Ooops ….. This is a word we use so many times and do not even realise we are using it , it has become so entrenched in our daily lives , just how many times we use it depends on just how silly or lazy we have been . Like we do our shopping for example and we go off in a rush or online in a rush so sure that we know what we need without double checking . No double checking is what we do or not do because we are in a hurry and these days we are always in a hurry right ? Back to the shopping we rush through , then when we get it home we put it all away and all is well right ? Nope not a bit of it because during the week or month or however you shop you suddenly run out of this and that several times …ooops …If only you had done the double check ….
Sometimes what we forgot does not matter that much and we can wait till next time to get what we need , but sometimes it can be a real problem , like if you forgot the toilet paper , or another tub of butter , because we were in such a hurry we forgot to check how much is in the tub …ooopps now what will we use to butter the toast ? It is all ok if you can just nick down to the shop and get more but sometimes some of the things we forget can make life quite difficult but we did it to ourselves in our ooops moment . We didn’t stop and think …hmmmm…does anyone even think anymore ?? lol Somehow I very much doubt it , but it is high time we did don’t you think ?
Sometimes our oopps moment is a right royal pain , if we are in so much of a hurry so much of our time imagine rushing out to go somewhere then half way there oooops we run out of petrol …now that is a huge oops and can mess us right up for the day while we get it fixed . That big oooppss just cost us not only time but money too if we are late for work and get docked for being late , so best we stop rushing about and take time out to check what we need to do before we go rushing out . Rushing out and about is what we seem to do more and more these days so we create more and more oops moments ,we really , really need to slow down and smell the roses before there are no more roses.
Don’t you love it when the oops moment is a funny one because someone else did it ? Now yes I know it is not nice to laugh when someone messes up but trust me sometimes it is funny . Like when hubby says it is ok we have more of that we don’t need anymore only to find after all shopping done and sorted and put away that ooops …errrm that was the last one even though I told you we had some it seems we didn’t ooopps bad hubby you didn’t check properly ….You like everyone else these days was in too much of a hurry to check it properly … Had you done so you now would not have to either go without or go get another one …This is almost as bad as not putting labels on things saying it is ok I will remember what is in that ….yeah right …lol . Some people can’t even remember what they went into a room for …lol yep me too sometimes .
Thinking along these lines yes we do have way too many oops moments in our lives because the world is way too fast these days but I guess as long as we don’t do ourselves too much harm or cost ourselves too much money we might just get away with oopps moments . As long as we at least try to keep these moments to a minimum we just might survive but really we need to up our game to be able to keep things in order and in order not to hurt ourselves too much . Thankfully the oops moments of running out of ink in pens no longer matters or running out of coins for the TV that used to be coin in the slot , man that was along time ago ..lol ..but boy they were ooopps moments big time way back then …
So before you do anything anymore how about taking time to check and double check whatever you are doing or where you are going to avoid too many oops moments . Really does not take too long to do either and we can save ourselves a lot of trouble and a lot of oopps moments . The only people who can have oops moments and get away with them are those on TV as if they mess up all they have to do is stop and re-do the take again but life does not give us this option , we cannot re-run life . So to all these oopps moments I say nick off … lol and will try not to have anymore , no more oopps moments let us be more careful ….and try to bye bye the oops moments. ..
