The best kind of karma is the swift kind, and it's even better when someone manages to grab a video of it while it's being delivered. Seeing people walk through life and pushing everyone out of their way to get theirs is aggravating, but the idea that the universe will stockpile their offenses and redeliver them ten times worse at some point in the future is one that a long of us happily hold on to and take an unreasonable amount of joy in once its finally delivered.
It's a great feeling when that delivery comes moments after an egregious transgression though, there's no denying that. It doesn't have to be something huge, just incredibly embarrassing, and instant. The delivery time is what makes it all the sweeter, especially when the offender looks around and wants to lash out at someone but really only has himself or herself to blame for their embarrassing predicament. They've reaped what they've sowed and when it came time to harvest, everything just left a bitter taste in their mouths.
Reddit user chiefstreet posted a twenty second YouTube clip on Thursday that is basically a one act play. The footage appears to be from a dash cam or GoPro in the front of a car. The driver stops at a light as a man in a red hat and his adorable cocker spaniel start to cross. The guy seems to be annoyed that the driver took the stop kind abruptly, or maybe he's mad that he didn't hit his horn? It's a little unclear, but he definitely seems mad, taking the whole crosswalk distance to gesture rudely at the person behind the wheel.
And then...Karma steps in:
As many commenters pointed out, the funniest part of the video isn't necessarily when he face plants into a pole, but his reaction right after, when he turns towards the driver as though they had planned exactly this outcome all along:
One user shared their own story of fighting an angry man who was taking a stand against poles:
Some people wanted to be fair to the guy:
Though others wanted to be fair to the driver, and pointed out that it was the man's own fault if he was close to the car. Which is true, because they don't put poles in the middle of a crosswalk curb:
But then someone finally remembered who really matters in all this: The dog.
