Help! October 17, 2015

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Humor, Magick & Mystery.


A woman hurried to the pharmacy to get medication, got back to her car and found that she had locked her keys inside.

She found a rusty coat hanger on the ground, picked it up, and realized she didn’t know how to use it.

She asked the Universe to send HELP.

Poisoned Apple

Within 5 minutes a beat-up motorcycle pulled up.  A bearded man wearing an old biker skull rag got off the cycle and walked toward her.

Too anxious to be afraid, she said,”Can you help me?  My daughter is sick and I’ve locked my keys in the car. I must get home. Can you use this hanger to unlock my car?”

“Sure.” He flexed the hanger and unlocked the car in less than a minute.

She smiled and said, “The Universe sent the right man for the job.”


The man chuckled at the irony.  “I just got out of prison this week . . . after doing time for car theft.”

The woman laughed, “That’s great!  The Universe sent a Professional!”

Aah . . . that’s better!

A fortunate stroke of serendipity. It goes to show that everyone has their uses. 🙂

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

Yes! Here’s to doing what we can . . . with what we have . . . where we are.

I wonder if she put in a good word for him with his parole officer. 😅

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

And allowed him to feel accepted.

2. brickhousechick - October 17, 2015

Ha,ha! A criminal when you need him – perfect! That is funny, Nancy. 🙂

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

Hidden talents!

3. mybeautfulthings - October 17, 2015

Serendipity indeed! There is generosity in each of us. 🙂

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

Yes. And kindness echoes.

4. L. Marie - October 17, 2015

Hilarious! Now she should run for the hills!

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

Singing “born to be W~I~L~D!”

5. http://theenglishprofessoratlarge.com - October 17, 2015

The universe certainly has a strong sense of irony.

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

A vast reservoir filled with HUMOR.

6. colonialist - October 17, 2015

I love the positive slant she put on it!

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

Me too!

7. Tiny - October 17, 2015

Oh yes! I like professionals and a good chuckle 😀

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

A fun and funny twist of fate.

8. Grannymar - October 17, 2015

There is good in everyone if we only give them a chance.

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

Here’s to letting our best light shine!

9. diannegray - October 17, 2015

Even criminals have a place in our society, LOL 😀

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

That’s right! This guy can be in charge of teaching Car Safety 101 ~> Tip #1: Maintain your key when locking the car.

10. Jill Weatherholt - October 17, 2015

Perhaps he’s reformed? Good one, Nancy!

nrhatch - October 17, 2015

Thanks, Jill. Here’s to moving from where we are to where we want to be.

11. Behind the Story - October 17, 2015

I love this. It’s good to be appreciated for his skills, especially on his first week out of prison.

nrhatch - October 18, 2015

Just the nudge he needed!

12. BunKaryudo - October 18, 2015

And the burglar who broke into her safe later was just checking that she hadn’t left her keys inside.

nrhatch - October 18, 2015

Inside the safe the burglar found a bunch of cassettes by artists with names beginning with a letter from l to r.

13. BunKaryudo - October 18, 2015

A-ha! So that’s where they went! I want to ask her for my John Lennon back.

nrhatch - October 18, 2015

Yes! Otherwise Instant Karma gonna knock her on the head!

BunKaryudo - October 18, 2015

Ha ha! Well, as long as she returns it, no more will be said. It’ll be like starting over.

nrhatch - October 18, 2015

That’s the spirit!

14. jannatwrites - October 18, 2015

That’s too funny! It’s amazing how fear (and sometimes common sense) escapes us when we are panicked.

nrhatch - October 18, 2015

Fear can stop us dead in our tracks. Sometimes the most “dangerous” thing we can do is “play it safe.”

While we are here, we might as well LIVE!

15. Patricia - October 18, 2015

Good thing he didn’t lose his professional talents while in prison.

nrhatch - October 18, 2015

Yes! Use it or lose it! 😉

16. Carol Ferenc - October 18, 2015

Good one! I didn’t see that coming. Thanks for the giggle, Nancy!

nrhatch - October 18, 2015

My pleasure. Glad it tickled your funny bone chakra.

17. Pix Under the Oaks - October 19, 2015

I like it! I like her response to him!

nrhatch - October 19, 2015

Yes, unfazed by the confession & appreciative of the effort.

18. Barb - October 20, 2015

Yeah, the Universe sometimes sends who you don’t expect. 😀

nrhatch - October 20, 2015

Yes! Life is filled with surprises.

19. Debra - October 20, 2015

The Universe can be very creative! 🙂

nrhatch - October 20, 2015

Yes! Giraffes and Zebras being prime examples.

Debra - October 20, 2015

Ha! You’re so right!

nrhatch - October 21, 2015

And tortoises!

20. Tammy - October 22, 2015

The universe does answer, doesn’t it Nancy?

nrhatch - October 23, 2015

It does! Sometimes “Yes.” Sometimes “No.”
And sometimes “Wait And See!”
