I'm having "The brain can't keep up week." I'm still waiting to get time off I asked for weeks ago, but other folks there have better reasons to bump me back, I guess. (like medical emergencies).
I've been so forgetful this week. I'm always in a rush n can't go back- too. I forgot to bring my phone when leaving for the day three times this week. The charger zone is too far from the door, so I don't have a visual reminder before locking up n leaving.
The tough day was the one I forgot to take my wallet out of the old pants the night before, n didn't realize until almost at the store that I had no money, ID of any kind, or a phone to help ID myself. I had to continue onward to get to work. I cancelled the errand stop, n wrote a note for my pocket about someone to call in case of emergency, taking a long time to recall a non-cell number without the contact list you don't need to memorize anymore, because of the phone doing it for you.
It was the same workday a supervisor threw a box in the storage area, which fell off a shelf then hit the fire-box alarm- pull station, which went off. It's really loud, with flashing lights. The fire department comes automatically n has to check n re-set it. So we all shut off our food machines n filed outdoors to wait. At least it wasn't freezing or rainy, n still light out.
It could've been a better break, but I was the last one out n had to hold open the self-locking, outer door for access to the fire-system reset box.
Life may go on, but I'm always affected. Perhaps I watched the show "M*A*S*H" too much in my childhood.
