REVIEW: IDENTIFYING
VICTIM & CREATOR STATEMENTS
I didn't study enough for this quiz;
I'm going to spend thirty minutes
every evening reviewing my
notes.
It’s not my fault I’m late. My stupid
alarm clock didn't work again.
That's three times this week!!
Boy, that parking lot sure is
crowded. I'm going to start getting
here fifteen minutes early.

I can't believe my sister didn't
wash my clothes last night; I
didn't have anything to wear
today.
I am so stupid. I flunked
another math test. I wish math
was as easy for me as it is for
Kamika.
I didn't get the promotion. I'm
going to make an appointment
with my manager and get her
ideas on how to improve my
chances for next time.
