Evidence that karma is real

Sometimes karma slaps your haters in the face before you do.

Karma works in mysterious ways. It’s common knowledge that karma doesn’t work according to a specific timeline, and that’s probably because there are so many people in line for a nice slap of karmic justice. Some people have to wait a bit longer before karma catches up to their villains, because the cosmos is busy preparing a full course karmic meal that requires more time to be cooked.

On the flipside, there are multiple instances wherein karma acted like instant ramen and was hot and ready to serve within 3 minutes or less. Here are some of those instances when karma could be seen serving justice almost instantly.

#1 Good Llama

“I used to be a zookeeper. This witch was making fun of our llama for looking ugly. The llama was a rescue who had corrective jaw surgery. The witch pointed and laughed at our llama. The llama spat in her mouth. I gave the llama a treat and told her that she was a good girl.” –MyNameIsNotRyn

What kind of bitter person do you need to be in order to make fun of a sweet llama’s appearance? Luckily, llama knew she was a bad guy and delivered instant karma. You go, llama!

“My stepdad is a driving instructor, I went to get my license pretty late (22), one day he was giving me a lesson and we were going over one of the possible courses that the test takes.

While we’re driving down a street in the suburbs a guy is tailgating the sh*t out of me… really gangster-looking guy, looked pretty much exactly like scumbag steve now that I think about it…sideways hat and all. Every time I come to a stop sign I do a full stop, obviously, and he throws his hands in the air and yells sh*t. It’s starting to stress me out, but my stepdad says ‘don’t worry about it, watch this.’

As we’re going down the street he says ‘OK, now in about 50 feet I want you to start slowing down a little bit and right when you are in front of that school zone, pull over to the right’. So I do it, right after I pull over, the guy who is right pissed at me now, takes off like a bullet. And about 5 seconds later a cop steps out from behind a tree and waves him over for going probably double the speed limit in a school zone.

We laughed. Hard.” – ZombiGrinder 

Let this be a lesson to hotheads who have zero patience when driving. Maybe there should be a mandatory temper test before they allow people to have driver’s licenses?

#3 Ricochet

“My friend Collin and I were playing Mario Kart once and I kart slammed him in the last corner and won. He pulls his arm back and punches me as hard as he can in the arm. The karma part: His hand bounced off my arm and made him hit himself in the eye with full force. Bout knocked himself unconscious.” – Reddit

Of all the variants that karma has, the direct ricochet one is our favorite. They think they’re about to hit you, but in reality, they’re about to hit themselves in the face.

#4 You can have her

“My ex-wife screwed around and got pregnant by some other guy. I took my son and moved out and he moved in with her. I stepped back, did nothing vindictive at all, and just let the two of them wreck each others’ lives. They were so thorough about it, I wound up feeling bad for them. It wasn’t quite instant but it was something that took care of itself. I never did anything to move it along. The best punishment for a man who would take your wife is to let him have her.” – Reddit 

Oh, how the tables have turned. Sometimes, you really just need to move on, focus on yourself and your loved ones, and the universe will be kind enough to let you watch karma engulf those who did you wrong. #Perfection

#5 Good things come to those who wait

“My dad told me this story. He was driving back from the shore when traffic got really bad. About a mile ahead, there was an accident that had brought traffic to a crawl. Shit happens, my dad decides to be patient about it. Others weren’t so patient. People began driving on the shoulder in order to get ahead of the traffic. This pisses my dad off. We all know how this goes. We do the right thing and are punished for it, whereas these assholes are skipping in front of traffic and will probably get away with it. He thought about following this stream of cars onto the shoulder, but he decided he’d do the right thing and wait.

As he got closer he saw two cops in a parking lot. One cop was directing all of the shoulder drivers into the parking lot, while the other wrote all of those drivers’ tickets. He describes it as one of the most satisfying things he’s ever seen.”-MrDudeManJones 

We can officially confirm that good thing come to those who wait…and abide by the proper traffic rules.

#6 Framing yourself

“Kid in middle school kept trying to steal my cellphone (it was a cheap flip phone, but he’d do it just to piss me off). Our school had a rule that you couldn’t have your phone out in class. Teacher left the classroom for a second to have a brief word with an administrator, jerk**s kid grabbed my phone. Teacher came back in a moment later and caught him red- handed with (my) phone out. She wouldn’t believe it wasn’t his phone. He got detention.” – Grey_Gryphon 

This bully just framed himself, and we are unable to stop laughing at this.

