    I love it when someone on this forum posts those lovely "Duh" moments online for me to see. That way I don't feel so terrible about my own private Duh moments (which happen daily) as someone else is open for attack! (joking)

    Thanks for sharing! Made me smile.

    Yeah, I have a lot of senior moments too!

    My best one that I keep repeating is losing the control steering wheel of my electric cart (scooter). I turn the seat all the way around for some reason and wonder why the wheel isn't in front of me. Talk about feeling dumb!

    Been there, done that! :p

    Or when I park in the driveway, get out of my vehicle, walk to the house and catch myself clicking the button on my car remote to unlock the house door. Doh!

    My adult children have a great time with my moments---they are still laughing about the phone message I left, you know how "leave your message at the beep" and you are on the spot---think fast? "Jack, Jon Stewart's show on channel 5 tonight at 7 is a special, I won't be home to watch it, would you tibo it for me? Thanks."

    OMG I know what you mean I have alot of senior moments. I'm only 37 and have been having them for years. I do all kinds of things the latest thing I did was take out a gallon jug of water and pour into my tea (thought it was milk). I hope I'm not having senior moments too young!!!!!!!!11

    My dads had scientifically labeled it something quite different. He calls it "the head up the rear (different word) syndrom." Claims it is often genetic and is inhertiable through my mom's side.

    Reminds me of my Mother years ago. She went on vacation, and when she came back she said to me..."That close up toothpaste tastes horrible! You know, the blue toothpaste?" and I said... "Mom, it comes in red or green no blue." So I looked at the tube and she had brushed her teeth with Bryll Cream for a week and never noticed!! Then there was the time that she went to spray her hair and grabbed the Dow Bathroom Cleaner...OMG, her head was all white expanding foam..... :bouncy:

    Back when I was still certifiably young, I drove through a red light when the cigarette lighter popped out. I soon stopped smoking.

    Two weeks ago we took the baby grandson to the doctor because the kids were working. I take a shower and get my clothes out of my side of the closet and get dressed. I have several pairs of jeans hanging up, some nice and some well worn, and as usual, I just grab one. I put my keys and pocket knife in my pocket and realize I don't like these jeans cause the pockets aren't deep enough, but I wear them anyway. The baby is fussy, so I carry him back and forth in the crowded doctors office showing him things to entertain him. Happen to look at my wife and she motions for me to come here. She then tells me I have a pair of her Jordache jeans on.
