Here are a few of them:
- Car/House keys -- Attached to my blue bottle opener keychain with the logo of the company I worked for before the current one bought it. Maddening. The only keyring where I have all of my important keys in one place. I also have about 4 copies of our garage key floating somewhere out in the house somewhere.
- 2 Library books -- I am having a record year having broken 2 CDs from different books on CD and now I have 2 other books missing. I have no idea where they are, but I keep renewing them online in the hopes that I find them. I think it is to the point now for one of them that I need to 'fess up and pay for it.
- RoboGrip adjustable wrench -- I use it a lot, but forgot where it is for now.
- Switch plates for the kitchen outlets -- We took them off when painting the kitchen over a year ago, but I forgot where I put them. Serves me right for procrastinating.
- The New HDTV remote -- We bought the TV in an insane "Black Friday" sale. The remote has been lost for about half of the time that we've owned it.
- My planner/datebook -- Strange since the point of having one is so you don't forget what you have to do...
I almost see the advantages of RFID tagging everything. Although it would be an invasion of privacy in some ways, a little too Big Brother-like for me, it would be nice to look up where all of your lost objects with a couple clicks of a mouse. Imagine how this would change the way we deal with mismatched socks, unidentified keys that we cannot part with, the REMOTE CONTROLS... Hmmmm.
