Once I made chicken soup - simmered the carcass for hours with lots of vegetables. Then, when it was all nice and tasty I grabbed a colander and poured all the liquid down the sink. I just stood there for about 5 minutes, staring at the bones trying to remember what the next step in soup-making was.
I recently went to a gas station near my apartment with the intention of buying gas. It was a rare occasion, as I actually had cash (I normally pay for everything on debit). I walked up to the station and gave the man£10. I then proceeded to walk back to my car, get inside, and drive away. It was about five minutes later, on the highway, that I realized that I hadn't actually pumped any gas. I was too ashamed to go back.
I once forgot to take out my contacts before going to bed. I woke up, put on my glasses as usual, and freaked...out, because everything was blurry. Tried cleaning my glasses, nothing would help. Spent about 5 minutes freaking out, thinking I was going blind or something
The pipe underneath the sink was leaking so I had placed a bucket to catch all the water. When the bucket was getting full, I emptied it out on the same sink
'll be talking on my cell, and by habit, I pat my pockets to make sure I have my wallet, keys, and cell in their respective places. So yes, while talking on the phone I start freaking out because I can't find my phone.
I opened the door to my apartment building and then got to my front door and realized that I didn't have my keys. I panicked and retraced my footsteps over the previous two miles (including going to numerous stores and asking if anyone had handed in any keys) before giving up and returning home. When I got there I found my keys hanging from the front door of my apartment building. It never occurred to me that I must have used my keys to get into the building in the first place.
I was watching TV but felt like a drink, so I got up and walked with the remote to the fridge. I looked in the fridge and saw a bottle of milk that I wanted so I placed the remote in the fridge, closed the door, and walked back to the television. When I got back in the living room I had the feeling something was off, and remembered I didn't drink any milk yet. So I turn around, open the fridge, took a big sip of milk straight from the bottle, and place the bottle back next to the remote. Half an hour later the show's over and I want to change the channel but I can't find my remote. I looked under all the cushions of the couch and chairs, I scoured through every last inch of the living room before giving up and switching channels manually.
left work (big huge downtown city), and took the train home for a much needed weekend. Got to my stop, and discovered I had driven. Had to catch another train back to work, get car, drive home. Entire transit time went from 30 minutes to 3 hours and 30 min. Duh.
Funny Tale of a Lost Senior Citizen Funny Senior Moments
When I went to lunch today, I noticed an old man sitting on a park bench sobbing his eyes out. I stopped and asked him what was wrong.
He told me, 'I have a 22 year old wife at home. She rubs my back every morning and then gets up and makes me pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and freshly ground coffee.'
I continued, 'Well, then why are you crying?'
He added, 'She makes me homemade soup for lunch and my favourite biscuits, cleans the house and then watches sports TV with me for the rest of the afternoon.'
I said, 'Well, why are you crying?'
He said, 'For dinner she makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my favourite dessert and then we cuddle until the small hours.'
I inquired, 'Well then, why in the world would you be crying?'
He replied, 'I can't remember where I live.'
