Twice now I've driven around the block after doing some bearing or hub work on my Bronco and forgot to take the lug key of the lug. Speeds up to 70 MPH ans luckily it stayed put.

I hate it when I leave tools under the hood or they fall between the seat or something. When I worked at Land Rover my buddy lost a pry bar and found it a year later when the disco came back in for a service! crazy, it was just sitting where the hood meets the fender

A while back I was working on the assistant pastor's Suburban, he bought it from the senior pastor a month before. I noticed something shiny on a bolt head and chuckled as I thought...."look, some goofball :brownbag lost a socket!!" The "freeebie" I found was one I left when I worked on it a year before.......always wondered why there was a void where my 14mm socket went. :doh0715:

i've left tools in trucks before
they come back and they're still there (thank god the ambulance companies don't work on their own shit)
i've scored tools other mechanics left behind
and the other day i found my screwdriver in the bronco, it fell down between the batter and core support

Guilty here too...as a matter of fact, mine is still there. Last summer while trying to install my hitch without removing the gas tank, I dropped a ratchet into the frame. I plan on getting it this summer when I finish the job and remove the gas tank.:brownbag
