Parking KARMA, Supermodels, and Speeding Tickets!

So, yesterday one of my friends posted on his Facebook page that he was having really good parking KARMA in Boston. He is working in a marketing position so I imagine that he is on the road quite a bit, so to get a really good parking space once is good. Twice and more than that, he definitely has REALLY good parking KARMA. Maybe part of the reason why is because he is not driving a really HUGE SUV, which is interesting considering he is about 6’4”.

I definitely believe in KARMA. What goes around comes around. Like if you drop your gum on the street, and somebody steps in it, you will be stepping in dog poop some time in the very near future. If you have a dog, and don’t pick your dog’s poop, then you will be stepping in cow manure some time in the near future. It can go on and on. What goes around comes around.

Except, I think if you are a supermodel! Then, KARMA doesn’t count, and what goes around comes around doesn’t count either. If you are a supermodel, then you can get away with things that non-supermodels can’t. You can drive a HUGE SUV and get away with things, like speeding. Take for example, Gisele Bundchen. This past Saturday she was speeding around Barnstable, MA in her HUGE Cadillac SUV going about 70 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone, and she had two kiddos in the back seat.

Well, supermodel Gisele AND wife to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady got off with a verbal warning. The trooper claims he did not give Mrs. Brady any kind of special treatment. He also claims that four other drivers were given verbal warnings during the same afternoon. There were also 20 others who did get tickets, but they were committing other violations besides speeding. What were they doing? We will never know. However, was it just the supermodel looks of Gisele that got her off, or was it the fact that she is Brady’s wife and the speeding took place in New England? Maybe it was a combination of the two.

Either way, she got away with it. I was caught speeding a few years ago going 45 mph in a 35 mph zone. I got a ticket. I didn’t get a nice verbal warning. Then again, I am not a supermodel and I am not married to Brady.
