This gets right up my nose.
« on: February 23, 2015, 01:56:46 PM »

 >>:-( I am doing a job for SWMBO which requires 6x No 8 10m/m selftapper screws, looked in my selftappers box and found 5,now the box must contain at least 1000 screws so you would have thought i would have found 6 screws now I must go out and buy some just to keep the peace,Ray. >>:-(

 ok2

You are lucky to find five screws.

When I need six screws I know that I have them.

But I do not know where they are

Then I take my car and I go to the DIY store to the city

The first course of action in such circumstances would be to ask SWIMBO where she had put the nail thingies that you so carefully left on her kitchen countertop for safe keeping. :-))

   Have you ever noticed that if you need 12 of an item they only sell them in tens, is this American marketing like putting all the sweets at the tills in supermarkets. At least you managed to finish the job.
