I’m exactly like this. I want an iPhone. Srsly.
For example, my wife says, “Make sure you check the mail today.” I figure I’ll do that after I get the kids from the school bus. The bus arrives between 2:10 and 2:19. If I set the reminder for 2:10 and the bus doesn’t arrive until 2:19, buy the time I get the kids off of the bus, chat with the other parents and make my way back to the car, it’s 2:30 and I’m wrapped up in discussing the kids’ school day.
And I’ve forgotten about the mail.
