Karma?

Why I don’t believe in karma:

One would think that because I turned in the $100 bill I found on Saturday that I had a little karma coming to me. So today, one of my co-workers asked if I had a DVD that they could borrow to test the DVD functionality of a laptop. I happened to have the Scrubs Season 1, Disc 3 in my iBook, so I popped it out and let them use it for their test.

Well, they forgot to get it out of the drive of the machine they were testing, and the owner of the machine has gone home. I had 3 more episodes which I was looking forward to watching this season. Now I have to wait until at least tomorrow.

Doesn’t sound like karma to me, but then again, I don’t believe in karma.
