13- that's fine, my friends parents' tell me that, too. But where the OP hadn't seen this particular friend in ages, it seems that they're obviously not particularly close. Therefore, OP shouldn't have walked in, and DEFINITELY should not have helped themselves to food.
It could have been one of OP's best friends and they could have been really close still despite not seeing each other for a long time. Especially if OP's friend was expecting OP then I don't see how it's strange for OP to walk in and help his or her self .. wouldn't you let your friend do that if they were coming over??
Well, that's why you don't go into a house you aren't sure about. Then eat their food right away? That's just disrespectful. You deserve it.
51: i'm with you. i've been best friends with mine for about 15 years now, and if visited when he wasn't home, i ALWAYS asked his mom if it was alright if i had a snack. if no one was home, i would have sent him and/or his mom a text and waited outside on the porch, even though i knew their door was unlocked. YDI, OP. probably should have at least made sure you had teh right house before you walked in and helped yourself :/
It's outback Oz. Believe it or not, there actually are places in the world that you don't get shot or stabbed on site for not being recognized. It's an old mate that lives out in the country, therefore there aren't that many houses/ properties around. Would be easy to get dis-oriented. If he thought for sure it was his mates' places, then sure thing eat their food lol.
U didnt think to call n let ur friend know u were on ur way? Or that u were there?.... Well i hope the other fam was understanding.
I can't stand text talk. Especially since almost everyone has a smart phone, with a full keyboard. It made more sense to txt lik dis wen fones didn't have full keyboards. But now there is no need to do that. I don't text me friends back if they use text talk to me.
I'd have laughed, if it was my house. Once I was assured you were hungry and not dangerous, of course. I'd have even let you keep the food you took.
Why would you do that? Common sense is disappearing faster and faster these days.
... He obviously thought it was his friends house... that's why he thought it was okay. Did you even read the FML?? Haven't you ever accidentally tried to get into the wrong car? Accidentally walked into the men's room? This is pretty much an accident along those lines... only far more embarrassing; I'd have to say.
