Have you ever looked ALL AROUND for something—under beds, in drawers, behind couches—and then when you finally find it its in the most OBVIOUS place ever?

I just searched my entire apartment looking for my camera’s USB cable. Under the beds, in every drawer in my room, behind the couch, I was even considering buying a new one. Then I found it. In the freaking box my camera came in. (I’ve used it before, but I guess last time it was used it was put back in the box rather than in my desk where I usually keep it) Now I just feel kinda silly that I went on a mission and it was right there, lol. Am I the only one?

  • I do it all the time.
    I was on the phone with my best friend the one day while getting ready to leave. So I'm talking to her walking around my whole apartment getting things ready and looking for my cell phone. I looked everywhere for that damn thing, under beds, in bathrooms, in my sons toy bins and in between the couch cushions. My friend could tell I wasn't paying much attention and she asked what I was doing. I told her I was looking for my cell phone. I will never forget her response "Umm... you're on it!" LOL... I felt so stupid!!

  • This is true...I was looking everywhere for my glasses the other day...bedroom, kitchen, bathroom everywhere I might have put them down....I probably looked for 45 minutes..and then happened to touch my hair and there they were on top of my head...

  • LOL that happened to me once too. I was at Target talking to a friend and felt my back pocket for my cell phone and couldn’t find it. I retraced my steps and looked all over the floor. I told my friend I couldn’t find my phone and she said for me to check my hand, so of course I checked my free hand (that wasn’t holding the phone). LOL

  • bellarose, you and me both! I forgot i was on my cell, not the house phone, and i was looking for my cell to try and find a phone # for my sis. This happens to me alot, very rarely is the hidden object actually hidden. Except for the remote that thing finds its way to the weirdest place. Hubby took it to the upstairs bathroom once.
