It is a fine spring day! You are taking a walk with your dog. You are very protective over her, and do not want other people to pet her. Suddenly, a tug comes from your leash, and the dog goes running of, leash flying behind her. You finally chase up to her and see someone of your age playing with your dog. You are very upset to the fact that that person is touching your dog. How do you react?

Oh no! This is terrible! You approach the
person and gently but firmly say, "Excuse me,
this is my dog. I usually don't let people touch
her, but this time, she ran off!" You smile and
lead your dog away!
What. Does. This. Person
Think. They're. Doing! You run up to the
person and snatch the leash of the ground.
"What do you think you're doing?" You mutter
"Get your hands off my dog!"
You walk up slowly and stand there while
they
play. Finally, you say "Um..." the person
blushes and realizes that it is your dog.
"Sorry! But you own SUCH an adorable dog!"
The person says.
You smile and lead your dog on.

You end your walk at the elementary school, and head back home. At home, you walk into the kitchen for lunch. There is a friend of your sister's at home and she tells you to make her a sandwich for lunch. You know how to make one, though you are tired and do not like being ordered around.

"Uh huh. And why don't you make one
yourself? Too lazy?" You roll your eyes and
sit down at the table. "Can't you see I'm tired?
And since when did YOU become the queen
of France?" You feel a fire in you, and you
want to keep tending it.
You do it but you ask for her help here and
there as well as asking to eat one too. She
agrees to share, and you two sit down to a
delicious lunchtime meal.
You nod and make one as fast as you can,
you have to be polite to the guest! You place
the plate on the table and your mouth waters
at the sight. You don't say a word, in fear of
sounding rude...After all, they were made for
her!

The meal is finished and you sit down to watch TV. But, you slip and fall on water that your sister spilled and you fall on the TV. It falls down and smashes against the floor.
You know that if anyone found out, you would be in serious trouble. You could call your parents, but they might be mad instead of sympathetic. What do you do?

You start to cry and you don't do anything. If
your parents found out, your dead!/Call them
and tell a better and half true version of the
story. You quickly buy another one and
replace it like it had never been damaged!
Ooh...no! It's all because of that stupid
sister, and her stupid puddle! And, no, she's
not my sister, not anymore. I'll get that little
worm back for framing me! I'll rip her into
shreds and...uuugh! You call your parents.
"You've gotta ground her. For a year." You
hiss into the phone. "My sister." You add.
They sound confused as they ask you what
you mean, and you say "That girl made me
accidently fall on the TV!"
You start to cry, but stop yourself. You tell
your sister that the next time she spills
something, to always mop it up. "Ok, sorry"
she says and you forgive her. You call your
parents and tell them. They laugh and say
that accidents happen, but let this be a
lesson! They buy a new one, and everything
is back to the way it was.

Your friends invite you to a sleepover. You ask who else is going and your friend replies. There are 4 others going, and within that four, someone that you extremely dislike. One other you don't know, and 2 people you aren't entirely close to, but are friendly enough. You are worried the person will cause trouble for you, but would love to go! Your friend is eager to get a decision. What do you decide?

Go! You're not going to let this person ruin
this party! You are prepared to laugh off
anything that might spoil the fun.
You would go...except that this antagonist is
going to be there...
Go! And if she even dares...oh..I am going to
make her regret it! That's right, don't even
dare!

It turns out that the person isn't coming! You go to the party and have the time of your life! You guys feast on sweets, and pretty soon, there is only one candy left. This is your favorite kind. You want it, but you ate the most as well. You could have it if you wanted, but you know that would be unfair. What's your decision?

Eat it, but be sure to be polite and not grab it
out of their hands, which would be rude./ No,
first
off, it's not any good for you, second, you
already ate most of them, why not let others
have a
taste?
It's fine...that one probably hasn't even tried
it!
Why steal from others? But I think I would eat
it if it was given to me.
Eat it of course! It's MY favorite, plus, if they take it, won't it be wasted?
No one's stopping me, and it IS made for guests to eat...so...

You go home, tired, but happy. You get home, and have a great night of rest...well until your sister wakes you up by splashing your face with freezing cold water. But for good or ill, you are late for an appointment and if she had not waken you up, you would have missed it. So hurrying, you think about the situation, how does it make you feel?

That was NOT wanted, but it did work, and she did it in favor. So what is there to be unhappy about? (Other than the fact that you're freezing and your bed is wet...)
I DON'T need her to do anything for me! I'm fully independent, and now it's her to blame that I am shivering and I get to sleep on a water bed tonight!
That was nice of her...and there's nothing wrong with being cold, I'll be fine in a second, and it worked, right?!

You eat breakfast, and head off to your doctor's appointment. When you get there, you wait for two whole hours, before they call you last name. Still sleepy, you shuffle into room 107, where Nurse Morgan meets you. She greets you and you sit down.
That's when you realize she called your name wrong.

What...Maybe I should tell her, I mean, it IS annoying. And it's not like it was on purpose.
It's alright. It doesn't hurt. What if I said, and it totally came out mean?
Sheesh. And I thought this was a proffesional office! Jeez, even a phony could at least get a NAME right.
