I tried that but everything got mixed up anyway. So we had two chests and were wandering between them looking for pieces. Then my son started buying his own tool sets. What a mess!

Nice sign Bandit. Good luck with the rules.
My Dad used to complain that my brothers and I had taken his tools and not put them back and he couldn't find them (and maybe he was right most of the time), but twenty years after we had all left home and lived in different towns, he admitted that his tools still went missing.

One of my dad's favourite expressions " My grandson will get even !" I had two sons, and they did.
A man of foolish pursuits

Happy birthday!

Yep guys have nothing in the end.  Either it belongs to the wives or kids.  Laugh Laugh Laugh
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

I know a good many wives and life partners who would beg to differ with that statement.

My youngest daughter is 16, and has a boyfriend...my wife almost got me a t-shirt that said “Don’t touch my tools or my daughter!”
