I was using a flat screwdriver the other day, got to working on something else, and needed the flat tip again...... Couldn't find it, got by with out it till I started working on something else and needed it again. A more thorough search again couldn't find it. Went in to the house and asked if someone snuck in and borrowed it (I was the only one in the shop) I sat down and tried to remember it's last use, Putting fuel line clamps on old girl. Got on the floor and looked under her skirt to see if I left it up there, nope. Spent another 30 minuets walking in circles looking. Hrumph. Gave up for the night. At work today the flat tip was nagging me all day, so as soon as I got home the search resumed. I put a 6-pack in the fridge and popped a cold one, and looked for my coo zee, not where it is supposed to be, so guess what I found while looking for the coo zee..... yep you guessed it, the flat tip. It was behind a vice, and the coo zee was next to it.
So the moral, If you misplace something, misplace something else, you will find the first item.
