What People Forget
I was relieved to find out that I'm not the only one who forgets things. Everyone does at one time or another, according to Karen Bolla, A Johns Hopkins researcher. These are the things people most often forget:
2. where something is
3. telephone numbers
5. what was said
And if you can't remember whether you've just done something, you join 38 percent of the population.
