I have always wondered if there is any truth to the statement, “What goes around comes around.”
A few years ago, I asked someone who is older and wiser than myself if this really happens in life. She said, “Yes it does.”
Then I asked, “If someone has damaged me, will I see it come around?” She said, “You may, or you may not. But if you do see it, it will be so bad for the person who has hurt you, that it will even hurt you to see it.” Well, half of what she said was true, at least in the actual series of events I am about to describe.
A few years ago, I worked a part-time job in a store. The store manager was a close friend of mine, and an OK guy.
I didn’t need the money. I just wanted to do something to get me out of the house for a few days each week. I was in a specific department in the store. It was a fairly pleasant job. I worked by myself, and didn’t have anyone bothering me, except for a disgruntled department manager. For some strange reason, this guy did not like me. Other that the fact that he was a first-class horses rear end, there was no reason for his dislike for me. As a result, he made my job very difficult by treating me like a dog, for no reason.
All he liked to do was talk about himself, and brag about how much he loved his antique Chevy Pick-up, how much he loved his cabin on the lake, and what a great golfer he was.
Proof of “What Goes Around Comes Around”
One day, he just decided that he wanted to get rid of me once and for all, so he manipulated a set-up involving one of the store’s customers that would make me look bad. This set up made it appear that he caught me in a lie, when in fact, he was the one doing the lying. Anyway, on a day when my friend was off, he came up to me and told me to “GO HOME” for no particular reason. On the way home, I called my friend, the store manager, from my smart phone. He had already heard about it because in a retail store, there are busy bodies who can’t seem to mind their own business. He asked me, “What do you want to do?” My response was, “I have no problem with it. I’m tired of his BS. I am better than that.”
Over the next year, I was informed about the events that were happening in the infamous department manager’s life, since his manipulation of me. Everything he owned was in his wife’s name. It came to my attention that he was caught cheating on his wife. BAD MISTAKE! His wife sold his Pick-up Truck, his golf clubs and his cabin on the lake. It has since come to my attention that his house was on the market, and she was making plans to move to another State.
The man has been stripped of every ounce of his man-hood. I’m surprised she has not cut off his balls and sold them on Ebay.
Going back to the answer to my question from the older and wiser person, “You may, or you may not. But if you do see it, it will be so bad for the person who has hurt you, that it will even hurt you to see it”, she was right about one of the things she said.
- YES I did see it come around, but
- NO it did not hurt me to see it.
There is truth to the statement, “What Goes Around Comes Around.”
Be very careful not to hurt someone for no particular reason, because it will come back to Bite You in the Ass !
