Yes it does! Karma does to exist. I’m living proof. Here’s the scoop. I left a little message, went something like this:
Thanks for playing my favorite American Tunes on Thanksgiving. I had been sad and was missing my family back home, when I hopped in the car and heard your Thanksgiving special. You guys really made me feel good and we all sang outloud and had our spirits lifted thanks to you. Bla bla bla.
And it was sincere and heartfelt AND OK, so I did want to hear my voice on the radio, too. Who doesn’t? When I did voice overs back in the states I’d practically crash my car everytime my ad was on. I love it. It’s fun. But seriously, I called them just to give them some positive feedback. I did think it was very sweet of them to consider Americans living over here. I had never heard a station back home do anything like that all day on the air. So I called, and left a message. Not expecting anything back. No need to leave a phone number or address, right? Wrong! Now here’s Karma at work folks.
I thought that good deed was over. Done. What I experienced was a satisfying tingle as I hung up the phone. That’s it. UNTIL, the next morning I woke up, walked Haven up to school, came home and saw that I had a message. Ooh. Somebody called pretty early. Gee I wonder what this is for…..it was my friend, who thankfully listens to Riviera Radio 24/7. Her message stated that they had not only played my thanks on the air… Yahoooo. (But secretly I was upset that I missed it.) but guess what? They have a joke line where each week the best joke wins. Get this….they thought that my little message of thanks was better than any of their jokes! And I won! So, I actually won a game I wasn’t even playing! How cool is that? I had to call them to give them my address because…oh yeah….I won NINETY Euros to spend at the Gallery Lafayette at the Cap 3000 mall in Nice. What fun!!!! All because I decided to take 5 minutes out of my day to call a company that well deserved a big fat thank you.
Who are you going to thank today? Thanksgiving should just be a yearly reminder for us to be thankful everyday of our lives. Can we start a Karma day? Maybe it would be celebrated by doing a good deed. You could get off work for the day just to do a good deed. People would want to a deed better than their neighbor’s deed. Kid’s would compete in school for best deed idea. Towns would want to out deed the other towns. This could really catch on and imagine the positive consequences! They’re infinite.
Hum, now should I call Riviera Radio to thank them for thanking me for thanking them for Thanksgiving? I could use another 90….. JUST KIDDING!!!!! Ha ha ha (but I could.)
Happy Karma Day!!