#7 Surf’s up

“I went to Hawaii with my mom and stepfather for vacation (I was 12), and we signed up for surfing lessons. The car ride there, my stepfather kept saying, ‘Now parolemodel, I just want to warn you of something. You might not be able to do this. You’re a girl, so your center of gravity is higher. I’m a boy, so my center of gravity is lower. Don’t be too upset when I’m standing on the board longer than you, it’s just science, okay? I’ll be better, but it’s okay because it’s not your fault.’

Screw him, I managed to ride a few low waves all the way to shore while he couldn’t even get on his feet. I mean, I was nothing fancy on those small waves because I had never done it before, but it was way better than him going to stand, then instantly falling every single time.

He wouldn’t talk to me on the car ride back whenever I tried to bring up what he said earlier.” – parolemodel

What can we say? Girl’s rule.

#8 Party pooper

“I’ve told this story before but will repeat it.

I was a substitute teacher for a short time while in college. I had this one student who kept intentionally farting. After telling him repeatedly to knock it off I finally lost my cool and said ‘next time you do that, I hope you poop yourself.’

Not 5 min later I see him lifting his butt with that stupid grin on his face and within seconds the grin turned to pure terror as he jumped up and said “I gotta use the bathroom” and waddled out of the room with a large, wet brown spot on the back of his jeans.” – Reddit

The smell of justice isn’t always fresh and floral, sometimes it’s fart-scented, and that’s okay.

#9 Barefoot shoe bandit

That time I had my SHOES stolen! I was 17. Went to a party where there were kids from two different high schools. When I went inside I took off my brand new Nike Air Mada shoes that I had just bought for $140. Hours later, when I went to leave, my shoes were gone. We had an idea of who took them (a guy from the other school) but didn’t have proof. I was so sad and so embarrassed. I had to drive home in my socks. Long story short … a week later, Monica (the girl who threw the party) shows up on my doorstep holding something behind her back … turns out she went to a party and saw the guy who stole my shoes – wearing them! When he took them off after a smoke break she snagged them! Now, standing in front of me she reveals my Nikes!!! She told me the best part was watching him look for them (just like I had) and then leave in his socks! – cruisefromottawa

You never know how bitter your own medicine is until you get a taste of it. Isn’t that right, Mr. shoe bandit?

Also, thank you, Monica, for being an instrument of karma. It was a boss move that deserves a standing ovation.

#10 Muddy mayhem

“It was my own karma.

I was in eighth grade. I was standing on a bench when I watched some girl fall over in the yard, started laughing and pointing and then went to lean back onto the fence that was behind the bench. Turns out it had broken off where I was standing and I fell straight through and into the mud.” – VariousHandSoaps

Why just fall over in the yard when you can go the extra mile to fall in a puddle of mud? Yeah, karma likes to play dirty too.

#11 Treat you better

“I was targeted for firing. It had nothing to do with my performance, everything to do with my manager’s manager that took a disliking to me. I walked the line of perfection for about a month until I found another job. I handed in my 2 weeks’ notice. That was victory number one. I stole about a half-dozen of their employees and got them hired into my new company, that was victory number 2 (yes redditors, sometimes being in a right-to-work state works for the little guy, non-compete clauses are almost completely unenforceable). I’d like to think that victory number 3 was the 30 or 40 employees they lost in the following year, but I cant claim direct responsibility for that. Thing is, when you have employees with high-demand skills like software engineering, you best treat them right.” – magicmuds 

Don’t you just love this 3-course karmic meal?

Employees should be treated right, no matter what specific work-related skills they possess. The type of company culture employers foster is essential to the happiness of your team and the success of your company. If employers can easily fire someone and replace them, it’s important to remember that employees who feel mistreated can also easily look for opportunities elsewhere. It’s all about mutual respect.

#12 The law of attraction

“When I was a kid, I was the youngest of all the kids on my block. The other kids (including my sister) would have fun tormenting me. They would try and exclude me from things on the basis of “you have to be X years old to do it.”

The worst of them was Marcus, who would always be a complete a**. One day Marcus and I, along with some of the other kids, went to a nearby school to ride around on our scooters (oh yeah). Marcus convinced me that to be “cool” I had to jump down a flight of 5 stairs. I succeeded, but broke my scooter in the process.

