Some people forget their wallets, while others continuously leave their glasses or housekeys on the dining room table. I once forgot to replace the fuel hose at a gas station
before driving off (Autoblog PSA: the replacement cost of a breakaway hose is around $96.00). Let's face it: we all forget stuff sometimes. People have a lot of serious issues on their minds, after all. Stuff like the upcoming presidential election, Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons, and how the writers' strike will affect the new season of 24
(and how the eff Tony is still alive) all weigh heavily on our minds. But you get the point: it's easy to get distracted these days. The perfect example of this occurred in Germany last Friday, when a man reportedly drove to a service station, filled up, paid for his purchase, and proceeded to walk home. Eventually, someone called the cops who tracked down the owner. He then hurried back to collect his ride that was sitting at the gas station where he left it. Hey, at least he didn't drive off like a jackass with the filler still attached.
