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...
