tape_measureI’ve never tried squeezing toothpaste back into a tube, but I’m pretty sure it’s equally futile trying to re-spool (re-thread?  rewind?) a tape measure once it’s . . . in your hands.  😕

Which is what happens when the tape measure is shorter than the distance you’re trying to measure.

That only occurs outside, measuring foundations; inside, Realtors (myself included) have long used laser-based devices.
