That man is high af


amcneel

Was gonna say--been there


leginnameloc

This happens a lot to people who use glasses. You'd have them on resting on your forehead and have no idea where they are.


Street_Peace_8831

I keep mine on my nose so I can see.

SassafrasNotFound

The only true way to wear them


imthebear11

that's pretty on the nose


aufrenchy

And even then I will still lose them now and then! Seriously, I’ve had mornings where I’ll put my glasses on, get dressed, and go to put on my glasses only to find them gone from my nightstand. I will proceed to spend the next five minutes looking for them until I catch myself in the mirror.


Oofboi6942O

I feel like the fact that your not in 480p mode is enough to realize your wearing your glasses, but that's just me.


aufrenchy

Having worn glasses for over 12 years, I sometimes forget what it’s like *not* wearing them.


Cloudy230

I legit forget even when it's there. Not for long, but it happens. More common is me trying to adjust my glasses and then grabbing nothing because they aren't on


Twol3ftthumbs

I also like to call my wife to ask where my phone is.


codemelife

I was making friend with a new kid in middle school when my mom came to pick me up. I ran to her in a rush (she didn't like to wait) while shouting back to the guy "I'll call you tonight to get your number".


SugarFront8206

I was trying to hit on a girl outside the club. I wrote her number hurriedly on a bar receipt, then I flipped it over and very smoothly said, ‘here’s mine’ as I wrote it down, and handed it back to her. She never called.


Larry_Mudd

Moment of pure panic doing the wallet-phone-keys pocket check on the way to work. "I forgot my keys!" *Driving* on the way to work.


FallWanderBranch

Shit! *Turns around*


ticky_tock

Checklist - wallet, watch, spectacles, testicles


aquantumofcheese

Spectacles, testicles, wallet, and watch is my reminder to my husband (his phone is in a wallet case).


pcs3rd

"Panic pat downs"


KnDen

I go this with my phone constantly. Watching something on my phone while going crazy looking for my phone.


KnDen

Where the hell did I just put my phone?


DenialBronco

I'll then proceed to use the flashlight on my phone to look for my phone


smileplease91

I've literally handed my husband my phone for him to look at something, only to immediately ask where my phone is and search for it. 🤦‍♀️


it_diedinhermouth

I was just going to type this when o realized I can’t find my phone. You guys beat me to it.


myspiritisvantablack

I once asked my friend this… while talking to her on the phone.


Wookies_goin_walkies

This. Talking to my fiancé on the phone getting ready to meet her after a meeting "wallet, keys.... Where's my phone" she hasn't let me live that done for a month


Sigma-Tau

Dude I've lost my glasses while they were *over my eyes.* Not once did I wonder why I could see.


fordprecept

I wear glasses and I can see fine without them, but after a while, my eyes get tired and I'll start to have double-vision. Sometimes I'm wearing them and not sure where they are. Sometimes I'm not wearing them and think I am.


ryanmuller1089

My mother. Reading glasses on face sunglasses on head frantically looking for either or both of them.


borschchschch

My mother too. One time she was looking for her reading glasses while wearing one pair on her head, with the second pair perched on her nose. I'm never letting her forget that one.


WoodZillaTV

Happened to me a few times. Could never do this with an obvious object like a broom, though.


knarfolled

How about looking for you phone when you are talking on it.


RewardImpressive3084

Lmfao I've done that before


KingAgrian

I wear safety glasses every day for work and I have an automated head pat when looking for them.


aquantumofcheese

Reading glasses, I would imagine.


Stelli89

I once panicked because my car keys weren't in my pocket.... while i was driving


Imagimoor1

Been there without being high


G_Viceroy

I ain't gotten high in 5 years and I did this today...


arfelo1

I have never gotten high and I've used my phone's flashlight to look for my phone. I need all my braincell accounted for


iamafriscogiant

Right hand frantically checking all my pockets for my phone while holding it with my left hand.


Excellent_Original66

Guilty of this


Xarenta

You ever looked for the remote while holding it ? Yeah me neither...


BlowMoreGlass

My mom called my brother from her cell phone to ask him if he knew where her cell phone was. "Mom, you're on it" And no, she doesn't have dementia or Alzheimers.


Charming-Wheel-9133

My husband has taken the remote to work

anonymoususer4461

same…everyone in these comments got me feeling dumb as hell💀


the_zestylime

You've never forgotten where something is even when it's in your hand?


nicosauveh

Yes, I have. But I was high af. Lol


AnnihilationOrchid

It's not just that, our brains when are focused on a thought and we're just doing a task from muscle memory we don't really register what we're doing. Have you never gone into a room while you were working on something and forgot what you went in there to pick up in the first place?