As the kids rode off, laughing at me for not being able to join them, Marcus’ front wheel caught in a crack in the concrete. He FLEW over the handlebars straight into a flagpole. I nearly died laughing. I broke my scooter; he broke his face.” – Reddit 

The law of attraction states that whatever you put out into the universe comes back to you. If you have positive thoughts and actions, you’ll receive good things as a result. Whereas, if you trick other people into breaking their scooters, you’ll break your face.

#13 Snowing karma

“My boyfriend has a big GMC, and one winter it was really snowy and a bunch of cars had gone into the ditch, as you do. Because he’s a nice guy, he was spending his day off pulling people out for free. At one point, while he was helping someone, some jerk FLEW by him, wailing on the horn and flipping him off out of the window. He got done pulling the car out and headed up the road in the direction that idiot had gone. That’s when he witnessed an incredible sight. A mile up the road, they found the jerk standing outside of his car, which was now plowed into a giant freaking tree. Boyfriend honked his horn, waved, and kept driving. Dude just hung his head like a scolded dog. Truly beautiful.” – Carryoncrow

Firstly, our hearts are warmed by how kind and helpful this girl’s boyfriend is. Secondly, we’re amazed by how he managed to maintain his composure when bullied by a random jerk. Thirdly, our souls are ignited by how savage karmic justice took care of said random jerk who bullied her boyfriend. Fourthly, we love how boyfriend gave the guy a taste of his own medicine. We’re here for it. He seems like a keeper, girl!

#14 Was it worth the Snapple?

Evidence that karma is real 15

So bear with me, this story is as instant as instant-karma can get.

I go to New York City about once a year to visit family. While there I always crave the “Grandma’s Sicilian” pizza, and the best slice in the city is served near my cousin’s place.

Well, it’s New York, and naturally the joint is crowded as hell. Across from the register you can grab drinks and paying for them basically comes down to the honor system as well as the size of your balls (the cashier can see you take a drink, but 90% of the time is occupied with a customer).

I’ve never really stolen before, but my cousin just nonchalantly took a drink and nobody said a word! I do love me some Peach Snapple so I got greedy and took two of them. I paid for the food and we were on our way out. I was on a (admittedly silly) adrenaline rush.

Did I mention my craving for the pizza was so large that I got an entire pizza instead of just one or two slices? Yep, an entire pie for myself.

So as we are walking back to the subway station, I trip on the curb and fall. I land on the pizza with my stomach, covering my clothes in sauce. Both Snapples shatter and the glass lodges itself in knuckes, palms and legs. The brand new $60 jeans I purchased the day before at Express got ripped by the glass and stained by my blood. Despite cleaning the wounds properly, the ones on my hand became infected that night.

Suffice to say I haven’t stolen since.” – alexisaacs

We kind of feel bad for this person, but stealing in any form is bad. At least, in this case, it seems like a lesson learned

Now, if only this type of karma would instantly happen to all thieves, then maybe crime rates dwindle.

#15 Respect the weekends

“I did that once. Worked for a company that moved out over the weekend, cuz they were locking us out that Monday.. Yep, no movers. Moved into a new office, and being an internet company, it was important The internet worked.. Ever try to get someone out on a weekend from the phone company, the provider for our T-1.

Got everything hooked up, and gosh, no internet. So he called me in on Sunday to talk to tech support. I’m a family man, and we had a very nice dinner planned. But no, work was more important to my boss. Told him ok, but he’d need to meet me at the office. I did the tech support call, and still no boss. Called him again, and told him I really needed him in the office.

I handed him my key, the list of passwords to the server, wrapped in my resignation letter. Told him I had a family, and being pulled away from Easter Sunday dinner to talk to tech support to only have them confirm what I’d told him Friday and Saturday was the last straw. Told him that I was sure he could find another java/php/linux admin on short notice, or he could figure it out himself.” –Llyran

People need to do things 100% in order to truly enjoy life. When you’re working, focus on your job. When you’re with your family, give them your undivided attention. A standing ovation for this man who stood up for his rights to enjoy the weekend with his family! #FamilyFirst

#16 Cheesy CATastrophe

“At a family dinner, my brother was close to a tray of cheeses and breads, making a mega bite with all his favorites in it. There was one type of cheese that is his absolute favorite, and he was keeping it for this finale bite. I ask him to bring me a piece of cheese with him. He quite rudely says no in a very loud, asshole way, in front of everyone. I smile and tell him “Ya know, I’m not even gonna get pissed because Karma’s gonna take you down.” As I finish my sentence, he accidentally drops the mega-bite, it splats on the floor and the cat comes, licks one lick on his favorite cheese, and carries on.” – Reddit

Karma is a shapeshifter. So, we’re not surprised that this greedy cheese eater met karmic justice in the form of a cat. Meow.

