I can be a quite forgetful person. Sometimes I forget to bring my handphone to work and sometimes I forget to bring my wallet. I think this is normal as everyone will tend to forget something in certain times. How about you? Have you forgotten something? What was the bad experience you ever had because of your forgetfulness? Please give some comment.Thanks for sharing.

I am not forgetful, but I try to do every action in present time, what I mean is that I just pay attention in what I am doing without thinking in something else!

Hello,Yenwie! If you don't have adequate sleep you develop forgetfulness.eat planty of meat,liver and vegetables rich in vitamin B6.proper brain exercise may also boost your memory power.in this age of seventy if i remember everything why not you.all the best.

The worst days for me are when I forget to bring my purse which includes both my wallet and my cell phone to where I am going. I didn't used to be forgetful at all but then my thyroid started acting funny and the doctor said that can be the cause of my recent bout of forgetfulness. Who knew? I'm on medication now and it seems to be helping.

I forget stuff all the time whether it be a place I had to go on a certain date and day and realized it after it was to late. I have also a habit of forgetting to bring my check book with me when I have to go out it bugs. Maybe if I learned to stop and think befor running out the door this wouldn't happen to me like it does lol.

o.0 sometimes when im in a hurry i always have the tendency to miss out something. either my phone, or my powder but so far i never forget my wallet... when i was in high school and elmentary my mom really get mad because i often forget to bring my homework or project and at times it need to be submitted 1st thing in the morning. =/ you're not alone and i think it's just normal, i believe we forget whenever we have other or so much things in head during that time.

I'm a normal person, so I will forget certain things sometimes, but not the very important thing. Normally to avoid the forgetful, I will write down the important things I need to do.

I believe we live in a time now that every thing is hurried, we don't have the time to stop and think before we leave the house. I know if I don't write it dowm or make a note and then where is the note. I forgot to call the place where my husband was suppose to have surgery, and make an appointment and that has delayed his surgery by about 2 months, they said they gave me a number to call, but as I was listing all they said to me in the little book that I have in my purse, there is nothing that says I should call this number. But she says it is me who forgot, with all that is going on I could at the time been thinking about something else that was happening and have to take care of and just missed it. There is not enough time in our days sometime to get all done that needs to be done.

No,yenwie.In fact I always remind myself what I should do today in the morning before going to school and what I should do tomorrow in the evening before going to bed.I think it is important for a person to be systematical and a systematical person can do every thing well easier than the person without plan.

I am very forgetful. I tend to forget to do anything unless I am reminded or unless I do it straight away. I also forget about places and people if I don't go there or see them very often. A few months ago I met a schoolmate of mind and I couldn't recognise her even after she reminded me.

Hi.. I am a quite forgetful person and at once, it cost my job because I was actually supposed to submit this report to another company but I forgotten all about it as I was rushing to meet my girlfriend for dinner.. The next things I know was that my boss called me and blasted at me.. I was too shocked to say anything and I just stood there and listen to him blasting at me... Even though I was not fired as he got another collegue to do it for me but i still resigned.... From that day onwards, I keep a notepad with me and always write down what I had to do in the following day...

Well i laso sees like always forgotterto do something, not only forget to bring my handphone and purse go to work but sometime i at home, i need to do something like let say take my supplement or wash something well i tends to forget easily to do those thing even everyday i work it. Maybe the forgetness habit is very closely to our age goes by. It is? Cause i see my nephew who is only 7 years old kid is very easily to remember what she had done in the last years but i am 32 years old, something, if u told me to explain back certain movie i have sees few day ago. It look like so trouble to me to explain it.

I think this is one of the 'hazzards' of motherhood, forgetting things all the time! I have forgotten pans on the hob, forgotten what it is I went to collect from upstairs by the time I am at the top of the stairs and I have also turned up to work when I shouldn't have! I now have to write things down as I remember them or it goes forgotten as soon as someone says 'mum!'

I did not use to be a forgetful person, but I am now. The worst thing I ever forgot was the date of a court appearance. So I went on holiday on the canaryislands when I was due in court. Not fun. It all worked out though and the case was deleyed until I got home.

Maybe it is also a sign of aging, hehehe I used to be forgetful specially when I'm in a hurry or in stress. Sometimes I forgot my eyeglasses and I will just noticed it when I already leave the house and figure out that I can't see in a normal view. Sometimes I also forgot my cell phone. That's why when I have something that in my mind I have to take down notes and post it whenever I can see it immediately.

I am forgetful sometimes. Once I went to a mall with the intention of buying many things. But after reaching there i realised that I had forgotten to carry my credit card. So I ended by buying just a few things with the little cash that I had carried with me. In this process I was forced to make a second trip to the mall after a few days.

I am a forgetful person either. When I was about to go in school or watever place I wanted to go there are always things that I used to forget, sometimes I always forgot to bring my cellphone and my wallet either thats why I have to get back again in our home which makes me late in my classes.

I remember things that at times I want to forget and I forget things that I want to remember.

[b]I'm an office in charge. I hold the key to our office. No one can go inside until i arrives. One rainy day, i wake late. I get up hurriedly and took shower. I didn't eat my breakfast. I vaulted outside the door into the bus. On the way i tried to find my key. It's nowhere to be seen. I hurried back home and get my keys. I was really annoyed of my self. From that moment on i always check things before i go.[/b]