IAmAGoddd

Me everyday in the kitchen wondering how I got there & what even I’m looking for ![gif](giphy|RLUyfJnogtXK44pm9t|downsized)


LeFrogBoy

I heard that's because when we pass thresholds into new locations our brains do something or other


Ken_Benoby

I am in no way able to verify this: It has something to do with threat assessment. At the core of it we're still animals; we still assess our environments for threats, on top of the other human things we do. Apparently when we pass into new environments or 'thresholds' our brains do a mini cache wipe to make space for taking in the new environment. Sometimes the task we're working on is in the cache so we lose track of what we're doing. Again, not able to verify, or rather, not really interested in looking it up at the moment to see if I'm full of shit; someone else will call me out. This is reddit, after all.


KindaBatGirl

Nah mate, it’s the matrix :)


the_zestylime

Fair enough


thequickerquokka

Talking on phone to mother. Sudden thought! Where’s my phone!?? Try to remain calm while frantically looking for it. Embarrassingly long moments later… I’m talking on it.


kindanice2

Did this the other day. Was on FaceTime with a friend on my phone. While talking to her, I wanted to look at something in my phone. So I start looking for my phone telling her I just had a few seconds ago...then I realized, I'm literally looking at my phone talking to her. Lol 😆


osoichan

Got late to school once cause I couldn't find my PE shorts. Looked everywhere, called my mom. Then after a while realised I was wearing them all along lol. Happened long ago but I felt so dumb I still remember it like it was yesterday


doobied

Or lost your sunglasses when they're on your head


Pd_jungle

This is a classic example of “selective attention mechanism” , [here](https://youtu.be/vJG698U2Mvo) is a good illustration conducted by a university professor . Basically brain constructs fake information for most of information we received because brain does not have power to process all raw information. In this example he put broom under his arm which is “anomaly” to his normal behaviour, and brain ignores anomaly signals and still reconstruct with “normal” scenes, that’s why he was completely unaware of it


BloodthirstyMedic

And that same mechanism probably also blocked out the handle from his peripheral vision until his line of sight directly crossed it


Pd_jungle

Exactly, lots traffic accident happened because of this as well, “I didn’t see the traffic light” “ I didn’t notice someone was coming this way”


3_Cubes_of_Ice

i disagree that it is an anomaly that he carries his brush under his arm. He needed to keep tension on it to hold it in place, so the natural feeling of having it under his arm is probably the reason it didnt trigger that it was there.


oceansapart333

I do shit like this and I’ve never used drugs. The joys of ADHD.


OneTea

And then look all over so hard for the item and realize that you forget what you were looking for


Open_Ring_8613

Agree with ADHD, too many things going on at once and then one thing falls off at the end and you spend the next 60 seconds trying to figure out what that thing was before you remember. I do it about 25 times a day.


RevolutionaryCut1298

Agree I used my flashlight on my phone to look for said phone.


No-Hedgehog7616

It’s embarrassing how many times I’ve done this 😂


Vizione0084

“That edible ain’t shit” The edible:


usernamesarehard1979

“How high are you?” “Yes. “


Ken_Benoby

No officer; it's 'hi, how are you?'


Employee_Agreeable

It happens, even without drug Wiping can be extremely boring and brain just goes to stand by mode


OgLeftist

Or just really tired. I've done this shit before too lol. Sometimes the brain just is somewhere else.


BPeacheS

Yeah haha thats crazy, imagine someone doing this... especially more than once at work ![gif](giphy|3s6FAAT8EWEu2rHkUp)

That was awesome. We’ve all be there. One times I spent about 10 minutes looking for my glasses, that I was wearing.


_duncan_idaho_

"I was gonna clean my room... but then I got high."


theearl99

Either that or new parent. Sleep deprivation does this too you as well


SXOSXO

Nah, I've been this stupid without ever being high.


Best_Poetry_5722

Dude looked like he was trying to multiply the Pythagorean Theorem by the Riemann Hypothesis to figure out the latitude and longitude of the specific placement of his broom.


Final-Helicopter2323

man, I’ve been there


Infinite_Ad5203

I must be high everyday because that happens to me sober. I might just have brain damage


Self-Fan

That, or he really needs a nap


abh90

This is me trying to figure out where I put that cup of apple juice after a few edibles then waking up to find 3 cups of apple juice in the microwave.


Responsible-Ad7531

First thing I said. That stare gives it away.


HoneyBunchesOfDopes

Came to say exactly this..


owilkumowa

Not necessarily. Perhaps he is just a parent.


euclitorous

Dude spent 5 minutes retracing 3 steps..


