Don't Be So Loud Next Time
From Facebook commenter Chris L:
My friend was looking for the bathroom and walked [into] the host study by mistake. She saw a bottle of Gran Patron Platinum tequila and grabbed it. She found the bathroom but also found the garage. She came and got me and we sat in the garage and we drank a lot of it. We were discovered because we were being so loud and we got into so much trouble.

They Made The Girl Cry
From Facebook commenter Gina K:
We had a Secret Santa exchange at my work a few years ago. We made an agreement to spend no more than $5 because it wasn't a big deal and no one really cared. A coworker of mine bought a card and put a $5 bill in it for the name he got. The girl who received it actually started crying, insulted the person who gave it to her, and made a fool of herself because she was offended by her gift.
