How I know I'm losing my mind:
I always knock on the door before I go in to see a patient (then I come in without waiting for an answer). The way I know I'm losing my mind is that I accidentally knocked on the door to the stairwell last week.
I have also recently got out my keys to open the door the stairwell. (They don't require keys.)
Maybe Aricept is right for you. Ask your doctor.ReplyDelete
This is the best you've written in months. As a working mother I too have my moments...ReplyDelete
Just start grooming yourself when you flub like that -- it's what my cat does when he misses a leap to the bookcase. Go ahead, lick your paw, that's right .... TriciaReplyDelete
Love it! Cats so know how to look cool no matter what.Delete
Hey, I used to try to badge in to my apartment, my car, my parents house - even the grocery store one memorable day. It happens. You may be going nuts, but this isn't a symptom.ReplyDelete
I am a pathologist. I have (more than once) knocked on the door TO MY OWN OFFICE when LEAVING the office.ReplyDelete
I have also responded to a toddler asking, "Mommy?" from the back seat of the car with, "Come in!"
It's brain fry! :)
The worst is when I'm calling some random place like the daycare or a takeout restaurant and I instinctively say, "Hello, this is Dr. Fizzy." So embarrassing.Delete
Oh I HATE when I answer MY cell phone with, "Thank you for calling CVS blah blah blah". I want to just hand up and pretend it never happened.Delete
I once called my own daughter and said, "This is Dr. Xx, I was paged..."Delete
Leave off the Rx, Grumpy. Just think, Dr. Fizzy, you may have TOO MUCH on your mind. Just sayin'ReplyDelete
I've dialed the pincode of my credit card on the elevator. :)ReplyDelete
Have you ever spoken to a patient, nurse, resident like you do to your toddler?ReplyDelete
Yes, but a lot of my patients are mentally impaired.Delete
I snapped at an intern once to get him to hurry. In my defense, he was being intolerably slow.Delete
You're getting olderReplyDelete
Punt to Psych! I used to work in a place where they had motion sensors on the light switches. It took years to stop expecting lights to turn on automatically everywhere else.ReplyDelete
It is a funny joke, maybe you are too busy thinking of your work?ReplyDelete
Or when you call somebody, wait for them to pick up for a couple rings, and forget who you're phoning, or even that you're on the phone. Then they answer the phone and you're like "Hello? Who's this?"ReplyDelete
Or when my parents dial their own home phone and ask "Where are you?" when I'm visiting them.
