  7. Been there myself. We now have a bowl in the kitchen cabinet for all my keys. Unfortunately the bottom of the bowl is now filled with keys that I have no idea what they fit.

    I went back into this restaurant I ate at and went back to the table I was at and the Waitress asked what I was looking for and I said "My Sunglasses" and she said "They are on your head"...Man I felt Like an Ass...:p...I'll never forget that...and she did have a smirk on her face...Quite Justified at that...;)

    I heard speculation that you get it all back when you get to heaven.

    Lost the chuck key to one of the lathes at my old job for half the day. Found the damn thing in the refrigerator at lunch time. I can't figure out for the life of me how it ended up in there. I was the only one in the shop that morning too.

    I guess C.R.S. disease gets the best of us from time to time. Hell, I ain't even old yet!

    My cousin is a real life CSI and has his own lab. He was showing me how he may look at a paint chip under a microscope and shave off layers with a razor Blade. First think I ask him was how he kept from loosing the evidence. I told him I routinely misplace bolt and sockets, and recently a 1 inch combination wrench.

    I used to blame my boys for not putting tools back when they used them. The boys moved out years ago and the tools still go missing. Go figure.

    Whenever I work on something I put the tools I'm using to do the job and any hardware involved in one of those plastic oil drain pans, keeps the mayhem to a minimum.

    I just figure its a normal day working on my stuff. 2 hours actually working, and 6 hours looking for something I sat down someplace. It may even be the same item several times in the same day...
    I have 3 sets of welding gloves on top of my welder, nearly every time I need to weld something I have to look for a pair of welding gloves because all 3 pair are some where else.

    Lately, I seem to loose a lot of stuff when I'm working under something on my back. I might be putting a nut onto a bolt and drop the nut. I can hear it hit the floor by my ear, but do you think I can find it? NO! Even after getting up and searching the entire area, that stupid nut (or what ever) can't be seen. After I give up and get another nut (or whatever) and get the ride out of the way to clean up, sometimes I still can't find what I dropped, or its several feet away from where I was working.

    Work on cars they said, it will be fun! It used to be a lot more fun then it is now. Gene

    They say it is always in the last place that you look. I always look a couple more for good measure,then put it in that special place where I know where it is. Then I cant remember where that special place is.

    My best friend and I were standing at the workbench when I set something down and neither of us could find it. And our feet had not moved, so it had to be within arms reach!