#17  Not dodged ball

“I was working at a summer camp this past summer, and all the male campers and staff were playing dodgeball while the girls cabins did their own ‘girl night’ kinda thing. It was Campers (and Jr. Staff) vs. Staff, and it was kinda nearing the end of the night, so the rules for the Staff were that if you got hit, you were done with no way of revival. I looked a cross the gym and saw that one of my fellow Staff was hit and laying on the ground with his hands behind his head. So naturally I grab a dodgeball, sneak around behind him keeping myself out of his field of view, and throw the ball at his groin. As I was laughing and running away, It bounced off his groin and, without hesitation, he brought his leg up and kicked the ball as hard as he could, and it hit me straight in the face with enough force to knock me off my feet.” – HoboLicker5000

If this guy never plays dodge ball again, we completely understand.

#18 Bunstoppable

“Next to my high school there was an elementary school. Some of the kids here were really fucked up. Around 8-10 years old, standing outside the school smoking and being rude little fucks to everyone that walked past them. We were shocked with their vocabulary of obscenities.

Anyway, one day I was walking by alone eating some buns. This one s**kid comes up to me with a smug as f*** look on his face and yells ‘GIVE ME A F****** BUN, YOU D***!’. The look on my face was something of shock of disbelief as I replied ‘No! F*** off!’ before I turned my back on the kid and started walking away. Big. Mistake.

I suddenly feel a slight push and weight added to my back. The kid was hanging on my back, pulling my hair and screaming “GIVE ME A F****** BUN, B****!”. I felt like I had been attacked by an angry leper gnome. In my panic, the only thought I had in my head was “F***! GET THIS SH** OFF ME”. And in some weird move worthy of WWE I spun around quickly while straightening my back and loosened my backpack which caused this little sh** to fly off me. He spun around in the air and landed face first on the concrete. He immediately started crying like the sh**-kid he was.

I proceeded to walked over to him, his bloody face stared up at me in fear and pain as I picked up my backpack, constantly staring hard in to his teary fear-filled eyes.

I turned my back on him again, picked up a new bun and enjoyed the fading sound of the tears of a child together with my sweet bun.” – ThrowawayAtWork

Children come in many variations. Many are cute, sweet, and playful; whereas others are little spawns of Satan.

#19 Out of principle

Evidence that karma is real 20

“I worked as a database administrator for a community center for one summer in university. Basically, I created a database for them to track who was donating to them and how much they were donating, and who was volunteering at the centre and for how many hours. Very simple work and despite being the youngest person on staff by about 25-30 years, I got along well with all of my co-workers except for my immediate boss who was a total b****.

The next spring, I was applying for jobs and e-mailed my old boss to ask for a letter of recommendation. Much to my surprise, she told me that she didn’t write recommendation letters ‘out of principle’. I was pretty pissed off about it because I was finding it very difficult to find a position and not being able to count on my most recent employer for a reference was a definite blemish on my resume.  

However, in spite of this, I managed to land a decent job. Lo and behold, my old boss e-mails me on day 1 of my new job, begging me to come in because she had somehow ignored all the warnings in the user documentation I wrote and moved some files around rendering it impossible for her to access the database. She asked if I would come in and I e-mailed her back and told her I already had a job and couldn’t do it ‘out of principle’, effectively rendering my entire summer at the centre a waste of time from their perspective.” – ItsOppositeDayHere

This one deserves to be framed and put in a museum. Don’t mess with people’s principles.

#20 Drenched in karma

“Back in the day, my dad went to college, and his particular dormitory had around 15 floors. There was this dude, we’ll call him Chester, who lived in the center apartment on the 14th floor, facing the north side. This meant that Chester’s window was located directly above the entrance to the dormitory.

Chester, being the a**hat he was, would come home from school, and wind down by throwing water balloons at the people walking into the building. Not even people he particularly hated or anything. Chester just did this to everyone for fun.

