    I dono now a days I became more forgetful. Today I came to work without wearing earrings and wearing my night suit t-shirt and wearing my flip flops. Luckily I always keep one jacket in office locker. I am wearing that to cover my shabby T-shirt. Thankfully no one bothers about others in my company. Last week I forgot my cell phone and lunch box. And once I forgot my to carry my hand bag and Without drivers licenses I drove and went to work. :)
    Did anyone else also had these kind of funny forgetful experiences?

    Yeh un dino ki baat hai (this is from the days when) I was the harried, hurried, mother of a toddler with every minute of my morning needing to run like clockwork to make it in time for the darned 8 am meeting at work to which India folks called in. This was way before you could call in to a meeting from a cell phone in the car.

    Now that we have established when it happened, here's what happened:

    I entered my office (this was before some HR person somewhere got the crazy idea of open work areas and no offices/cubicles), inspected the moistness of the soil in the money-plant, checked the office phone for a flashing red light that would mean voice-mail, blew some dust off the keyboard, took off my thin early autumn cardigan, and sat down in the chair that the office ergonomics guy had adjusted beautifully to my height and weight.

    As I lowered myself into said ergonomically adjusted chair, I started to feel that something was amiss. For starters, I felt lighter. Not the lighter when a few pounds go away. It was a different lighter feeling. The exact moment I discovered what was amiss remains engraved in my mind. The phone was on the right side of that chair, on an L-shaped desk. My outstretched and cardigan free left arm turned to the right to reach for the phone to dial a four digit internal number. Even as my mind conveyed the four digit number to my finger-tips, my mind and body froze in mid-action.

    Realization dawned and my horror multiplied as a discreet glance downward confirmed my worst fears. The amiss was a piece of apparel that I had forgotten to don that morning. Well, forgotten isn't the exact thing that happened. Let's say a change of guard took place each morning, like from night shift to morning shift, and somehow that exchange had gone awry that morning. Like the best laid hostage exchange plans can go wrong.

    Instead of dialing that four digit internal number, I called up a friend in a panic. There was no way I could go back home, or even go to the nearby store and buy one. She calmed me down, said to put the cardigan back on and walk less, walk gently the rest of the day.

    Since that day, I am never without a cardigan, jacket or coat in the car.

    If you are still lost as to what that amiss apparel was -- it was something the feminists also forgot, albeit forgot to burn in 1968. Yes! That much famed burning never happened.

    LOL.

    I actually intentionally wear an old tee-shirt to work in the winter months, the ones I wear at home because I usually wear a jacket anyway on top, so that I can then go home and just get out of my jeans and wear my comfortable pants. One less piece of clothing to wash!!

    Similarly, if I wear a skirt, I usually wear a capri underneath, so that once I get home, I just slide the skirt right off and no extra effort needed to find another thing to wear.

    Am I clever or what? ;-)

    Fun thread, @Hana2018! :thumbsup:

    Now and then I forget to change from ghar ka chappal to bahar ka joota. By the time my freezing toes alert me to the lapse I'm often too far away to turn around.

    Once I was wearing a pair of artificial earrings to college..long dangling earrings..one fell off and the whole day I was going around with a earring on just one year...
    One of the professors saw me and tried hard to control her laughter...I realised the reason later on when one of my classmate was kind enough to tell me!

    I have worn dresses inside out at least twice. Once I have gone wearing the slippers that I use around home. To make it worse they were in a kind of bad condition. I stayed glued to my seat most of the day.

    In my current pump at work scenario, I have turned up at standups with my shirt inside out multiple times ! As I would be listening to updates slowly realization would dawn about the inside outness. No way to escape - have had to give status updates while praying no one noticed!
