– “One day you have to pay the bill”, he said…
When do we say this? When we see someone acting badly, right?
- Let karma do its job!
- Give me some time to prepare my revenge!
To whom do we say this?
- To the person. Like a threat? “One day, you’ll pay the bill, Billy!”.
- To a friend, or a random ear, designing the other.
Are these consolations for the weaks? Or a more standing up orientally wise : Being like water, in the flow of vain things?
“He did wrong, he’ll pay one day”. Probably. Or not.
Watching the world from a calm place.
After all, as we all know, shit happens, therefore shit happens to the mean people too.
When you see someone who’s been a mean moron having an accident, sorry you’re not sorry. Bim! Good to him!
But sometimes the retribution is really awful. Much too awful!
The French word for “retribution” is “châtiment”, which sounds very frightening. Like a mean, horrible and rare punishment. Brrr!…
Is it the same for “retribution”?
You stupid hateful manager gets liver cancer, or his son dies in an accident, oh waow and ouch! This is not cool. But there’s one or two percents of smile in one’s head, right? One should not, though. Oh OK everybody’s innocent : it was, in fact, a complete random event. There’s not justice. Nobody pays the bill.
Ouch though. Bill’s payed and very payed.
Or more probably : the mean donkey finishes by hurting himself, right?
Schopenhauer said “All stupidity is overwhelmed by self-disgust”. Maybe, and even probably, this structure can be applied to meanness. The “being an asshole” thing is a burden, a toxic heavy one. One day, it kills with bitterness.
Well, we will all have to pay the bill for something, after all…
