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!

Chase just reminded me...
I was on a choir tour of New England, and we were in New York for a couple of days. A bunch of us asked the hotel receptionist to recommend a restaurant close by, and so he directed us to this little Italian place a couple of blocks away.

The meal was good, nothing spectacular, and came to about $20 a head. I put some lot of it on my credit card, and the others paid in cash. I also included a tip on the credit card, and those paying by cash put down the appropriate tip as well.
We were just leaving when the owner of the place, a dried-up, middle-aged ex-whore with a mouth (and indeed a face) like a dog's arse, started screaming at us, whilst brandishing the cash part of the tips we had left. Apparently we had not put down enough of a tip; how the hell did we expect her waitresses to live off that? Who the hell did we think we were?

Of course, the proper thing to do would have been to point out that the cash was only part of the payment, there was a significant amount of tip on the credit card payment, and to be quite frank, surely it's her who should be responsible for how much her waitresses get paid, if she's so worried about it.

Naturally, we threw a $10 bill at her and ran away, and called her a foul, grasping old bitch once back in the security of our hotel rooms.
