It's A Magic Cafe

I went back to the same restaurant that I ate at last week--you know with the really nice wet lady. It must have some sort of nice dust in the air because another amazing even happened.

The place has wi-fi, so I brought my lap top and review books. I stayed quite awhile this time. Mid-afternoon, a man came in and went from table to table to ask if someone owned a certain type of car. He explained that his wife lightly scraped the bumper while pulling out. No one in my vicinity claimed the car.

He then went to the next building. A few minutes later he emerged with someone, who looked at their bumper and from body language and a wave of the hand dismissed the stranger and whatever he said his wife had done to the bumper.

The woman next to me look up suddenly and said, "Hey my car was in that vicinity, I wonder if that wrecker (insert some raw language here) did something to my car. She got up and went to look. First of all, the car in question was two spots over and on the wrong side of the scraped bumper--so unless the driver was doing wheelies, she couldn't have hit the other car. The woman went out and checked and then came back in saying that nothing had happened to her car. She grumbled that it would have just been her luck if she got hit and that people like that shouldn't be allowed on the road.

I think some of the nice dust missed her and that people like her shouldn't be allowed to speak or have opinions.

  • Negative people will never notice the nice dust, they're too busy being negative. Pity.

  • oh she sounds REAL pleasant.

    that restuarant sounds like it has some good karma though. even though not so great things happen there, it seems like there's good, happy endings from the events that take place in the vacinity. minus that bitch with the attitude problem.

  • Maybe there's something in the food there and that woman hadn't gotten her order yet?

  • Of course there are sour apples. During a bad snowstorm, my car slid off the road and bumped into another car. We exchanged info. He called to make sure I was alright. And the insurance co said he didn't want to claim damage since it was light. Angels are everywhere!

  • That is disappointing. Here is a guy who actually DOES take the time and effort to walk around to find someone he bumped lightly ... and someone else has to poison the area's karma by being that way. Ugh.

  • Maybe she needs to learn about karma, and watch My Name is Earl.

  • I'm going to try and focus on how nice it was that someone was going around searching for the car they bumped, rather than the rude person. And I agree with brookem, this place does sound like it has great karma!

  • How cool that the person was actually owning up to having hit someone's car ... what a nice thing to do ... unfortunately, most people would just drive off. What a cow that woman was ... she deserves to have her car hit !!
    Take care, Meow
