So I sent my mum a birthday card

And then this afternoon, caught myself trying to dial out on a calculator. I'd got as far as the area code before I realised I was clutching the incorrect implement to make a phone call. 

Please tell me you all do this stuff too?



  • I discovered that I cannot change the channels on the tv with my phone

    Its an age thing   image

  • Actually there may be an app for that. 


    Changing channel not your ageimage

  • My car key alarm button does not unlock the back door of the house

  • I prepared for the roast lamb sunday lunch by defrosting a pork joint overnight.
  • And my phone doesn't work very well as a mouse

  • I used lip stick to cover up a spot instead of concealer on Monday image

    image I haven't done anything silly yet, but then I'm still young...ish.

    However, it was my birthday on Monday and my dad called me in the morning, talked about this and that, even mentioning the birthday card he sent me, then he rang off. An hour later he called to say happy birhtday...

  • I went to put a dirty mug in the freezer instead of the dishwasher.

  • My OH once went out for a run, very usefully taking his locker key with him instead if his house key.

    Cue journey all the way back home from work to let him in image

  • Used key board in the office as dial code errrrrrrr more than once , quick look round incase anybody spotted meimage



  • Come to think of it I did try to put the kettle in the fridge.  Really couldn't work out why the bloody thing wouldn't go in image

  • I was looking for my toothbrush replacement heads the other day, was about to accept that I forgot to pack them, then I found them in the fridge...

  • I've narrowly avoided emptying the tea cup warming water in the dustbin rather than the sink a number of times.

    The late Christopher Martin-Jenkins (cricket commentator) notably took the TV remote control from his hotel room rather than his mobile phone.

  • I found my packed lunch in the freezer recently. Wouldn't be so bad if it hadn't been salad!

    I get my train ticket out to get into my office, get my work pass out to get into my house...  

    I've been known to throw a pair of socks in the the bin instead of the washing machine.

    I locked myself out once after making sure I had my key in my hand before I closed the door, but then found that it was my car key.

  • Couple of months back I rinsed my mouth out with neat floor cleaner instead of mouthwash - wasn't nice - well they were both green so easy mistake. 

  • It's a daily campaign to see where MrGFB has left his iPhone....can't tell you how many times that thing has gone AWOL!

    I do get my work pass and travel pass mixed up quite a lot. It's usually trying to use my travel pass to get into the office rather than vice versa though, so I suspect the reason isn't very deep in my subconcious! image

  • I went for a night out and had to go home at around 9 with burning armpits (and more) I jumped back into the shower and afterwards found my wife's suede shoe cleaner right where I normally keep my spray deodorant 

  • My mum once bought a silver hairspray. My dad used that as a deodorant - armpit hair in fashion colours anyone? image

    Trying to open the garage door with the car key - doesn's sound so bad unless you know that in the 9 years we've lived at our house, the car has never been in the garage.

    Picked up my stapler when the phone rang a couple of weeks ago.

    Very nearly put Ibuleve gel on my toothbrush.

    So many more, if only I could remember them..................

  • A few years back Mrs C and I were wondering why we were getting strange looks in the supermarket while we were asking each other if they'd found the Dolphin Freindly Corned Beef yet..... image

    Too many occasions when I've tried blipping the car key to open the front door.

    Flapping a credit card on the reader at work

    getting the fridge, the freezer, the oven, and the dishwasher confused. It's a lucky dip at times. 

    Mrs C stopped me from putting a fork full of my tea in my mouth by pointing at the floor where the dogs were happily demolishing my plate of food and then pointing to their bowl of food on the side.....

    Think I'd better stop there!

    If reality matched intention I'd know I was dreaming
  • well tried putting dirty dishes in the fridge and the milk in the dishwasher but they are next to each other.

    My mother accidently mixed up 'witch hazel' with 'optrex'.

    That woke her up alright.

    Just been informed by my wife about someone who mixed eyedrops and super glue.


  • Today I am wondering why a delivery hasn't turned up yet.  Upon investigation it appears that I shut the web page before pressing the 'Place order' button.  That might explain it

  • I am so glad to hear I am not the only one to do such things, I feel quite normal now.

  • Does running cause dementia? Discuss image

  • I carried 6 carrier bags of shopping home on the bus before remembering I had left the car I had bought the day before in the supermarket car park. image

    Oh lord......why is the smiley wearing a Santa hat ???????????? 

  • I seem to have forgotten to eat
