After doing a little repair with super glue, I put the tube in my pocket and forgot about it. Later, when I saw the tube cap resting on my workbench, I instinctively rummaged in my pocket and found that my pants were firmly glued to my thigh. I headed to the bathroom and grabbed a razor blade to free myself. Hearing the hustle and bustle, my wife came to help. But when she saw my situation, she burst out laughing. Fortunately, with delicate slicing, I was able to get the job done. It would have been much worse if something else stuck. –Jim McMichael
After double-checking my cut list for the bunk bed I was building, I cut all the lumber to the final width and length. But when I started assembling, I discovered a problem: each piece that was supposed to be 39 inches long was 36 inches long. A quick calculation checked what I already knew: I had cut about $ 100 worth of 8/4 3-inch maple planks too short. I checked my cut list: I had correctly spelled “39 inches” as the length for those pieces, but just below, I had also spelled “36 inches”. Was I thinking of adding tenons or making the bed narrower? I have no idea. When little things go wrong in the store (I bang my head, snap my finger, drop a box of screws, etc.) I can handle it. But when it happened, I went upstairs and watched TV without thinking. –Raymond Ladouceur
