Busy? Then forget it

DHAKA: Typically, we fail to remember four facts, items or events each day, including leaving home without a phone or wallet, or forgetting to defrost meat.

Britons struggle to recall someone’s name when introducing them – while important messages, meetings and emails are missed in our busy lives.

Researchers charted 50 of the most commonly forgotten things after polling 2,000 adults. The top two are people not remembering why they went into a room, and misplacing keys.

Men are twice as likely to forget a partner’s birthday or an anniversary and, remarkably, one in 20 men has missed a funeral by being absent-minded. But women were found to show the most frustration when losing things.

And one in four women admitted to lying if they forgot something big and think they will get into trouble for it.

Perhaps this explains why women are twice as likely to be the one in the relationship with the better memory.

A spokesman for Post-it sticky note pads, which commissioned the report, said: “With longer working hours, financial fears and busier lifestyles, even those with the best memory can stumble when it comes to remembering simple things in a hectic day.”
