Now that all my tools are out of storage and put away, we were hanging a new medicine cabinet and Mrs. NoCo grabbed a tape measure.

I measured out 18" in one direction from the faucet, and 18" out in the other direction -- then just to check, I measured between the two marks. It was 37½".

WTF?

I looked at the tape measure again -- it was one I'd held onto for years just because it so freaking useless. It measures feet and tenths of feet. Not inches.

Into the garbage.

It is only freaking useless for you. There are many times that a tenth-foot measurement is required.
I have some drafting scales that are tenth-inch increments. Very common.
