Yup! I showed up to a widowed people's group for the 1st time....a week ahead of when the meetup for dinner was supposed to be, and I posted on the site...that I was the only one there! 

I put liquid egg whites into my coffee instead of half and half.

I did the following during the early days:

1) left the keys in the front door lock overnight MANY times

2) did not fully shut my front door and it flung open and stayed that way until some kind neighbors checked my house to make sure I was not in trouble inside and shut it for me -- TWICE!

3) left my packed suitcase on the front porch overnight and another time left my laptop in briefcase there ALL day

4) left paid-for groceries at the store register and arrived home before realizing they were left behind

Just recently got out of my car and didn't bother to turn it off...thank goodness someone was with me and they pointed it out.

I have a new keyless entry car that confuses me so much! Left the car running TWICE in Target parking lot! Did not realize it until I came outside and tried to start the car and instead it turned OFF. :)

Yes WithoutJim, that is what I have and it's so easy to just hop out without hitting that button when you are distracted or foggy.
