    You've got your bass all tuned up and it's on your lap or sitting somewhere. Somebody decides to be cute and play with one of the tuning keys, even though you are watching. You get pissed at him and tell him not to do it and he says "Oh don't worry, I put it right back where it was." I'm not sure why that bothers me so much cause it's not hard to tune one string, but it's just the idea that irritates me.

    I've heard that back when the Beatles were playing under the cloud of screams George and Ringo would do this to Paul before every show, it took him three sets of tuners before he caught them.

    Before they grap the tuner key, pop their hand with the back (or front) of the headstock. My friend stopped after one attempt with this method :D .
