Socks.  We always have single socks on top of the dresser waiting for their mates.  Some are found the next time we do the wash (How? I don’t know because I empty the hamper everytime I do the wash).  Some are forever gone into the depths of despair.

@lefeymw: Smart!  I’ve thought about doing that but it is so expensive to buy new socks.  I can’t part with any of them and I don’t kow why! lol

Pens.  I can never find a pen that works. 

And scissors. I have 30 pairs of scissors because they all disappear all the time. I can only find 1 or 2 at any given time and they get moved to different drawers around the house.

That stupid gremlin stole my camera battery, and not one of those cheap ones I can pick up at walmart or the local camera store.  No, it was the special order kind that is EXPENSIVE!  I literally want to punch him in the neck!

He steals socks from me. He may also be called the dryer monster.

He also leaves my cell phone and keys in strange places.

I have a strange type of house gremlin that doesn’t take things, he leaves them. I find spoons everywhere. I’ve found them in my underwear drawer, my closet, under couches, on the treadmill. Literally everywhere.

And they’re not even part of our silverware set. That’s the weird thing. Surprised

In our house it is the containers and the lids to the containers that the gremlin steal. No one will fess up to taking them and leaving them somewhere, so it has to be the gremlin; right??? I have to purchase more containers every few months. It is rather annoying… Yell

@tksjewelry: Yes it is pretty creepy. Thankfully the gremlin is at my mom’s house and I don’t live there anymore.

When I was in high school I thought maybe I was leaving them everywhere by accident My friends and I shared lunches so sometimes I’d end up bringing their cutlery home by accident and somehow maybe (??) left them around the house. But it still happened even after leaving high school and didn’t use any other cutlery but our own. 

So yea… very strange and creepy.

One shoe from like a ton of my pairs of shoes! seriously, I can never find the other shoe when I need it most!  Probably because I moved recently and am still settling in so they’re all over the place, but seriously… where are my shoes?!?

He stole my barber scissors, three memory cards for my camera and at least four spoons. I bet the Gremlin took them and brought them to @Gingersnap mom’s house.

Rubber bands for my hair. They forever go missing. Usually when the sneaky gremlin hides things I find them after a good cleaning. Not rubber bands. They are gone into the abyss.
