George used to be a very affluent merchant who lived in a posh area in Hong Kong. He frequently dined in 3-star Michelin restaurants and went golfing every weekend. He also made sure that everyone knew that he was rich and yet harbored no sympathy for people who were in need.
 
All through the years, George’s friends had tried to reach out to him when they needed financial help. Some of these friends had trouble paying off medical expenses, reviving their bankrupt businesses or paying for their children’s expensive college tuition fees. However, none of these friends had been successful in receiving even just a penny from George. His response to his friends’ requests was always a plain “No.” Needless to say, his cold-blooded personality caused him lose many friends.
 
However, as the Chinese like to say “椋庢按杞祦杞” feng shui lun liu zhuan - every dog has his day - things for George went south as Hong Kong plunged into an economic recession in 2008. His business failed, went bankrupt and he had to give up on his luxurious apartment to pay off his debts. His friends, though, did not suffer as much as he did from the recession. 
 
Perhaps you already know where this story is going? After going bankrupt, George tried to reach out to his “friends” who had previously asked for his help before, but of course as one would expect, none of his friends lent him any money; George got a taste of his own medicine. 
 
Confucius’ famous Golden Rule of “浠ュ叾浜轰箣閬擄紝杩樻不鍏朵汉涔嬭韩” yi qi ren zhi dao, hai zhi qi ren zhi shen -”Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you”- carries a similar meaning as “a taste of your own medicine.” Next time when you want to cut a long waiting line for a roller coaster at a theme park, know that others may do the same to you. And if you dislike people doing that, you probably shouldn’t cut the line in the first place. Bad karma almost always leads you to taste your own medicine
