Why am I here again?

You debate with yourself if you turn the gas or lights off every time you are out of the house

You will burn the house down one day.

Finding your keys and ATM card is a daily struggle

Most of the time, you’re holding them in your hand.

You hardly remember what you were talking about when you’re interrupted in the middle of a conversation

If you can’t remind me where I stopped, this is the end of the conversation.

You reply texts after a week because you always think you’d done it already
