Stuff Happens…especially to old people
OK, so a few weeks ago I put diesel fuel into my regular gas burning car. It happens. I was confused. It was a new car so I was not familiar with the gas tank. I’m from NJ so we don’t normally fill our own tanks.
A week ago I came back from a night out, no drinking involved, and hung my pants up with my wallet still in the back pocket. The next day I could not find my wallet. It happens. Anyone could make such a mistake. I was sure that it had fallen out on my pocket and was left at the theater. Panic was setting in until Mrs. C suggested I at least check my pants.
Oops! Hey it happens.
Saturday, I gave Mrs. C a check for our monthly expenses. Sunday, I went into my account to schedule a payment. I had a rather large negative balance. What the heck? A bit of research and I realized I gave Mrs. C a check for monthly expenses from the wrong account.
Easy mistake. It happens.
Mrs. C showed me how to deposit a check from the correct account into the overdrawn account at the bank’s teller machine, even though the bank is not open on Sunday. I checked the account on-line and the deposit negated the overdraft and everything was just fine.
No harm no foul.
This stuff happens to people all the time…right?
It didn’t used to happen to me.
I used to get miffed when Mrs. C would double check me for things.
“Did you remember your wallet?”
“DO you have your glasses?”
“Y E S !!.
Did you remember to turn off the water?”
“O F C O U R S E !!!”
I may be getting old. I gave Mrs. C carte blanche to question me any time about anything and I will understand and no longer catch an attitude.
Stuff happens, but it might be avoided with a little well-placed understandable nagging.
