Oh no you ditten!

Right vs Wrong

I’m betting I’m not the only one who has done something that could be considered umm… questionable? If choice of Right or Wrong, my actions in the following scenarios would all be considered wrong. But who will cast the first stone?  I dare you.

I was doing the usual mountains of laundry my family continuously churns out, and, after I finished one of the loads, I realized I had forgotten to add the detergent. Did I do the right thing and rewash the whole load WITH detergent? Um, no.

When my youngest was still a “youngster” youngster, maybe around five or six?, he was in the hot tub. (And Gerald and I were standing right there so he wasn’t alone and not in a dangerous situation or anything) Before we could get him out, he hit the button for the jets and was having a grand time. We didn’t have the heart to tell him there was a dead mouse skeleton in there with him as well. <I know, ew!> We had known about the dead mouse in the pool for a while but we were just too damn lazy to bother getting it out. We had no idea our kiddo would decide to hop on in there with what was left of the poor rodent. We at least sped up our son’s whirlpool departure.

Back in my latter days of high school, I gave a guy a wrong number, only to have the friend who was with me say my (correct) number out loud while the guy and I were both standing there. Busted.  <And even more awkward when he actually called the right number>

I took my youngest shopping, and even though I did not need a new purse, I convinced myself that I deserved the cute red purse hanging right there, just taunting me, I tell you. It made me feel better that Gerald actually agreed with my reasoning, that taking my youngest shopping for clothes was ROUGH, and I did deserve a reward. Haven’t used the purse yet though…

Okay, let’s hear what y’all got. Where have you sort of crossed the line due to laziness, a sense of entitlement, or whatever?

  1. I hope it wasn’t me that gave your correct number to the guy!

    One of my questionable choices would be, I found money in the dryer that I know wasn’t mine, but guess what… I kept it! I figure, I’m doing the laundry and any money left in pockets is fair game!


    1. Nope, twas not you. 🙂

      I’ve done the whole money in the laundry thing too! There have been occasions when I have at least attempted to get the money back to its rightful owner. Usually depends on my mood though.

  2. There are, embarrassingly, far too many of these instances I’ve been guilty of. Most recently, I was given a bottle of wine at work for Christmas, which was conveniently my partner’s favourite wine.
    He was really happy when I got home and handed him the bottle that I’d ‘just decided to pick it up for you because I know how much you love it, and I know you’ve had a hard week’

    Free brownie points for me, I’m absolutely shameless!

    1. I’m just certain you would’ve gotten your partner his wine regardless of whether you got it as a gift or not. Right?? Cute. And yes, lots of brownie points for you! 🙂

  3. Let’s see, the time that I didn’t tell my son about his friend’s birthday party because it was going to be very inconvenient to get him there? (ok, that was a bad one). Or the time I claimed I had a business meeting to avoid dinner with the (now ex-) mother in law?

    Oh, I’ve got tons. I like the skeleton in the hot tub, though. That’s a good one.
