“How does it not happen?” replies the Sock Queen. “How, how does anyone keep socks in pairs?”
Super organized teacher suggests gently that Sock Queen pairs the socks before they go in the washing machine.
“I’ll try,” promises Sock Queen as the bell goes to mark end of break. She leaves the staff room, now litter…

A bit more flicking through and I came up with “karma”, now
as an atheist I don't believe the universe has any scales balancing someone's
