Good Karma Friday

Yesterday was a bit of an interesting one…

First, my wife had taken a temporary job, and worked about 15 hours before taking a new job. When her paycheck came in the mail, though, it just wasn’t right. It actually had a line on the pay stub that said “15 hours x $10 = $250″. And the check was for $250. With Christmas shopping approaching, that extra $100 would have helped out, but we decided it would be better to call them and let them know the error. So we did, and ended up depositing the paycheck and dropping off the check for the $100 difference yesterday. I like doing the right thing, but it kinda sucks when it costs $100 just to make good on their error!

Then, the wife and I were driving home after doing some shopping, and we saw a black dog playing by the side of a busy road. Worried that it was going to get hit by a car, we pulled over and tried to figure out what to do with the dog. She was a purebred black lab, and was clearly a pet, as she was clean and very used to humans. But she wasn’t wearing a collar or any other identifying information. We knocked on a few doors, but couldn’t find the owners. So we coaxed the dog into the car, and ended up driving out to animal control to make sure she was well taken care of. We’ll be driving out to that area tomorrow to look for signs that people have posted about a missing dog, just in case, but hopefully the owners will be smart enough to call the pound. We hope the owners are able to find the dog, but if not, I think the wife has decided we’d make a great home for her… We still haven’t had a family meeting with Guinness and Spanky about that one though!

They say that good karma comes back to you. And my football picks were 3-0 yesterday. I’m not sure these are related events, but hey, I’m not complaining :-)
