I don’t know why but as I have gotten older I seem to be forgetting something every single day! I have always been somewhat of a forgetful person, but for some weird reason it has been getting worse in the past few months.
A few days ago my forgetfulness ended up costing me a huge amount of money as I was bringing home a new heating and cooling device that I had purchased from a kind elderly woman on craigslist… I had broken my old device after forgetting to turn it off while I was on vacation which caused it to overheat and nearly set my house on fire.
After picking up my new device I ended up getting into a very long conversation with this woman which led me to completely forget to take the safety precaution to tie down the heating and cooling device in the back of my van. Once I did eventually leave it only took a few minutes before I heard a massive bang sound coming from behind me until I realized what I had done. I had paid that old man a very massive amount of money for this heating and cooling device with the hopes of having it installed into my house and now it was simply a big pile of broken metal on the highway! The worst part of it all when I think about it is how simple this would have been to avoid, and from this point forward I am going to do my best to make sure that things like this stop happening to me, and there are no more broken heating and cooling units in my future if I have anything to say about it!
