Today, I was driving to a job interview when I saw a businesswoman standing next to her BMW on the side of the road. She had a flat tire. I pulled over and helped her put on the spare. When I arrived to the interview, the woman who I helped ended up being the CEO of the company. I got the job. MMT

Now that's what I call Carma.

I'm happy this worked out for you, but I can't help but think if you hadn't gotten so lucky that you would have lost whatever job you were late for. :'(

Hey #2, you can't read.

hey #3, can't YOU read? #2 is exploring the possibility of the woman not being his boss which is a million times more likely than this post and I have to agree with them.

You're an extremely lucky man...

#2 & #4, it doesn't say that he was late. He might have left plenty of time to get to the interview.

That could have been the determining test. If it was, you passed it.

Right on!

I Kindof doubt that this happened.... BMW have run flat tires and so they dont get flat tires..... Just saying....

Good for you!

#9 Absorb the lesson and move on, no need to 'just say' anything that could ruin it for someone.

@ Godsgirl --- this site is for thinking.

No luck, no karma, you have royal nature thats enough for your success.

just to let you know, i used to drive a 530xi bmw, with run flats, from slowing down as fast as i could from 110 to 0 to avoid rear ending a car, one of the tires blew out, theyre really not too dependable

'' I Kindof doubt that this happened.... BMW have run flat tires and so they dont get flat tires..... Just saying....'' @9, that is not how it works, the run-flat tire doesn't deflate immidiately, but it does after 100-200-300 miles, depends on tire quality/road type/weight of what is in the car. She could have easily overlooked the flat tyre and still strand on the side of a road. ALSO , there is a chance she changed the tires? winter tires or some other kind of tires. Just saying.

Carmaaaaaaa! It doesn't always have to be a b*tch.

I doubt this happened because the CEO is not the hiring manager.

Counter argument to antilegomena's otherwise valid comment is startups, where the CEO is also anything he or she damn well pleases. Or, y'know, has to be.
