I did that too!!! —re. paying at the drive through, then forgetting to wait for the food!! Luckily, I was still in the vicinity when I figured out something was missing. Often it’s like that with my ADD snafus, I catch myself very shortly after the fact.

One area that I have never adequately addressed is the library fine issue. Each time I pay up, I vow to come up with a system for getting the books back on time, and I don’t follow through. I have single handedly endowed a wing of the public library with the fines I have paid over the years for late books and videos. I try to pay in cash, so I don’t have to explain the (recurring) expense to my husband…I should ask him for help…
