Today I had another one of those moments that I’m trying to figure out why I’m having. I went into a store, where thankfully they know me, and was asked to fill out my usual slip of paper, name, address, phone number and signature. First I wrote my address where they wanted the phone number. Then I wrote my name where they wanted my city and my city where they wanted my address, and then I signed my name on the zip code line and put my phone number on the signature line.
Absolutely not one of my answers was correct, or even close. I completely messed it up and I asked if I could start over and they thought I was silly. But it isn’t silly to me…not filling out a simple form correctly isn’t silly to me. I have a medical job. What if I’m typing stuff on a patient’s permanent record that isn’t true? How will I know if I am or not?
Maybe it started the other day, whatever this is. At the bank, I couldn’t remember my account number. I had all the digits correct but in a different order. Three times the guy asked me; three times I couldn’t get it right. Finally I asked him if I could use my social security number and I got it wrong. I was almost in tears by then and finally he just asked me all those random questions they ask…and thank God I knew those answers. It was such a fucked up moment in time. And now today.
What is happening to me?