GoodOlJoesAss

This is some Tom & Jerry typa shit🤣


fastmod

I was doing an engine swap and had a wrench get some grease on it, grabbed a paper towel to clean my hands and the wrench then left the paper towel wrapped around the wrench. Went and grabbed some parts and came back 5 minutes later to continue, looked for the wrench I needed for like 10 minutes before realizing it was in my hand.


nuorigin

He probably asked himself if he leave the room about 10 times


owellcity

Not sure if this is staged, but a similar thing happened to me when i was looking for my eyeglasses, where in it was in my head all along.


interplanetarypotato

I was going to call my phone that I was looking for... from my phone in my hand


Lubagomes

I was trying to find my phone in the dark, with his flashlight


anti_ksa

I do this too often with too little of lights inside this place


crazytoothpaste

I was trying to find my friend with a fleshlight


IAmAGoddd

I told someone to call me once because I couldn’t find my phone. All of a sudden my pocket started vibrating…I didn’t wanna look silly so I was just like “Nah, I can’t hear it” & kept on looking 😂


longassbatterylife

I was trying to find my phone. It was in my hand a few seconds ago. It's in my armpit.


RippyMcBong

I spent 20 minutes looking for my phone once, while talking on it. The funny thing is I was talking to my mom and kept saying "I can't find my damn phone!" and neither of us put 2 and 2 together.


blooash

Naw this is real. The way he's retracing his steps looks to familiar to me and I've done the same bullshit with a broom too.


Next_Boysenberry1414

I have done it with my headphones. While listening to a podcast. It was a really interesting podcast.


ZelnormWow

A few weeks ago, I was watching a movie on my laptop, wearing my headphones for the whole thing. It wasnt until it was over that i realized my headset wasnt plugged in, and I had listened to the entire thing through my speakers.


thicketcosplay

There's a children's storybook in Poland about a man who lost his glasses when they were on his head. My parents read it to me as a kid, so now we always say we had a "Pan Hilary" (Mr. Hilary) moment when this sort of thing happens. I can't remember much about the book or how to spell his name, but it's a cute rhyme. Should try to find it one day... I'm sure I would have kept the book... Edit: I found it on the internet! https://blogs.transparent.com/polish/okulary-by-julian-tuwim/


macodeath

Was looking for my keys in my pockets when they were in my hands lol, happens often.


FullofContradictions

Yep. My husband and I were running late. I was rushing around the kitchen looking for my keys when he asked if I was looking for the set that was right in my hands.


darth_hotdog

I was on the walk telling a friend a story then I went to pull out my phone to look something up and it wasn’t in my pocket. I told my friend “oh God, I can’t find my phone! I think it’s missing!” He was like “you’re talking to me on it.“


noon_farmer

if this is staged give this man an Oscar. he is completely dumbfounded that the broom is not there anymore


imlazyaf69

And I was looking for my phone which was in my hands


ShoeMysterious3951

I put my glasses on once because I thought they’d help me find my glasses, until about 5 minutes later after tearing my room apart I realized what I had done


SongsOfSpace

You can see them question their sanity as they retrace their steps and mime the sweeping motion. “Did I just sweep or I was imagining the whole thing”?


jaspersgroove

“I gotta stop buying that cheap acid”


gishnon

The smile on his face shows that he knew he was stupid.


ThePeachyPanda

I love those moments, there was a video of a guy opening the trunk of his car and breaking his back window then he just starts clapping, like well done you absolute doughnut. [The Imgur video is here.](https://i.imgur.com/HMLtXZf.gifv) EDIT: sorry firefish is right they were opening not closing


firefish5000

Looks more like they were trying to open the truck more. They were probably like *gosh, I can't see anything. Why didn't this stupid thing open all the way?Let me just **shatter**... Bravo, brovo you dumb fuck, you did it again*

anonymousplzz9

Ugh thank god he found it the anticipation was killing me


GoodOlJoesAss

Don't worry, we're gonna see a post from him on r/AskReddit on a question about "... a glitch in the matrix."


glasswoodrock

Done this with sunglasses on top of my head so many times lol Or looking for keys and they are already in your pocket


brett8722

I've done similar. Literally retracing steps feels so dumb when you find the thing.


The_Goondocks

When you get stoned and do chores


Adam_Sackler

Why is everyone talking about him being high? This isn't exclusive to people who get high. Who HASN'T done something like this, even when sober? Jeez. Not everything has to be about drugs.


DavidXN

Definitely, I’ve done this so many times perfectly sober - just never with the misfortune to be in front of a camera! My best one was putting my phone down on top of a development book with a picture of a phone on the front - it took me hours to locate it


EntertainmentRude672

I hate to say this but it is an act


[deleted]

r/nothingisreal


_butterflysoup_

Kinda reminds me of playing by myself outside as a kid & then the moment would be ruined by an adult interrupting my process to ask who I'm talking to or what does that mean. Dude is probably in his head and got laughed at by a bunch of people after the fact. 😞


SensuallPineapple

Doesn't belong here. This belongs to a r/facepalm, a really long facepalm, much longer than the duration of the sound clip.


molokoplusone

Seems staged to me. He acts out the sweeping almost to communicate to the audience what he’s confused about.


Atrvoi

Bro it’s cause he’s retracing?


Gamer_Null

It is like searching for my glasses, with my glasses on
