GAG'ers, what are some items you forgot to pack when departing on holiday?

We all know the story: we leave for a sunny destination, arrive there in our hotel and little James asks "mom, where is my toothbrush?". Oops, tooth brushes still in the bathroom at home :o

So what are some items you forgot when leaving on holiday?

I didn't go on holiday this year but items like a hairdryer, shampoo, toothpaste or on one occasion even socks have been on my list of forgotten items!
I'm curious is someone will say "my wife" hahaha 8)

  • I have forgotten lots of items each time I'm flying overseas! 🙈🙉🙊 Each time the list is different.

    There was once when I was flying to Korea and I forgot my toothbrush, had to buy it at the airport. Another time I forgot to bring along my mp3 when I was flying to Canada. Long distance traveling, music is a must! Thankfully I had an extra one in my bag, but not as many songs tho :/ I've even forgotten to bring my identity card along with me 😣 Thankfully the absentminded me has never forgotten to bring along her passport everytime!

    • Hahaha I recognize myself... absent minded? What do you mean?
      Oops where did I leave my mobile? Wallet? Watch?
      What else did I have in the car when I drove here? Oh I remember, my girl... sorry darling :o

    • Haha yeah ladies are incredibly accurate in those duties.
      I suppose she's shouting things like "Jacques, is 17 shorts enough? Should I take 3 or 4 pairs of long trousers for you?".

    • I guess the nr 1 is the most difficult one to replace, and the lounging clothes may be fairly expensive to buy new :o Bye bye holiday budget :-(

    • Well I guess that's a reasonably easy object to replace :D
      Most malls, pharmacies or supermarkets will be able to provide a new one...
      No joke, on hilday in Sri Lanka I've seen people do it with their finger, in the river, when 10 meters further downstream there was an elephant drinking!

    • Haha I'm quite certain that in many holiday venues they have one or another (copy of a) cheap brand for a couple of pounds :D
      After 3 weeks they fall apart but as long as they survice a 2 week holiday it's fine!

    • And they were like "Don't think!"
      not thinking gets you screwed over

  • I always forget my pens ugh

    • Haha in this digital world there may be solutions... but of course if you need to complete a form you're in trouble.
      I also always tend to forget objects, not only when I'm on holiday.
      I'm a little absent minder. A little hum hum... a little bit very much 8)

    • Currently writing an autobiography.. But I'm not a published writer. Yet.
      I write short stories too and poems :)

    • That's a good exercise... later when you have a job and you need to write things like important mails, meeting reports, procedures or so, it will help you a lot :D

    • Oh yes, that's a frequent one, especially in countries where you wouldn't expect to need them... fortunately hotel receptions often have a few spair sets :D

    • I will always remember that time I was in Germany and I didn't realize the outlet was different from American. Never make that mistake again, I had to buy one but it was so inconvenient.

    • I've even had it in countries like France or Ireland which are very close to Belgium... you just don't realize until you're there :o

  • Toothbrush, luckily I was able to buy it at the hotel. They had a vending machine full of them
