    In new construction I always see the sheetrockers pissing in the battubs . Seems Ok, but they usually have a test plug in them. Smells really nice in those hot summers when that stuff dries out a little.
    I am waiting to see one of the doing that to a condensate drain though...

    Flashlight, I always need one when I go into an attic but seem to always forget about my flashlight, I avg. about 2 flashlights per month, I tend to lose them like hell, my boss is getting ready to start buying me the two for a dollar special

    It's always the tool I take out of my bag the day before thinking "Hmm. Don't use this one often. I'll take it out to lighten the load....".

    I always carry a LED headlight in my toolbag.

    I love those things, keeps both hands free.

    Now if I could just remember to pee first.
    We've been doing so much,for so long,with so little, that now we can do almost anything, with nothing at all.

    BOY ISNT THAT THE TRUTH, Im always loosing my flashlights. I never buy good ones anymore. I have always been using good ones but I dont have a space in my pouch to carry one. I more then often loose them on bid calls then on service calls tho. I guess with the new LED lights I might be able to get one Im happy enough with that fits in my pocket so Im never setting it down like the three d battery lights.

    i have not lost a flashlight in at least 10 yrs. bought mag charger and mounted charging cradle on floor hump. grab it first thing getting out of truck, if its not there i know its at last call. $100 dollar flashlight is worth going back for.