One day, he hits my dad. Big mistake.

My dad and his friend bring a garbage can up 15 flights of stairs, head to the bathroom, and fill it with water. They then head up to his friend’s dorm, which happens to be the center dorm on the 15th floor, right above Chester’s.

A couple of girls walk up the steps to the door. Chester leans out of his window prepared to throw the balloons. And is promptly hit with an entire garbage can of water.” – tropiusking  

We doubt that Chester ever even looked at a water balloon after that aquatic clapback.

“I was working in a pub in Liverpool and had just arrived, about 10 am, to start my shift. I knocked on the door and waited for someone to let me in. I became aware of some voices shouting and turned around to see two guys, shirts off, swaggering towards me talking in a language I didn’t understand. They came right up to me and what little English they did speak came out. They called me a “f****** w***” and a “f****** b****” etc.. nasty stuff and I was really quite scared. I was knocking on the door really hard at this point but after insulting me and laughing they walked off towards a busy road.

I watched they as they walked out into the traffic waving their arms at the cars to stop for them then giving the drivers the finger. Suddenly one of the cars stopped and four big guys got out. One of the nasty dudes ran off but the ‘big man’ got caught and shoved, hard, against the car a couple of times clearly hurting his head and elbow. Then one of the car guys made out that he was going to punch him, big time, drawing his fist far back. The little sh** just covered his face and screamed. They didn’t get hit but the car guys and a lot of passers by burst out laughing. They let him go and he ran away.

That felt good.” 

Not everyone who acts is tough is tough, and this duo just backed that point up even stronger now.

#22 Smug versus smart

Evidence that karma is real 23

“I interned in a class with this kid who always thought he was smarter than everyone else. He was pretty smart, but not by too much. Yet he always got paired with kids who weren’t as smart as him, so he would always be super smug when dealing with them.

During one parent-teacher conference, we found out exactly where he got it from. His parents thought he was the smartest kid in the school. They built him up as that and they got him thinking it, too. In this meeting, they even went off on the teacher, saying she ‘was bringing him down’ and that she ‘was terrible.’ The conference ended when the teacher left the room crying. But it didn’t take long for sweet revenge.

About a week later, there was an event where parents came to watch their children do math games with other students. Well, the teacher paired this smug little kid with the actual smartest kid in class. The kid got destroyed in the math games. His parents were so flustered, they left before it was all done and took him out of school for the rest of the day.” – The14thNoah

For those who care about their academics, school is both a haven for learning and a battleground of the brains. However, there is a huge difference between being smart and smug. Thank you, karma, for emphasizing that point for those who may not know it yet. Spoiler: Ultimately, smart always wins over smug.

“A shy, meek, new kid on the block I used to pick on beat the sh** out of me… I was 10 and he was 12…We lived on same street and he would walk past my house on the way home from school. After several days of teasing him, he paused and stared into my eyes. I walked up towards the driveway and got in his face…at which point he unleashed the craziest barrage of punches and kickboxing combinations that I simply did not expect. I took a few to my eye, and bloodied my face. Needless to say, he made me cry and run away like a b****.

This was one of the most transformational experiences of my life. It taught me self-control, humility, and absolute respect for the hidden strengths of people around me.” –neospyro

Ooh, he just got schooled, but at least it’s a lesson that changed him for the better.

“When i was in middle school I was sitting at lunch with my normal lunch group. There wasn’t enough room for this one guy at the table so he sat at the table next to us by himself. One of our friends felt bad so he left our table and sat next to him. The kid who was originally sitting by himself moved to our table, took the other guys old spot and leaving the other guy completely alone. We all moved to the other table and left him alone again.” – HulkSmashingHoes

This karmic incident is smooth like butter. Backstabbers sit alone and eat their lunch in silence.

“I was in daycare as a child. I had very long hair that my dad always put into a ponytail. There was girl that would pull my ponytail all the time.

We were doing a musical chairs thing at the end of the day while parents were picking us up. The girl was behind me and kept yanking my ponytail, I kept telling her to stop. The teacher ‘didn’t see anything so I can’t do anything about it’.

There were a bunch of parents waiting for us to finish our game, my mom included and she kept doing it and the teacher ‘didn’t see it’ so I turned around and punched her as hard as I could, she stumbled into the “cubbies” where we kept our coats. The teacher tried to chastise me and my mom was like ‘nope. I didn’t see anything’.

