15. It was the day of open registration for seniors when I was in college
back then, you had to call in to register.

I called in with my ex-boyfriend's social security number, dropped all his classes, added classes he would never take in a million years, dropped his parking permit, added a motorcycle permit, dropped his yearbook order, and gave him an $85 video yearbook (no one ever ordered those or knew what they were), added a three meal a day, seven day a week meal plan (he lived off campus and had no need for that and it was also incredibly expensive).

I can't remember what else I fucked up in his schedule.

Ok, so I thought it was just a good laugh and I'd change it all back the next day. I figured he'd call in, hear the changes, flip out, and if he didn't change it back (which I figured he would), I would.

I totally forgot I did it.

About a week later, our fee slips came in the mail. He lived in the apartment above mine. I heard screaming. Yelling. Things being thrown. His roommate came down and told us what happened. The other roommate actually became so freaked out by his behavior he left for a few hours. The roommate who came down to tell us kept eyeballing me and I kept looking away.

He tried to change his classes back, but they were full. He got all the other stuff fixed. But because he couldn't get into those classes, his graduation was delayed by TWO semesters (some of the classes were only offered ONE time in the year, not both semesters). He was on work study and had to borrow more money just to graduate.

Yes, I felt horrible. No, I never did anything like that before or since.

No, I never fessed up, either.
