. . . everything happens for a reason.

I don't even understand what that means.

Today I was mowing the lawn and after mowing for awhile, I had to stop. The second time I had to start the mower I had to pull the cord three times. Normally, it only takes one pull. What possible reason and whose reason was behind that?

I went to pick up my truck from being repaired today and they forgot to give me my keys. After I walked out to the truck and found no keys in it, I had to walk back to the office and request my keys. What possible reason and whose reason was behind that?

I could go on like this forever.

Everything happens for a reason? . . . Phttttt. Everything? Whose reason?

The only things that happen for a reason are things people do with motive. Those things happen because those people are motivated to make them happen.
