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 odd reason it has been getting worse somehow.
- 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 unit that I had purchased from a kind elderly man on craigslist.
I had broken my old unit 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 unit I ended up getting into a very long conversation with this man which led me to completely forget to take the safety precaution to tie down the heating and cooling unit in the back of my truck. 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 large amount of cash for this heating and cooling unit with the hopes of having it installed into my lakehouse and now it was simply a big pile of broken metal on the road! The worst part of it all when I think about it is how easy this would have been to avoid. From this point forward I am going to do my best to make sure that things like this stop happening to me. There are no more broken heating and cooling units in my future if I have anything to say about it!
