Is it just me or is it whenever you drop a pick it seems to bounce into the most random spot, whether its behind a chair, under the desk, or some other spot and you have to get down on the ground and search for it?

It always happens to me, even though I drop my pick rarely, it still happens and pisses me off

Happens to me all the time, luckily I rarely use a pick so it doesn't really bother me that much

yeah, those jazz III's are a bitch to try and find once you lose them.
Are you getting a healthy amount of fibre?
#7
Yes, especially when my dad buys clear picks. I loose those things in my hand sometimes.
I swear, I'm attatching mine to a key finder one of these days...
Oh noes!

I more or less have a problem with where I leave my picks. I like it when I find a handful in the dryer though.

I always lose mine....weird when I find 5 under couch cushions later.

One time I had this chick setting on my lap, sucking on my neck, unbuttoning my pants when one of my friends walked in and ruined the whole thing. To be fair though, she was his girlfriend.

Shoopin' that whoop since before you were born, son.
#14
That doesn't really happen to me...
What does happen though is I will set them down, and then, BAM! They aren't where I put them. I lost 24 picks in a couple of months.

it's the shape. it's gauranteed to bounce in any direction that is inconvenient for the player.

Picks have a mind of their own! When you drop them they are like, "YES! Freedom!". I'd try to hide away if I was a pick too, I mean, I wouldn't like to be scraped and hit against metal strings for hours on end.

#28
Sometimes I drop a pick and see it go under the bed or desk or something, but when I go to look for it, it's nowhere to be seen.
#29
Oh my God yes! I dropped one once and it was kinda dark so I couldn't see well. Now when I dropped it I was on one side of my room about 20 feet away from my bed. I couldn't find my pick for about an hour. A couple days I found it under my f*cking bed!
#30
I have a habit of putting my pick between my lips and forgetting it's there while, y'know, I adjust my strap or something.

i don't know why but almost everytime i play my guitar something has to go wrong with my pick
either i drop it in the middle of the song... or it snaps in half... or i just can't find it..
ugh.. i hate that... grrrrrrrrrrrr

especially when i really wanna find a pic.. i know i bought like 20 more last week.. but i can't find a single one.. like WTF! lol
#37

+1 to dunlop jazz III's. Great picks.

Yes, it happens all the time. I dropped it and it fell under my bed, and i have yet to find it :[

I will invent a Pickdar. A radar like system that picks up pick shaped objects in your near vicinity. Never lose a pick again.
