This is a question Brain Fade

Freddie Woo tells us how he recently spent ages trying to open his front door with his Oyster Card before realising he actually needed things called "keys". Tell us of times you've done stupid things while on auto-pilot

One day in Hamburg
So there I was, spending a day shopping in Hamburg. At the end I had amassed 4 carrier bags of stuff, plus one fuckoff-sized bag containing a new suit, and then...

"Where the fuck is my train ticket?"

I searched and searched. Yes, I had definitely lost it. Crap. Off to the ticket machines (5 euro surcharge if you want to speak to a human being) I went, and lightened the wallet.

---2 hours of public transport rage omitted---

When I came home, there was no car in the driveway. "Germangal must be grocery shopping", I say to myself. Luckily, I had only lost the ticket and not my keys.
Opening the door, I was greeted by Germangal and the two Germandaughters.

"Where's the car?" ask I.

Then it clicked. I'd only gone and forgotten the fucking CAR in a city 180km away.

Went to the parking garage I usually use the next day, got back Germanride, payed for another train ticket and overnight parking. Total cost to bank account: 143 euros. Total profits for future alzheimer's doc: Probably millions. Total cost to dignity: Infinite.

First post be gentle, long time lurker first time poster, length, girth, something something star wars something, bins (stayed about from), magenta CDC.

It is, isn't it?

I get reminded of it at every family gathering, what joy.

Excellent first postage here.
Welcome in, pull off Legless, do some massive drugs, stay about from my bins.

'Alzheimering' sounds like the new German Grand Prix circuit
I imagine Stirling Moss, Jackie Stewart and Frank Williams all trundling around on their mobility scooters...

But every so often forgetting which way round to go...

In terms of the scale of what you forgot and the consequences, this is incredible. Clicky.

Probably the only reason I haven't already done this
is that I don't have a car.

Have ye a click.

Fuck. That's 10/10 for pure vagueness.
