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!

I needed to renew my passport in a hurry
I dashed into Boots, and there was a photo machine free.

I hopped in, dropped my money in the slot and waited for the flash.

At that moment I heard a voice like a maiden aunt out of PG Wodehouse say:

"I prefer to think he didn't *see* that there was a queue."

My passport photo for the next ten years looked unbelievably guilty.

And it was one of those oldfashioned machines where you have to wait 5 minutes for the thing to be developed. With everybody in Boots staring at you. Including the 6 people in the orderly line behind the Photo-Me booth.
