Witnessed on Walnut Street

It poured buckets of rain around the Philadelphia area yesterday afternoon, leaving tree branches in roadways and puddles gathered in every storm drain and curb cutout. Frank from iFlipflop witnessed a driver use one of the those puddles in a particularly nasty manner and then immediately receive the payback he deserved.

I was walking at the corner of 18th and Walnut when I hear a truck rev up. The driver veered right into the bus lane, which had a foot of standing water in it in front of the Barnes and Noble. It was like slow motion. A business guy. iPod. Walking right next to the gutter. A huge wave. A soaking.

The pickup driver purposely swerved to splash the guy with filthy Philly water. That sucked, but then came the sound of sweet, sweet karma. And with that sound came flashing lights. Police siren, baby, the sound of karma.

People talk about karma being something that most often comes later down the line, but there’s something really satisfying about it being instantaneous. To read the rest of the post, click here.
