I've also done stuff like this, and had to pick something out of the bin that was supposed to go in something I'm gonna eat.

I've also put random gooseberry fool into the fridge, including cups of tea, instead of taking something out of it, like the milk. Then I can't find where I put the tea.

Probably the most annoying thing I do is pour out the wrong tea in the evening e.g. Normal tea instead of chamomile or vice versa in the mornings. The latter is expensive so I something leave it there for a whole day and just microwave it before bed. Plus I only boil enough water for one cup (as I takes 30 seconds and saves energy), so I have to top up the kettle and boil it again. All this time I'm standing there shaking my head and tutting like the old man next door. I must be going senile early.

To be honest, this is actually all real disability and memory problems stuff, thankfully I get some help now so it doesn't take me 40 minutes to make two cups of tea or eat some cereal and I can get on with my day and stop wasting my life doing basic gooseberry fool.

The other week I walked in to the front room and put the big sugar jar on my little table instead of putting my cup of tea down.

When I was about 20 I once put the kettle in the Fridge rather than the milk.

I was smoking a lot back then.

I've done stuff like this in the past. But it's never been anything more than a minor inconvenience (like I forget to grab the food I've prepared before leaving the kitchen or something).

My big offender is half making tea, for example putting the water in the cup and walking off forgetting I started doing it.

You're not one of those people who put the milk in first too are you? :dread:

No, if I did I would put the milk in then walk away. The issue is I go to get the milk from the fridge I guess and get distracted by something and forget. :lol:

I once poured hot water into my cereal instead of into my tea cup.

I once accidentally dipped my sponge finger into the chocolate mousse instead of the pink Angel Delight.

Having to deal with the GP surgeries and getting help for a medical problem.

Ring them to make appointment, gotta get through the secretary first. This is nearly always a strawberry floating ordeal.

Get different doctor from the last one who doesn't actually pay any attention to what the last one tried, ultimately fobs you off for another week. DRINK WATER.

I hate having to go anywhere near that place.

The surgery here is even worse, 20 mins+ on hold, only to be told by reception to wait for a call, then you have to wait at least another hour before someone rings, then you have to literally beg to see someone in person after they try and fob you off over and over again. Finally, when you do get to see someone (a nurse, as they won't let anyone see an actual doc), they find it's an issue which could not be diagnosed over the phone (which had the fobbing off been successful, it would have gotten worse and worse), then write a prescription for meds which run out after just a couple of days and so the issue remains untreated, cue the cycle beginning all over again.

This actually happened to me last autumn. My mouth infection lasted months because it wasn't treated properly.

Oh and don't forget, after the prescription for meds is issued, the chemist will tell you it'll be ready in two hours, so you hike into town at stupid o'clock only to find it won't be ready for at least another few hours.

Also, because the mouth infection wasn't treated properly and so decided to stick around, when i went back for the third time, i was faced with an overly zealous nurse who decided that i needed testing for pretty much every horror diagnosis imaginable including cancer and HIV.

It's hardly surprising my mental health collapsed.

I've found it impossible to see a doctor now I spend 5 out of 7 days in a different city to where I live, so if it's a recurring or obvious problem I get treatment from online pharmacies and don't bother with an actual diagnosis/prescription. Got some antibiotics from an online pharmacy last week, there's basically no checks, just tick the right boxes. Obviously it's not good for a lot of things but for some it's handy.

My one is that so often I'll be making tea and fairly early in the process get the teaspoon out ready because I'm a well prepared tea maker. But then later when I'm grabbing the milk I'll get another teaspoon out so I'm stood there with two strawberry floating teaspoons like a fool!

Happens about 25% of the time! :lol:

And I don't even drink tea, this is just when making it for my wife! :fp:
