I was looking forward to watching my favorite t.v. show, but when I got home my brother started to fight with me and my mother punished both of us. I wasn't allowed to watch t.v.
I thought—"This isn't fair. Why did this happen? Nothing is going right today. My brother should be punished, not me!" I felt angry at my brother and my mother. I lost my temper.
