good in the world today!


  1. Lovely post! and I like your great Humour which is well all over it.
    Your story reminds me of a little lizzard that comes and goes into my house through the back window, in summer. Even if you want to harm it (which I don't), it's impossible to do so as it ia an olympic runner and climber.Its speed of moving is incredible. Luckily, I read somewhere that it brings blessings in the house, so I don't even try to do something about it, especially that it keeps out of sight (moves in the darkness) and doesn't do me any harm.

    1. Thank you DUTA! I appreciate your kind words. It's funny that you mention that about the lizard, that it brings blessings to the house. Several years ago I was in Hawaii with my children and as we were getting ready for bed, we noticed a little lizard on the wall. My kids freaked out and we called the front desk to come and get it out. They sent a man and he saw it and said, "Oh, he no hurt you, he good luck!" Then he turned around and left. We didn't sleep much that night, but apparently they are good luck!

  2. I liked this story. I think it is the little acts of kindness that always come back to us.

    1. Thank you Nikki! That's what I figure as well. And why kill something that didn't bother you? I don't even step on ants!

  3. Wait... You're simply a little grain of sand in his oyster?

  4. Worded a little weird now that I read it. The oyster doesn't turn into the pearl, the pearl is formed in the oyster. I know that it's an actual parasite and not the proverbial grain of sand that creates the pearl, but no way did I want to be a parasite!

  5. This is good to read, and so often little acts of kindness are often reciprocated in some way.

    Why kill something that doesn't bother you ...

    All the best Jan

    1. Thank you Jan! Appreciate the comment and I totally agree with you :)

  6. What a great story! I'm glad you're "one of those people." :)
