No, it's just crappy luck.
I've been looking to buy a Buddha statue for quite some time. Today, www.buddhagroove.com had a sale and also happened to have a statue that I liked. I was set to go.
Meanwhile, one of my sons--who shall go unnamed to protect his reputation--put in an unauthorized bid on something on ebay.
Being unable to pay for both my statue and his ebay crap, I had to hold off on placing my order until the ebay bid was resolved, which happened shortly after midnight.
The sale was over by then.
I'm trying not to take it too hard.
You know, attachment and suffering and all that.
On the other hand, I wanted to make him suffer which probably didn't foster his attachment to me at the time. Fortunately, his empathy kicked in which redeemed him somewhat. He'll never do that again, and I probably don't need a statue afterall.
I'm sure this will be funny in time.
