Times I Am Not As Important As I Think I Am

When my physical therapist laughs just as hard at another patient’s joke as they have at mine two tables down from me.

When I think a character is no longer in a TV show because they aren’t in the episode I’m watching.

When I expect a store to be open when I arrive even though I never checked the time it closes.
