I have a whole drawer full of right hand work gloves and not one damn left glove to be found.🤬🤬

Am I nuts, or is this a problem for anyone else?

I specifically keep those cheap Jersey Gloves on hand because I can awkwardly wear a "righty" glove on my left hand.

All theories welcome.......Rant off....

My guess is, you are doing the same task on a regular basic and putting down your left glove in the same place most times. Then it falls in a hole, down a crack, a squirrel/ coon takes it, etc.

I have that same problem in my work truck. Lots of gloves for the dame hand and only one for the other hand.

I set them on the center hump on the floor. Out on a jobsite walking back to the truck I realized what's been happening to them.

I've been kicking one glove out of the truck when I get out 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

I noticed the same issue too. No clue why.

My gloves generally never leave the property and I never find them laying around, except as a pair that I set down somewhere and find later. And that’s not that common either…

Maybe try the IRS, they take more of my stuff without asking than anyone/thing else. ☕

By the time you get through the automated answering service and actually talk to someone you might remember where the gloves were misplaced.

I will be happy to remove your left hand surgically, so you will not need the left glove. You can then sell all the new left gloves to others that need only one glove either because they lost the left one or they lost their right hand and don't want to buy a pair of gloves.
I can help find a solution for almost any problem given enough time to think about it.

I have the same thing going on but its the left gloves that pile up. Are you left handed? I am right handed so it is that glove that wears first and gets tossed. Why I keep the left gloves without a right, that's just marrmanu!

You guys having trouble accounting for a glove, I have trouble keeping track of my socks. One is always missing, but I'm not sure which one it is.

All my right hand gloves are covered with grease, or full of holes.
I have lots of left gloves that are perfect.

My buddy had a dog that would always attack his work boots and it was always just the left one. It was like 7 pairs(but really only the left one was destroyed)of Redwings before the dog was a outside dog permanently.

I have the same problem:

It seems that all that I have left is right gloves.
And a nice gradation at that.
All my left gloves look about like middle one. But I buy black gloves to start with. Same reason I buy black socks.
