You are leaving your house for the day, and 30 seconds away you realize you forgot something. What would you go back for?

Asked by ibstubro (18770points) September 11th, 2015

I frequently have to return for my cell phone, and to set the house security alarm.

Occasionally realizing the garage door did not go down.

Condoms.. 30 seconds is nothing so I would pretty much return for anything even if I am pretty sure I wouldn’t need it but it might come in handy.

That close, I’d go back for anything I needed. And I have- often. If I am further along, it has to be pretty important; phone, $, earrings ( I know, I know )

30 seconds means you are about 100 feet down the street if walking, haven’t moved the car yet if driving. So it takes you a minute and a half to go back in the house, pick up what you for got, and go back to where you wee when you remembered.

So, to answer the question, anything.

I’m so forgetful, I wouldn’t even put it past me to forget to wear pants.

Anything that I thought I would need , it means I haven’t quite backed out of the driveway yet.

Still going back for the wife. Oh, and as this is Texas, my sidearm, glove compartment Glock and 12ga pump for the Easy Rider Rifle Rack on the back window.
