I'm a Loser Baby...

  1. What is wrong with me lately? (Finger and thumb in the shape of an L on my forehead)

    I go to the drive up ATM and forget my freakin' number. The same number I use multiple times a week for the last five years. Can't for the life of me remember, totally freaked because cars are lined up behind me. I leave in humilation.

    Go to the dog park with dog. No where to park because of a nearby blues festival. Find one space in that I must parallel park. For the life of me I can't parallel park. Back and forth over and over again. Traffic lined up, laughing. I drive off in humilation.

    Then go to another dog park. No one there, so I decide to drive to the beach. Approaching the toll booth that leads to the beach I'm 15 cents short and don't have my freakin' wallet with me. So I take my butt home.

    Go to the grocery store to buy food for dinner, a guest is coming. Forget the rice that is an important part of my recipe. Oh well, find some brown rice in the cabinet and just have to adjust the cooking times. Open up two packs of sweet potatoes that are ready sliced and peeled and ready to go. They are rotten as they can be, both bags. I search and search and tear the house down and can't find my receipt. I'm out $4.00 because I'm too lazy to peel freakin' sweet potatoes.

    I'm 24 hours short on this paycheck because I forgot to fill out the proper forms when I forgot to clock in and out two days.

    now I have the song allstar by smashmouth in my head.....
    dont worry , we all suffer from loser'itis sometimes....
    I did a realllllllll stupid thing today (I know , shocking, control your amazement and disbelief!)
    had to send an assignment to my prof, have it saved on disk , start freaking out cuz I go to send it and I cant find the disk anywhere, I look in all the usual spots (you know like under the desk, in my undewear drawer, all the NORMAL places for a disk to be) to no avail, no disk , I'm gonna fail , yadda yadda
    tear my room apart looking for this disk , praying to the floppy gods to take pitty on my poor soul..... nope not happening....
    thinking I just might have to get dressed today (what a pain!) and go down to the school and redo the whole thing , I get myself convinced that I will be productive,take ownership of the fact that I lost the disk (how adult and mature of me, I know) so I go to shut off the computer (a few choice swear words escape my lips) and I see the nice little prompt on the screen
    yep you know the one
    "cannot shut down because your DUMB left the disk in the A drive!"
    or something of the sort.....
    yep it was there all along , all I had to do was look, but no, that was too easy, instead I had to ponder my educational demise and curse my bad luck
    dont feel bad , we arent losers , just , unsuccessful winners

    Man-some days you are the dog and other days you are the fire hydrant........PIN numbers !-what a pain in the azz....I have lost count of how many times I have forgotten mine-and I have so many darn PIN's and passwords to try to remember...It's no wonder that sometimes on the drive home I have to seriously consider if a red light means to stop or go.....

    Sounds like a combo of sheer bad luck and stress, my friend. Cut yourself some slack. Doggy still loves you, hubby still loves you, we still love you.

    And just remember that copious amounts of alcohol and/or ice cream can salvage any dinner party.

    Stargazer hit it right on -- I KNOW you're not a loser (after all, you're one of the cool member of this board!).

    Hugs!
