How fast can Karma oscillate?

So when I thought Karma was beginning to turn in my favour, I crash my car.

Fark. Friend's wife asks if I can take her for a spin, 'cause it's a sports car, and the back spins out on a corner I took too fast. Result is that I went up on a pavement on which the thoughtful house owner had mounted those little wooden bollards. Hitting them took out what at this stage appears to at least be my aircon and some damage to the bumper.

With my final presentation to my client tomorrow and Monday and a big interview this week, I thought things were turning my way.

All that I can do to avoid feeling the victim of a karmic downturn here is to say, "Karma, smarma."

But the thought of the wasted money on the cost of the damage is just killing me. Aaaargh!

Sounds like Karama's giving you bit of a spanking.

I know what that's like.

As they say: "Karma is a bitch."

But...sometimes, she makes me her bitch.

Sorry to hear about the car, but glad to know you're OK.

It is the question said...

Thanks for the messages of support (except old ChewTheCud - ;).

Got the quote back and it was even worse than I thought, but hey, not a lot I can do.

I bet you wish you were more careful in taking that corner.
If the old adage of bad things coming in 3's is true, then you are in for a bit of a rough ride.
The question is what could you have down to incur Karma's wrath?
