Thought it would be fun too ask this question,  

where is the craziest place you've lost your phone?  

I once found my cell phone in my fridgerator(oops) 

Sometimes the world can distract us and makes us mislocated....

Quoting wildhorse2002:

oh dear!! i'm sure almost everyone puts their phone down somewhere strange then spend ages looking for it sometimes, what concerns me is the frightening regularity with which i do it, but worse than that is how often i spend ages dashing round looking for my phone whilst i'm chatting to someone- on the phone :-/ of course i blame early onset alzheimers but the scary truth is probably just that i'm a ditz!!!



Alzheimer’s is way scarier.

It fell out of the hotel dryer when I went to get my laundry.  Was wondering why no one seemed to be calling or texting for a couple hours.

Quoting Curious2078:

I'm telling you, RMac, it's that dang CRS.  [Can't Remember S**t].  Although, I must say, I never lose my reading glasses or my bifoculs.  Yup, I have two pairs to keep track of and I always know where both of them are.  I'd be blind as a bat without them.

 

Of course, there are those mornings when I go into the kitchen to wet down my hair in the sink in preparation for styling it, then forget to pick up the bifoculs, go into the bathroom, and by the time I'm almost done styling my hair closeup in the mirrors and I'm ready to put the bifoculs on for a long view of what I've accomplished, I can't find the them and have no clear memory of where they are.  It takes a few moments to work my way backwards through where I've been.  Then I recall they're still in the kitchen.  So back I go to the kitchen.  But without my bifoculs on, I have trouble seeing where in the kitchen the glasses are.  LOLOLOL.

 

I always find them, eventually, though.  But it sure wastes a lot of time unless I remember to get a good laugh out of it.



I know, we all worry about that CRS and even more about whatever is causing it. 

 

Since I can see well enough to see without my glasses, I lose them regularly.  Only if I try to read do I miss them.    

 

Similarly, since I can read with my distance glasses – not bifocals I lose track of my reading glasses regularly too.  Only if I am reading for a long time or if I try to read in dim light, do I need them. 

 

Usually neither is really lost.  So far I have really lost only one pair of glasses.  I left them on a plane. 

 

In my experience, if you leave something on a plane or in a motel, it is gone and lost forever.

Quoting rmac22:

It is easy to put down a cell phone, your reading glasses, or anything else you are carrying, in the freezer without dementia or the influence of alcohol or any other dementing substances. 

 

You are carrying it, you are busy and distracted, and you go to the freezer to get something that needs both hands to find so you lay it down.  Get what you went for and lose track of the phone or whatever.    

 

Since you did not need to engage brain to lay it down you haven’t a clue as to where it is. 

 

There are other weird places things can wind up due to this process.

I do want to add one quick comment.  Ever since I lost my wallet one day many years ago and eventually found it in the fridge, I have held on to a very important maxim:

 

When you can't find your wallet, check the fridge.  Meaning, when you lose anything, don't overlook any of the places where you think you couldn't or wouldn't ever leave it.  Check the most ridiculous places you can think of and you'll usually find it.

 

Just a few days ago I couldn't find a particular pair of earrings.  I looked in all the usual places to no avail, then I finally found them in my bathroom cabinet.  Why I put them there is still a mystery to me.  Must be that dang CRS.   LOLOLOL

Quoting bepositive:

I answered a call (half asleep) late one night and put the phone down in my bed.   It took me all day to find it and when I did I had all sorts of messages from friends asking me what I was doing calling them in the middle of the night.  It seems my dog was laying on the phone and ass dialing all night.  hahaha

I left my IPhone 3 which was in a WHITE Otterbox on the hood of my WHITE truck. See the pattern here?

 

I had driven close to two miles when I hit a pothole and the phone turned over but remained on the hood. (I won't tell you about the jump my heart took not realizing what it was at first) the Otterbox was worth every penny.

 

Hi Hope!!

Quoting Hoping4Love2000:

BRITTANY, BRITTANY, BRITTANY----

 

I doubt "the world" was "distracting" you ------ as much as the alcohol!! 

 

(Either that,,,, or you have a very early onset of dementia!)

 

I had a client who would hide her false teeth in the freezer!! (and microwave, and pillow case!!) LOL

 

ME?  Left it at a bar one time,,, back when cells were those big, bulky things. The bartender placed it by the coffee maker and the heat burnt it up! 

 

Bathroom stalls are the first place I look.....

 

B/C I learned to set it down long ago, after I dropped one in the toilet! OOPS!! 

 

Back in the "heavy party days" I went through cell phones like tooth brushes!! ;)



OMG....I have heard, being under the influence of alcohol, does cause one to become mislocated...sooooo, I am going with that excuse for my stupidity.

Fortunately, for me, I don't own a cell phone.  I'm still stuck with a land line.  Which works fine for me since cell phones don't work in my very rural area. 

 

So, all I get to do is laugh at all this nonsense.  LOLOLOLOLOL
