    Girlfriend's boss somehow broke off two grounding posts (from plugs) in an electrical receptacle. Used my Klein ET300 circuit tracer to kill the appropriate breaker and the LM Charge ALX on my person to remove them before restoring power. I also noticed the electrical work at their location is... creative? Not sure how it passed inspection and they complain about rooms and walls losing power randomly. Fun times.

    Rakija, are you from Serbia by any chance? Zdravo, kako si? ..and also if you're not, you get a hey either way haha.

    On topic, I used the least interesting part of my EDC, a plastic bag that I keep in my backpack to save the day when we realised we had nowhere to put rubbish from the takeout we had in the car. I refused to let anyone put their stuff in said garbage bag until they apologised for laughing :D

    I spent a few weeks in Belgrade last year (mostly in hospital though haha) and I look forward to going back and seeing the country properly - when my Serbian is better than basic greetings and the word for potato (only know that one thanks to a lady in a borek shop!). Beautiful country mate, and amazing food :)

    Used my Sodbuster to cut bagels for lunch, used my Boker Vox prybar to prise off a key from my keyboard that was jammed down. Used my L11c to check under the desk for a sharpie that has gone walkies.

    I used my Super Tinker's can opener to take off my front liscense plate to clean it. The Phillips driver was a hair smaller than the screw holding the plate, so the can opener saved the day. :)

    Used duct tape at work for something where attaching clip was lost.
    Looked ugly but it worked.

    Also, a double head ( standard/Philips ) screwdriver is EDC in the work bag. I used it to unscrew and salvage a few odds and ends from stuff that the office is throwing away.

    A small calculator is part of my EDC these days and I used it frequently the last few days to keep an eye on my stocks (risks/opportunities).

    While at lunch I found our table had one napkin. I offered to share but when I opened my Protech Godfather to cut it in half, my friend & former boss suddenly didn't want half :eek: Can't imagine why. :giggle:

    Especially after you stuck the knife in his half of the napkin. :eek:

    Forgot to take my bike light with me, so I MacGyver'd this with my Fenix e01 and a hairtie
