That moment after you've already pulled carb off and begin to take apart for cleaning and realise you already used that new can of carb cleaner you just bought and are now out

Is that similar to breaking out the paint gun after a long period only to open the can of paint and find out all the paint dried up and is worthless?

Yes I think you got the idea, DOH!! it happens to the best of us.

I had bought a new can few weeks back for this particular carb cleaning, but end up using it on some caked on grease on my OH160 I was cleaning/prepping for paint. I remembered that when I starting tearing carb apart.
Been there with the paint cans too, not to forget the partially used tube of caulk or the half tube of RTV for gaskets that was dried up when I needed it . You would think I would learn by now

Call me a bad salesman, but i usually ask if someone is buying a tube ov silicone for one jub or if they will be using alot of it. I suggest the smaller tube just for the fact that the next time they go to use it and it's dried up they won't be as pissed if they wasted $3 instead of $10

Worse yet: when you say to a your neighbor "I've got exactly the stuff you need to get that carburetor cleaned out, right over....here..."
Then you sing with Willie, "On the Road Again!"

I don't know how many times I have reached on a self to get something and woop's it is either toast or not enough left. That's when I whip out the old trusty phone and call the wife to go pick what ever I need up for me. Usually in 15 -20 min's she is pulling in the drive drops it off and away she goes again doing what ever she is doing.

or get out the paint gun and realize you forgot to clean it the last time you used it.
Oh, that is bad....VERY bad! Quite similar to using hardener, then leaving the mix in the gun just a little too long!
