- Losing keys
It’s all about the systems. Same pocket, same drawer at work, same pot at home. It takes few seconds longer to put them in the right place than to fling them on (towards/behind/under) the sofa, but it’s way less than you’ll spend searching for them later.
Spoken as someone who spends too long looking for his keys!
My worst habit is when packing, unpacking the car, fetching things from the boot, rationalising/tidying on camping & biking trips. I just put the key down whenever/wherever I need to use the hand with the key in, so I’ll finish whatever I’m doing, realise I don’t have the key and trace back round the car to find it. And it’s a Mondeo estate, bought so we could fit loads of stuff in, so that can take some time!Posted 6 years agoBeddsMember
When i’m riding i have a cord to have the key around my neck.. at home i keep it on a hook just inaide the door..
I’m forever losing stuff so i have to have a system otherwise its gone.. being in an mrt has helped.. getting stuff ready for use straight after use means its ready to go straight away.Posted 6 years agoStuey01Member
+1 for system. My Mrs just puts stuff in random places, she’s forever losing her debit card, house keys, car key, phone, purse… If I need my keys I know they will be in 1 of 3 places.
A regular scene when leaving our gaff:
Her: have you got your keys?
Me: Yes, we’re going out, why would I not have my keys?
Her: Good, I can’t find mine.
Another regular scene, she’s had the car for work all week:
Me: Where are the car keys?
Her: You had them last.
Me: No, you’ve had the car all week, I haven’t used it.
And yet when it comes to dates and planning I’m rubbish. I’ve developed a system though – I ask my wife.Posted 6 years ago
Come to think of it, that sounds like it may be remarkably similar to her system for her keys.st colinSubscriber
Why I feel the need to share this I have no idea.
I’ve lost the garage door key, the bike has been locked away all weekend. It’s rented accomodation and the landlord has kindly opened it for me today, but I need to find the set I had.
Apart from attaching keys permanently, how can I stop misplacing keys? It’s a very bad habit.Posted 6 years agoiDaveMember
I only have 5 keys, house 1, house 2, car, garage, bike lock. House 2 key is some cryptic irreplaceable Swiss security thing. When the door shuts, it could involve me being locked out for 4 days. I have immense OCD when it comes to shutting that door, in fact I have to have the key in my hand when I walk out the door and be looking at it as I pull the door shut.Posted 6 years ago
