Last day before college, just did laundry. Normally I am very careful to check the pockets of my pants. And I thought I was today as well. But I forget to check the jeans that I had worn today and ended up getting my cell phone and wallet washed.
Oh well, no emoticon from me. Do you guys have any absent-minded horror stories?
Yeah, I've done exactly what you did before. Er...pretty much everything that's gone wrong in my life had to do with absent-mindedness. Second would be flakiness.

Travelled like 14 hours to go back to my country last year, without having avised anyone on my arrival, passed through airports, trains and buses to finally reach to my village at 4:00 a.m., only to realise that I hadn't even thought about bringing my keys, nor did I have a working cellphone or something, and the only way to enter the house would be to knock very hard the door and scare everybody, since they didn't know I would be coming
My absent mindedness is all about the missing of crucially important appointments, however I recently bought myself 3 cork pin boards (large), and I stick up a copy of the appointment on each one, one is in the hallway, one is above the desk, and the other is in my bedroom, so that no matter what I can't forget lol.
I have never put money or anything valuable in the machine, I am way too poor to take that risk.

I would say a little under $4000 equivalent monetarily.
No relationships or opportunities lost, thankfully.
However, my absent-mindedness comes from pre-occupation with my agenda. In this sense, my absent-mindedness, costs me my mind, or at least my mindfulness, each time.
