And this seemed odd enough.
Today I had a weird car ride home. Which I might add, wouldn't have even happened if the coach I usually get wasn't a full hour late, and by that time my dad had decided to come and pick me up from college himself. Although at first thought I should have been home long before the coach even caught its first glimpse of Audley, maybe even Madley, it turned out that wasn't going to be the case today.
Let me just throw a little bit of geography in here to be more confusing - taking a right out of the college entrance brings you to a roundabout where we would usually take the first exit onto the A51. You then come to a second roundabout and continue along the A51. Simple, right?
It's pretty tight to take the first exit coming from the college at the first roundabout, and my dad usually misses it because he doesn't go near Reaseheath often enough to remember it's there. However, having been a little embarrassed at getting lost both on the way there and back the other day, he purposely stated out loud that, hey, we're going to actually take the first exit on this roundabout today and not get lost! Of course this brings everyone's attention to the road, especially myself because I'm learning to drive and would really appreciate remembering the way to my own college and back >.>
Anyway, after a few minutes down this road, we begin to see signs with place names we'd not seen before, even going as far as past Leighton Hospital. We don't live near enough to my college to know any of the area around there so we were a little freaked. But we trundled around a bit before finding our way back into Crewe and then on to home.
Pretty weird? You might say. However, anyone with a brain right now would have looked at google maps and noticed - oh you must have taken the wrong exit at the second roundabout, duh!
But the odd thing was
None of us in the car remember getting to another roundabout after the first one
We don't remember taking any turnings after the first roundabout
All we remember is driving straight down that road
Is is possible that everyone in the car to completely forget a good minute or two of time causing us to end up lost somewhere?
What if we had hit someone? None of us remember anything and I'm certain we were all alert and on the lookout(or... we thought we were)
How often does this happen and we don't realise?
How often have I carried out a task only to completely forget I even had the intention of doing it minutes later?
And most of the time, we wouldn't even realise we've forgotten anything at all, would we?
