Can you hear me now? Not only is that an old Verizon slogan, but it seems to be a recurring issue with me. You see I don’t pay attention to something many times until it is important to me. And it doesn’t mean what you have to say isn’t important, but when it is task related, I tend to tune out until I need to accomplish the task.
For example, if you said “Hey could you send me Bob’s address when you get home”, I will say “send me an email/text” because I know that even though it is important to you, my brain is constantly moving so I will most likely forget. This infuriates my wife, who will tell me multiple times what she needs at the grocery store, but unless I am there and talking to her on the phone or she tells me right before I leave, I will most likely forget because I didn’t expend the energy to put it into my long term memory. She now knows to just give me a written list. Now if I could only find that damn list.
