Early signs of Alzheimer's disease...!

Well, it’s more of a silly act of forgetfulness, is all I can say. Last evening, as a routine I packed my stuff hurriedly and rushed downstairs from my workplace to catch a rick to home. An auto rick stood nearby and as a daily routine I fought with him… since, he demanded his exorbitant charges irrespective of his digital meter board. I told him “GET LOST”. I seriously did so. Waited anxiously for another one and the other one agreed with his meter reading fare. I thanked my stars and boarded the rick, when I realized I had forgotten something……I had literally forgotten that today I actually drove down and had parked my car downstairs…I stopped the rick driver and apologized… he gave me a weird look as if I had gone crazy...stopping him over and then getting down…but I smiled back thinking he doesn’t even know the reason. Well, then I came up and searched for my keys and drove back home….

Are you guys smiling AT LEAST…on my insanity???? :-)

Hahaha, great one. Seriously when did this happen. But considering your history, I guess it was just waiting to happen.

Reminds me of this one. During my Satyam Training Days, we had to wear a tie everyday. Now one hot day I am rushing to catch an auto to Hi-Tech when I see this guy wearing a tie and I am like - "What a guy! Wearing a tie in this summer. Looks like a credit card salesman or someth....". I had not finished the sentence when I realised I should be wearing one and ran back to the hostel to get it.

Well Shabnam, I am laughing, not just because its funny, but because, I have been through what you have been through!

Sometimes I get angry with myself, sometimes I just enjoy the funny part! :)
