Hengmee......

For anything that you just can't quite remember it's name....usually used in the following kind of situation....

"Pass me the wotsit, will you?"
"Which wotsit"
"You know....the Hengmee"

Often accompanied by finger pointing and random mime movements demonstrating the correct use of the Hengmee.

:D

Using my tools?

That's a running joke onsite now. I always borrow everyone elses tools.

They ask where's my tools, "In my toolbox stupid"

I want to keep them looking shiny and new...
