11 essential facts of life for people who lose stuff all the time


THERE ARE SOME people who, bless them, just can’t seem to hold on to any of their possessions no matter how careful they are.

Keys get misplaced, socks go missing, phones slide down the backs of mysterious couches. For those unlucky ones, you live this life everyday, and it looks something like this:

1. You develop an immediate fear when you get given something important

“Are you sure you want to give this to me?”

2. You come up with weird ideas that will help you never lose anything again

“I’ll never forget that I left it there!”

*forgets the next morning*

3. You’re constantly paranoid things have fallen out of your pocket

Walking down the street “DO I HAVE MY PHONE ON ME?”

*pats down body*

Only to find it was on the dresser the whole time.

*rage intensifies*
