Crashed my Mustang into four parked cars, and nobody was hurt but me luckily, 8 stitches across my one eyebrow slight concussion, but I also didn’t get a DUI; by the time the cop was on the scene, I was in the ambulance, and I legit do have a medical condition, which I used as an excuse…and the medics did back up it was possible it could be due to that issue.”

Thought my nephew would benefit from a bit of time to catch up so he could save to get his own place. Except he didn’t save money, trashed my place, and then was angry when I told him he had to leave. Hope his friends are having fun being taken advantage of!”

“Falling in love with someone that I made a fake image of. I have a really unhealthy habit of painting a fake image of someone I barely know, and I like this fantasy version of them.
I ended up in a relationship with someone I barely knew that well, and I was just in love with a version of them that didn’t even exist. And it’s been months now since our break up, and I have been doing way better mentally and learning. I am most definitely not repeating that mistake ever again.”
