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.

29- doesn't mean they're not close, it means they haven't seen each other in ages. I have friends I haven't seen in ages that I'm very close to, it's just not practical for us to visit each other because of the distance.

It's also in the country. Even further than that it is in Australia. It could be a lot different there than in the city or suburbs where we lock everything and trust nobody.

@62: So this normal behaviour in (rural) Australia? Provided you don't do it to some stranger?

It really depends on their relationship with said friend. I know people who will get offended when I ask for things and insist this I help myself. Still, that had to be a hard one to explain to the family that walked in...

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.

You shouldn't even do that if they are your best friends and you are sure. I wouldn't want my friends coming in and if I wasn't there just eating my food. YDI OP. You just don't do that.

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 :/

Not everyones relation is the same... Different norms applies to different environments and the relation itself.

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.

Even with the grammar of a tooth pick I'm thumbing you down because OP went to the wrong house. Even if they did call and say they where on their way, doesn't matter because they went to the WRONG house. (not sure if I used the right "where" or "their")

32- what the hell? Nobody I know texts like that, and if they did, I'd never text them again. Also, this isn't even texting, so im not sure why you put that.

Since I was 11 I have been texting properly because it pisses me off when someone sends a text like this: H3y [email protected] UP MAn? Plus, it just looks plain stupid.

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.

It's nice to see someone taking this lightly. Everyone else is ready to crucify the guy for making a mistake.

... 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.
