If I'm going to ridicule others for being dumb, I might as well take aim at myself when I deserve it too. Today, as we were leaving Richmond to go back to Fulham, we stopped at Starbucks to get some coffee for home. My phone rang while I was in line (it was Jason calling from the queue for the bathroom to tell me to get him a Peppermint Mocha) and I kept it in my hand instead of putting it back in it's cozy little pocket in my bag. When we walked out of the Bucks, I dropped my phone into the carrier bag and thought to myself at the time "Self, you should just go ahead and put that back in your purse instead of dropping into this Starbucks bag." and I said, "Self, you shut up because I don't want to unzip my purse, put the phone inside, and zip it back up. That's seems like a lot of trouble for nothing."
We get on the train and I set the bag in the floor and I thought to myself, "Self, you should probably either set that bag on the seat or ask Jason to put it in the backpack because you might forget it when you get off the train." and I said "Self, you shut up because I'm tired and I don't want to pick that bag up right now. That seems like a lot of trouble for nothing."
Cut to us on another train after changing at Earl's Court, one stop away from Fulham. Cue me smacking myself in the forehead and saying "Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit." over and over.
I am stupid, therefore I am without phone.
