    Oh my gosh, this thread is hilarious!! I had to quote almost every post!

    Fantastic - I did the office snort when I read the second one!

    Yup. I do this all the time. Go down to the basement to get something, and while I'm down there I throw in a load of laundry, check the supply of toilet paper, etc and then go back upstairs, realizing I forgot to get the thing I went down for!

    Ugh, I do this all the time too. So annoying and embarrassing! I also used to lock my keys in the car with alarming regularity, when I had manual locks. Remote entry is the best thing ever!!

    * Nearly broke into someone else's truck because I thought it was mine. The key wasn't unlocking the door and I was shaking the shit out of the door handle. Eventually, some dog inside the car starts barking viciously and scared the shit out of me. It was a BIG dog.

    * Attempted to upload a homework assignment online for school and accidentally uploaded the wrong file...a thing I typed up about my idea of installing toilets in car seats...flip the seat up and take a shit on road trips. No need for rest stops during road trips. Well, I couldn't delete it once I realize what I'd done, so of course the Professor read it and actually emailed me personally and said he'd buy something like that.
    Haha, I can't say I've done the first two, but they both made me lol. As for the third one... my husband and I totally did this at Ren Fest last year (and he's an S!). We'd sort of forgotten where we were parked, we knew the general vicinity but not exactly where, so we were scanning the lot for the maroon Buick LeSabre he was driving at the time. We spot what we think is it, and he hits the remote entry on his key fob, and it's not working, not working, not working, and we're trying the doors, going, "What the heck." Finally it worked and we opened the doors and started to get in. Only then did we notice that there was stuff that wasn't ours in the car... and that the reason the remote entry had finally worked was because the actual owners of the car had come up and hit theirs!


    Wow was that ever embarrassing. I'm sure they thought we were drunk but we weren't! Oh yeah and we were also dressed as a pirate and a musketeer. Not that that's unusual at Fest, but the car's real owners were Danes (short for Mundanes, meaning not in costume) and I can only imagine what they were thinking.


    And as for the 4th one you posted... one of my colleagues once asked me to send him a document I'd been working on for work, and I accidentally sent him a personal document I had on my desktop. He emailed back and was like, "Uh... I think you sent me the wrong thing...". Yeah, that was awesome...

    One time I got off work and thought my car had been stolen. It was a big parking lot. I forgot where I parked. ..except when my boyfriend, who was the security guard, helped me find my car it was right where I was looking.

    I super-glued my fingers together, I forgot to pick up a huge order and I forgot I was going to wash my face and now my bathroom is flooded with water.

    At a shopping center
    Put my wallet in a plastic bag with my lunch rubbish in it (I wasn't even aware I did it), I of course forgot I put my wallet in there and I threw the bag in the bin.

    Everytime I buy a movie ticket, I store it somewhere I forget (especially if I'm with other people), sometimes I accidentally throw it in the bin with the ticket receipt.

    A few times I've almost walked out of shops holding things I haven't paid for (of course, they don't accept 'absent mindedness' as any valid excuse). I'm innocent I swear!

    I've left rags near the gas stove and they've caught on fire. I've burnt a fair few things in the oven too... because I become immersed in some other task.

    Not an N, but today while lost in thought, I walked into the kitchen and placed my soda can into the microwave instead of the refrigerator. I came back after a few seconds when something didn't feel right . I'm glad I didn't turn it on.

    You sound like me. Oh the stories I could tell... I once locked my car with the engine running at a gas station. Yikes.

    The interesting thing to me is the strange feeling you mentioned. Happens all the time. I can see something deep in our brain, like this little person tapping on our shoulder and telling us to wake up and stop daydreaming. But the person doesn't know exactly what's wrong. Like a warning bell or something.

    ^ Half the time I get that "strange feeling", other times I'll open my bathroom cabinet and find the granola bar I was looking for yesterday...

    I find OCD to be a good insurance against this kind of thing. Comes at a high price though.
