Apparently The Going Rate For Karma is $40

I am writing this story at the desk of my brand new job. During college I worked at a steak house as a waiter and I waited on a couple clearly on a first date. They looked a little older than me (I was 20 at the time) Let me say that she was WAY to good looking for him. Anyways, they were super polite and racked up a $150.00 tab. I drop the check then go to the well to grab some other drinks. The guy from my table taps me on the shoulder and looks panicked. He says in a very frantic voice, “Sir, I am on a first date and I am $40 short…is there anything I can do, wash dishes, take out trash, I am so sorry I just got so nervous I really like her and I just….I am so sorry.” For some reason I felt for him, and I spotted the $40. I figured I was buying Karma points and that money was gone forever. They left and I thought nothing of it. 2 days later the guy comes back with $80 bucks and thanks me explicitly. He explained how he really is into this girl and they are going out again and he owes me. I thank him and wish him well.

Fast forward 3 years, I graduate and have an interview for a job. I get into the office and low and behold my young lovebird is the one doing the interview. On his desk is a picture of him in a tux and the girl he was on a date with in a wedding dress (THEY GOT MARRIED!) He instantly recognizes me and I was hired on the spot! Still blows my mind!
