How Many


Pens/pencils are under your truck seat? I don't seem to have any to write with at the moment.

Re: How Many


Gee thanks...

Thought I had a day off today. Now I'm gonna go clean out my truck after 3 months just to find out. There's no telling what I'm going to find.

Thanks for the reminder! :-|

Re: How Many


At least 20 pencils, a few sharpies and probably 2 or 3 pens...

Kirk texted me earlier this week, and it said "wtf is on your windshield?" I ran out to take a look, thinking one of the jerk neighbours did something to my truck. Nope, he left me some new Montreal Canadiens pens. It was good, as I needed some. Thanks, Kirk.

You have no idea how funny this is to me. I almost always have a pencil behind my ear...they inevitably end up in the truck at the end of the day and I grab another one out of the tool box the next morning - until the tool box is empty and I go out to the truck and empty the center console and the cycle repeats

Re: How Many


Just pens and pencils?

I counted 2 dozen of those amongst many a tool I though I lost. Did not know I had that many pairs of channelocks, and screwdrivers...

Re: How Many


If I need a pencil, drill bit, or screw I just go to where I keep them the top of the dryer, my nightstand, or behind my truck seat




Funny story, The drivers door on my truck has a couple built in places to stash stuff. So the top pouch or what ever you want to call it is where I keep a bunch of pencils, pens, markers. Well my pencils kept dissapearing! So after some detective work I noticed that when I closed the door hard a pencil would bounce out of the door. Then when I opened the door it would roll out unnoticed

I usually find stuff like that in the washer or dryer.

I finally got into the habit of checking all my pockets after washing a couple checks That was a little embarassing

Not saying the occasional screw or nail dosent make its way into the washer though
