    Just lists lists lists! I can’t remember anything and will get distracted by everything else and forget the one thing I went in for unless it’s written down.

    I hate it when supermarkets change their layouts though, because it confuses me so much. I also always use the self checkout or pay by card because I will get flustered if I’m asked for correct change because I can’t do mental arithmetic any more.

    I have a better time now they have contactless I was always leaving my bank card in machines. Now I just leave on random shelves or in the toilets.
