Due to a sudden brain fart (absentmindedness), have you done anything that made you say, "Oh crap, wtf did I just do?"

Examples:
- Pouring water in your cereal instead of milk
- Putting on two different pairs of shoes
- Walking into the locker/change rooms of the opposite sex (don't bite me, most of them are binary)

My personal experience was a bit embarrassing: I walked out of a fitting room in only my underwear - without thinking - straight into the store full of people watching.

- writing/typing words that I didn't intend to
- calling people by the wrong names because their face matches the name I'm thinking of
- pushing a pull door even though there is a sign that CLEARLY states pull

Pouring soda into cereal

Trying to open doors that were locked, not noticing the 'Please use other set of doors. Thank you!' sign while leaving a restaurant. Oh, and pouring milk into a cup that had water in it. In my defense, I'm getting sick. And when I get sick, brain farts reign. Especially if I'm fuzzy-headed.

I've actually done this before. It makes the cereal smell weird.

Walked into a female bathroom and only realized it upon seeing the lack of urinals.

Luckily, it was empty.

I am afraid I get these all the time. I am currently taking driving lessons and I make silly little errors all the time. One of the most common ones is taking turns too fast and not slowing down when I should. I often stall the car inadvertently by setting off In the wrong gear and slip down hills because I miss the biting point as its higher when you're up a hill. Lots of incredibly silly things like that. I end up kicking myself and doing it again! I am better than before.

Other silly little brain farts include:

1. Using my London Oyster travelcard on the ID scanner when arriving in work each morning - they only work on the London transport network and definitely not in corporate buildings!
2. Bad short term memory - I am not senile or anything but I often forget things someone told me just a while ago.
3. Most serious case was forgetting my bag on a train. Fortunately I was able to recover it.

Is there anyway to overcome brain farts? I don't think there is sadly. They just happen!

Did the same at a franchise restaurant in Kansas City without realizing my error. I was dumbfounded by the layout and color choice: hot pink. All I can think was wtf???! Then a woman walked in. Bingo. Gotta go, can't stay.

Caught a taxi and completely forgot MY street name. Had to guide him back and only remembered after seeing the street sign. Had been living there for years

Putting milk in the cupboard and cereal in the fridge . . . Once it took me a few hours to find my mistake.
