Ya set the damn things down and they disappear into the 5th Dimension.
I’m not even joking.
A couple years ago I was out in the garage messing around and couldn’t find a cheap Phillips screwdriver anywhere.
I know I had some, they just disappeared.
I can hear you saying now, how would you know, that garage is a disaster area?
Trust me, it isn’t that big. A quick look should be all it takes.
Sure, I still have my Snap On set tucked away in my tool box but I like to have a couple cheapies laying around for those quick and simple jobs.
So I got pissed off and went down to Horror Fright and bough a half a dozen of the damn things.
I swear I have had over a hundred of the damn things in the last 40 years and they just disappear.
You will recognize this next problem instantly.
As soon as I had plenty of Phillips screwdrivers laying around again, I couldn’t find any of the cheap Flat Blades anymore.
I swear to you, they just up and walk away.
An hour ago I went looking for a cheap Phillips screwdriver.
I have no idea where six fucking screwdrivers went in a little over two years but they aren’t out in that garage.
I looked in all of my tool boxes and finally found one, with a fucked up tip.
So I dug out the Snap On, finished my thirty second task, put it back away and went and got in the truck.
Fuck this, for five bucks and change, I am getting some cheap screwdrivers to seed that garage with again.
Stay tuned for next weeks installment when I have to go right back down there and buy a bunch of cheap Flat Blade screwdrivers again….
There is no winning this battle.
