Karma is a beotch.

Ok, I had another post scheduled for today, but I have moved it to tomorrow because I know you want to hear of my morning brush with Karma.


Every morning I stop at the SAME gas station to get a 32 ounce diet coke, in a styrofoam cup. 

It's my thing, let it go. 

So I am waiting in line, in front of a Santa Clause look alike, who's chatting me up about how he thinks I have a red headed twin runnin' around in Florida… when I think to myself "PLL, WHAT the heck do you think is taking so long?"

Dumb and Dumber behind the counter are apparently having some issues with the register, and everything has shut down. I continue to wait TWENTY more minutes as people with actual cash pass me and drop dollars on the counter before leaving with their morning snacks.

I have no cash. 
What is this cash? 
Where do I get some? 

I rely on my debit card for EVERYTHING, which clearly, needs to be assessed. 

Even Santa leaves the line and pays for his slim jim and natty light, swear, but I guess I didn't remind him enough of his Floridian friend for him to spring a good deed and offer to pay for my 69 cent diet cocktail. 

Bogus.

So I am getting pissed at this point, I know it isn't their fault but common, PLL gots places to be.  

I decide to high tail it outta there, sans paying for my merchandise. I buy things from them EVERY morning, it's fine if this one tiny drink is on the house right? I'll just get them back tomorrow morning. That was my rational anyway. 

So I walk out, with my contraband cocktail in hand, feeling quite jailbird-esque. 

I kid you not, the second I climb into jeepie, some damn invisible Christmas elf hits my hand causing the diet coke to spill in ENTIRETY all over me, and my car. The entire thing. There were almost tears.

Fabulous. No diet coke. And there is ice in my pants.

And this my friends, is WHY I need a reality show. Tune in next time, for another episode of Blondetourage. That's definitely what I'd call it.

Moral of the story? 

Karma is a beotch people. Don't steal diet coke.

hahahahaha you told this story EXACTLY how I would have. I'm going downstairs to get a diet coke from the cafeteria now. Thank you. I think I'll pay for it.

Caitlin said...

Oh my gosh, you crack me up! "and there is ice in my pants" it may be the lack of sleep and the craziness of finals week, but this definitely made me giggle. Hate that karma wasn't kind to you this morning though!

Lia Joy @ life is aMAYESing said...

Oh my goodness. I'm laughing out loud. I've definitely spilled an entire drink on myself in the car.

And I would totally watch your reality show! :)

AllyM said...

ahaha...as horrible as that is, its pretty funny. Annoying, but funny. I've had a 32oz spilled all over me, not a way to start a morning. FOR sure.

Bri said...

I read your tweet this morning and was wondering what happened! OMG what a mess!

Kate said...

OOooh no! I hope you were able to clean up and get the ice out from down yonder! Were you able to get your diet coke fix after the escapade?

Karma is a beotch! She got me a few weeks ago when I went to litter out my car window, just a tiny gum wrapper. As I went to roll my window up, it WOULDNT GO! So I frantically floored it home, cranked up the heat since it was 30 degrees out & thankfully my Dad fixed! Moral of this story... never ever again will I litter! Hope your day got better & ends fabulously!

Brianna Tucker said...

wow hillarious but I would have done the same thing.

shay said...

Jessi said...

Awww! I feel like Karma would've gotten me for that one too...I must not have enough of it stashed up for a measly Diet Coke!

K said...

Oy I hate when that happens. You poor thing! I have instant karma too. I was about to say something super clever (and a little mean) to a friend of mine and began to giggle about how funny I was going to be... with a mouth full of beer... that I immediately began to choke on. I thought I was dying. Why can't we get away with something at least ONCE!

Annabelle said...

I sure hope that your day got better! Ya might want to keep some change in the console of Jeepie for emergencies! I'm a Jeep girl myself! ;)

Ashley said...

I have been reading your blog for a while now and your stories are soooo funny!! Thanks for the good laugh. I am too a fellow drinker of Diet Coke in a styrofoam cup :)

Aimee L said...

God must have you under His thumb...that crap happens to me alllll the time! Like if I say some snarky comment about someone, 30 seconds later I'll trip and stub my toe or something, seriously! He never lets me stray out of line, haha!! You must have the same "luck" as me!!

