To understand today’s post, it helps to read yesterday’s. But it isn’t obligatory (phew!). Yesterday I wrote about things that annoy me beyond belief. I listed four that came to mind immediately. Today, a few people asked me what #5 was. Hmmmm……
#5 is special, because it’s a double-whammy. Are you ready, ladies and gentlemen?
#5 is ME.
So, not only do I get mad at what happens, I get mad because it’s me doing it. The main problem is I’m waaaaay ADHD. So I misplace and forget almost everything. The double-whammy is that I can’t find what I’m looking for and I’m mad at myself for not being able to find it. Please tell me that this happens to some of you.
Here’s an extreme example. Last Monday I went to the girl’s bathroom at school to wash my hands before lunch. I put my coffee and my iPhone on the shelf and washed my hands. I then walked out of the bathroom and to my office to have lunch. About 30 minutes later I started asking everyone if they had seen my phone. I knew it was right around me. So I looked next to my computer, by my desk, in my classroom….
Then, the moment of horror. I remembered putting it down in the bathroom. I raced down the hall, and there on the metal shelf in the bathroom, was my coffee. Just my coffee. My iPhone wasn’t there. MY IPHONE WASN’T THERE.
Someone had taken my iPhone. Stolen. As in it wasn’t turned into the office. And whose fault was it? Mine. Of course, there as no sign on it that said “steal me.” But leaving an iPhone in a school bathroom? Who does that?
#5 is me.
