I recently decided to make a very concious effort to not worry about remembering a million things – instead, all I had to remember were two things – 1) writing things down in my notebook – and 2) CHECK my note book.
It works, in theory – except last weekend I forgot my notebook at work. Now I have to remember at 3rd thing – always take my note book!!!
But my favorite recent forget, is; I had to pay for a vacation rental by bank draft, so thinking I was being very dilligent I sent it via registered mail. A few days later they still hadn’t received it, so when I went to look at my copy of the shipping slip, I realized I completely forgot to put the street address! Name, city, state and zip code…. but no street address. So my $900 was lost in the mail for several days because the postal service decided they just knew where it needed to go, and delivered it to a completely different address! Luckily I tracked it down, and the good samaritans on the other end actually mailed it back to me.REPORT ABUSE
