I won’t even get started on this.
OK maybe I will.
I left my phone at home today.
I forgot what day of the week it is.
I invited a couple for shabbos, forgetting I had already invited someone else. Someone will have to sleep on the couch!
Met my friend today, but forgot her sons name. BH got through the conversation without it getting awkward.
I could go on and on. But that’s the least of my worries 😉 The rest of my brain is in good functioning order (I think).April 5, 2017 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #1251680zaltzvasserParticipant
I ran around frantically looking for my credit card*, which I had lost at a very popular tourist attraction.
It was in my pocket.

I tried paying with my buscard instead of my credit card at the pharmacy, and then I used my credit card instead of my buscard on the bus.April 6, 2017 1:15 am at 1:15 am #1251715IssacZoooss96Participant
Yeah! I know the feeling! We made a sholom zachor 2 weeks ago and on friday i brought the beer to the shuhl and i absentmindedly put the beer in the freezer! When we arrived back at the shuhl all the bottles of beer exploded and were cracked all over the freezer! Thank g-d my father-in-law is a chiller and we just laughed it out!
So don’t feel bad! We all experience some absentmindedness!
P.S. they say banana combined with afalfa sprouts helps get the mind going! (they only told me that after the beer story!)

But if your mind was already going, you would realize that that is a disgusting health-food combination that is not going to help! (No offense, IsaacZoooss96) (Your username takes really long to type!)April 6, 2017 7:50 pm at 7:50 pm #1252405DovidBTParticipant
Once when visiting an unfamiliar city, I parked in one of two or three parking garages that were close together. Then I forgot not only which level I parked on, but also which garage I parked in. (The parking ticket was generic and didn’t identify the garage.)April 7, 2017 12:26 am at 12:26 am #1252566I. M. ShluffinParticipant
I often forget how to act like an adult in public. My friends say they don’t know me when we’re walking together and I jump onto a street barrier.
Sometimes I think it’s Wednesday for 4 days straight.
After taking a test, I generally forget all the information I studied for 5 hours that morning. Ok, maybe that’s selective amnesia. But it’s not like I’ll ever need to know it again.
I’ve searched for my glasses for hours before realizing I was wearing them.
I wonder why it takes so long for my pot to boil. Then I realize I turned on the wrong burner. I now hallucinate about smoke alarms.
Never get in a car with me; I’m still working on the left versus right thing, as well as the brake versus gas.
I could go on and on with this list, but I forgot all my other incidents.
I’m at peace with my absent-mindedness, but it’s nice to know I’m not the only one 😉 Oh, the stove!April 7, 2017 8:02 am at 8:02 am #1252594WinnieThePoohParticipant
Does absent mindedness due to exhaustion count? Looked for an hour for a piece for the mixer before I realized I had put it away in the food processor box. Almost added confectioner’s sugar instead of potato starch to the apple kugel.
