I threw a load of DD4 and DD9's toys away earlier in the month as they have faaaaar too much stuff and I was de-cluttering.After swimming, DD9 asked where X, y and z toy were and I said I had no idea. I do. At the charity shop. Oops. Feeling guilty now. Has anyone else ever been sneaky or told a white lie or been underhanded and then felt abit shit afterwards?

When I was 9yrs old, I decided I was fed up of sharing a bedroom with my 13yr old sister.

So I pulled the plug out of her hot water bottle and soaked her mattress.

She had to sleep on the couch for a couple of days while it dried out blush

When I was about 10 I had to sit next to a boy in a lot of my lessons, who was horrible to me and always making me feel stupid. So one day I made myself fall off my chair dramatically (pretending I was hurt) and told the teacher it was him who pushed me - the teacher was very disappointed in him and he got detention. That was always the up side of being a quiet, well behaved girl, the teacher always believed you! I did feel very guilty about it afterwards though.

One of my employees and I switched the company hold music from a very nice piece by Handel to Jethro Tull's Aqualung. Which is just wrong on so many levels.

I paid for now XH to buy a vintage motorbike while we were still married. When he went (he'd had affairs and I told him to leave) he took all of the solid silver, the best bits of the furniture, along with his three motorbikes and two cars. including the vintage motorbike which he'd taken apart, intending to restore it. (Of course, he walked out of the house without a backward glance, leaving me with years of his crap to sort through.)
I did wait a few months, but then one day, whilst I was sorting out the garage, the bucket that contained screws, washers, bolts and nuts got tipped into the recycling bin.
Oops.

I went with my dad to our shop and did my paper round whilst my mum, sister and lots of friends/neighbours moved mum, sis, myself and our pets out of the family home.
I cannot tell you the emotional and financial abuse he had put us through leading to that point. He never thought mum would get the courage to do it. Despite him moving his girlfriend in with us, being thoroughly horrid during mum's cancer treatment and just generally being nasty to us.
The relief after I had done my round and could go to "my friend's party" was unreal.
Even when mum phoned him later from our new home, he was more interested in whether we had taken his prized vinyl Collection.

Madam I would prefer to listen to Aqulung while on hold! might make it bearable.

I periodically donate my DC toys to charity shop. After Xmas etc, I try to get rid of 2 toys for every 1 they 'bring' into the house. Just got rid of a whole load of more 'babyish' toys; my youngest is now 3 and has outgrown plastic shite. Funny thing is when i ask DC if there are any toys they would like to donate they go ballistic and refuse to hand any over, yet they never notice said toys when they've been removed!
DH is a notorius hoarder so I slip into his junk stuff and throw a lot of crap away too when he's not around. He has also never noticed anything missing!

Christ Anaffaquine! That took some planning I bet!

Anaff I hope your mum sold your Dad's vinyl collection, and got a good price for it.
Mine hahaha good on you. Did your Ex try and come back for them?

ProfessorPickles Mon 07-Mar-16 22:39:52

Amazing Anaff! I hope your family were much happier with him out of the way, I also hope your mum sold that vinyl collection!!

I put milk and prawns inside my ex bf sofa bed while it was still at my house so it was dry when he took it . But a weeks or so later..... grin
He did deserve it and I feel no regret even now nearly twenty years later ...

I hated my job so I got another. Instead of working the two month notice I lied to my GP and they signed me off for the whole period. Had a great time off and went into new job who were none the wiser. Yep I'm a shit person

I gave loads of toys away sneakily only for my daughter to fixate on one particular missing one - a soft blue hippo she called "Hippoey." I came home from work to find she had pinned wanted posters all over the complex we lived in saying "have you seen my pet, he is bloo and he is too and I luv him so very much and I miss him so much I cry"
I felt like such a shit. She still mentions him sometimes, five years later. And yet I don't think I'd ever seen her play with him.

When my DS and I were young I would bite my tongue if she upset me and then sneak upstairs and scratch one of her records. I have had several years of therapy since then and am now less passive-aggressive.....now I would probably tell her I was going to scratch her record.

I cant say what I have done...it would have implications grin

It was beautiful though.

MegGriffin1 Mon 07-Mar-16 22:58:23

Thinking on I've done loads of sneaky stuff, I think I have a problem lol

fuzzpig Mon 07-Mar-16 23:00:04

I have done exactly what you did in your OP!

I stole my friend's boyfriend when I was 17. I still feel awful about it. I fell in love with him and got totally blinded but there's no excuse, I was an awful person. I wouldn't dream of doing such a thing a decade later. Unsurprisingly it killed our friendship! I did get totally (rightly) ostracised from our group and had a pretty awful time of it (would you believe the boy turned out to be a prize twat?!) but it doesn't absolve me.

I feel slightly better given that she got married last year, but not entirely!

I've done far far worse in my formative years but was quite surprised how guilty I felt about something so trivial. I do hope I'm not growing a conscience as I approach my 50's. I've also lied about not buying things I have and hiding the items until the coast is clear. Don't we all do..... something?

mineofuselessinformation Mon 07-Mar-16 23:11:32

What could he do or say???

I have a toy quarantine i the cupboard under the stairs. If not wanted for 6 month they go. I do this because I had a similar favourite toy thrown out episode.
