    Tools are like cash, and liquor, left unattended they tend to disappear.

    I left my tool box at the phone company once on a service call. Went back to get it and nobody had seen it

    I called the cops and made a report. A couple of days later the phone company supervisor called and said my tools had magically reappeared there

    One time as an apprentice I went to a meat processing plant to twork on an ac unit some where in the plant this plant was that if you turned your back on your tools some one would steal them no ifs ands or buts. So of course I left my tool box behind when I left and an hour later I drove back and was sure I was screwed but the machine shop guys picked them up for me whew! but they did have a sign on the box auction : 5pm tool box and tools

    Ok, so Friday afternoon arrived, and of course the whole entire company minus a couple people are on a golf outing. At this point I type up a list of all missing tools and their values. I gave this list to my uncle, who is also my lawyer. He told me to wait until Monday. Which is today, and the boss is still not in. Well, today was also my first day at the new job, so I did not have time to get in touch with my uncle. So, tommorow, will try ONE MORE TIME! If no response, then he will be dealing with my uncle. As far as Im concerned burning bridges is out of the question, Im just gonna blow the bridge and everything around it up!
