My Pet Peeve ~ Forgetfulness
Day 25 — My biggest pet peeve that has nothing to do with blogging, being online, computers or anything else related to the Internet is…
I just cannot stand my forgetfulness. It is so self-defeating, that i cannot tell. I dont remember where i have kept something, i last kept half an hr before. I keep looking and searching for it, over and over again. Under the cushions, inside the cupboard, under the clothes. In the most weird places. You name it, I look there.
I become super religious when I lose my things. I pray extra hard, my heat beats faster, I am more desperate. Thinking that God can know, where I kept my things. And many times, it works. I have recovered things from the most unlikely places, which I had lost months before.
I seriously have no idea why I am cursed with this. I misplace my keys, my spectacles, my purse, my pens, .. Sometimes, they may even be in the same place, But I have forgotten.
I have caused a lot of loss to people I love because of my habit. I lost my house keys, I lost my father’s wallet with valuables and 200 $, simply because I put the wallet down at a bus stop and forgot to take it with me. It left me with a severe feeling of guilt.
IT is strange and queer that while I can remember the most extraordinary facts and academic things and I can concentrate on anything involving reading and music, I am so poorly equipped for the normal things in life. So awkward and clumsy.
This is the biggest peeve I have regarding myself. Though I use lists and things nowadays to keep track of my things, there is a long long way for me to go.Sigh.
