Any choice made by an individual which results in shame, remorse, guilt, embarrassment, harassment, and other related feelings/consequences. These decisions tend to be hastily made and are usually pre-meditated, often with the understanding that negative feelings and ruined reputations are soon to follow. These poor life decisions (also often referred to as "PLD's") are elected for the sole purpose of self-gratification, attention, sexual pleasure, or to cure boredom. Often, these decisions involve sexual-based interactions with relative strangers and tend to result in morning-after stories of seemingly good ideas gone awry. Note: Alcoholic beverage consumption tends to increase the rate of PLD occurrences.
"Hey guys, I'm working on my 10th poor life decision for the month! I think I'm going to sleep with that a-hole who refuses to return my calls and makes me pay for cab rides over to his place everytime I offer a little late-night action."
"Last night I took home my ex's room-mate. Would you call that a poor life decision, or what?"
