As I more frequently find myself standing in various places, wondering why in the hell did I come here, I'm discovering this to be a fairly accurate barometer for my general outlook at any given moment. Sometimes I'll stand there like a stubborn old mule and think, for f890's sake, I am not going back to the other room just so I can remember why I walked into this one! Other days I'll just think, oh, the hell with it, and turn on my heel almost immediately.

The fundamental difference between the old and the young is that the old were once young and they have first hand experience that youth, while interesting is wildly overrated; the young have only been young and can be forgiven for imagining that youth is the only meaningful state of existence.

"Shuffle shuffle shuffle, squeak, hmmmm... Oh right! A sharp knife and one of those big tweezers for the barbeque."

Edit.
But if the item I was supposed to find has been delegated to a different shelf than last time, for reasons completely unknown to me, it will be surrounded by a field of invisibility, I get caught in an endless search until eventually giving up. So it does not always work.

Edit2:
If anyone knows a trick to disable the invisibility field around the things that are on the wrong shelf, please teach me!
For some reason my wifefinds it very amusing.


I put things back in the same spot.

When she moves them I simply have her come show me where she has put it

The next trick is to get her to put them back in the original spot, if you remember where that was !
and if you don't remember you can always ask her I suppose, thats if she remembers.

I think the above scenario could be classified as one of those things that "doesn't really matter". I guarantee this is how she would see it and may just put the item where the sun don't shine saying something like...."Can you find it now?"

Ha! I used to work with a woman who was fond of saying (usually to me), "If it was up your *** you'd know where it is." I do miss her dearly. Not sure if the feeling is mutual.

Another frequent issue is when I do give up and call her for assistance, she ends up in the same situation.

Some people have understood the concept of tidying up as: stuff everything in random boxes and drawers so that most surfaces are devoid of items. When all boxes and drawers are eventually and inevitably filled to the brim, put items behind other larger objects.

This does not help me locate my tools and items I am actually currently using!
I can sit and work with something only to suddenly discover things are missing, "where did i put it?" I didn't actually put it anywhere....

But other than that I am a very happy and spoiled man.

Edit:
So maybe my words of wisdom can be:
Young people have ideals, strong opinions and wildly varying emotional states, older people have achieved variying degrees of grudgingly tolerating individual differences

Young people think they invented everything, especially sex. All students are middle class communists. Old people are set in their ways and you can't tell them anything, particularly the over educated ones, you only have to look around this forum.

When the random rearrangement scenario gets out of hand, try hiding her favorite coffee mug.......warning, you will only do this once!

I recently spent quite some time looking for a screwdriver that I had been using. When my wife told me to sit down and think about it for a while, it became obvious that it was in my pants pocket.

Note: don't shove a loaded paint brush in your pocket when the phone rings........
