BEING BEHIND THE TIMES PUT ME IN THE FOREFRONT…
Well.Ã‚Â Due to my inability to use my cell phone for anything other than dialing and picking up phonecalls, I’m actually, apparently, one of the few people left on the planet who has phone numbers memorized.
Okay, I’ll stop patting myself on the back over something so silly.Ã‚Â Silly until your CELLPHONE goes missing!!!
Actually, if I don’t call people much it’s because I haven’t memorized their phone numbers for some reason and I can barely fish through all my contact info (debris, truthfully) to find them and I’m reduced to costly 411 calls.
The Pittsburgh Post Gazette ran an article yesterday about the problem of people not memorizing any of the information they used to.Ã‚Â There’s a booming business in teaching people to remember crap…like phone numbers, where they dropped their kids and left their socks.
Well, goody for me.Ã‚Â I can remember phone numbers, but everything else is periodically wiped from memory.Ã‚Â
And now that I’m done bragging I must confess that it turns out my method for memorizing–I remember the pattern of the numbers on the phone more than the numbers themselves–isn’t the preferred way reasearchers like to see subjects store info.Ã‚Â Yeah, well, it’s all I got.Ã‚Â The little things.
How bad’s your memory?
PS–I’m behind in my foundation trials, but rest assured, I’ll be back with more…
