    When multitasking or when focusing intently on something while performing a mundane action, our bodies sometimes do funny things on their own when our minds are preoccupied.

    I was reading the latest posts in the CR, when I almost plugged my headphones into my hot cup of tea instead of into my mp3 player. πŸ™‚

    The other day I was thinking about something, and after pouring some water out of the hot water pot, I almost put the pot into the coffee pantry, instead of back on its heating base.

    Feel free to share your silly slip-ups of mindless multitasking and general space-outness.

    Saysme – lol! My 3 yr old son was caught with a marker in his mouth once, and his lollypop ‘coloring’ his picture.

    But the funniest was when I went out to play a hockey game with some friends, after helping my wife clean the house. When I got out of the car to go to the gym, I realized I packed the broom instead of my hockey stick!

    …and yes my hockey stick was in the broom closet back home. lol!

    i did another oops. Made myself a smoothie, put the yogurt in the pantry and when the cereal box didnt fit in the fridge, i realized why.

    My children and wife have witnessed me (at various times) putting the cereal box and the phone book in the fridge.

    If you’re looking for pure forgetfulness, I once pulled up to Toys-R-Us, dropped off my wife, parked the car, and went in. My wife looked at me and asked, “Where’s the baby?” I had completely forgotten that we had an infant in the car. Luckily, she was only in the car by herself for two minutes or so.

    All the posters on this thread MUST be men because women can multitask…

    Anyways, this guy came to hospital with two burned ears. “What happened” asked the doctor. He answered “my friend called me while I was ironing”. “But what about the second ear?”. “Well I had to call an ambulance!”

    I’ve taken the M train instead of the F train when I’m concentrating on doing homework. Same for B and D.

    I was on my cellphone walking and I just returned a rental car, so I was checking my pockets to make sure I didn’t leave anything. I could not find my phone in my pocket and started to get nervous that I left my phone in the car. It took a second or two to realize that I was actually using the phone and it was safely near my ear.

    Did any of you fellows check for early onset of alzheimers?

    Here’s an embarrassing one. It happened decades ago. I was 13 or 14 and I stayed up shavuos night in Lakewood Minyan. I was so tired I was like a zombie. During chazuras hashatz, I got up and went to the bathroom. When I came out, there was someone standing at the sink holding a full tepple of water kind of offering to pour on my hands. I was thinking how nice of him. He gave me a look like naah, and I shook my head like yaah,and he poured for me, (and then for all the kohanim waiting in line behind me.)

    Ah truthsharer! That just happened to me a few motZei shabboses ago. I wanted to text my husband that I was leaving the apartment to pick him up and with my phone in hand I frantically searched everywhere for it, I even began to text him that I couldn’t find my phone and then I realized.. That I was an idiot!

    bsd, morahrach-lol! Classics.

    A good couple of years back, phone rang as i was sitting down to supper. With my fork in hand, i picked up the receiver and said, Boruch Attah … I was so embarrassed and couldnt even apologize mid bracha. Since then, i dont pick up the phone during supper

    Used my home phone to call my cell phone because I couldn’t find it. Heard my cell phone ring and ran like crazy to get it so I shouldn’t miss the call.

    Called some one while multi-tasking, and by the time the person picked up I couldn’t remember who I was calling.

    lol. i don’t remember any other thread i laughed out loud so hard as this one.

    curiousity: +1 for starting this one.

    i guess there is always a silver lining even to embarassing moments, moments when you just want to bury yourself right then and there. just type it here in the cr and give someone a good laugh. thanks to everyone here, i really needed a laugh today as i am going through tough times, and your bravery for coming out and posting these funny stories are greatly appreciated.
