I've recently been accused of 'just having a boy look' when I looked in a drawer for a tool and it wasn't there. Of course a certain girl looked in the same drawer and found it, right on top.

When I set something down in the garage, and then spend time looking for it, my wife will usually say something helpful like, " well when you do find it, it will be right where YOU left it"

Isn't it amazing what those little gremlins can do..... And how all of us are affected by this problem?? Now what was I looking for? I'll remember eventually.

I am pretty sure you layed it in your top tool box drawer on the right side.

Gees I thought I was the only one who did that.

Sometimes it gets so bad that I forget to stop looking after I found what I was looking for, because I forgot why I was looking for what I forgot where it was. . .

I'll tell ya one thing, it sure is comforting to know I'm not the only one that does exactly what you guys mentioned in all the posts I just read. I spend more time looking for things than I do actually accomplishing what I was working on. If I did this work for a living at my age I would starve. Hey, it's still fun.

What you all have to do when you lose something is, throw the rest of what you have away. Guaranteed, the lost item will show up very shortly.

This guy stored his wrench where he could find it but not reach it. Rather graphic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9_Y2iGfbBQ

That has to be a first! I usually put wrenches in my back pocket. Or all over the garage and on the car.
