How do people end up leaving so much food out for extended periods?

So many posts on food left out overnight. How does this happen to so many hounds? It seems like people who value good food and enjoy cooking would not be the ones to forget to follow through and put it away. You spend your time and money on the food, eat half of it, then completely forget about it? I don't get it. Do you not clean your kitchen after dinner? Or even go in there for a glass of water at any period between dinner and bedtime and notice the pot on the stove? I can see forgetting to put food away if I'm really drunk or something, but that is not my usual state and hopefully not normal for most of us...
Don't always clean the kitchen after dinner.
Get glass of water from bathroom.
Expect someone else to put away the food.
It's not that hard to do.
It's just an oversight--many of us have busy lives, busy careers, etc., and it's easy to overlook something. Not much different than forgetting where you placed your keys. I've done it and, yes, I DO clean my kitchen.
Or alcohol or sex, as per Veggo.
