This happens to me at work! Someone emailed it to me, and I thought we could all relate....
DO you have A.A.A.D.D?
They have finally found a diagnosis for my condition. Hooray!! I have recently
been diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder...This
is how it goes:
I decide to wash the car; I start toward the garage and notice the mail on the
table. OK, I'm going to wash the car. But first I'm going to go through the
mail. I lay the car keys down on the desk, discard the junk mail and I notice
the trashcan is full. OK, I'll just put the bills on my desk and take the
trashcan out, but since I'm going to be near the mailbox anyway, I'll pay these
few bills first. Now, where is my checkbook? Oops, there's only one check left.
My extra checks are in my desk. Oh, there's the coke I was drinking.
I'm going to look for those checks. But first I need to put my coke further away
from the computer, or maybe I'll pop it into the fridge to keep it cold for a
while. I head towards the kitchen and my flowers catch my eye, they need some water. I set the coke on the counter and uh oh! There are my glasses. I was
looking for them all morning! I'd better put them away first. I fill a
container with water and head for the flower pots - - Aaaaaagh! Someone left the
TV remote in the kitchen. We will never think to look in the kitchen tonight
when we want to watch television so I'd better put it back in the familyroom
where it belongs.
I splash some water into the pots and onto the floor, I throw the remote onto a
soft cushion on the sofa and I head back down the hall trying to figure out what
it was I was going to do? End of Day: The car isn't washed, the bills are
unpaid, the coke is sitting on the kitchen counter, the flowers are half
watered, the checkbook still only has one check in it and I can't seem to find
my car keys!
When I try to figure out how come nothing got done today, I'm baffled because I
KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY LONG!!! I realize this is a serious condition and I'll
get help, BUT FIRST I think I'll check my e-mail...
Please send this to everyone you know because I DON'T REMEMBER WHO I'VE
SENT THIS TO!!! But please don't send it back to me or I might send it to you

LOL, as I started to read this, I realized that I forgot to get my mail from the mailbox. I went to get it, came back and read the rest of the first post. sat here and read my mail before I responded.
