My memory isn't so good, and I tend to remember parts of recent events, but not all of the details. Often I'll leave the house, and not remember at all locking the door just a couple minutes prior, even though I'll vividly remember other details of my preparation to leave the apartment. I'd go back, and always find the door locked. 100%. I never forgot the things that I thought I forgot. I think about similar things... leaving lights on when I leave for work, or forgetting to lock my car back when I owned a car, or forgetting to flush the toilet. I used to go back and check these things, and I never actually forgot them; I just forgot that I did indeed do them. Now I have to make a conscious effort to not second-guess myself, and just assume that I did things correctly. I fret about it for a minute, and then I just put it out of my mind. Not once has this failed me.
