891: Leaving your wallet in the car at the check out line

Go to fullsize image

Nothing says I’m just as forgetful as all get out when you’ve checked out a grocery cart full of items and then at the moment the total is chimed that you realized you left your wallet in the car.  All you have is a quarter in your pocket.  As you frantically search your pockets you are stunned to realize that it fell out of your pocket in the small space in the crack of the car.  Nice!

Don’t dare turn back to look at the long line behind you at the after work shopper’s rush.  The guy behind you isn’t glaring at you but think how awfully much of a dummy you are for forgetting.

894: Medications with More Side Effects than Benefits

Go to fullsize image

One would think that with the recent approval about to close on the national health care plan for everyone to be insured you’d think they would have a firm handle on drugs.  The medication commercials seems to frighten me more than what I’d hope it could do.  I can attest that every time I see one of the commercials I just tend to glare off the TV so I can think when the show will come on because I don’t think I’d care to listen to 14 side effects some that after hearing I think “why bother?”.

The best thing to do with friends is when a commercial such as  that comes on is to guess what possible side effects the new-found miracle drug will have.  Suicidal thoughts, diarrhea, itchy blotchy skin – oh run to the doctor and sign me up!  Now how awful* is that?!

899: When someone waves at you, but doesn’t

Go to fullsize image

So you’re sitting in the cafeteria area of the mall and you’re waiting for your friend to meet you at the mall.  You just ordered a slammin’ burger at the BK Lounge and you are just chompin away when you see someone wavin’ at you at the mall.  It looks like your friend and you put down your sandwich and smile and wave back. Then you see the person give you an uncertain smile only to turn back and look that the wave wasn’t for you it was for someone behind you.  Embarrassing…

Other bad waves of excitement:

* The “You, Me, Are you sure?!” wave: you’re walking at the mall and someone you see waves at you from a floor above you stop and look around and then you point at yourself confused and then the person stalls shakes their head yes and then you oddly wave back to get either a hello or just a odd smile back with them waving back.  There went that cute date goodbye.

* The “Waiter I’m not calling you here!” wave:  The wave where you see your friend come by as you’ve saved them a seat and you motion them over and the waiter comes over asking if you need something…no no I don’t…

* The “I’m NOT wavin’ at you!!” wave: You’re exiting the theater and through the cattle call rush out of the theater after the credits are rolling your friend stops and you wave them back to you and as they step to the side someone looks back and confusingly waves to you.  Then you just wave them to the side and they continue to look confuse as you finally walk to your friend then glare at the person who tried waving at you.

* The “Hi neighbor.” wave: The elderly person that gives you the smug smile and waves at you from the side of the road as you drive by lost looking for your friend’s house

* The “Argh forget it” wave: You’re just tired of trying to explain your point, just forget it and wave it on by to totally dismiss your point!

* The “Oops I didn’t mean to cut you off” wave: Yeah thanks for driving closely with your cheesy smile and minutes from a near fatal accident.

* The “I meant goodbye not come here and talk to me for 10 minutes…I’m in a rush” wave: Yeah, I meant to discreetly say hi, not motion you over for lunchtime chatter.

Just awful altogether.

903: People Who Can’t Make Up Their Mind

Thanks to Justin J:

“An awfully annoying moment is when people can’t make up their mind at a convenient time.  Like you’re driving towards someone’s house cause they want you over to hang out and 3/4ths of the way there they tell you that they’re sorry that they can’t hang out.  So you turn back and half way home from the point you turned around then they change their mind and then they say come back.

So you decide to park to make sure that they are sure about what they have decided and they take 20 minutes to decide and end up saying I’m sorry again I can’t hang out after all.  I have work in the morning it’s getting late we can hang out some other time.”

What is that all about?!  When that other time is…who knows?  Why they changed their mind…who knows?  But what we do know is that this is awfully annoying and isn’t any bit cheap on gas!

943. Locking yourself out of car/home

 Go to fullsize imageIn a rush, who isn’t these days? Well nothing is just worse than being in a rush out of the door to realize you left your portfolio on your kitchen counter and the house keys in the change dish in your bedroom. Guess they’ll be no getting inside right now.

Even better is that none of your neighbors or home, your friend that has your spare is not answering their phone and that really important job interview you have is in an hour. It’ll be okay because you left the number to the company inside the portfolio.

Guess now would have been a great time to have invested in a credit card.

Flipping the story here…

You spend a great summer’s day at a theme park with your friends and you are returning back to the parking lot and when you get to your car you start reaching in your pocket to only find that you can’t find your keys…oh no…you freeze for a moment and think no wait it’s in my other pocket…feel around…nope. Oh boy! The deep sickening feeling is starting to settle where was I last with the key. At the restaurant where I had set them out hours ago to take my wallet out and get my Speed Line pass out of my pocket and check my cell.

As you check you jacket, tearing it off in worry you begin to panic and as you are standing there you start walking around wondering and panicking. You start looking in the car and don’t see the keys anywhere under the seats from what you can see., but there they are dangling nice waving at you.

Did you hear that they are laughing at you?! Well better go find a hanger. AAA anyone?! Great, how awfully unnecessary is this? Hopefully unlocking an evening of waiting and failed attempts trying to get back in your car and/or home.

As you and your comrades starts walking over, one friend says what’s that shiny thing on the car, as you walk over it’s your keys. As you grab them and let out such a great sigh of relief and buy a clip to keep them clipped to your pants.

945. Forgetting your password to a rarely used email account

Well I am sure I spelled it this way right?

Nope? Wrong!

Hmm…

I swore that’s how it was spelled, I guess it does pay to check into the site and not have it memorized by my computer after auto login for 8 months.  Guess that’ll never do.  When you just can’t simply remember it doesn’t pay off to send the somewhat important mail inquiries to a lesser known account.

How awful is that…or at least I think I recall it being that way…?!

949. When you walk somewhere in a place and forgot why you walked there

Such a busy busy day at home and work and while at the office you are the ruler of the day getting things accomplished and you are just achieving task after task!  Pile on the work because it’ll get done!! As you are multi tasking one thing after the other you sip on your Starbucks Grande Vanilla Chai Latte and walk towards the storage room and then stop and stand there looking around…now why did I come in here?!

Hmmm… can’t remember…. oh well back to your routine of the day and as you finally get home and as you are standing in the kitchen then it hits you!

Paper clips! PAPER clips…   PAPER CLIPS!!!Go to fullsize image

Now how awful is that to now remember hours later?!
