Alas...I have just the opposite problem...I remember EVERYTHING. Sounds screwy but it's true.

So now dh2b is using me as his memory bank. "Where did I put this, honey?" or "What is so-n-so's phone number?"

And darn it all, I actually do remember.

This is not mine.... but a funny one IMO...

Back in the early 80s... a co-worker had been doing a LOT of work on taxes... and stored it on a floppy disk (5 1/4)... one time he put it in the computer to do something and was distracted... after handling the problem, which took some time... he went to the computer and the disk was 'gone'... he could not find it at all.. so started to look around (it WAS two weeks worth of work)...

After looking for hours, he gave up and started to do the work again... a couple of years later, when we were moving his computer, the disk slid out of the crack where the floppy disk drive did not match up with the computer!!!


I don't misplace things that often... so no good stories... but now my wife will put something in "its place".... and when I ask her where that place is loacted, she tells me she never touched it... and then the argument starts because I know she took it.. I saw her.... just tell me where you hid it!!!

I never misplace anything. It is always exactly where I left it. My recollection of the location can be faulty at times.

Wedding ring went missing for about 16 months while I was in the Air Force during the mid 70's. I worked on electronic equipment and we weren't allowed to wear jewelry when working. Some days, I wouldn't even wear it to work. After a few days, realized it was missing. 16 months later, I was dusting in an equipment room and found it on top of a metal cabinet where I had obviously set it down after taking it off to do some work.

I've found stuff I don't remember having in the first place.

Most recently was finding my pilot's logbook after losing it for about 3 years. Found it in the left rear passenger door pocket of the pickup truck when detailing the truck. Apparently I'd put it there as a "safe place so it wouldn't get lost" when moving some material in the course of building the airplane. Later on I about tore the house apart looking for it.

I've even bought replacement tools to replace the ones I knew I had...somewhere... but couldn't find.

DW also fulfills freebird's function here. She always knows where everything is. Well, except for stuff that I put in a safe place....
