I learned the hard way that if I'd just grab 'em and tell 'em what I did, no dancing, no excuses and especially no fibbing, it was generally better. If I'd stand there and hang my head, twist my toe in the carpet and say, "Mea Culpa", I'd get forgiven a lot quicker. Might still be in trouble but I hadn't heaped a bunch of other stuff on top of the original mistake. Took me til my 20's or so though.....
