You know, some of us just can’t bring ourselves to remember even the simplest of tasks.
- I can remember a homework assignment I did for my tenth grade italian class, but I can’t remember what flavor ice cream my wife asked for at the supermarket.
It’s that kind of trivial stuff that drives myself and others nuts, simply because I can’t remember it! I can usually make up for losing track of these small requests on the “honey do” list, but this recent mistake will be paid for in the years to come! See, I was in my garage when I noticed that there was an empty box for an air filter sitting near my trash bin. I didn’t recognize anything of it at first, so I just walked out of the garage to my motorcar to go to work. As I drove to work, I couldn’t help but recognize that air filter box was important – but I couldn’t remember why! All morning at work, I debated calling my wife to ask about the box, but I kept deciding not to call since I didn’t want her to recognize I was stupid. I lost track of time, & the end of the morning called for myself and others to head home. It wasn’t until I pulled into the garage that I realized why the air filter box was out! We had upgraded the air filter over a year ago, & my wife used the outdated box to remind myself and others that I needed to change the air filter againâ€¦ Without hesitation, I pulled right out of the garage & went straight to the hardware store. I’m lucky my air conditioner method still works as it should!
