Little Things You Hate

Going to the grocery store and forgetting why I'm here. Decided to stall for a few minutes and still no recollection. Fuck you Woolworth's! I don't need your barage of advertising!


Really hoping I don't discover I need toilet paper in the morning. Nah jokes...I brought some a few days ago.

I expect to lose grubscrews so put a sheet on the ground.
I always put a towel under any time I pull a bike apart. I put the screws either in an old take away container or in line that I removed them on another towel so I can put things back to easily.

I learnt the hard way and spent heaps more time on 1/2 hour jobs that led to searching in grass for a single unobtainable bolt. Totally avoidable laziness and stupidity on my part.

You calling me lazy and stupid? ;)
I usually lose them fitting or repairing locks on doors. I never think of putting a sheet down because my confidence in myself is so total I never consider I’ll drop one..... until I do. Yep you’re right. Lazy and stupid.

I have the lazy and stupid crown here :)
We can share.

Anyhow, it is easy to cut corners and think all will be fine if you just go ahead and many times it will.....but, when bits get lost then it is just an avoidable crap situation.

I have a few tiny bolts hidden in the backyard lawn now. No one alive will ever see those again. I spent time searching unsuccessfully and the only thing I learnt was 'try to be smarter next time'

Get yourself a strong magnet. Many many times I've managed to look and feel (oh so slightly) less stupid, thanks to the wonders of my attraction wand.

When you start getting old like me, you end up with carpal tunnel and no matter how hard you try to hold things you end up dropping them, also have lost some feeling in my finger tips so not sure how tight I'm holding things these days, It just starts happening gradually ask any old trades person that works with their hands all the time.

What do you mean by spiritual? No, that’s getting into religion and that’s a one way trip to tedium...

Like I said, at the time I had my reasons for zero respect for the customs of the locals.

I have waaaay more respect for natural wonders like that than humans. View from the top was monumentally astounding. That could be said to have been spiritual.
Have to say that I enjoyed climbing Ayers rock when younger

My Dad had one and they are pretty impressive. Will have to get hold of one. Thanks for bringing that one up and it is something we all should have in the shed.

As for putting grease on the bolt, that just ensure that 1) I will drop it after cleaning it up nicely, greasing it, and as I'm about to slip it back into place....2) that it will be easy to find as I just need to look for the fuzzy lump of shit on my floor!

You only put a dab of grease on the end of the allen key so when you insert the key the grub screw (think very small screw that has no head. Not a stem bolt) will stay on the allen key.

The outside of the grubby eon’t get that grease on it (if you don’t have antiseize or loctite on the thread you should atleast grease it ya lawless monkeys)

But how will you find it when you drop it, if yiu don't have it covered in the fuzz attracting grease?
