To think I was being punished by the universe for eating a Gregg's sausage roll?

As I walked from the station to my place of work, a newly opened Gregg's caught my eye. I fought the internal beast but lost and I trundled off to buy a hot, delicious greasy unhealthy calorific sausage roll.

Some 20 metres from the shop, I fell over (usually occurrence thanks to my disability) and found myself face first on the concrete. I could not get up and I had to be hauled to my feet and on to a bench by 2 very kind strangers. I didn't cry till they left. I cried because I was embarrassed and because I was hurt and because I had a massive hole in my new work trousers but mostly I cried because my sausage roll was lying on the pavement! I wiped my tears and eventually, felt ok enough to limp off to work. Obviously, I was grieving for my sausage roll and cast a sad look behind me and what I saw was quite shocking! I saw THREE fucking pigeons fighting over MY sausage roll.

So, AIBU to think the universe was punishing me for going in Gregg's? I know just the title of this thread will have some of you hoiking your judgey pants up but truth be told, I had no desire to even enter Gregg's until I became an MN regular.

Thanks for the warning OP, I've never had a Greggs sausage roll, I won't risk trying one!
I'm too busy eating their cheese & onion pasties.

I've just checked it would be about a 90 mile round trip to nearest one to us, so I doubt I'll ever try one, unless i remember too find one next time I am in a city.

Am giggling like an idiot over Belgian Bums - esp with them apparently being the dogs gonads <childish>

I'm forever falling over due to one of my disabilities too & however practised you get at it it never stops being grim, does it? sad I get terribly embarrassed & also have the bonus fun of having to persuade people they REALLY don't need to call me an ambulance... Hope that you heal up well&quickly; that your trousers are easily fixable (ideally not by you); & that you don't suffer from the Remembered Cringe of the fall.

However, I don't think it was The Universe. I suspect the JudgeyPants (either the pants or the owners or both) are working with crack teams of pigeons, seagulls & squirrels in a Dastardly Supervillainy way. Oh yes, you know it makes sense...
