Realising I needed a little step stool to comfortably drill two holes just below the top edge of my office door.

I was fitting two hooks to hang a flip chart. Having shrunk a couple of inches I could no longer guarantee that I was holding the drill properly straight and level.  Standing on tiptoe isn't the best way to use power tools.
