Thank goodness there’s a name for this disorder.
Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
This is how it manifests:
I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,
I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.
As I start toward the garage,
I notice mail on the porch table that
I brought up from the mail box earlier.
I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.
I lay my car keys on the table,
Put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table,
And notice that the can is full.
So, I decide to put the bills back
On the table and take out the garbage first…
But then I think,
Since I’m going to be near the mailbox
When I take out the garbage anyway,
I may as well pay the bills first.
I take my cheque book off the table,
And see that there is only one cheque left.
My extra cheques are in my desk in the study, So I go inside the house to my desk where
I find the can of Pepsi I’d been drinking.
I’m going to look for my checks,
But first I need to push the Pepsi aside
So that I don’t accidentally knock it over.
The Pepsi is getting warm,
And I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi,
A vase of flowers on the counter
Catches my eye–they need water.
I put the Pepsi on the counter and
Discover my reading glasses that
I’ve been searching for all morning.
I decide I better put them back on my desk,
But first I’m going to water the flowers.
I set the glasses back down on the counter ,
Fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote.
Someone left it on the kitchen table.
I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV,
I’ll be looking for the remote,
But I won’t remember that it’s on the kitchen table,
So I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs,
But first I’ll water the flowers.
I pour some water in the flowers,
But quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So, I set the remote back on the table,
Get some towels and wipe up the spill.
Then, I head down the hall trying to
Remember what I was planning to do.
At the end of the day:
The car isn’t washed,
The bills aren’t paid,
There is a warm can of
Pepsi sitting on the counter,
The flowers don’t have enough water,
There is still only 1 cheque in my cheque book,
I can’t find the remote,
I can’t find my glasses,
And I don’t remember what I did with the car keys.
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today,
I’m really baffled because I know I was busy all day,
And I’m really tired.
I realize this is a serious problem,
And I’ll try to get some help for it, but first I’ll check my e-mail….
Do me a favor.
Forward this message to everyone you know,
Because I don’t remember who I’ve sent it to.
Don’t laugh — if this isn’t you yet, your day is coming!
P.S. I don’t remember who sent it to me, so if it was you, I’m sorry

HAHAHA, that is hilarious! 😀 I may have seen it before, but… I don’t remember, lol!
One thing I’ve learned, if you want to get anything done, you must do it BEFORE getting online, ‘cuz once you connect to the WEB, it’s all over for the day!

This explains everything! No wonder my days are so full, yet I look around and see that nothing seems to get done.

Isn’t this normal??? this is how I operate every day no kidding, as I go thro my house one thing reminds me of another eventually it all gets done before I start all over again… it all does get done and looks organized and clean, much to my surprise!

I do the same kind of routine,but I usually end up in my shop repairing a drill or some other “Haven’t-needed-it-in-20-years” thing. Then I finish the day proud of finally getting the repair done while upset that there’s STILL a list of 14 other things I needed to do today and didn’t. Always fun the next morning looking for something I picked up in one place and carried to someplace else before setting it down to do something ELSE. (Why’s my coffee mug sitting on the fender of my truck?) Eventually I do a “Focus Day” and actually get things… Read more »

You know, Steve, I have a right to be notified when somebody hides a surveillance camera in my home. 😀

If only I could remember where I left my keys….somebody had to have taken them (absolution).
