Losing things (including my mind!)

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I was reading Susies thread about losing the car in the parking lot and was thinking that its one of the few things that I don't lose! Charlie thinks I'm crazy, 'cause I lose everything, while he rarely ever does....case in point.....The Saturday that we buried his mom, I lost my set of keys to our new car sometime after we came home........I found them finally the NEXT Saturday, (Christmas), but promply lost his set that same day! I didn't find his for two weeks, he was about ready to kill me! Please ladies and gentlemen, help me out here, tell me I'm not the only one that loses things???

My boyfriend thinks im constantly lying because he would give me his car keys and then ask me "where did you put my keys?" and i would protest that "he hadnt given them to me"
But im not lying ive just lost it in my head and dont recall him givin them to me untill a few mins later !

No your ok Cindy your not the only one!.

Just before christmas i filled the freezer box with the food out of the freezer so i could clean it out and stock up.

I need glasses for when i read a magazine or a book and had been reading one on the day i defrosted the freezer.

Later on in the day i couldn't find my glasses and i went from room to room, i even went outside into the bin "several" times thinking i'd threw them out with something because i'm one of these people who does 3 things at once!.

I must have been looking for them for over 2 hours and i even thought Rosie and Sophie had them.

Eventually i sat down and calmly retraced my foot steps like i should have done in the first place!

And low and behold i found them!, in the freezer box that i had carried back upstairs to put away

Well, let me reassure you that you are not the only one. I have to say it's not me, but Jerry that loses things constantly! Then it always seems to be my fault that he can't find it!

I'm with you, Cindy! I think it's because I am always thinking of a million other things and not paying attention to the mundane things like where I'm putting my keys, etc. Women are multi-taskers. I think men usually only focus on one thing at a time so they are more apt to remember stuff like that (IMHO)

Can I just say that my boyfriend and I BOTH have the worst memories. We're constantly repeating stories to each other because we can't remember that we've told them.

I think I'm a multi-tasker, like Chris said most women are. Instead of listening, I read emails, play with my cat, organize stuff... and thus get confused. Did I just say thus?

I lose my keys all the time; and sometimes I even throw Zack's keys in my purse by accident...and then when I am at work he calls me and asks me where his keys are...I had to actually go home the other day and give him his keys back so he could leave for work!

I not only "lose" my keys, I forget that I have them in my hand and run all over the house tearing it apart to find them... Same with my sunglasses, on the top of my head...
I have done both more than once

I lose patience and can't seem to find it anywhere.

I have a friend who loses everything. Everything. She can't find bills, car keys, important papers, photos. I get tired watching her search!

I have a terrible memory when it comes to all things like that!! I think it is because I am either not paying attention or it is one of those automatic things we do.

I usually automatically lock my car when I get out, but I have to check to make sure that I will remember later on (or I panic!)

I am literally losing everything!! It takes me so long to leave the house, as I try to get everything ready, then either forget that I have got them or put them down somewhere else....everyone thinks that I am a little disorganised or that I am faffing!!

It looks as though we're all pretty similar!!

I actually have a good memory for information, but a TERRIBLE memory for where I put things. For example, the machines in our laundry room take these cash cards rather than quarters and literally every Sunday before we go downstairs to do the laundry I have to turn the apartment upside down looking for my card. And I am constantly buying lip balm, because I always lose them, and then periodically about 6 of them will turn up at the same time.

It's certainly not just you, Cindy, in fact, I'm so relieved to hear so many of us share this situation! I lose things constantly, my keys, pen, car, watch, phone, water bottle... You're not losing your mind, Cindy! It could be just that you are overextended in so many different directions, it's just impossible to keep up with everything!

Heehee, that's not a problem, 'cause I don't have any of it to lose in the first place!

I loose everything. if it weren't for Brad, I'd never make it out of the house. The ironic thing is, I can keep my best friend organized . I have no Idea why I can keep her organized and I can't find anything at my house to save my life. Maybe we are all put on this Earth to help someone else stay organized???

Of all the things I've lost - I miss my mind the most!

Seriously, my husband is always laying things down and forgetting where he put them. I get so frustrated - it takes forever to get ready to do anything or go anywhere. He is so focused on what he plans to do that he isn't aware of the fact he has something in his hand. I'll find the TV remote anywhere from the kitchen to the bathroom or bedroom. I have to hunt it up to change channels. When he was laying the new hardwood floor, one of the guys helping him would pick up his measuring tape every time he laid it down somewhere and put it in his own pocket - then when my husband started looking for the tape measure, his friend would hand it to him.

I have been known to buy Christmas presents early and forget where i hid them!

I'm one of those neurotics who double and triple checks that she's got her keys, tickets, ID, etc., so I rarely lose things. I do have a funny "lost car" story, though. When we (my siblings and I) were teenagers, our family ended up with five cars and a truck parked in a long, narrow driveway. One afternoon I ran to the nearby mall for something, and took my brother's car, since it was parked behind mine, and I was too lazy to switch cars around. I did my shopping, and drove home. An hour or so later I got a frantic call from my brother. He was at the police station, reporting my car stolen from the mall parking lot, and needed the license plate and registration numbers. Since I'd taken his car, he'd taken mine. I looked out the dining room window, and saw my car sitting in the drive. All I could think of to say was, "You didn't happen to see your car in the lot, did you?"
Another time I managed to "steal" a car. We had a white VW Golf. I came out of the supermarket, unlocked the car, loaded my groceries, and drove about two blocks before I realized that I wasn't in our car. I drove back to the supermarket, only to find a very irate man standing next to our car. We had the same year, model, and color, and our keys were interchangeable! After that, I put several bumper stickers on the car, and always checked the license plate.

OMG!! --Jcat!!!
I could TOTALLY see myself doing the car-exchange thing!!!
I am the OFFICIAL Queen of Post-It Notes, as they are EVERYWHERE, to remind me what needs what... where things are... what needs to be done...etc...etc..
Without them I cannot remember a THING!!!
My friend Cheryl told me, "Oh let your mind just go... It is much more relaxing without it!!" hahahaha

My bf's sister once drove their mom's car to Dunkin Donuts and when she came out of the store, got into the driver's seat of a complete stranger's car in the parking lot. I guess the guy must have left his door unlocked. Anyway, she's sitting there trying to figure out why she can't get the key in the ignition when the owner of the car comes up to the door. She realized her mistake, totally panicked, dropped all her change on the floor of the car, jumped out of the car going I'm sorry, I'm sorry, and ran away.

Cindy.

I don't lose things but I do lose thoughts all of the time! It gets so frustrating. I'll open my mouth to say something but somewhere in between having the thought in my head and opening my mouth to say it,the thought just vanishes and I have absolutely no idea of what I was about to say!
