I an=dmit my memory is not great, short memory os reaally shot. But give me a day and I can remember.
Now my husband he has a memory like a sive he forgets where we are going sometimes and will take the wrong road or miss a turn off. Yep his memory stinks.
Now my SIL to be now he had to go to do something extra for his work it up grades him. Any how he had to be some where at 5.45 am one day this week annd because I remembered and asked him what time he was leaving he had forgotten, Nice one there it costs a lot of money to do this. And he is paying forit.
My boys [men they call them selves] well they forget things all the time be it that we are away on holiday and they ring up to see what time we will be home.
They forget about birthdays even their own.
But just let us females forget something and we get jumped on. As I tell them I have a excuse but they don't.
Why is it when the shoe is on the other foot we are not to say anything.
My DH is so bad if we pick some of our elderly friends to take to church they constantly remind him off where we are going as he has gotten lost several times on a drive we have made for the last 15 years.

Hi Kathy!

I would have a question similar to Desiree's. Has he had a doctor check on this AND is he on medication for his memory loss? If he's getting lost on a short trip that is very familiar to him I'd be concerned that something is going on that needs to be investigated.

Just a thought...
