This is a question Being told off as an adult

When was the last time you were properly told off? You know: treated as an errant child rather than the sophisticated adult you are.

The sort of thing that dredges up an involuntary teenage mumble of "Sorry, Miss" whilst you stare at the ground.

Go on, tell us what childish thing you were up to when you got caught.

Oh, and can we have more than one-line answers this time? Cheers!

Trick or Treat
One halloween when i was a student two little kids knocked on the door asking for treats. As a threadbare student house, all we had was baked beans and slightly stale bread.

I didn't want to send the little devils away empty handed, so i delved into the depths of my memory to think of something they might enjoy.

Then i hit upon it MATCHES, every kid loves matches. I duly handed them over only to be told with a sneer which didn't even try and hide the disdain that the little kid obviously held me in.

"Don't you know never to give matches to kids, there dangerous" (there was a definete dur everone knows this kind of emphasis)and handed them back!

i was dumfounded, and chastised. I have never since tryed to encourage kids to play with matches
