Americans Have Over 332 Forgetful Moments Every Year

These days there is so much to remember, whether it’s a password, a person’s name, or just what to bring home for dinner, so it isn’t uncommon to forget things now and again. But according to a new poll, forgetfulness is something most people experience pretty often!

A new survey finds that the average person forgets something about SIX times a week which translates to about 332 forgetful moments each year.

While forgetting things may seem innocent, it has caused trouble for people as about 24% of Americans say they’ve had a falling out with a friend or family member because of a forgetful moment or have been dumped for forgetting something.

As for the most common things people are forgetting, they include:

  • A password
  • Things when I grocery shop
  • Misplace my keys
  • What I went into a room for
  • People’s names after being introduced
  • A word on the tip of my tongue
  • What day it is
  • Misplace cell phone
  • Forget where the car was parked
