I was out this catching up with an old friend over coffee, when this Wagged up to the nines teenager walked in to the coffee shop and openly sneered at our middle-aged selves.


The caah. Doesn't she know we were 18ish once? wink

Well, hold your stomachs now, she nipped passed us to the loo, and when she walked back towards her table, I noticed that one of the ties on the back of her top had obviously dangled somewhere while she was abluting, and it was not canary yellow anymore, oh no it wasn't.

So AIBU to be feeling a teeny bit happy that retribution was passed?

That is karma indeed.

I never go for revenge when someone fvks me over. It makes me feel like a bad person so I end up feeling worse. And I think the universe will get them in the end. In my experience, it usually does.

I thought it was puke?

Yep, been there. Hehehehe.

If you are genuinely interested in karma, read up on it. If you were genuinely interested you wouldn't take such glee in someone else's misfortune no matter how negative or nasty they were.

Karma is very different from just desserts or revenge.

It's a beautiful thing, and not about embitterment.

Pet hate of mine.

well that ^ killed the thread.

So was it poo?!

TheAtomicBroomstick Fri 15-Jul-11 13:30:30

I thought Karma was the idea that what goes around comes around, good or bad. Or at least that's how people have come use the word.

Guess that's wrong......

Well, Poo or Puke? Which one?

TheAtomicBroomstick Fri 15-Jul-11 13:35:26

Well, I was sort of right. It's just the idea that all actions have consequences, goodness leads to good stuff happening to you, badness leads to bad stuff happening.

So it's the right usage of part of it, yes?

I feel sorry for the poor girl. Teenagers are always twattish.

hairfullofsnakes Fri 15-Jul-11 13:39:38

I hate to say it but hairylights is right...

Although I am not able to be that good a lot of the time so I would take Great glee in loudly telling her she had shit on her top grin

You should have told her!

hairylights Fri 15-Jul-11 13:41:54

No itsabout the natural order of what is right but there is no vengefuk element to it.

Didn't mean to kill the thread at all - karma is a religious concept often misunderstood and that's a bit of a pet hate of mine.

karma karma karma karma karma chameleon!
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and greeeeeeeen.

Hairy - I get what you are saying (on a serious note) I really do and I have read books like the disapearance of the universe, seat of the soul And conversations with god ( all of which sound like they would be of interest to you if u haven't read them) and the messages make sense but I struggle to adopt these at times especially when I see shit things happen to children/good people/vulnerable people etc

It's hard - and if ms prissy teenager has shit on her top she deserves it! grin

DoMeDon Fri 15-Jul-11 14:02:33

YABU - teenagers all think they are supreme beings - they are wrong and they learn it the hard way. No lessons learned by shitting on her own top - just humiliation.

What better occasion for uttering the words "How now brown cow" in one's best elocution teacher impression.

Acandlelitshadow Fri 15-Jul-11 14:13:24

Retribution clearly not the only thing that was passed grin

thederkinsdame Fri 15-Jul-11 14:36:01

Did you adapt the line from Fried Green Tomatoes 'We're older but we know how to wipe without smearing' grin

hairylights Fri 15-Jul-11 14:39:49

Hairfull yes it's a really difficult thing to get your head around. I struggle too - I'll look those books up.

grin at the shitty top comment

stripeywoollenhat Fri 15-Jul-11 14:43:36

am i the only one who thought you meant she got blood on her top? how the hell would you get shit on your clothes (if you were older than 3, i mean - dd perfectly adept at getting poo in all sorts of places)?

iwanttoseethezoo Fri 15-Jul-11 14:45:46

YANBU - let's hope she walked round in it all day without realising. Yes I am horrible!

TheAtomicBroomstick Fri 15-Jul-11 14:48:41

My 2 year old DD has got poo in places I didn't think poo could go. She has smeared it on the window. She has smeared it on the settee. She smeared it on our brand knew dining room table chairs the very same evening we got it. She even smeared poo between two CD's and squashed them together.

Back to the point. Did you not notice the that the teenager was "Wagged up to the nines", which I think means she was blathered? I've seen someone piss themselves when they've been drunk. And gotten puke all over them. And various other things. I can believe it.

eurochick Fri 15-Jul-11 14:51:08

I thought wagged up to the nines meant she was dressed tartily like a wag?

And I assumed poo!

stripeywoollenhat Fri 15-Jul-11 14:52:29

oh, i thought this meant 'done up like a footballer's wife'. obviously if she was drunk, then all bets are off regarding the smearing of bodily fluids...
