Going through the Motions
At work we put the freshly brewed coffee into a carafe that keeps it thermos hot all day.
The other morning at work I poured coffee in a mug, added creamer, and went on with my business. Not long after that someone else went to get coffee.
Where was the coffee? It was no where to be seen.
Finally, someone looked in the fridge in the lunch room and EUREKA, there it was. Everyone laughed at and with me.
The laughter continued as each person admitted to their own distracted actions. The most common one was the early morning milk in the cupboard and cereal in the fridge. There were some other misplaced items that had people perplexed and amused.
However, we all agreed that our co-worker Dan won the prize for the strangest one of all.
He opened his fridge early one morning to discover his iron.
What have you put away where it didn't belong?
I was mindlessly doing the end of the day straightening after the baby's bath, and I threw my glasses in the dirty close hamper.
swampwitch My comment is the very latest of things I put away where it didn't belong.I was so enthralled reading that you do silly things with coffee,too, I forgot where I was.
Kellie One time I found the jar of peanut butter in my laundry room cabinets. I think that might have been the work of a certain 4 year old, but i'm not sure.
Tiggerlane My cell phone has legs, I do believe. I find it in the strangest places. I actually found it in my oversized coffee cup one time - destroyed, of course
Vicki Once the cordless phone was lost. We could hear it ring but not find it. It was in the freezer next to the ice tray. ?? I told this to a lady once here at the shop, she had lost her keys (again). She said she had me beat. The day before her and her husband were in the kitchen, he opened the drawer to reach for a fork and there was a banana in there. They laughed and blamed each other. Neither remembered doing it.
Kathleen Marie Ha! Hubby recently found a bath towel in the fridge (no it was not mine) I have found the milk in the cupboard and to this day we all know 'The Ghost of Aunt Tilly did it!
Willowtree About a year ago I did something so regularly that I honestly started to get concerned. In the morning when I made coffee, I would grab the Coke instead of the milk. I would realise what I'd done only after the Coffee didn't go white, every time
local girl Remember when I wore 2 different shoes all day?
Pass the Torch I put the milk in the cupboard all the time.
Melissa Everybody in the military and their spouses have to carry a military ID card and it's in my back pocket right now. Mailing Christmas cards I mailed my ID card with the stack of cards. The postal worker who had to dig through the mail bin was not amused.
James Burnett I do have a habit (at least once a month) of misplacing the remote and finding later I've put it in the fridge, usually in the vegetable crisper. Not sure, but I think there may be something Freudian going on there.
Claudia last week, I put my wallet into someone else's photo bag. Talk about a brain fart!! but i'm always misplacing things!
Coffeypot I hate it when I am trying to find my glasses and then realize I have them on. Now how did that happen?
heather (Goodman) Man, be careful what you say on Pam's blog.
Matt Left his comment on the wrong blog ??

Gday Pamela I missed place my Cordless home phone had to use my Mobile to Find it. I must have gone to the kitchen pantry to get something out and left the phone shut in the pantry
Robin Noooo, I've N E V E R done anything like that, contrary to you and all your readers....!
Biker Betty When not thinking, a few times I have been known to put refridgerated items in the food pantry. Once my youngest son actually caught me in the process of doing just that and now thinks his mom's a little weird, lol.
How about switching bedrooms and continually going back to the old one (e.g. after going the bathroom at night). :-) (that might be a problem if you had guests staying over..pam)
