I was wondering if this happens with you or not. Last night, after finishing horse riding I couldn't find my car keys. I thought I miss-placed them in the equestrian centre. After long looking around I found them in my jodhpur (pocket).
Similar situation happened when I had to meet up with my friends in restaurant. One of my friend called me and asked me to come quickly as they were waiting for me. I spent ~15mins looking for my phone which was on my hand (even when I was talking to him I didn't realize I was talking to him with my phone).
When he asked me why I was taking so long, and when I said because I can't find my phone. He started laughing and said what are you talking with then?
The question is, does it happen with you? Do you get absent minded sometimes?
