Oh boy. I’m almost scared to admit the bad thing I did in high school…I mean, I look back and I’m like, “How could I have done that?”
Yeah, well, hindsight’s 20/20 right?
So, I wanted to hang with friends and go to a party, but I totally had to work. I couldn’t very well play sick to get out of it, because then the folks would make me stay at home.
And I’d rather go to work if you know what I mean.
So….I got ready, headed to work, only I never really got there. I’d snuck a phone call to my boss and told them my grandmother had died and I couldn’t come to work.
Then I went out and partied.
Later in the evening my friend tells me, “Your mom called my mom looking for you. You’re in deep s**t.”
Yes, a stream of curses flowed like a river from my mouth.
But really, there wasn’t anything I could do other than fess up because my FOLKS had gone to where I worked to eat (I worked at Arby’s back then) and my co-workers were all like, “Oh, I’m sorry about your mom.”
**hangs head in shame**
What a horrible thing I did. I so deserved to get caught. So glad not to be a slave to the impulses of a teenage mind and body.
What’s your story?
