It's alright. That would probably push me over the edge, though. I don't think I could handle it.

Yeah, 'cause I'm going to COMPLETELY abandon all sense of schedule and routine because of her death, which occured, like, last night.

Why, why, WHY, dear GOD why do some guitarists lose their picks?! I have the same pick for a year and another one on my desk for 2 years. I need to know why!

I like playing with very thin picks, and a lot of the time they **** out on me and get torn up.

My couch has taken a lot of my picks, they fall through the cracks. Sometimes I can recover them but a lot of the time they actually get into the frame and I can't get them out.
Any spelling or grammatical errors written above are because of my inferior brain to yours. Good job, you won life.

Okay, why are you looking for sympathy randomly?

I'm just curious, when someone says "I've had a bad day at work" and you over hear them do you just walk up to them all pissed and go "Well my grandma died!!!!"?

I started putting the picks in a little shelf on my desk, so the pick gnomes can't get up there or something because my picks aren't disappearing.

Hey, you're not the one dealing with the passing of a grandmother.

Anyway, it seemed like a pointless thread, so I thought I'd inject a bit of perspective, which obviously ended in more sympathy then I would care for, so whatever. Sorry.

Funny thing about Pick Gnomes is that they were once working at the Keebler Elf's workshop making cookies. But when the recession hit, Keebler was forced to lay off hundreds his employees, and thus hundreds of gnomes were sent to the unemployment line. Pick companies like Dunlop saw this tragedy and decided to use it to their own advantage. They hired all those goblins to steal picks from millions of guitarists worldwide for mere pennies an hour. Why, you ask? Because then those guitarists have to buy more picks! Thus resulting in mass profit for the pick corporations and factories.

So now you know the tragic story of the underpayed, overworked Pick Goblins that are abused daily both physically and economically by the evil corporations. I urge you to join the protests happening everywhere to give this abused group of people some relief. Sign up on this website to see when protests are being held in your hometown.

I'm conflicted. On one hand, I am very sorry for your loss (assuming you are being truthful...it is the internet after all). On the other, it's a guitar site and losing picks is a common problem for guitar players. Considering that, it seems reasonable to make a thread about it. And i know losing a pick isn't a huge deal, but if people never posted about things like that and only posted about tragic events we would probably become ultimatetragedy.com

Anyways, no offense and my sympathies.

The pick gnomes showed mercy on me. Yesterday I lost a pick. Then I found it, it was on top of my amp when I took it out of box it came in.

None taken, I'm being 100% truthful but I kinda regret posting it in the first place now.

Anyways I guess I'm just have one of those days where it's one thing after the other (in my case, waking up to the news, going to work, having a sh*tty day at work, getting pissed off about my aunt who didn't even attempt to communicate with her in the past few years, etc.) and then getting pissed off whenever someone else gets upset about something that seems less important. My apologies to anyone who I made feel like a douche, and good luck with the pick gnomes. (I've had my share of those little f*ckers )
