    Me and a guy at work were measuring something one day and i did my side then he did his. I asked what he set his side on and he said seven thirds I just looked at him and he stood there looking back and finally said "what" I said show me where that mark is on the tape.

    I was measuring a gap once to put a metal plate over, had a new hire measure it and I asked him the measurement and he told me it was 12 and 4 little black marks. I ended measuring from then on lol. I've seen a lot over the years that couldn't read a tape, even added in a tape measure reading part to the weld tests I'd give

    That would be 2-5/16+ on a tape measure.

    We all waste a lot of time we will never get back. That’s what I thought this site was for.....
  11. One of the oldest tricks in the book to get out of doing something. I don’t recommend executing it on the job , but it’s truly magic for the wife and mother in law.

    There’s a smart end and a dumb end on the tape. If I know someone can’t read a tape, they hold the dumb end.
