Last Wednesday morning I (after years of deliberation) booked an appointment at the Docs! so far so good, I though wow!! theres an appoinment at 11.30 today!!! Wow! cant believe it! as we all know how impossible difficult it is to get an early app.

So I gets myself sorted and waiting until 11.00 gets down to the docs, waits patiently in the que, walks up to the desk (feeling good that I have at last made the attempt)

Receptionist asks name d.o.b etc etc says "hmm cant find you on list" then says "oh yes your hear" only! its not this Wednesday its Next! Wednesday.... confused blush

I think this is common! They gave me an appointment once for 10.10 (or so I thought). She said she had said 10 to 10. The GP saw me but was not best pleased. I went on Friday and a man booked in for his appointment and she said 'Mr Smith, your appointment is for Monday not today'.

Its something in the air,I was convinced Mothers Day was tomorrow so last night I ordered a gift to be delivered direct to MIL as her proper present is sitting upstairs where I left it last week when she was leaving to go home.She got the delivery today and called to check why I's sent her a gift .When I told her we wouldn't make it over tomorrow with her real present she told me Mothers Day is next week.As I said on another thread,sometimes if I had a brain I'd be dangerous..or as my OH tells me I'm on a brain share scheme and its someone elses turn to use it Keep a place for em in your van can I book a front seat I get sick in the back ?

lol lol ohh paddyann that made me smile lol.

I rem when I first started work at my Asda it was a shock to the system, I used to go on at wrong time, they would say "What you doing here" [confused} then I would sail off at 2-00 when I should have been there until 5-00 lol.

I would be sat having my tea thinking "I'm sure I should be somewhere else"!!

Yes seeing as though your second in que you can sit in the front next to KateyK (She's driving by the way) smile

I still can’t find the chips I thought I’d taken out of the freezer two hours ago! They are not in the freezer. I’ve lost the plot, to be honest I’m not sure I ever had the plot.

I've turned up a week early for a doctor's appointment.
Twice I've booked something on the phone, walked over to the calendar and written the wrong time down.
Is there room for me in the van?

kathsue Sat 23-Mar-19 19:52:10

And I found a bag of frozen peas in the salad drawer.

KatyK Sat 23-Mar-19 19:52:45

Earlier this evening I thought clock was going forward tonight!

KatyK Sat 23-Mar-19 19:54:46

Not doctors but my DD has quite a poor memory. She turned up at her sister in law's door with champagne, flowers and balloons reading Happy 40th. The sister in law answered the door and said 'thanks but I'm 38'. Oops

DS- "Why is the peanut butter in the fridge?"
Me "I don't know I didn't put it there."
DS "Well I saw it when I put the margarine away, you'd left it out."
Me "I'm sure I put it in the fridge..... Unless........"

It's not you - it's them!

Sooo funny!

I frequently point my phone at the TV to change channels.

I booked an eye brow wax at my local
Salon so I thought ‘beauty box’ and it was actually booked for ‘a touch of beauty’ in Glamorgan wales!! I live in the midlands.

This only came to light as I was complaining to the manager (who looks 13)

I’d just got into bed last night, heard the spaniel
barking, didn’t stop, then realised I’d left her outside
after her last pee, she was very pleased to see me when
I got up to let her in, it’s not the first time I’ve done itblush

I was speaking to a BT engineer I've never met in my life and at the end of the call said cheerily, 'Bye then. Love you.' Totally forgot who I was speaking to, but probably because I end a lot of calls that way. I can just imagine the look on his face!

Where's the bus stop?
