Yeah, so, I was driving to work and thinking about all the things I need to do once I get there.
“I need to send that email. I need to work on the video script. I need to fix our Google Plus page.” You know, a bunch of silly to-do list things.
Right as I was getting on the freeway, I noticed I was listening to the “Cars” soundtrack.
“Why am I listening to this crap?” I thought. “OH SHIT!”
And sitting the back seat was Calvin.
I forgot to drop him off at school! I was completely on autopilot and was driving to work without even thinking.
“I’m not going to school,” he said.
“You’re going to school. I went the wrong way,” I told him.
Every morning I drop Calvin off at preschool and then drive to work. Why today I skipped the preschool I have no idea. I’m so glad I didn’t get all the way to the office with him.
Have you ever drive somewhere on autopilot? I’d love to read your stories in the comments.
