My teenage son was recently caught shoplifting from a local convenience store. This is the first trouble he has ever been in. I firmly but calmly explained to him what such a small mistake can do to his future, but I did not punish him. My wife was not happy with me, because she thinks I should have grounded him. She was out of town for work, so I dealt with it how I saw fit. Does my wife have any reason to be angry with me?

My boss is steamed because one of my projects is behind schedule, but it wouldn't be behind if he hadn't given me so much other work! I'm drowning and he doesn't seem to care. Is it my fault that I don't have enough time to get all of my work done?
Last year in college, I was part of a group of three with a 15-page paper to write for an Honors English class. The paper was worth 20% of our final grade. I wrote my 5 pages and sent it over to the group leader. The 2nd person in the group did the same. The group leader only wrote 4 pages, put it all together, and handed it in.

I had never even mentioned another woman to my wife and I decided to leave her. I started talking to a girl and had gotten emotionally intimate with her (nothing physical) but had decided that I loved my wife to...Read more

The check had cleared so I knew something was wrong. Turns out I didn't pay my wife's credit card, but instead I made a second payment to MY credit card. So now my wife has a late payment on her credit history and she is pissed. I just got a little confused, should she really hold it against me?
Last year, I moved from an apartment to a townhouse about 30 minutes away. Many of my family members and friends helped me. Once I was settled that night, I noticed that the place where you attach the coax cable on my almost brand new bedroom TV was broken, rendering the TV useless. I saw who carried it from the apartment to the truck, and from the truck to the townhouse (same person), but he didn't mention anything got broken. Should I be annoyed that it was broken and he did...Read more
Two of my coworkers had an assignment to survey a job site and make a list of the broken equipment. When it came time for the rest of us to work on the site i came across the broken equipment but i didn't bother noting it because i though the other team had made a list already. Turns out they never made or submitted the list to our manager and when it came time to do the testing with the client there was more equipment broken than was expected. I ended up taking the brunt of the b...Read more
