What tools/gadgets do you always have in your pocket at work?
Well I often wear those overalls where the pockets go right through
Folding Knife, Jumbo pencil, led mini torch, phone, keys and normally there are some nails or screws from something!!!!
Yeah i recently had to go and visit mother work trousers in hand after i kept finding the same pencil on the floor of my van hahahaha
Typical screws etc left over from a job, so nout new there then as we can all relate to no doubt
I usually have a mini writing pad & pencil, work phone, screws/nails, torch & tape measure
I know that feeling all too well lmao
Not good when the money falls to the floor though as gravity will win every-time
Leatherman Wave, Stanley Knife, Stanley 3meter tape, carpenters pencil (the one that got away), Sharpie, and on my keys Little LED torch, Radiator bleed key, and one of those dulux paint can openers that you get free sometimes
Idle B**ger hahaha
It's not that C.W. I'm thinking about the job whilst playing with my relaxation balls.
What is that saying about "Idle hands" ??
The threads called whats in your pockets not whats in your hands thats the trouble with you plumbers your minds are always in the sewers hahahaha
Us plumbers multi task, hands in pockets and balls in hand and mind in the sewers.
Oh that's a good idea, where do you get these relaxation balls from?
Your not having mine, there be second hand.
I don't keep things in my pockets cos usually laying on one side or the other wraming ( northern word for) struggling,stretching,scampering about under baths,under floors, in atics and awkward corners, anything in your pockets digs into your skin or gets broken, the number of times i go out to the van for stuff and have forgotten to pick up the keys out of my jacket pocket is unbelievable, but i still never keep them in my pockets,
i know what you mean tom lots of things get removed and chucked across the room after sticking me when im scralling (cornish word for crawling climbing scampering) bout all over the place
I'm retired now, but still tend to wear my old Snickers bodywarmer at home. Leatherman in one breast pocket, mini Maglite,biro & Sharpie in the other.
Were you an engineer of some form malkie??
Yeah, some form PB. Lol. Installations were my specialities. Didn't make loads of money, but seen a few places & had a few laughs.
The laughs and the experience of working in different places money can't buy malkie.
