Karma & Slow Moving Lines

by Stewart Bitkoff

Age Group: Adult



Today, I saw the Law of Karma operating right in front of me. Fortunately, I did not have to wait another lifetime to work my issue.

While paying for medical prescriptions at the local pharmacy, I kept hitting incorrect display prompts on the credit card monitor. This display monitor asks multiple questions and requires signatures at various points. My errors necessitated that I start over several times; rushing and fumbling about I could sense the growing line behind me. Clearly I was slowing-up the works and customers had to wait longer than they expected.

Suddenly, I had a flash back to when I stood in this same line, behind an elderly fellow who was having even more problems than I navigating the credit system. The pharmacy aid was trying to assist but because of poor eyesight progress was very, very slow. At the time, my nerves were shot and I mumbled to myself, ‘I wish he would just get on with it so we all could get our prescriptions and get out of here.’

So today, I was the person slowing-up the works and remembered ‘this old fellow’ was doing the best he could; in situations like this, we all must be a little kinder to each other. Feelings of annoyance, resentment and impatience, while natural waiting in a slow moving line, often do not benefit the person experiencing these feelings and are better off diffused by a silent prayer, switching attention or a kind word inquiring if a person needs assistance.

Grateful to the Universe for helping me work past slow moving lines; yet to be worked on in any useful way is my clumsiness and fear of computers and electronics. Really, I don’t know how many lifetimes it will take for me to get this right?
