Default Dssapearing tools!

Why when you need a tool, for example a screwdriver for me to fit the motherboard backplates, do they all dissapear from sight?!

Arrgghhh, haha.

I keep a full screwdriver kit (26 piece kit) at all times, up to date. I also double up on very used stuff like #1 and #2 Phillips as they are what I most commonly use. As well as my dad has a full set of screwdrivers as well.

About loosing things, I was having a fondue and had it all ready except for the fondue fuel. I searched and searched and searched, couldn't find it tried kerosene. Burned black, created suit and wasn't able to cook the food. 10 min after i finally cooked the food (on the stove), I found fondue fuel.

Thats the thing DJ-Chris... I had a box full of screwdrivers... just...I can't find the box...
Gets to the point where it would have been better to have kept the screwdrivers seperate, since at least you'd have a chance of finding one of them... haha
