When it's Saturday, 8am and you walk through the freezing cold to the hardware store, just to find out they don't have the particular nuts you need in stock...

...might as well go back to bed until Monday 🙄


@fribbledom That must be a bad store if you couldnt find the nut you needed

Actually I wasn't that surprised. Finding non-metric nuts in Germany can be tough.

@fribbledom ohh. I guess so. In the small town/mom and pop stores in USA you can find just about any nut bolt or screw you need. If that need they can even thread you a new bolt or tap some nuts.
