If you're feeling particularly magnanimous,(or haven't been royally stung for awhile - oh that's right you're married ) get some cheap piece of crap on sale at the drug store like one of those tarnation ripoff handy-stitchers! take it home, try it on the nearest envelope and instead of stitching the pin will pop out. tear it apart, loose 1 screw, do the hands&knees&flashlite trick for awhile, go get the garage magnet thingy and start sweeping the rug for it, fail to find it anyway, take the main junk into the heater shed and peen the dam pin, use a screw from an old carb kit, put it back together, finally try a piece of real plastic tarp and have the needle pop out and stitch yer thumb. well now's the time for patience and it's dark anyway, so make some coffee and come up with a resolution. coffee and all the parts in-hand, go back to the drug store & ask the nearest checkout lady for the manager. (smile, be careful not to raise your voice or otherwise tip him off) and very politely ask him if they have management medical coverage. look him straight in the eye and sip your coffee til you're sure the significance of your question has soaked in. suggest to him that some of his merchandise may be less than top quality, pull your bloody thumb out of the bag and ask if he'd kindly get you a box of bandaids. when he does, swap him for the bloody bag of sale junk you lost a whole afternoon to, and leave. at least that's what i did today. :)

Never get a woman anything that has to be plugged in. i think the manure spreader would be the best.
