    I once went to P.F. Chang's

    for supper with a group of friends. I had a really good time there, until I had driven well away from the restaurant. That's when I realized I forgot to give the waiter an extra $5 for the tip. I felt really bad about it, but it was too late to do anything. I also feel like I...

    My biggest mistake was going out with a guy just

    because I was bored. I ended up pregnant then stuck for 13 years when he threatened to run away with my kids. I feel so bad for my kids about the father they didn't deserve to have. They deserve so much better.

    I was reading something online

    and I was engrossed in its contents when someone came in. I hate being interrupted while reading, plus the TV was on high and I hated loud noises. I ended up being in a bad mood quickly and yelled out "I Don't Care" to their questions.
