So was it REALLY you?

Tell us about something you got blamed for.

.......and if you really did do it!

I got blamed for all kinds of stuff as a kid.
Much less than I actually did ;-)

Once I got blamed for a guy's report bouncing when he
submitted it to an agency. The report
was an archaeological survey report. He was the project manager
and when the reviewing agency said it needed work
he blamed it on his field crew. I had a very strong urge to
push him off a building because we did everything according
to his specs.

Farting in an elevator. It was a "silent-but-deadly" fart, so there was no sound to identify the culprit. We were on an express elevator from the ground floor to floor 25, so we were stuck for a while. I played it cool and I don't think anyone knew it was me. I kinda feel bad for everyone else. I farted, and it was really me.

Hey. If anything happens, it's always "Siu did it". But it's never really me.

I had someone shrink wrap this guy in his car who always took too long of a break. I found him asleep in his car and had it shrink wrapped around the doors and windows.

Boy was he pissed. Took him FOREVER to get outta there.

I was walking through a pasture with my brother. There was a bull in the pasture. My brother threw a rock at the bull. The bull blamed me.

Let's just say it involved a grassy knoll near a book depository.

Let's just say I have a deep-seated hatred of Lincolns, and am a poor shot.

When I was in 3rd grade a stupid ***** named Carley went and told the lunch ladies I spat on her. Wasn't true, but I got recess detention anyway.

I was accused of stealing 3,000 dollars from an employer

They found out it was not me and they never apologized

I worked at a record store when I was a teenager. One night we came up $100 + short. I was like 'holy crap - wtf? I hate that **** cause it cast suspicion on all of us...'

My manager looked at me and said 'even if you had a hundred bucks on you right now I wouldn't think you would've done it'....

One of the best compliments I ever received.

That would be a major no. I was a fat nerd who was really disliked by all the girls.

Revenge was mine later, when I got in seriously good shape, and ran into some of the girls I went to grade school with, and they checked me out big time, and I wouldn't have touched them with a 70 foot pole.

Eh, don't beat yourself up. Everyone has stuff they want to improve about themselves, but it takes time. Gotta have a little self esteem in the meanwhile.

Once I put on some really nice clothes and "streaked" a nudist resort.


I did not realize I could run that slow.

I was not the kid that was chastised who you thought took your lipstick - messed with it and then stuck it back in the holder in a spiral position!

I was however the person the neighbors saw hitchhiking on route 31. <cough>
