What was the worst decision you ever made?

Bought a truck when I was 24 or so. I overpaid, agreed to a ridiculous APR, and it ended up breaking down two years into a five year payment plan.

I don't know. Going out with a certain guy in high school? But that was a learning experience. Not buying puppets I liked in a puppet shop when the lady who owned it had opened it up especially for us?

Hmmm . . . I don't really believe in worst decisions. All decisions are good at the time you make them. In retrospect, I guess buying my first car was a bad, ill-informed decision. But it strenghtened my next car buying decision skills.

Okay, the worst decision I ever made. So many things to choose from.
a) Taking my current job
b) Taking forever to decide what I want to do with my life.
c) Buying the old Firebird.
d)fall into my major at TSU.
e) Basically, my carrer to date. Hopefully, current events will cause future events to change...but whatever.

I can't answer this question. I've spent my life making imperfect decisions, then moving on and learning from them. Had I made only wise decisions I would not be the same person.

My worst decision was probably taking a job at this one company in 1994. I was desperate to leave another job so I took this one and wound up jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. It turned out to be a terrible job at a place with open hostility between departments and boring work that didn't teach me anything useful and didn't help my resume. I left within six months.

There is no one that really stands out. Learning when to rectify a bad decision and when it is wiser just to move on from it is part of maturing.

I've made any number of bone-headed decisions... maybe buying the pleated, robins egg blue gauze pants without trying them on. They made my butt look huge and I couldn't return them.
