Is that Karma?

By | March 11, 2010

So I sell my car. The car I love and rely on. I search high and low for a pedal-assist bike that I can afford. I rig it so that I can carry my three kids with me. And it breaks. Then the trailer breaks. And I feel pretty down about it. And I’m back to walking.

Then the paper arrives – filled with the huge pile of flyers for stores that I can no longer drive to. Sigh. But, there it is… in the middle of the Canadian Tire flyer… the bike is on sale, for fifty percent off. I’m going to get fifty percent of my money back. Suddenly, I feel much better about the whole thing.

So the moral of this story is: do something good, something good will happen to you.

Canadian Tire is pretty good with their price adjustment policies and hopefully you can get the bike back on the road in no time.

Nope, not karma – more like a kick in the teeth. Checked the website this morning (start of the sale) and every bike but mine is half off. Argh.

Ugh! Give them a call. It may just be an oversight on the web site… hopefully.
