This post is kind of divided to three little parts: part one typing, part two searching, and part three taking things out of my wallet.
Just the other day, I was with my group working on our psychology project. We were supposed to look at the results we got on our survey and write a few page essays. I usually don’t mind typing, I am not the fastest at it, but I type all of my papers so I do have plenty of practice. However, when the rest of my group were watching me type, I basically forgot how to do it. All of a sudden I was making tons of mistakes and I was looking for letters, and my sentences were not making any sense. I was using my friend’s keyboard, which is a little different than mine, and I was not used. However, I kept making mistakes, because I felt like I was being watched and it was making me nervous.
I am also bad at finding things when someone is directing me and watching me get it, like really bad, I might as well be wearing a blindfold. Yesterday I had this conversation with my boyfriend.
“Hey, can you pass me my phone?”
“Where is it?”
“On the bed”
“Where on the bed?”
“Next to the red pillow.”
“I don’t see a red pillow.”
“It’s right in front of you.”
“RIGHT in front of you.”
“Oh.” (Pause) “I still don’t see your phone.”
At this point, he usually sighs and goes to get it himself, probably while questioning why I’m still in his life.
I am really bad at taking out money or my debit card from my wallet when a casher is watching me. Some times, I cannot find it. Other times, it is somehow stuck and impossible to take out and almost always something else falls out with it.
