Karmic Debt

For the past couple of weeks I've been sifting through my change, plucking out the state quarters or the new one dollar coins and keeping them on my desk. I had a nice collection going.

Today, I get to work and discover that about half of my collection has either walked away on its own power or been pilfered after I left.

A quick call to House Keeping tells me what I already deduced: our offices were cleaned last night.

But I think to myself: If that person needs 6 quarters and two dollar coins bad enough to risk their job by stealing it, I'm not going to complain. He or she needs the coins more than I do. So I mark it up as payment toward a karmic debt.
