Wonder if anyone else has this type of experience:
There are a few things that keep on happening in my everyday life that are kind of funny (in a way) and hard to explain. Each event taken on its own is perfectly normal, but the strange thing is, it keeps on happening over and over, for years, to a point where now it's starting to make me laugh. My wife is equally befuddled, so I have some confirmation that this isn't just all in my mind.
One thing is: When I fuel my car, very often the gas pump receipt printer is not working, so I get a message that says: "See attendant for receipt." Then, if I want a receipt, I have to go inside the station. My wife says this has NEVER happened to her when she gets gas. Her pump always prints a receipt. Now when I pump the gas she's with me, she's come to expect that the receipt printer will not be working. Weird.
The funny thing is, she never keeps her receipt, but I always used to keep my receipt. At first, I'd go inside each time to get one from the attendant. Now I don't even bother.
There are a few other little things like that, too, that keep on happening again and again. Things that don't seem to happen to other people with any kind of regularity. They seem to be some kind of idiosyncracy in my life.
Anyone else have this type of experience? Thoughts? Kamma? Coincidence? Something else?
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.
