Incredibly Immature Things Adults Have Done

We like to think that being alive for a decently long time will give anyone some humility and wisdom, but sometimes that's just not the case. There are some of us who just can't take a look in the mirror and see our own behavior for what it is. That extends to unforgivable things house guests have done as well as bold mistaken customers who were at the wrong store.
