I Have Walked Into A Room And Forgotten Why I Was There

    That happens to me all the time,

    I tend to remember awhile later then say to myself "I'll go do it in a minute" and then forget again.

    Oh boy yeah, I have done that

    so many times. Go to a room and completely forget why I am there. Often have to go back to what I was doing before so I remember what I needed when I went to get it.

    I hate talking to people

    when I walk into rooms but it happens anyway, then boom! I'm all like "Why did I come in here?" 2 hours later I'm in another town and yell out "OH I FORGOT MY SUNGLASSES! THATS WHY I WALKED IBRO MY ROOM!" I regret it for the rest of the day. I'm 16 I shouldn't be forgetting what...

    I'm Very Forgetful.

    I need a sticky note to remind me

    It used to happen to me often.

    The worst I think was when I walked into the room of a colleague to ask a question and then had no idea of why I was there. Not only did I forget the question, but I was standing in the room going through the alphabet to see if I could remember my colleague's name. Fortunately a...

    It happens almost everytime I got to the

    kitchen. I walk in, go to the fridge, open it, look around, close it then leave. Go back to my room, lay on my bed and remember I was really thirsty. Usually I get too lazy to get something to drink though so I have to call my dad....On the house phone.

    Now Why Did I Come In Here?

    It happens a lot. A lot. Often I'll go to the kitchen for a cup of tea, forget what I came for, forget that I forgot, come up with another reason to be there, do that, go back to my study, and wonder where my tea is.
