For those wondering how these things happen, it's actually less to do with stupidity and more to do with expectations, and it actually happens very often, including to you (although, probably not in such extreme cases).

Basically, when you make something routine, your brain builds up a pattern, that's HOW you make something habit and routine. However, when you skip something in this habit or routine, or get thrown off track, your brain basically 'shifts' so that you subconsciously notice things the same way you did during your patterns and don't notice how they really are until you consciously realize them (usually by being 'shocked out' of it), so even if you miss a beat, you react as if you didn't.

So, when this guy followed his routine he could have easily just put the keys in a different pocket, breaking it slightly. He's so used to reaching for his regular pocket that he never bothered to check the other one and he thought it got lost when he was really just holding it in his hands. And even WHEN he unlocked the door and got into his house, he still consciously believed he lost the key when he just subconsciously missed a part of the pattern. Get it?

That's how you can walk out of your house and go to school and only realize you're not wearing your backpack when you're half-way there, or how you might break a morning routine and feel like you have to poop when you SWORE you just went an hour or so earlier, or how you go to lock up your work at the end of the day and have to re-do it 5 times because you swear you skip steps each time.

It has nothing to do with actual 'intelligence', but just how well your brain can form and break patterns and have you adapt to it.

On several occasions I have hung up on calls suddenly after saying "Wait a minute, sorry, can I call you back, I think I just lost my phone"

I feel like theses are becoming the new greentexts - either utter ******** or proof that it's indeed possible to be too stupid to insult.

This is not funny, and if you thumb it up, you should feel ashamed.

I can guarantee that this isn't true. I will happily place any wager of any kind with anyone to bet that this did not happen. And I would win your money/kidneys because this is not true. Fact.

REALLY....and i mean REALLY, i know that sometimes you thumb up made up stories because there are funny and...let's say, at some point, believable, i did too.    
   
But this, THIS is too much, how does anybody believes this 						****					 or even thinks that it's funny? come on guys, we are better than this...   
   
To be honest, i don't know if i'm lactating with rage or lactating with disappointment.

I'm sensing a pattern that people from Tumblr are not aware that they have found said object that they were looking for and continue to find it like idiots...

What did the opera singer do when she was locked out of the house?   
   
She sang the scales till she found the right key.
