    Last weekend we had a larger family dinner / birthday celebration.

    My dad forgot to charge his smartphone so he couldn't take pictures.

    The Ravpower RP-PB33 USB powerbank came in handy; also it charged his phone via USB only slowly, it was enough to let him operate it and take pictures.

    Small things can be helpful not only to oneself but for others too.

    Had dinner with family at a restaurant outside seating; after sun-set it became dark quickly.
    Luckily there has been a small candle in a nice glass bowl at the table.

    As we had to wait for the waiter (Is this where the name comes from? SCNR) for a longer time my mini BIC lighter came to rescue - family was amazed, with some jokes about me being prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse with my small EDC setup; i took this as a compliment.

    Generally speaking it's a two item minimum most days. Today it's two pens, Leatherman Wave for pliers, CRKT M16 folder, and a few gloves out of the dump pouch. Most everyone knows I carry two lights, so it's the MT or lights that get requested.

    Had to replace the toilet seat and cover (because the soft-close mechanism broke and family insists on the comfort to not manually closing it, and i didn't want to hear the "bump" when they dropped the seat-cover-combo which sooner or later would break the porcelain body of the toilet).

    Handy came my Ti3 AAA flashligh (tail standing!) to light up the underside of the toilet and the Knipex Cobra pliers from my EDC bag to unscrew the old seat.

    The mini ratchet with a PZ2 Philips bit from the same tools pouch managed to mount the new seat.

    Job done without a need to grab my "serious" tool bag.

    Friend called me to know if I could help open a trunk he inherited with no key. My wife had some extra keys she collected so I took one (with her permission) and used the needle files i carry to recut the key. 15 minutes later we had the lock open. My wife and friend both laughed and asked if I had a little burgler in me.
