pump gas. pay clerk. walk home.

Want to feel perfectly normal?
Want to feel better about your occasional absent-mindedness?

In the city of Wuppertal in western Germany, a man pulled into a gas station for a fill up. After the car was full, the man paid for the gas -- and then, forgetting his car, walked home.

The car sat at the pump for about an hour before a worker at the gas station finally notified police. The police were able to locate the owner and notified him that his car was still at the station.

"He just forgot about it and walked off home," said a local police officer.

The owner promptly returned to the station and drove home (and no, he had not been drinking nor reports of Alzheimer's).

now if he could only remember what he did with his wife.
