    Plenty of late, either putting something "safe"and completely forgetting were it is.
    Or going into a room for something, and not being able to remember what it is.

    The wife of my boss came into work wearing odd shoes. One brown and one blue. When she was finally told, she replied oh i have another pair just like them at home...

    I can never, ever remember where I park in Supermarket car parks and once when I owned an old Ford Fiesta (white), I got into the driver's side (yes, my key opened it) to find a woman I'd never seen before who was quite understanding and helpfully pointed out mine about four cars along.

    Oh well.......

    Did you admit it Cliff, or sheepishly allow everyone to continue sympathising with you, that would have been my course of action.

    Went to the cashpoint at night and tried to get some money out. I wasn't getting anywhere until my good lady pointed out that the buttons were on a keyboard below the screen and I was wasting my time pressing away on the screen itself. My wife said I would probably star in the banks 'idiot' customer video at Christmas.

    Very bad boy. Unfortunately not a Senior moment as you were in your youth

    My worst(most expensive) senior moment was when I parceled my walking boots up and posted them to the Repairers in Lancashire.
    Couldn't find my car keys. I must have lost them! Always like to have a spare so off to the main agent for a duplicate at about 60 blooming quid.

    Two days later a phone call from the repairers asking why I had sent my car keys inside the boots. DOH!!!

    Spent hours looking for the car keys. Got to the point where I was looking in the same places for the third or fourth time, fully exasperated and actually tearing at my hair, then decided to have a cuppa and a think before I auto-combusted.

    Got the milk from the fridge and there they were - behind the milk in the door pocket, where they'd been put when I came in gagging for a brew the previous night. Bonkers!

    Anyone else starting to put things down and then lose them immediately; I mean like two seconds later and it's not there? Seems to be the latest symptom in the slide towards senility, together with the "standing in the kitchen not aware why I'm here" thing and having to call everything a whatsit till the memory of its name catches up. I'm doomed; doomed, I tell you