Didn’t even get in trouble.” – vanessow

This. This is how you raise a good girl; sweet but punchy. If the teacher won’t do her job to maintain order in the classroom, then go ahead and handle it yourself.

Props to her mom for being quick-witted and 100% savage. Also, props to her dad for being on ponytail duty!

I heard a kid yell “wtf?! someone threw a shoe at my head”. We laughed and walked towards the exit (about 50 feet away from where I originally threw the shoe). As we get to the door I get hit on the head by the same shoe. Instant karma, I wasn’t even mad lol.” – mikenothing

If the shoe fits, throw it at people’s heads, right?

“Not my story but my mom’s. Apparently, when she was a young lass, there was a girl at school who was always a major witch to her. Hated my mom for whatever reason and always made fun of her. Fast forward to my mom as a college-aged woman now dating a guitarist from Bob Marley’s band, out at a bar with him getting a drink. Dude goes to the bathroom and said bitch from back in the day comes up to my mom and says, ‘OMG, did you see who is here?!’ At that moment, dude comes and puts his arm around my mom and says ‘hey babe, what’s happening?’ She said the look on that girl’s face was priceless.” – echo_lo

Ooh, does that girl need some ice packs? Because her ego got burned. Also, did someone say boyfriend flex?

#28 Explosive karma

“This is from my younger years. A friend of mine had a cousin visiting around Victoria day in Canada (aka firecracker day). When I went to visit him, I was told he was in the backyard. I go back there and he and his cousin are setting off firecrackers. They have a big bowl of loose firecrackers. I ask if I can set a couple off as well and both my friend and his cousin start tossing lit firecrackers at me while laughing.

I figure that they are both acting like greedy a**holes, so I decided to leave. Just as I’m about to leave a spark gets into the bowl. The entire bowl of firecrackers ignite leaving only a few unexploded. This lasted about 10 or 15 seconds.

The stunned look on my friend and cousin’s face was pure “karma is a b****”. I’m laughing at them. I’m sure they planned a whole afternoon of setting them off.” – pembroke529

Beware to those who share their fireworks. Oh, well, at least they had a blast, right?

#29 Prom solo

“Last spring I didn’t get a date to the junior prom. I wasn’t thrilled but I figured I’d go stag. I found the perfect dress and was actually really excited. Then my group of friends said I couldn’t come with them. Why?

I didn’t have a date and it would ‘ruin the pictures’ if I stood by myself. And since I wasn’t going to be in the pictures, they said, wouldn’t it just be so awkward for me to get ready with them and be at Claudia’s (the ringleader)house beforehand? And of course, wouldn’t I just be so uncomfortable being the only one in the limo with no boyfriend? And what would I do afterward anyways? I mean everyone knows what happens at the parties after prom. So I didn’t go at all.

Guess who’s limo never showed up?” – Reddit 

A lot of us always get asked to prom, but others who don’t shouldn’t be afraid of going to the event solo. After all, it’s a high school party, not a couple’s retreat, so a date isn’t a prerequisite. If you have a date, cool! If you don’t, still cool! Go for the fun, the memories, and photos!

We wish this girl found a new set of (real) friends and rocks at prom during her senior year.  If you still don’t have a date by then, just be prom queen; then you’ll have a king.

“I’m from San Diego and during the summer, you have to a claim bonfire pits on the beach really in the morning if you want it for that night. So my friends and I got to the beach at 8am and stayed there so we can get a bonfire going into the night. Just before sundown, this one couple asked if they could share the bonfire with us and since our group wasn’t too big, we decided to share it with them. However, that couple proceeded to bring a group of like 15 others and they literally surrounded the pit and pushed us out. We were pissed but we were so tired from being at the beach all day so we decided to head out. Little did we know what that night had an extreme high tide warning and when we moved all of our stuff over the wall that divided the beachwalk with the beach, a huge wave came in and washed out that whole group surrounded by our bonfire. The wave flipped over their table of food, took a handful of sandals back into the ocean, and destroyed all their stuff. The best part was this one girl was trying to jump the wall to save herself but she didnt jump high enough and ended up falling right back into the waters. Karma’s a b****.” – 5shunned

When the elements work in your favor, you just know that you’re some kind of descendant of Poseidon or something.