Definitely made me laugh...good thing 'cause Raven's post had me in tears!!

Merinda said...

♥ Marcy ♥ said...

I am trying not to laugh sweetie but this is FUNNY! LOL The image of Trashy Santa and "ice in yo pants" makes me giggle! Hope your day got better!!!

Palm Trees, Pearls, and Everything Southern said...

Wow! Great read, I have definitely had days like those!

Brekke said...

Oh my word, what a tragedy!! I'm so sorry but I had to laugh because it sounds like something that would SO happen to me.

One of my co-workers and I would carpool and we ALWAYS stopped for a large Diet Coke at the Gate station on the way into work. Sometimes we'd get snacks too, but soon we realized that if we didn't get snacks they always gave us the Diet Cokes for free. Like seriously, we got cokes for free for years!! One employee said they didn't make that much $$ off the fountain drinks, lol.

Sooooo, don't feel bad about the whole "Grand Theft" thing, lol!!

Katie said...

That is too funny. Hope your pants dried or you were able to go home and change.

I had a rough morning earlier this week like this.

Sincerely Sara Cate said...

Wow what a story. Santa could have been a little more giving!!! Lesson learned.

Rebecca said...

poor thing! You racked up a lot of bad karma so some super good karma is probably just around the corner =]

Carolina Charm said...

Santa bought a Natty light first thing in the morning. Awesome.

Petchie said...

Wowww this is the funniest thing ever!! I'm sorry that happened though, but its very funny. And I never carry cash either, I really mean to start, but I jut never remember.

Alana Christine said...

Ugh! That sucks!! Hope you got it all cleaned up! I would have given up on that line a LONG time before you did.
And I never have cash either--I use my debit card for everything. ha ha

Savannah said...

What a story! I totally believe in karma, but wish it wouldn't have attacked you today. Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!!!

lori said...

hahah aw you poor thing! not a good start to your day!

Jess said...

HILARIOUS!!! I mean hopefully you are at the point where you can laugh about it now. ;) I for sure originally thought you were going to say you got arrested for stealing a 69 cent beverage. Thank the lawd that was not the case!

Cori H. said...

It's horrible, but karma will get ya every time! Sorry your morning had to start out like that! Hoping tomorrow morning will be much better!

Mrs. WASP said...

Oh my word! What an awful way to start your day!

Southern Bombshell said...

Your story reminded me of this recent human interest story I read, after reading it I'm almost hesitant to go near the free samples! Couple eats before paying

Lauren said...

hahahaha! Oh no! Serves you right! :)

Happy Friday Eve!

{andthisiswhatshesaid} said...

This so makes me laugh, but it totally sucks!

TheSocialKnight said...

Funny. I personally hate cash and my debit card is my lifeline, too. Debit cards are the future! LOL

Glitterista said...

Oh no! The upside is you definitely made me laugh this morning! ;)

Amber said...

PLL, just last week I had a very similar experience with karma and Diet Coke! - only it involved 2 cans exploding in the freezer at work - in which my boss found = NOT GOOD! Bless your heart!

Crystaljk78 said...

Bahaha! Sorry you got spilled on - that's totally lame. But I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who never has cash. Who has time to go to the ATM for cripes sake?
P.S. Very cool that you drive a Jeep. Me too :) I swear I will never have a regular old car again.

Delaney said...

hahahahahahahaha you just made my whole day :) Sorry you had to get diet coke all over you. I would have cried. haha and thats why I can laugh ;)

Carolyn said...

OH MY GOSH! I am completely not laughing that this happened... except I am. :) "I have ice in my pants" BAHAHAHAHA! I can't believe Santa didn't offer to pay the 69 cents. Dumb.

Marion said...

LOL! That is hilarious! I totally would have done the same thing. Although I'd probably be wearing white.

Love it. You just made me laugh out loud.
XO - Marion

Erika said...

Lmao...I too HEART the chemically delicious diet coke. And rely on my debit card for everything. Cash might be convenient but if flys if it's on hand, I am not accountable with cash whatsoever.
