Haha I can’t believe he couldn’t find a hat that was covered by a towel!  My husband loses a lot of things but usually they are places where neither of us can find it for a while!

hahaha too funny!

My Fiance will take out his contacts, THEN look for his glasses! They’ll be like right in front of him and he can’t find them…then as he’s tearing up the room/bathroom looking for them, they inevitably go flying or are buried under pile of his stuff…this literally happens 4x a week 🙂

I think it’s a guy thing since they’re usually momma’s boy and their mom’s always wanted to “take care” of them. Talk about a bad habit!

My fiance was supposed to go to the shooting range with his best friend yesterday.  He called me while I was at work and said, “Do you know where my ammo is?  It’s all missing.”  It turned out it was right where he left it, but covered by a shirt.

oh wow this is hilarious haha. My guy doesn’t have that problem I don’t think… although he almost never loses things so I guess he also doesn’t have to look all that often. I think a lot of guys have weird quirks though.

I could have written this post!!!  My Fiance does this with EVERYTHING!  Just yesterday he and I were searching the house looking for his keys and it turned out they were IN. HIS. POCKET.

I feel your pain…

My Fiance does this. It’s ridiculous. The worst is when he’s looking for something in the fridge. He’ll stare in and ask me “Where’s the *item*?” and he won’t actually move anything or look behind anything. I’ll say “it’s in there!” and he’ll say “I can’t see it”. Then I will walk over, move the milk or whatever, and there it is!!! I find it very annoying!!! My dad does this too, so I totally think it’s a guy thing.

*groan* I’m with you on this one – I don’t know if it makes it worse or not that my husband readily admits to having this problem, since he does nothing to rectify it. It reminds me of this cartoon.

@sweetadelineXO – I too am afflicted by this disease. Two nights ago I couldn’t find my passport (in my defense we just moved and everything was still in boxes <except we moved 6 weeks ago and I should probably be unpacked by now>) for our cruise next month. To his wonderful self I credit minimal eye-rolling, muttering under breath, and total support of my oblivious nature. 


OP – we.. just kind of can’t help it. I will tell you, if you come up with an organization system (IE a key holder by the front door so you NEVER have to look for keys) it might help. I know it does for me. I can follow an organizational system…. just not make one.
