We had a busy weekend once where I helped run a horse show one day and then drove about 100 miles to a different county for my girlfriend to judge a show at their county fair the next day. At the end of the first day I had to pull somebody out of the mud.
The next morning we got to the fairgrounds and an old codger was working the gate. After checking our tickets, he came over to my window and pointed towards the back of my truck with his cane and said "young man, get out of that truck and take a look at this."
I did as he asked and found my 6 inch clevis sitting on my back bumper

Speaking of leaving a wrench on the bumper, just did it again today. Picked trailer up on way home to run new wiring and lights on it for customer. Seen the wrench when unloading truck at home. Was about 7 mile ride, plus my own bumpy 1/2 mile driveway.

No. It just lived under back seat for the last year.
