    It got me in trouble

    so much during my teenage years and my parents always made sure that my rear end paid for it. End even more than ten years later that is what gets me the same consequences with my husband.

    I just don't wait before I say something.

    When I say it, I know immediately that it was a mistake. Recently I've been doing it many times, my mother told me yesterday that I am getting more and more mouthy so I can expect sreious discipline soon :(

    I'm blunt. I'm not fond of sugarcoating things.

    If i said it, expect that i'm not foolin around. This sometimes gets me in trouble tho or I hurt someone "unintentionally" because of being blunt. And sometimes they just can't accept the truth.

    Yeah words come out and you wish you could take

    them back. But you know you can't and you're in big trouble for what you said. And later you're sitting on cushions wishing you hadn't said it.

    Especially when I am drunk

    or angry. I can hurt people with my words if they **** me off, but I try not to do that. As far as when I am drunk, I can be pretty open, but that's not always a bad thing.

    I have problems with memory

    and I blurt stuff out all the time that's supposed to be 'secret' - doesn't help working in a bitchy office full of gossip!

    So something was bothering me

    and I confided in my friend before thinking and now he feels like he can't love me again for a long time! Ugh, why can't I think before I talk!

    I learned it again today.

    My parents didn't want to let me go to an expensive waterpark and I called my mother a bad name. Ouch, it still hurts.

    I don't feel the need

    for any kind of delay on what comes outta my mouth. This does NOT mean that what I say out loud, around random people, & in public places, is appropriate in ANY WAY. I am, however, a firm believer in our god-given right to express ourselves freely through our own selection of...

    I really do. It's gotten me into trouble more

    often than not. 'Have you heard blah blah blah' my response; 'Yes I did.' 'How could you know it just happened.' My response; 'because you just told me.'

    I was once on a date with a young woman

    and she showed me a picture from when she was a ballerina and in better shape. First words out of my mouth? "Wow, you used to be a lot skinnier."

    Hahaha yes. I get myself in trouble a lot by

    just saying the first stupid random thing that comes to mind and offending someone or else they just think I'm really strange. I can't help it if they don't have a sense of humor lol. Also if I get mad or hurt, I will blurt out the first thing that I know will **** them off or...
