From a country mechanic…
FARM LIFE OBSERVATIONS ON MECHANICS AND FARMING
A dropped socket can run uphill.
7/16ths wrenches have legs.
Measure 3 times; the first two measurements are always different.
Any bolt bin always has one less of the size and length needed to complete the job.
The ratchet is always headed in the wrong direction.
The battery charger unplugs itself.
The first extension cord will always be two feet too short.
The chance of an inappropriate cut is directly proportional to the cost of the piece.
When you think it will take longer to get out the tools than to complete the job, you’re probably wrong.
Dropped screws instantly turn to camouflage.
The odds of dropping a small item is a direct relationship to the cleanliness of the floor.
You will always incorrectly cut the last remaining piece.
All engine compartments have nut, bolt, and washer hiding areas included at no extra cost.
The battery is situated on the side requiring a longer set of jumper cables.
A broken air wrench has little or no impact.
Grease guns are even greasy when they are new.
Freshly welded items always stay warm longer than necessary.
There is a reason that the closest tool is always the hammer.
10 millimeter sockets are the all time “Hide and Seek” champions.
A misplaced tool will always be located once the need has passed.
I’ll agree, EVERY @#@% one of these is true…
