Man loses drill on patterned comforter: 'Whipped myself into a frustrated rage'


A photo of a drill camouflaged on a patterned comforter is making waves online after a frustrated homeowner seemingly lost the power tool in plain sight.

A Reddit user shared a photo of the scene on the subreddit r/WellThatSucks after spending far too long searching for the drill, which was, naturally but infuriatingly, right in front of them the whole time.

“Whipped myself into a frustrated rage trying to find my drill for half an hour,” the user captioned their image.

At first glance, one would probably not notice the black-and-white drill at all — its pattern blends in eerily well with the floral bed covering.

But eventually, the drill’s logo give away its clever hiding spot near the foot of the bed.

Fellow Reddit users seemed both delighted and perplexed by the trippy image, which has been upvoted more than 88,000 times since it was posted on May 5.

“Did you find it yet?” one user joked.

“It took me way too long to find it,” said another.

“Happens when I need my glasses to find my glasses but I can’t find my glasses because I don’t have my glasses,” related a third.

One savvy user even offered up the photo as a perfect example of why drills and other appliances are often made in “bright, ugly colors.”

Next time you look to pass up on a bright-orange tool kit to opt for a more stylish set, think about all the time and stress it might save you.
