You walk into a room to do something, but forget what you want to do when you get there

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.
