Instant Karma Is Real (And It's Spectacular)

Via reddit u/Eeli100.

This girl thought she was sooooo sneaky. Instant karma = instant pay-back!

Karma is the Hindu and Buddhist belief that your past actions come back to influence your future in unexpected ways. It's the universe's way of getting even, of paying you back for your behavior (both good and bad) here on earth. Basically, when it comes to karma, what goes around, comes around.

Most of the time when people discuss the notion of karma they think of this retribution as being far off on the time horizon. For example, when a jilted lover thinks,"Some day my jackhole ex will get karmic payback for being such a jerk to me!" they're counting on karma to even the score. Yet often, making stupid decisions has instantaneous consequences, like when an angry driver in the grip of road rage immediately gets pulled over by the police. These cases of "instant karma" can be downright hilarious, and oh-so-satisfying!

Check out twenty times when we didn't have to wait around for karma to come back on the jerks of the world! Karma can be both swift and funny as heck.

Slow Your Roll, Ya' Braggart

Via reddit u/Insaniac99.

Living in the northeast, you see this sort of thing all the time on the highways. Whenever the roads are slick with ice or snow, there's always some genius who goes flying past you in the fast lane because he's got more horsepower than brains! Here's a helpful tip: Trucks with 4-wheel drive can help get you out of the ditch, but they don't do much to stop you from going into the ditch. You're welcome.

Another bad driver getting what he deserves! Don't you hate it when you're stuck in traffic and somebody decides to skip the line by driving in the breakdown lane? THIS is why you shouldn't do that.
