I couldn't figure out how my washer got done so far ahead of my dryer.... Then I went to put the clothes from the washer in the dryer. DUH I hate it when I do that!

I don't forget to turn it on, but I sometimes forget to close the lid. I put the soap in and start it and it fills up while I am putting the clothes in. I guess I get distracted and forget to close the lid.

I did that when I had a top loader too. Now that I have a front loader I don't do that any more. :) YOu are so right, the smallest distractions can make me forget what I was doing.

I do this with the dishwasher all the time. I load up the dishes and put the soap in and then forget to press the button. After a while then I go back to put away all the clean dishes and they are still dirty. Arrrghhh! Probably I would do that with the clothes, too, except that my hubby does most of the laundry. He does leave the clothes in the dryer though and I don't like them all crumpled up0, so I am the one who goes to get them out once they are dry.

Yes, and its not a rare thing. It happens a few times. Luckily I've gotten better with it since childhood but it still happens.
