Default Ever had THIS happen ?

Dropped tiny coil spring and screw, spent 20 minutes looking for spring(found screw right off), 10 minutes making a new spring 'that'll work', picked up screwdriver to install and the 'lost' spring is sticking to the magnetic tip of screwdriver.......and 5 minutes typing this post !

ops: ops: ops: ops: ops: ops: ops: :roll: :roll: :roll:

more than once! I always loose small screws when I swore that they were in my magnetic tray, so I spend an hour looking for a replacement screw and then find the old one stuck to the bottom of the magnetic tray :!:

Years ago I had a roadster with no front brakes and Airhart disc on the rear. We went to change them out (8 pucks) and one rolled into the corner of the shop. It was never found...

Always fun when you see it hit the floor and the floor seems to eat it

Too funny... so true. Lost a factory SBC valve cover hold down tab last weekend (its a damn triangle; not even that small!!!) gave up & grabbed one from (mixed bolts & nuts bucket).... I laughed out loud thinking about how my wife & kids give me CRAP every time I pick up a bolt, nut, washer, or any useable part I find in a parking lot or on the ground everywhere we go!!! Suckas!! I DO use them.... I have a 5 gallon bucket full of them from the last few years. BTW: backed the car out & it was stuck in the tread of my front tire.... threw one back in the bucket.

Dropped a 80 pitch thread measuring wire and I never did find it. Used a magnet to search and still never found the thing. “Black Hole Phenomena”.

Back when I had to book in an arrest you had to check your firearm in Sallyport before entering booking in detention. I would always lock mine in trunk. Weeeellll back in service went entire night shift several car stops realizing I had no firearm in my holster. Glad chit didn't hit fan. talking about after shock. whewwwww.
