That was a mistake all over the town I think/say starting from Walmart to other parts of this town!

Some years ago, I was in a mall and I saw a album which my cousin wanted, so I caught"his" hand and took him there I looked back at him and saw it was somebody else I didn't know! - Ananya

One time, I mistook my grandfather for a guy that came over to check on our house. I was so embarrassed that I ignored him!

Ha, I still haven't paid my fine. And our school makes us wear ids, and I lost ids twice so I got 2 ids from the office that cost money, I haven't paid that yet. Also my lunch account is in the negatives, I'll pay those next school's out! - Luckys

I would prefer to steal it than lost it. Pay it first, pretending that I lost it then, sale it to others with much higher price.
