I own loads of tools of all shapes and sizes the wife thinks I've a tool fetish - partly true.
I reckon I' ve a tool for most eventualitys.
So why is it everytime the wife says something is broken in our house, I go straight to the cutlery draw for a table knife to fix the problem ?!?,
prime example the wife today informed me that there was a sharp pin exposed on the edging of our laminate floor - so of I trott unconsciously to the cutlery draw, got a cutlery knife and proceeded to bash the pin down. :dizzy2:

p.s my hammer only 10 ft away

But remember you "dont" have the correct tool to do the job so you have to go and buy another shiny addition to your tool box :)

when your young you struggle along with whatever kit you have and are mad busy,yet when you reach a certain age and start to take it easy you get the uncontrollable urge to rush out and buy all the kit that you needed but couldn,t afford when you were young and busy WHY?

I always thought when you start out you don't have all the tools so do things with tools you should not do then when your older you have all the tools but the knowledge to make one tool do everything :)

the reason is the same as this..... you pile every conceivable tool that you think you will need for the job, then get held up, at a standstill, short of the one tool you forgot .

haha, I went to a psychic meeting once with a bird I was chatting up, a long time ago now it seems, and they told me that some people get a invisable imp that gets attached to you.
The imp would play games and take things from you to hide.
You ever put someting down, knowing that you put it right there.....you look around and find it right where you knew it was after hunting high and low. ;)

LOL!

Wait until you get to the stage where you go to the van for just one item. Get there, open the side door and look into that big void and can’t remember what it is you went for. You then have to go back to whatever you have been working on until you need that item again, and then go back for it again.
