Everyone knows that karma can be a real bitch.Sometimes it really is true that "what goes around, comes around," and the universe works in unexpected ways. If you don't believe in the auras or vibes or any of the fun magical powers of transferring "energy," it probably is just a good rule to live by anyway that the more good you do for the world, the more good the world will do for you.While sometimes it takes years to get that sweet revenge, moments of instant karma are always worth noting. When a recent Reddit user asked the question, "What's the best case of instant karma you've ever witnessed?" the internet churned out some solid gold stories of payback.1. A big win for, "thegreatestshowman1." A person tried to shove past me in the hallway. Immediately after, a door opened up into the hallway and slammed him in the face. 2. The best revenge is on a litterbug, "Piano9717." I was at a touristy place at the top of a big cliff. People were hanging around at the top, just enjoying the view, and this one guy was eating a sandwich while staring at his phone. After he was done, he couldn't be bothered to find a trash can so he went to throw the sandwich wrappings off the cliff, but he got his hands confused and hurled his phone off the cliff instead. 3. I feel guilty laughing at this, "to_the_tenth_power." Was working at a trampoline park which had two different dodge ball areas. One for kids 12 and under, another for 13 and up. Annoying little shit of a kid kept trying to sneak into the 13 and up game, running around, breaking rules, and basically being a pain. We couldn't really do much about it. Eventually I just let him sneak on and not a moment later he got smacked beautifully in the face with a rubber ball. Actually sent him flying back a couple feet. He wasn't so keen to play after that. 4. Impatience isn't a virtue, "Hash43." Pedestrian crossing the street. Everyone stops for him except one guy in the last lane blasts his horn and blows through the intersection nearly running the pedestrian over. There was an unmarked police car right behind him that immediately pulled him over. 5. Don't cut the line, "duckmunch." During my lunch break at work a few years ago, I ran over to this convenience store that sold a few deli items and also had a lunch of the day special. That day it was spaghetti. I walked into the store and headed to the back to the coolers to grab a drink and I start walking over to the line that was formed to grab a lunch. This older woman, who was talking to a woman not even close to the line, saw me walking and literally strong armed me to get in front of me. She full on shoulder checked me. The cashier saw it, looked at me and I just shook my head as if to not call her out on it. She gets two orders of spaghetti. They come in a Styrofoam compartment tray. She walked towards the door and someone comes in that she knows so she's saying hi. I pay for my food and I'm out the door. As, I'm walking to my truck, I hear a loud "OOOOOOOFFFFFFFFFFF". I turn around and this woman is planked on the ground with spaghetti and meat sauce all over her white shirt. 6. Praise be bouncers, "Beezy8d5." I just walked into a crowded bar with my friend back when we were in our early 20’s. Make our way around the entrance handrails and bam this dude smashes his shoulder into mine knocking me back. Thinking it was just an accident caused by a crowded bar I start to recover and this dude throws his shoulder into me again. Before I can even begin to react to the second more aggressive hit, this monstrosity of a bouncer watching the whole things go down, picks the guy up and literally throws him out the exit doors. It all happened in a matter of 5 seconds. I don’t think any other person in that bar, nor my friend, even saw it go down. 7. Damn this is dark, "rimologie." When I was still in architecture school, a professor gave his class an exercice. One student came up with a project with a lot of ramps for disabled people. The professor started laughing and asked her to remove them because no one will use them. A month After or so, he lost his leg. 8. Don't mess with "aleksavlaisavljevic." So it's winter and everything is covered in snow. I'm going home from a friends place and I see my shoe lace is untied. I grab a nearby tree so I can maintain my balance while I put the shoe lace inside my shoe and immediately after grabbing a tree a shit ton of snow falls on my head. A woman that was walking behind me starts laughing at my and right after she walks by me she slipped on the ice and fell down. I had a good laugh of revenge. 