Shit I Did As A Teenager

posted in: Humor, Life 156 comments

If you are gullible, you would believe me if I told you I was an awesome teenager.

Okay, I was an awesome teenager.

I was in the top class in my year (never mind that I was at the bottom of the top students). I was in the choir. I was active in after school activities, holding some fairly important posts. I played piano. I did my homework. I did not hang out in the school yard with boys (okay I was in an all-girls school, whatevs). I did not smoke. I did not drink.

You can see a ‘but’ coming, don’t you?

Here it is.

I did a lot of stupid shit too.

Most of it involves my friends, who shall remain nameless as I’m sure they’ve cleaned up their acts now, just like I have. Ahem.

There was the birthday dinner in a Thai restaurant. My friend was celebrating her 16th (or was it 17th) birthday, and her parents unwisely allowed us to dine unsupervised.

A decision they surely regret.

Let’s just say the evening ended with mayonnaise prawn on the windows.

There was also the time at a pizza place, when we decided to pretend we didn’t have any money to pay for our meal, and started pulling out coins from our pockets to “see if we have enough”. I will never forget the look of horror on the poor waitress’s face as she watched us count out our measly stash. We nearly got booted out (we did pay in the end).

And who could forget when we decided to pour ketchup into the salt and pepper shakers at this fancy restaurant who foolishly allowed four teenagers to enter their premises.

Then there was the time when a bunch of us were escorted to the manager’s office in a mall for a glass breaking incident. I swear, I wasn’t involved. I was merely a witness. PROMISE.

The doozy to this list of stupid shit I did as a teenager?

It involved an unused condom and the school principal’s car.

I’ll let your imagination run wild here.

Fortunately, I escaped unscathed and went on to grow up to be a decent adult.

Sort of.

    Great memories! It’s so much fun to remember that stuff and pray that your kids never find out about them to use them as fodder when they do their own stupid stuff.

    One of my fav memories was when I got into the trunk of a friend’s car, and held it shut from the inside. When we stopped at a light, I would let go, and flop my arm out of the trunk like I was a dead person. My friend in the passenger seat would get out, race to the trunk, shove my arm back in, look around furitively, shut the trunk and race back into the car. It was great to see the look on people’s faces! Good times!

    That picture is awesome! Oh, the teenage years. I fear these years with my boys because I wonder just what trouble they will cause. And by today’s standards (at least here), you were pretty darn tame. πŸ˜‰

  • June 14, 2012 Mimi

    I can totally relate! I think back to some of the stuff we did as teens and wonder how we even made it out alive! Scares the the hell out of me when I think about my nieces and nephews and if I ever have kids! LOL. Stopping by from SITS!

    You’re absolutely a decent adult! And I’d love to write a post in order to top your adolescent debauchery, but sadly, I’m afraid someone else in my immediate surrounding would make me shut my blog down…probably my mom this time….sigh…
    Great post Alison, and I LOVE the picture at the end.

      Hah! I’m glad you’re not quitting blogging though. Hey, you can always come to my blog to talk about teenage debauchery…..

    Hahaha! I think we all rebel as teens. Your list sounds pretty tame, nobody got hurt, no drinking, no drugs…I’d be happy if my kids only did stupid restaurant pranks when they are teens. πŸ™‚

  • June 15, 2012 Katie

    I was a total asshole teenager. When I think of the crap that I did, I annoy myself.

    My boys are going to be just like me, aren’t they?

    Damn it.
