4. Being an aspiring singer and stealing a dead man's songs to become famous.

We've all been there: Your fledgling singing career isn't really taking off so when a singer that you're driving in a limo with dies in a car crash that you survive, you of course take his notebook of smash-hit songs and pass them off as your own. WHO HASN'T DONE THAT?

9. Just graduating from school and purchasing an actual bar, even though you're not the legal age to drink alcohol yet.

Can you imagine an 18 year old purchasing a bar EVEN THOUGH the legal drinking age in the state of California is 21? Also, he accidentally bought it when he was drunk, so in the morning he didn't know he'd done it. THE JOY OF HAVING SO MUCH MONEY.

11. Having a birthday party where you are the theme and there's a raffle for people to win a permanent tattoo of your face on their body.

13. Someone pretending to be your long-lost brother when in fact they are just scamming your family for money.

Let's run this down real quick: you're mortal enemies with a girl who it turns out you share a half brother with and then said half-brother turns up out of the blue but it's not really your half-brother, it's just someone pretending so he can get a truckload of money and disappear again. PHEW.
