Where Oh Where Has My Screwdriver Gone?

So, one of the teeny-tiny screws on my distance pair of glasses has a habit of working loose over time, and I keep a teeny-tiny screwdriver to tighten it up again.

The problem with teeny-tiny things, of course, is that you can't find the bastards when your glasses are broken.

Turns out that a steak knife serves the purpose nearly as well, and is a heck of a lot easier to find.  (Just fumble around in the cutlery drawer until you start bleeding; that's the one you want.)

1 If you go back to the place you got the glasses, they can put in a longer screw and put a bolt on the other side. Then it won't come loose any more.

2 Here in the US, pharmacies and grocery stores sell little kits for about a buck that contain a couple of screws, a couple of pads, and the right size screwdriver.

3 Steven - a good idea.  It's one of those things that's so easy to fix temporarily that I've never bothered to fix it permanently.
Rick - thanks, I'll take a look and see if I can get one of those kits.

I have one of those cheap sets of screwdrivers and tools for situations similar to your's.  They are very useful, in a nice small package...Now, where did I put my small set containing the small screwdrivers again...?

5 The beauty is they're so cheap you can buy a bunch and have one in each room, one in the car, one in your desk at work, and so on.

6 Pixy, is there any way to specify a time for an embedded youtube viddy in a post?  For example, let's say you want to have the viddy start at 4:33, instead of 0:00...    Thanks!

7 I should be able to add that, let me check the necessary parameters.
