I was sitting at my desk in my office when at approximately 10 am a young well-dressed guy walked into the office. He made himself known to me, “Hi… excuse me.”
What follows next is a transcript of my “tweets” (after the fact):
# ericitzkowitz: Well-dressed guy came into the office looking quite depressed. Said he was going to Phoenix & saw he forgot his wallet in El Centro contd…
# ericitzkowitz: That is.. he was in El Centro and realized he left his wallet at home in Encinitas. DOH! Was out of gas and asked if I could help. contd…less than 5 seconds ago from web
# ericitzkowitz: I gave him $5 because he said nobody would help him. Offered his cell # and everything. I said, “Don’t worry about it.” contd…less than 5 seconds ago from web
# ericitzkowitz: We’ll see if he was telling the truth & does come back with $5. Maybe I’m a sucker? Maybe I believe in Karma? If he was lying… sad! #karma less than 5 seconds ago from web
UPDATE – 08/26/09: No big surprise, the guy (let’s call him Earl) didn’t come back. I firmly believe Karma will come full circle for both of us.
