Today after being at work for not even ten minutes I had to excuse myself, hop into my car and drive over thirty minutes back to my apartment because I couldn't remember if I had unplugged my flat iron or not.
Unlike in the past when I've had this 'Oh shit!' moment I could not call someone to check (I used to be able to call my house and ask my father to check) or run home on my fifteen minute break. I legit had to waste over an hour of my vacation time to drive back and forth.
The whole thing is just mind boggling to me because I can remember the most trivial of details from years ago but I cannot remember for the life of me whether or not I turned my damn flat iron off. It's incredible that my brain can't register this one action.
I'm thinking I need to either buy a flat iron that turns itself off after X amount of time or send myself an e-mail saying "Yes you idiot, you did indeed turn your flat iron off today. Stop thinking about it and pay attention to the road!"
Do other people have this problem? Am I the only one? Lemme know...
For those of you that are curious, I did indeed waste an hour because it was unplugged.
