Karma?

May 30, 2014

Yesterday I was in the grocery line and the guy ahead of me was talking to the cashier saying that on Sunday he was working at a house and found a wallet and in it was several thousand dollars. He said that he turned the wallet into the homeowner. The cashier asked Did you get a reward”? The guy was like no instant karma though.

He is a handyman or what he told the cashier at this multimillion dollar house.

There are so many people here and really in the world I guess that subscribe to the whole karma thing. I think it is a joke. Do ”good” and ”good” will happen to you. Hardly. Why not just try and do what is right instead of worrying if the karma gods are out to get you or when they are going to pay you back? Besides, who decides what is ”good” anyway?

To me its just people’s justification for their lives. Oh, it was karma because of this or that.

I was diagnosed with dystonia when I was 13 but I wasn’t classified as “disabled” until decades later.

You see, in order to get on disability you have to get tested to prove you are disabled in governmental setup places (that were dilapidated to say the least) and once they say okay you are disabled they then give you all kinds of stipulations (can’t have more than x money in your banking account, etc, etc but they let you have a car…thanks).

Looking back, I don’t know if it is worth it. You get free medicine but generic medicine is $4 so thanks? and free er visits but I don’t want to waste tax dollars just because I can. I could also qualify for food stamps – which is called something that doesn’t make it sound so “needy” but I again don’t. They allow you a free eye exam every two years and a pair of glasses.

The last glasses I got are the cheapest of the cheap. Like the paint started falling off in months and within a year my lenses were all scratched. I know this because I bought a pair of legitimate glasses not long ago and they pointed out the flaws.

The “insurance” does not pay for my neurologist so I have to pay out of pocket for my yearly visit to get my prescriptions refilled.

The worst thing about being on disability is that the government has their prying eyes on everything you claim (banking account information, where you live and with whom, what your monthly bills are) and they do a follow up phone call every year to make sure everything is the same but they do monthly computerized checks on your account balance.

Some people are glad to be on disability. I am not. Maybe if you were given enough money to live on without some outside help but no. Instead the government spends millions of dollars on sports lawsuits, trying to find a missing airplane in the middle of the ocean and tons of other things.

What I Don’t Like.

The following is a list of things I don’t like but are subject to change.

Homer sports fans. Ill go for the opposing team just bc of them.

Politicians/politics. If I wasn’t surrounded by it my interest would be even less. They only care about you in an election year.

People who are obsessed with having a disability. You have a disability big deal. Make it work instead of giving up and complaining about it all the time.

People who get pregnant by a boyfriend and can’t afford to live on their own (they seem to scrape by each month) much less afford a kid.

Panhandlers.

Stupid tattoos. Band lyrics, quotes, really all. Unless it has a real meaning it is a waste of money.

People who can’t manage their money. Spend it all right? Wrong.

Shelter dog posts on social media. I know if they are not going to get adopted they’ll be killed. No need to go overboard.

Money professional athletes make. Some can’t even do easy math or spelling but yet they have million dollar contracts?

Doctors. Charge too much and try and sell you on “snake oil”

Pot Heads. Granted I don’t associate with many but their excuse is always “I smoke too much to remember” Yay for legalization.

List may be updated.
