I zoned out a lot in school. I just can't listen for long periods of time. I am listening and then thinking of other things and I don't even realize I had zoned out.

Major problem here. I often zone when I'm stressed out in a situation like work and I'm staring at someone before I know it. When I realise I'm appearing rude I just pray no one noticed. Can't tell you how many times I've embarassed myself or it has caused me problems when others don't understand.

Often I am tearing myself apart for appearing ignorant, like I don't fit in, anxious and all around uncomfortable. But I realise others don't know that till I tell them or they give me a chance to tell them.

Classic: I was at a relatives house and was thinking why does that daughter seem so familiar she doesn't look much like her mom???? Then I realised I was staring and I'm sure she noticed it :oops: :roll: It came to me later that she looks like a woman I went to college with 15 years ago. Yeah one of my traits is face recognition :wink:
