I turned my room inside out.

I searched between the couch cushions.

I looked in suitcases full of clothes.

I even looked in my car even though there was no way it’d be there.

Where’d I find those two gift cards & $7 in cash?

In the pocked of a hoodie, hanging from my door around midnight last night.

See, what had happened is that in the last month, I’ve lost two SmartTrip cards (Count them, TWO), one of them (the older one that I had reported lost to my work) appeared in the glove box of last week.  Then I lost it again…and found it Monday night in the pocket of pants that I had worn to work last week and put away with the SmartTrip in it. (D’oh.)

Then I lost two gift cards.  I can SEE them on my laptop in the living room. I can SEE myself getting up, grabbing all of my stuff and taking them up to my room.

I do NOT see myself putting those suckers in my pocket.

I thought I was losing my mind. Maybe I already have.

Considering I ‘lost’ my keys IN MY PURSE this morning.

Someone just lock me up right now and take away all shiny objects.

It is a miracle I find my way out of my bed every morning.

    I ‘lose’ shit all the time…..I think my house eats stuff, you want to honest!! LOL

    The best though, is when I’ll put on a pair of jeans that were washed to find $20 after a week of praying I make it to work on gas fumes….that’s the best!!!

    • PrincessQ October 7, 2009, 10:02 am

      The worst is when I lose that $20 WHEN I REALLY NEED IT!

      • Cassie October 7, 2009, 10:07 am

        that’s what I meant….it was my poor attempt at sarcasm, sorry!! LOL

          I think it works both ways

    Hate when that happens–and it gives me a horrifying vision of my future when I’m senile.

      Right? Seriously. I haven’t even hit 25 yet.

      Where am I?

  • Svaha October 7, 2009, 10:23 am

    My oldest daughter couldn’t find her butt with both hands. She once called me all flipped out because she couldn’t find her new phone. Wasn’t in her car, her apartment, her clothes, her friends car, nowhere. She wanted to know if she had left it at the house somewhere and could I look around. I asked her where she had it when she was here, blah, blah, blah.

    Ummmm, wait a second, are you calling from your old phone? ’cause the caller ID showed your name when you called. *crickets chirping* “OMFG I am SUCH an IDIOT!!!!”

    yeah, she was calling me from the phone she couldn’t find.

      I have done that.

  • Liebchen October 7, 2009, 10:36 am

    Oh god, I hear you. The worst part is that I live in a studio, and I still manage to misplace things. Where?! There’s only so much space!

    Just the other day I thought I’d lost my checkbook. Don’t worry, it was in a drawer for safekeeping.

      Oh…my room is TINY. Like, I can walk it in 4 steps. Literally.

  • shine October 7, 2009, 10:45 am

    This happens to me all the time about other things. But I have a really good memory for where stuff is, somehow. Why I walked into a room? Not so much…

    • PrincessQ October 7, 2009, 10:50 am


      I’ll just stand there and go “Why…” turn around, leave then remember.

      And repeat.

  • f.B October 7, 2009, 10:59 am

    My long-term memory is the stuff of legends. My short-term memory is miserable. Usually I just give in, sit down and stare into the middle distance until I can find any reason to justify why I walked into this room/where my earphones are/why I’m holding this box.

    • PrincessQ October 7, 2009, 11:10 am


      It’s scary. Really really scary. I can remember things vividly from when I was 6. Not so much from 6 minutes ago.

  • tinyshrimp October 7, 2009, 11:06 am

    Isn’t going to comment on this cuz you know waaaaaay to much about me.

    • tinyshrimp October 7, 2009, 11:07 am

      Awwww crap. I just responded as if I was on Plurk.

      • PrincessQ October 7, 2009, 11:09 am

        Point made.

        • tinyshrimp October 7, 2009, 11:34 am

          Shut it!

  • phampants October 7, 2009, 11:07 am

    In my old apt, I had to park on the street. Almost every morning, I could never remember where I parked the night before. The most embarrassing time was when I was standing right in front of my car as I looked up & down the street for it. That is until I hit the alarm and well…yeah…

    • PrincessQ October 7, 2009, 11:12 am

      This is why I text my car location to at least 2 people when I go out…

  • J October 7, 2009, 11:25 am

    I constantly lose my keys in my purse. And then I have 30 seconds of panic as I decide I’m fucked and someone’s going to break into my car and house and I’ll never be able to drive again and getting a new car key is expensive –

    And then I find them.

      I actually ran upstairs looking for my keys…granted, I remembered to take my two very overdue library books but still.

      I mean, really.

    If you often lose your SmartCards, I think you an register them online so if you lose it you don’t lose the value.

      Yeah, one was registered with work

  • MinD October 8, 2009, 5:09 pm

    I don’t tend to lose things. I tend to forget things, as in “grab the gift cards before heading to the mall,” then yelling shit loudly because I’m already on the highway and realize I left them behind. And I’m much too lazy to turn around.
