    Windfalls...


    So about three years ago I had this roommate, former high school friend, just got out of the marines, moved in with me for about 6 months. Lost his job, couldn't pay the bills, and eventually disappeared owing me 2 months in back rent and utilities. I was mildly annoyed, but what are you gonna do, he didn't have the money and I wasn't about to track him down over $1200 in back rent.

    Anyway, fast forward 3 years to today, I get a letter in the mail, along with a bank check for $1200 Letter says sorry it took so long, think this is how much I owe you, let me know if it's not.

    Anyway, just thought I would share my little story, seems there is still some sense of personal responsibility in the world.

    Karma ... I believe that "you"(people) should do the right thing..if not, karma comes to get you.. I can honestly say I live that way..I ALWAYS try to do the right thing..its actually pretty easy..

    When I was in highschool(10 yrs ago) I "borrowed" $700 from a girl, to get my car fixed and what not..we ended up getting into an argument, and I never paid her..I moved away that year, and never saw her again...fast forward to about 6 months ago, I saw an old mutual friend we had. this was my opportunity to make things right..I ended up getting her number and giving her money back about 3 months ago(that was a difficult phone call to make) ..When I went to see her she told me I made her have a difficult time trusting people..I felt like an asshole.. We have talked a dozen or so times in the past few months.. I feel much better knowing I did the right thing..(even if it took 10 years)..

    I went to Pub 99 with my wife..About 15 minutes into the meal, a stranger walked up to me and asked if I was Evan Cooke, I said yes... he handed me my wallet with about $600 cash in it untouched..he found it in the parking lot.. I believe I got my wallet returned because I try to do the right thing..

    Yup.
    It's sadly ironic that it's due to the fact that I was fucked and am now no longer being fucked that I'm fucked.

    I would take some of that money and take said person out to dinner and drinks on you. Anybody with that much pride and integrity is worth getting reaquainted with.
