Here is the place where you can share your colossal social blunders, or just plain embarrassing moments due to lack of understanding of proper social behavior.
Maybe we can add to each other's a better way of handling the situation for the future. Or just laugh.
I'll start. I'd had a container full of rainwater on the balcony for awhile, and it was starting to get really gross; so today I decided to get around to taking care of it. I poured it off the side- right onto the neighbor below us. Making him angry. I half-heartedly apologized, but he probably hates me now.
I'm thinking a better thing to do would have been to get a smaller container and throw it off the other side in the grass where no one sits.
