Have you been so Deep in Thoughts that you Throw away Important things?

I have thrown away a $2 note before. It happened after I receive my change and receipt from the cashier. I was so Deep in my own Thoughts that instead of throwing away my receipt, I threw away the $2 note. I only realized it a few hours later when I found the receipt and no $2 note in my wallet Thank goodness it's only a $2 note. I have a friend who almost threw her mobile phone. Thank God she realized it almost immediately and picked it up from the rubbish bin. How about you? Have you been so Deep in Thoughts that you Throw away Important things?

Yup, I've done these couple of times all ready. Luckily, I always get back whatever I lost because of my friends or colleagues. There was one time where I am so into deep thinking, I've forgotten where I put a very important contract! I almost cried after realizing it. It's a blessing that I wrote my name on the envelope that's why I get it back. It was returned to me by my colleague. Nowadays, whenever I have to focus on something, I make sure I am in my desk so that all things that are important are in my desk and not scattered around.

Yea. I am trying not to scatter things around too. I have trouble looking for stuffs sometimes.. and those stuffs only appear when I don't need them.

Yes,I have this kind of experience ..haha it is a sort of funny story ..I remember that day ,when my friends want me to deliever something important through the bus since the bus driver know her ..In the process of waiting for her,I bought a package of watermelon seeds and thinking something as to why the train haven't come yet ?if it is having already gone without my awareness?..then I discarded it to the garbage can..then I still thinking something else ,all of a sudden,I realized that my key had lost,I searched over all my pocaket ,but no results .you may think I throw it to the garbage can..haha you are right ! I used the small stick to open the can in the bottom of it .Then here comes a handsome boy and asked "hi,ayi (a chinese ,means an older lady),can you tell me what's the time of this train's departer?"....

You are young and he calls you ah yi? If I were you, I might strangle him. Such things happen. We must try to focus as often as we can. Thanks for sharing.

I don't recall ever throwing away anything because of being so deep in thought but there is times I just don't recall what I did or what someone is saying to me because I was thinking of something else. There are times I could be putting stuff away and put it some place it don't go because Im thinking of other things. I remember one time I had to throw away a gallon of milk because I have no idea what I was thinking but I put the milk in the cubbard and didn't realize it untill the next morning when I went to go get it out for breakfast and it wasn't there. I had to search and search for it knowing I had bought it, but couldn't figure out why it wasn't in the fridge. I even thought maybe I didn't grab it from the check out at the store! :) LOL We all just do funny things every now and then.

Eh.. I dun think so.. But then again, maybe yes.. lol =D I seem to have thrown away my handphone bill once before i was going to pay for it.. I just took it out from my bag and at the same time, i was thinking how much to pay (as i was lagging for 2 months then) and then at the same time, i thought i had already paid so i just threw it in the bin.. lol =D SO by time i realised it, i quickly went out of the post office to the bin, and pick it up quickly.. lol

I through away the bill instead of the trash realized it when I was walking back to the desk. I also threw away some silverware on a couple occasions. its a pain having to dig them out of the garbage LOL.
