Have you ever wandered around looking for a tool, literally scour your whole place, looking for a wrench..... and it's in your back pocket. :shock:

You ain't kiddin' Brian! I gotta tell ya'll what my old self did today. I drove to my sons football game, forgot the folding chairs, drove back home (about 10 min one way), forgot what the hell I came back for, so I got some more coffee and returned without the damn chairs!! My two youngest boys reprimanded me for being unprepared, they also informed me that the "I forgot" excuse is now valid for them as well.
What they don't know is..............jeeeeeez, I don't remember what I was going to say.

I do that at least once a day at work. Yeah, I've already been in the impossible situation of crawling through the roll cage and positioning myself to do something, only to discover the one tool I need is either still in the box or on the bench.

On a lighter note, hopefully tommorow, my 66 Chevy II will once again be setting on the ground.

Yes, I have done that many times too. It is about like when I get in the car, pop on the streering wheel, button up all the harness points, hit my toggles, pump the carb, & hit the ignition... and nothing.

I FORGET TO TURN ON THE BATT. CUT-OFF SWITCH TO THE "ON" POSITION ON THE BACK OF THE CAR!!! (AGAIN)!!

Man, I hate that!!

How about getting staged up after your burnout and then pre staged & realizing you don't have your helmet on!
