A Photographic Memory

Post by Mo on Wed Sep 16, 2015 12:16 pm

So I have the worst memory. I have a friend who loves watching movies and he'll ask about a scene in a movie and I'll have this blank look on my face. On one occasion I didn't remember a scene of a movie that we watched together while he was visiting a few months ago.

I could meet someone they give me their name and 10 minutes later I forget what their name is.

Now here's the weird part. I could clean the carpet in a house once and drive bye it a year later and remember the floor plan and were the carpet was in that floor plan. Does that happen to you guys or am I just a freak.

What a relief I thought I was weird. That's true about remembering personal things about the customers too.

I started to clean for the kids of my custies now. Now If start cleaning for their kids someone shoot me

Forget our anniversary, some of my kids birthday, yet I can spit out charged amount for certain customers.
Ya, were freaks.
