I couldn't resist sharing this anecdote from my friend Ariel. It seems chocha karma does indeed exist:
So I was at the dollar tree getting notebooks and crayons, standing with my mom in the checkout. Up walks this 12-year old girl, wearing no pants. When I say no pants, I mean no pants. No skirt, just a shirt, and her underwear. She's chilling there, looking at sunglasses, and I cant help but notice, she's not wearing pants.
Let me reminds you, it's not a dress. It's a track t-shirt and underwear.
No pants. No shorts. A shirt. Not a dress.
So I think to myself "Hmmm...If I forgot to wear pants, wouldn't I want someone to tell me? Yes I would." So I say to this 12-year-old pantsless girl, "Hey, you aren't wearing pants." And she shrugs. She shrugs! What the heck? My mom got really embarrassed and dragged me from the store. When we got outside I was laughing and she was lecturing me: "You don't just go up to people and tell them they don't have pants on, it's rude!" I don't think it's rude. She didn't have pants on and she didn't care.
So then, at family home evening, we do the lesson, and I give the closing prayer. I sit down, and people disperse and someone leans forward from behind and says "Ummm, your shorts have a hole..." I look a little concerned and she says "No, I mean, a HOLE." Then someone else comes over and says, "Yeah, your whole butt is pretty much showing." I asked how bad it was and they described my underwear.
I looked later, and I could see underwear and butt. It was a huge tear, but it was still hilarious to me. And at least I had pants on in the first place.