9. This sounds like it's from a movie, "sk8erguyssk8er." I was walking to the store with a friend when we were 13. We heard someone yelling at us and turned around to see some kid about 50 feet away. He was yelling and calling us F*****s and every other homophobic word you know at that age. As we started to walk over to confront him he did a 180 and started running while turning. Well he spun around and ran face first into a tree and hit it hard enough that the kid fell to the ground from the impact. He laid there for a few seconds because he was dazed. We couldn't stop laughing and hopefully that was enough embarrassment for him to learn a lesson. 10. This is absolute gold, "AForEffort13." A random guy was a total douche to me at a cafe. A few days later, I interviewed him for a job. 11. Wow I really feel your pain here, "tuesday_guy." Two of my friends and I were playing monopoly sometime around freshman year of high school. One of my friends owned all the railroads, meaning any player who landed on a railroad would pay him 200. The entire game felt like I was just moving my token from railroad to railroad, paying my friend each time, having no opportunity to buy properties, and getting super frustrated (in reality it was probably only two or three times). On my next roll, I quickly calculate which space I was going to land on as I start to move my token, and lo and behold, I was going to land on another fucking railroad. I gracefully slide (cheat) passed the railroad and plop my piece on the next space, Chance. Chance card read something as follows: "Move token to nearest railroad. Pay owner twice the amount." I lost my shit. 12. Really sums it all up, "SteroidSandwich." In highschool a guy cut in front of me and said "out of my way!" He then proceeded to trip on the stairs. 13. The goat knew what was up, "Spluff5." I was at a petting zoo with my cousin and there was this angry lookin guy who started yelling at him for being an annoying little kid. The moment he turned away from us he came face to face with a goat that immediately tore a huge rip in his shirt with its teeth. 14. Don't sit on rocks around "MisterSparkle77." I used to work at a very popular theme park. I walked by a woman sitting on a rather large rock that wasn't meant for sitting. I asked her to come down, and she said, "uh I'm an adult I think I'll be okay" whatever. I walked away and turned around to close a gate, and saw her rearrange herself and knock her soda over and spill everywhere. 15. Um, this is magical, "Petercross1." I was at highschool. Me and my friends went out to eat and we all got a Chocolat croissant. We used to play "would you rather" at the time, so I asked one of my friends: "would you rather have a little kid get shot in the head, or your croissant fall to the ground?" "I'd rather have a kid get shot, of course!", was his answer. Immediately, his croissant falls from his hands for no apparent reason. 16. The worst punishment for a teen girl, "loafenwerk." Happened a couple of years ago at Chipotle. I was walking to the entrance to get a burrito and two teen girls decided they had to beat me to the line so they ran and pushed by me to get inside while laughing. Well, one of them dropped their iPhone while doing this and her screen cracked. 17. Don't bully, "deeyenda." I have colitis. Occasionally I have to shit, immediately. A few months ago I went on a trip to Mexico with several friends. One was constantly making jokes to me about how I better watch out, better know exactly where the bathrooms are, etc. He shit his pants twice on the trip. None of the rest of us had any issues. 18. Always listen to the teacher, "Chekobelle." My teacher told me multiple times to stop swinging on my chair then then I fell backwards and accidentally pulled my table. As a result it fell on top of me. 19. Ah, yes, "uvaspina1." Not quite instant, but my wife left me for another dude. She ended up with genital herpes in short order. Wah-wah 20. Damn, "WolffGamez." I punched someone so hard that I heavily bruised my own hand. Also let's take a moment to recognize this cool teaching moment for violence against women:21. "Kappagooey" said: That story in the Bible when some guys wife gets raped then him and his friends avenge his wife by raping the rapists wife and family And then "forevergallifralone" owned him or her with: I don’t really see how that’s Karma. That’s more like... commodifying women to the point that they’re used for revenge. If I broke your desk and you broke mine, that’s Karma. But you wouldn’t get back at me for killing your dog by killing mine, because you recognize the inherent need for empathy and individuality between all living creatures, and to view dogs or women as objects to be owned and destroyed by men you ignore ethical values placed upon those creatures. May you all have good karma heading your way!
