One day in middle school I forgot that my mother told me to meet her at her job (which was a pre-school a few blocks away) instead of going straight home and I went straight home anyway. All the while I am sitting at home watching tv, my parents are at their jobs freaking out that I had been kidnapped or something. Once they realized I had just been forgetful and sitting at home, they really let me have it. I was grounded for awhile too and told to be more responsible about making sure to remember things they tell me. Lol I never forgot anything they told me ever again!
