..or at least the way it's wired.

Small details are just not my thing and I get in trouble at work so often for something I missed... forgot.... mislabled... you name it.

How can I be so f-ing smart but mail something to the wrong client??!! AGAIN!!!

It's not your fault, sweets.....just do the best you can and no beating yourself up for it!!! You ARE smart, but sometimes the wiring doesn't have anything to do with your intelligence level.

Deep breath now......ahhhhh..........

Got your back on this one. If I had a dollar for every time I heard, "Gee, for someone so freakin' smart that was really stupid" ....

Baby, you stand to make some serious money from the stuff I leave in my pockets.

Sometimes, I'm such a doo doo head.

Did I tell you that I accidentally tipped the counter girl ten bucks at lunch because I put my ten in instead of a dollar bill and I didn't know it until I got back to the office. And then there would have been that whole Saturday Night Live "good angel/devil on my shoulder" thing about whether I would take it out and put a dollar in HAD I noticed.


Can you say....LAHOOOOOOOOOOSER!

You're not a loser. You're just wired differently. That's what makes the world a cool place. If everyone was the same, how boring would that be???

I think that certain people receive different challemges only because they are equipped to face them....to second elkid...I'd have my own island if I had a dollar for everytime someone said "For a smart person, you do some really stupid things".

Think..."multi-tasking".....

I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I can preform three tasks at once perfectly, but if I am doing one simple task my mind tends to wander off and I can screw a very simple thing up! You are not the only one, and you are human and try as we may, mistakes get made! I feel your pain, I really do.

I'm a pretty absent-minded person too so I can feel you pain.
