Tool Belt Tony’s Tutorial

My Disciples,

As you may be aware, the Guardians sometimes refer to Me as “Tool Belt Tony” on account of My affinity for tools and building projects. Well, I do consider Myself to be a bit of an expert on the proper use of tools and, being a generous Leader, I like to share My knowledge whenever the opportunity arises. This morning I discovered that the Guardians left a screwdriver on the living room floor, so I thought I would seize the moment and give you a quick tutorial on the proper way to use this basic tool. Here we go.

The first thing you’ll want to do is get into the proper position to pick up the tool. I recommend using a lateral approach as demonstrated here.

Depending on where your Guardian leaves their tools, you may have to reach over obstacles to grab them. Here is the proper technique.

Now, to pull the tool toward you, you might need to grip the end of it in your teeth, like vith.

There! Now you are ready to properly use the screwdriver!

All that’s left to do is to wait for someone to bring you a screw and two pieces of wood that they want to join together. They should put the screw on the end of your screwdriver, hold the wood up against the tip of the screw and turn the wood until the screw is all the way in. So easy!

I hope you have found this tutorial enlightening. I may have more in the future if the Guardians should once again forget to put away their tools. I’m hoping they leave out the circular saw!

    I so wish someone was there with a screw that needed tightening. Oh well, perhaps next time. Your mastery of tools is extremely impressive Leader Otis. You must be very proud of your skill.

  3. Aha…! I KNEW Mr Chitters had been sneaking my iPad and reading this blog! I wondered where he learned his technique for handling my paintbrushes and now I KNOW! Otis’s influence is more widespread than I realized…
