I kind of think I was always this way but I can’t be sure because of the way my memory works. I make stupid mistakes, I knock things over, and I don’t foresee the consequences of things I do before I do them.
Today’s example was quite unfortunate and I can’t get away with it I will definitely have to confess to it and that’s too bad.
As one of the tasks I do to feed the animals it’s to make a stew or goulash of food for the pig. I don’t actually make the food, but I make its final preparations where I mix the goulash with the pig pellets and bring it out to feed him around 7ish.
So I’ve got a pot ready and I put five big scoops of mixture of potatoes and cabbage and carrots and other various vegetables and fill up about 1/3 of the dish. I then go out to the other room and get four handfuls of pellets which is approximately equivalent to one of the containers I found and I bring it back out tonight dump it in with the goulash and it looks like a very small amount. It doesn’t look right.
Then I realize what I’ve done is I’ve put the pig food in the kitchen goulash and not the prepared dish for the pig. The goulash that has to last me at least another day or two is now contaminated with pig pellets that will dissolve and are difficult to calculate the quantity.
A stupid mistake. Not the end of the world, but another addition to the checklist of ways I feed the animals wrong in the eyes of their master. I hate making mistakes but I really hate making mistakes over and over.
At least most of the time I only make each mistake once but that still doesn’t really help in the grand scheme of things. I won’t say the food is ruined. He might. We’ll see. But for now I just have to wait till he comes home.
