You are probably not an adult.
I’ve just had this confirmed. So there we are.
I just bought my second tape measure because the old one went rusty in the basement, which is full of spiders and gardening equipment.
I am a proper adult.
*have a drawer of various sized batteries
What about having a little pot that you put small pointless things in like tiny screws, bits of plastic, plectrums, rubber feet etc?
This goes a long way, agreed
Yet never enough
I had a tape measure when I was about 9. Not sure I became an adult until I was 30+ though
False. At 9 you were an adult AND a boring child
See the clip on the back of it? Use it. Clip that bad boy to your belt. Feel the power.
I own three, does this mean I can retire?
I wear them like the heads of fallen enemies
Tape measuring big things is enormous fun, I don’t think that gets said enough.
When the estate agent came round to our house he used this laser measurer. The joy has gone from that man’s vocation. May as well pack it in if you’re not in it for the love any more.
I carry around an iKea paper tape measure in my wallet at all times and I can’t tell you the number of times it’s come in handy
Measuring things with a tape measure is mr miyamoto’s hobby, hard to think of an adult with more of a childlike enthusiasm
Shouldn’t be so vital a thing to have. And yet.
The key to adulthood is channeling kid you without being a dick
That and talking about roadworks/traffic
Got an antique tape measure from Woolworths, circa 1983
