Abbreviated title:

What are things you find in storage units constantly but when you need one for yourself you can't find one around the house or shop to save your life!

My short list:

tape measures
tweasers
nail clippers
Sharpies
duct tape
band-aids
Tupperware containers with good sealing lids

Plastic totes & boxes...ironically. When I don't need them, I have way too many. When I do need them, I'm out.

Tape measure has to be number one.   Have about ten and couldn't tell you where one is right now.

Also, zip ties. (Decent) Tarp. And last but not least, pennies.  Millions of pennies and I never have one when I go thru a drive thru.......

It says something like "Look Out! We got a bad a$$ over here!" I think I picked it from a topic thread here a couple of years ago when some buster got on here acting like he knew it all about the biz and got called out on it.

I always need a bottle opener, I always find them in lockers, yet I never have one.

Did I find something odd, or is this normal?
