5 Things That Only Go Missing When You’re In A Hurry

January 20, 2021

You have to get somewhere on time. It’s important. But you didn’t start getting ready on time, so now you’re rushing to do everything. You get ready just in time and you look at the mirror and smile, “I knew I’d make it.” And you don’t feel bad for wasting time earlier anymore.

Now it’s time to step out. But wait, something’s missing. Something important. You know the drill; you’ll probably spend the next 20 minutes looking for it, find it in the most annoying place and then end up being late.

Here are some of the things that’ll probably go missing only when you’re in a hurry.

1. Your wallet/purse

There’s a conspiracy theory that wallets and purses go to hide when they know that their owners are in a hurry. Those bastards. Nothing is more frustrating than rushing to get ready in time and then spending the next 20-minutes looking for your wallet. Another layer of frustration is finding the wallet in the most ridiculous place ever and just thinking “How the fuck did it get here?”

2. Your keys

Keys are the worst- car keys especially. They’re right there on the table every day until the day when you need them the most, and then they’re just gone. And you won’t find them as you scatter the house like a crazy person, no. It’s when you give up and sit down to catch a breather that you spot it in the corner, acting like it couldn’t just shout “I’m HERE O!” since morning.

3. Your charger

This one is even more frustrating when you live alone. You’re there thinking “How can I be looking for my charger now? Why now?”

Pro tip: It fell by the side of the bed

4. Your facemask

You’re already at the gate, about to step out, and then you remember that we now live in a world where you have to wear a facemask to look like a normal person. You run in and start looking for the same ankara facemask you’ve been wearing for two weeks. Nowhere to be found.

5. Your belt

Men understand the struggle with this one best. How can a whole belt go missing?
