Working memory can be thought of as our shortest term memory; it's the information we hold in our mind in order to get things done. These are some common ways working memory deficits show up in our day to day lives:
Having to dig a box mix out of the trash several times to re-read steps when baking
Walking into a room but forgetting why you're there
Forgetting a new acquaintance's name seconds after you've heard it
